Trigger an automation instantly from Bubble.io

HI there

I am trying to trigger an automation from bubble.io without waiting for the daily Brevo check.

I want to initiate an automation after a user has subscribed for a free trial.
I am considering to use a transactional email in order create a segment from which it would start the automation. Since Brevo only checks this once a day, I have to separate the first email (sent from Bubble) from the rest of the automation flow.

Usually it should work with an event (e.g. order_completed) that would trigger immediately the automation. But I don’t see any possibility to do this from Bubble.
This seems very odd to me and I think I am missing something, but I cannot find a way to trigger the automation directly from Bubble.

BTW: I do not want to change the contact’s list.

Hi @Paolo , thanks for posting on this community!

I checked here: Connect your Bubble to Brevo integration in 2 minutes | Zapier
but I could not see anything fitting with your use case, unfortunately.

I am not sure that on Brevo you can start a workflow with outside events (like a Bubble event) and without our tracker

@Paolo I found a possibility: Create an event

Every time this Bubble event happens, you could send an event through this API. And in your workflow, you could choose to have the same event as the trigger. Do you see what I mean?

Thanks!
