What Is A Webhook?

According to https://sendgrid.com/blog/whats-webhook/, a "webhook (also called a web callback or HTTP push API) is a way for an app to provide other applications with real-time information. A webhook delivers data to other applications as it happens, meaning you get data immediately, unlike typical APIs where you would need to poll for data very frequently in order to get it real-time. This makes webhooks much more efficient for both provider and consumer.

When you visit this page, you will see a list of all of the connected apps, along with the date it was initially connected and an option to view the requests.


Configuring the Webhook in Kindful 

Head to AppsWebhooks to get started.

The default webhook would house all of the donor/donation information (it include all the transaction information - donor, email, amount, etc.). 

You also have the option for creating a scheduled report and having this go out as the webhook. It would be once a day rather than live, but would be completely custom.
