Next, select the New Contact Base trigger and click “Continue.” 

If you have not read the general Zapier article which includes how to connect your Base account, you can do that now. Or, you can connect your Base account within this step of the Zap creation. Once an account has been linked, select it and click “Save + Continue.”
