Webhooks: Overview

SurveyMonkey Apply has the ability to securely communicate with remote servers via Webhooks. This feature works in tandem with our Automation system to expand the functionality of Apply’s decision-making and task automation abilities.

If the condition of any given Automation is met, you can instruct SurveyMonkey Apply to execute a number of actions, one of which is a WebHook. A WebHook will instruct SurveyMonkey Apply to contact a remote server, which can in turn perform an external task.

For example: If you successfully process an application from a new applicant, you can instruct SurveyMonkey Apply to contact your external database server to update a record. This could be useful if you wanted to dynamically update a job opening posted on your corporate website after an application has been accepted by your SurveyMonkey Apply site.
