Instant Notifications are custom alerts that are generated when a specified action occurs on your GivingFire account. You can send notifications directly to people (through customizable email or SMS messages) or to applications (through HTTPS POST webhooks.)
Notifications are customized on a per-action basis and have one endpoint each. For example, you can set up a notification to email the executive director (endpoint) whenever a donor gives more than $500 but less than $5,000 to the Capital Campaign fund (action). You can then set up an additional notification to text the executive director whenever a donor gives more than $5,000 to the Capital Campaign fund. Finally, you can set up a webhook to send all donations to a custom reporting dashboard. Notifications work well together and there's no limit to how many notifications you can set up, so we recommend creating a wide variety of different notifications to best suit how your non-profit responds to donations as they come in.
Notifications and webhooks are extremely powerful tools to automate your workflow and sync GivingFire records across different systems. If you'd like to get started but would like help thinking through how webhooks can help your organization, contact your Account Manager or email the support team at email@example.com. We'll be happy to help!
