How To Integrate

Integrate SIGNL4 with Integromat

You can add the SIGNL4 module to any of your scenarios in order to send out reliable alert notifications to your team. In our example we use a super simple weather alert.

Integromat Scenario

A typical example would be a snow or freezing alert. In this case we request the current weather information for a certain city every hour and if the temperature is below zero degrees centigrade or if it is snowing we trigger an alert in SIGNL4.

SIGNL4 is a mobile alert notification app for powerful alerting, alert management and mobile assignment of work items. Get the app at https://www.signl4.com.

Prerequisites

A SIGNL4 (www.signl4.com) account

An account at Integromat (www.integromat.com)

Integration Steps

  1. Create a new Scenario in Integromat

In Integromat create a new scenario. In our example we just need two modules, Weather and SIGNL4.

  1. Add the Trigger

Our trigger is time based and we can just configure an interval of one hour here. As our initial action we add “Get current weather” from the Weather module.

  1. Add the SIGNL4 Module

Now as our second module we add SIGNL4. From there you select the action “Send SIGNL4 Alert” and you fill in the appropriate values. The SIGNL4 Team Secret is the last part if your webhook URL: https://connect.signl4.com/webhook/.

Integromat Weather

You can add static text as well as dynamic content from your previous weather request, e.g. description, temperature or location data.

  1. Add a Filter

You can use filters to send alert notifications only under certain conditions. In our case we only send the notification in case the temperature is below zero degrees centigrade.

  1. Test it

That is it. Now you can save and activate your scenario. And you can test it.

Testing is very convenient. You can run your whole scenario (maybe adapt your filter for testing). Or, you can just run the SIGNL4 module. You should then receive an alert on your SIGNL4 app.

Alert Optimization

SIGNL4 can further increase the visibility of alerts through its Signals and Services section.  Augmenting the color and icon of alerts will provide more relevant information at a glance without having to open the alert.

Change Alert Color and Override Title + Text 

Override text, colors and titles are triggered by keywords set within the mobile app.
