Receive Instant Notifications with Facebook Messenger
Connect a Formsite form with Facebook Messenger and receive instant notifications for new results. Useful examples include contact forms, order forms, or support request forms. This Zapier integration triggers after receiving new form results and sends an instant message to one or more recipients.
Use with Results Filters and Zap settings for custom messages that send under specific conditions. For example, add a question about the urgency of the request and a Results Filter sends an appropriate message.
Integrate with Facebook Messenger
Start by building the form that collects the information needed using the appropriate form items. For example, use Short Answer items to collect names and addresses. Be sure to use an Email Address item to collect email addresses.
Multi-select answers use Radio Button, Dropdown, or Checkbox items. Add File Upload items to collect files and the Signature item to collect a signature image.
After completing the form, click the View Form button to submit one or more test results. The test lets the form owner verify that the form works as intended, plus provides sample data for Zapier.
