Do you need to connect your Arengu form with a third party application not (yet) natively integrated or with your own API? Learn how to do it in a few clicks following this tutorial.
To demonstrate the power of our HTTP request module, we are going to use Todoist as third party app, so you will need:
A basic sign-up form that will create a new task in our Todoist inbox on each submission. Using our own templates to create the sign-up form, it will be able to make an HTTP call in order to create a new task in Todoist.
The API key will be used to authenticate our form with Todoist. You’ll find it this way:
Go to Todoist and:
In case you are using Arengu for the first time, you may not be aware of the existence of our pre-built templates, made to ease the first steps in the creation of your form creation. This time we are going to use a simple but powerful sign-up template:
Once we have our signup form and our API key from Todoist, we are ready to connect both apps: it’s time to edit the flow responsible for the submission, and add the HTTP request module. Pay attention to the section below the step 1: this “Step flow” called “Signup form” manages the logic once the user clicks on “Sign up” or finishes a social sign up.
Now, follow these steps to add the HTTP request action to our flow:
Just below “Store state variable”, add a new action called “HTTP request”.
Although many options are available, we are only going to edit these fields in the HTTP request configuration:
Are all the required fields filled? Don’t forget to publish the flow so that changes are saved.
After publishing all the changes in the flow, go back to the form editor, click on preview and submit the form with dummy data. It’s time to check the inbox in Todoist and…voilà, we have a new task!
In case something fails, note that you can debug your submission flow, just go to the flow editor, and at the top of the page you’ll see the “Executions” tab.
