Powerform to trigger automation configuration

Post by user12 » Mon Aug 12, 2019 2:56 pm

Hi all,

Can anyone provide a solution?? If I have the correct configurations in automation, can I create a Powerform application so that the automation configurations can be triggered by any buttons in the Powerform? how can I make it possible?

User12,

You would have to send data to automation via creating a file, sending data or TCP/IP, HTTP or web services or changing a database. so if you click a button, it would have to do one of those things. A form cannot be monitored like a CSV file as CSV is just plain text. We do not have any built-in samples but automation simply just listens for a payload and then applies actions

We have provided a simple sample where you add data to fields on a power forms and it saves that data to file which automation monitors
