What is a Webhook?

In general terms, a Webhook is simply a notification sent over the web, which is triggered automatically whenever a specific event occurs.

In this case, the event is a new form submission. Whenever a new form submission comes in, a notification containing the response data is immediately sent to your chosen destination — the Webhook URL which you set in the configuration page.

Webhook notifications are sent via HTTP POST request, and the request body (containing the response data) is in JSON format.

Setup guide

If you need to make a test URL – to collect test submissions – you can do this at https://requestbin.net.

  1. Open Workflows page of your form
  2. Click Add a webhook:
  3. Enter a Destination URL. (This is where we will make HTTP POST requests to):
  4. Now click Save webhook, and you’ll be taken back to the webhooks tab. By default your new webhook will be set to OFF until you turn it on by clicking the toggle.
  5. To test your webhook, click the View deliveries button, followed by the Send test request button that appears:
