As the release of Turbo brought in a lot of questions about the use of Zapier and Webhooks. In this article we will show you WHERE and HOW you should get started. Keep on reading and follow along the steps to create a Webhook.
What are Webhooks?
Let’s start from the beginning. A Webhook simply POST data to a specific URL every time some activity is registered in Dux-Soup. Specifically, when a Profile Visit , a Profile Scan, or an Automation Action has executed. The Webhook will send data of the event that occured, which you can use to kick off a workflow in Zapier. By using Webhooks via Zapier, you can set up a trigger to link Dux-Soup with any other external app. For example, use Google Sheets to store and save all of your visited profiles! Having said that, Dux-Soup Webhook are by no means restricted to Zapier, and can be configured to post events and data to any application.
