Understanding & using webhooks
Webhooks are a way to prompt Akkroo to call a script or send some data to your own web server when a person registers at an event or when payload is captured.
An example of how this might be useful is as follows:
- Event: a person arrives at an event and registers onto the guest-list
- Action: Akkroo sends a payload to a URL on your website, letting you instantly create a user account for that person
Other uses could include:
- Updating a live statistics display in your office
- Sending an SMS message
- Printing a conference label or badge
Each of these tasks would require additional coding on your part, but Webhooks provide a great and simple way to start extending Akkroo today. For more advanced tasks, you might want to consider our REST API.
