The trigger tool can be used in a variety of different ways.For example, the tool can be used to clear tags, groups, and lists from assigned contacts. If the users only want contacts to be assigned to one list or one group at a time, this tool will allow the user to easily remove all groups and lists assigned to those contacts. This can be done as often as needed by partnering with a scheduled job.
