If the tool you want to integrate with Contractbook is not yet listed under Automations - Integrations, you can choose one of the following custom integrations:
What are Webhooks?
A webhook can be described as a lightweight, event-based API that powers one-way data sharing across the web. Webhooks are an effective method for your applications to communicate with each other.
In essence, webhooks allow you to send real-time data from one application to another whenever an event occurs.
How do Webhooks work?
Webhooks are different from APIs.
While APIs need to pull data from a server periodically to stay up to date, webhooks simply push data to a unique URL as soon as a given event occurs. Therefore using webhooks is faster than using APIs and requires fewer configuration steps.
Webhooks are HTTP POST requests that carry a payload and are transmitted to a unique URL.
Using webhooks triggers and actions in the Automation Builder lets you automatically receive or dispatch event-based messages about your contracts inside Contractbook.
This means that you can build simple workflow automations between Contractbook and third-party applications, even if we do not have a native integration to these.
You can use webhook triggers and actions to achieve this:
Webhook Trigger → Receive data from a third-party application into Contractbook
Webhook Action → Push contract data from Contractbook to a third-party application
This allows you to:
- Automate manual work steps in your contract management process across applications
- Accomplish consistent data across all of your applications
- Eliminate the risk of manual errors and tedious manual work
For example, you can set up an in-app automated workflow in which each time a contract is fully signed, a renewal request will automatically be sent to Google Calendar by fetching the exact renewal date of the signed contract.
- Trigger event: Contract is fully signed
- Action: Send a webhook request to Google Calendar and create an event with the contract's title scheduled for the exact renewal date
- Data payload: Data fields: Renewal date
Webhooks It will allow you to integrate almost every possible tool with Contractbook.
