Webhooks


This feature is available on request.


A Webhook is a notification sent over the web, which transfers data from one app to another when something happens. In the case of surveys, whenever a new response is entered, this triggers a notification to be send automatically. Survey Anyplace Webhook notifications are sent via HTTP POST request, and the response data is presented in JSON format.


Follow through the steps below to set up your own webhook.


Start by logging in and going to the Extra Options tab in your questionnaire. Scroll down to Other options and click Integrations.
