Understanding Operations in Integration Scenarios: Maximizing Efficiency with Boost.space

Operations are related to our integration scenarios. Whenever any task is performed by your integration, it counts as an operation. It is very similar to Zaps in Zapier or Operations in Make. If you run out of your operations, your data synchronization scenarios will stop. Operations are refreshed each month or you can also upgrade your Tier. Typically it takes between 2-4 operations to sync one record to or out of Boost.space (this depends on the third-party tool and the complexity of your integration scenarios). During the first sync, usually, all records are synchronized, and then only changes get updated across your tools, optimizing the number of operations consumed. Please keep in mind that this depends/varies on the possibilities of your source or destination third-party tools.


For example, when your scenario reads a record from Pipedrive, or writes a row into a Google sheet each counts as one operation.

More examples that count as operations

  • read data from an app or webhook
  • search for data in an app
  • create data in an app
  • update data in an app
  • delete data from an app
  • transform data using the built-in tools
  • aggregate a row of data into an array or text
  • iterate a row of data

Depending on the complexity of the process you’re automating, your scenario can perform anywhere from two operations to thousands of operations in a single run.

Don’t worry about using up all your operations before the end of the month or year. You can always buy extra operations or upgrade to a higher tier plan.

Note: There are a few exceptions of modules when Make doesn’t count the operations or counts them differently.
  • Error handler modules (Rollback, Break, Resume, Commit, Ignore) – no operations counted
  • Router module – no operations counted
  • Sleep module – consumes operations, but doesn’t consume data
