The trigger is the starting point of the automation you're creating.

Here you have 3 options:

2) Choose 1 condition --- When the trigger must occur under a certain condition for the automation to occur.
3) Combine several conditions --- When a set of specific conditions must be met for the automation to occur.
Add as many conditions as you like:
Or "Skip Conditions" if you want the automation to occur every time, no matter what,
