How do I set up external trigger with Zapier

This question was asked by one of our community members on Discord:

Has anyone had experience with setting up a Zapier integration with an external trigger? For example, Client books a job in our CRM => CRM triggers a Zapier action to pass client/job info =>client/job info displayed in appsmith UI & stored in MongoDB.

We can add extra triggers using webhooks.

Webhooks are essentially a way to create a communication channel. It allows you to listen to an event and run a command or take any action you want. Here, the event will be triggered by an API call from Appsmith.
