Confirm Email Workflow

Hi everyone,

I’d like users to submit entries via an Airtable Form and confirm their email.

With Zapier, I can react to a new entry and send a confirmation email. Easy.

But how do I close the loop? What kind of link could the user click on, that would trigger a confirmation in the base?

Any creative idea?

Thanks,
Tim

Got it!

Zapier has a WebHook trigger. It gives you a link and you can give it a payload via query URL parameters. In fact, even though it says „success“, you HAVE to give a payload for it to actually trigger.

In my case when I call https://hooks.zapier.com/hooks/catch/uid1/uid2?email=tim@test (I removed the UIDs), my Zap get called with the payload „email = tim@test“.

I can then search for the email in the Airtable base and update the entry.
