Add Webhooks to your videoasks

Do you want to send your Videoask data straight to a web app or URL? If you’re on a Grow or above plan, you can set up Webhooks to receive notifications when messages are sent or received via your videoask.

What are Webhooks?

Webhooks are notifications sent automatically when triggered by a specific event. 

For VideoAsk, this event is a message from a respondent or the creator of a videoask. The notification containing the response data will be sent immediately to your Webhook URL.

Please note that Webhooks are an advanced feature intended for those who know how to work with them. We can’t provide detailed instructions for code development or troubleshooting.

View our Webhook API documentation to learn more.
