    Great suggestion Jimmy! Can you tell us a little bit about your use case?

    Just a few, let me know if you want more.

    Webhook fire on Totango change to:

    • Change in contract status so we can change an attribute on our billing system (moving from demo/intro pricing to full price)
    • Change in specific Journey stage to update Journey stage in Pendo, Freshsales, and our own CRM
    • Attribute flag being set (thinking a Y/N type attribute) that identifies a specific step within a Journey stage to allow us to fire very specific training modules with Pendo (and campaigns within Totango)

    Let me know if you'd like to get deeper on this, but those are a few off the top of my head we could make use of.

    No Jimmy but we will be adding additional "activities" events in the SuccessPlay to support this and additional automation use cases. I will ping you if I need more help. This is something that we will begin work on in the near future.

    Regards

    Vijay

    We'll be testing this out shortly Vijay!

    Any idea when we'll be able to send these kinds of updates to an external system?  I'd love to have these types of changes reflected in our core billing system when they update (w/ a webhook), rather than having to poll every account here.

    Jimmy the webhook option is being added for this. It should be coming soon. Can you share what specific use cases you plan to use the webhooks for?

    Really all of these, the Contract Status, Journey Stage, and Lifecycle Phase(s) over to our software being the immediate.

    Webhook fire on Totango change to:

    • Change in contract status so we can change an attribute on our billing system (moving from demo/intro pricing to full price)
    • Change in specific Journey stage to update Journey stage in Pendo, Hubspot, and our own CRM
    • Attribute flag being set (thinking a Y/N type attribute) that identifies a specific step within a Journey stage to allow us to fire very specific training modules with Pendo (and campaigns within Totango)

    Hey Jimmy,

    We have now added the Webhook action to SuccessPlays and is available in Beta.. Please reach out to your CSM to turn this feature on..

    This new SuccessPlay action will allow you to trigger APIs of 3rd party systems based on events in Totango.

    Would love to work with you closely as you begin adopting this feature.

    Thanks

    Vijay
