How to receive Slack notification when somebody sends a Contact form (or any form) No code No Backend with ActionForms.io
As a developer or web designer, when you create a web form, you need to specify some action. The action is a URL or endpoint that your form will be sent. Meaning that you need a backend (code) that receives your form and send you email notifications, saves the data, and something else.
But what happens if I dont know how to create a backend? Or what happens if I dont wanna create backend for a simple form?
For that reason, Ive created ActionForms.io.
With ActionForms.io, you can easily send your contact forms, surveys, questions, any form or request that you can imagine without coding or configuring a backend.
First of all, you need an ActionForms.io account, its really simple and there is a free plan if you want to try it! :)
Then, you have to create an Endpoint. An Endpoint is a URL where your requests will be sent to the ActionForms.io platform. When you log in to your account, youll see a button that you can create Unlimited Endpoints:
Lets begin writing the basic information for the Endpoint, we need a Name (What you want. Ex: Contact formWebsite) and the URL slug.
Good! Now we have an active endpoint ready to receive form requests. If we look into our Endpoint Edit page well see the Slack Notifications menu, lets click it.
We are at the Slack Notifications configuration page. We only need one thing: Webhook Url.
How can I get the Slack Webhook Url?
We have three steps tutorial inside the same configuration page, but let me show you how to do it!
First of all, we need to click on this link:
This link will redirect us to a Slack page that will ask us to install an App to our Slack workspace. This app is called Incoming Webhooks and allows you to receive notifications via Slack from external sources, like ActionForms.io.
If you are already logged in to your Slack workspace, then click Add to Slack button to install Incoming Webhooks in your workspace.
After installing Incoming Webhooks (in just one click), you need to choose the Channel that you will receive the incoming notifications.
You can create a channel specifically to receive notifications, or just select what you want.
Good, just one more step!
Once you selected the channel, youll see the Webhook URL right there:
Just copy this Webhook URL into ActionForms.io page that we opened before (Endpoint -> Slack notifications):
And thats it!
Save it and you can test your notifications using the button Send test Request that just appears at the top of the page.
Right now we have to different plans. Free and Premium.
Our free plan is completely functional and you can use it in all your projects.
Our Premium plan has a lot of potential features, youll have unlimited power and perform incredible web flows throw your form requests.
