Here I bring another tool to make Glide APPs more useful and smarter. Many of us have asked and looked for a solution to have a notification when a form, order or event is sent/received from our APP and some workarounds can be used depending on use case.
In my case, I wanted to have a real notification beyond a phone or PC and turn on/off a display, monitor, alarm siren, etc when an event on my APP is fired and I think I have the solution using IoT technology and Webhooks.
Here is my video to show it:
Every time a new order is received by my APP, a monitor is turned on to notify the good news (sometimes it is more efficient and faster than check out my phone/laptop every 2-3 min).
Then, when I confirm or accept new orders and none left, the monitor/display is turned off and the life goes on happily. I only have to wait 2-3 secs to see how my monitor On/Off, is very fast!
This kind of solution might be useful at restaurants or places where you don’t want to depend on a person (or few) to check an APP and begin a process.
My process flows in this way:
Glide APP Webhook IFTTT IoT Device
I hope you enjoy this new possibility/idea and we can create more useful APPs using IoT technology.
Have a great day.
Saludos y feliz fin de semana.
