Is it possible to add an action for webhook also? I like to be able to have a button where it would fire a webhook request instead of opening up the browser.
Yes, you’ll need to create an action as a trigger then a Workflow which contains the webhook
@Simon_Robinson What I mean is under the actions “do this” menu. I know you can do that under the workflow but I don’t want to create a field just for it to trigger. Basically it just needs to send a request to a URL I specify with optional prams.
So when the user presses a button, appsheet can just ping that url. Instead of it opening up the link in the browser.
@Simon_Robinson is correct. Currently the only way to trigger a webhook is via a workflow rule (i.e. event triggered)
or a Report (i.e time triggered).
If you want to use a button to invoke a webhook, the button must perform an update that will trigger the workflow rule (i.e. event triggered).
Feel free to add a new feature request to add the enhancement request you suggested. It would be a useful enhancement.
If you need to implement this now, then the approach that Simon and I described will work for you.
@Philip_Garrett_Appsh Where can I add this as a feature request? I did post it under the feature requests category under here. Is there another spot?
