Mobile alerting with tracking & escalation for Tray.io

How To Integrate
Integrating SIGNL4 with Tray.io
In our example we will send information about a new Task in Salesforce to our SIGNL4 team.
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.
Now you can create a new workflow consisting of three steps:
1. Trigger: Salesforce Task Created
2. Salesforce Get Task
3. Http Client: Here we send the HTTP POST request to SIGNL4 in order to trigger the alert.
3. Salesforce Integration
Our Trigger is a Salesforce Connector with the operation On Record Create or Update. This requires an authentication with your existing Salesforce account. The Trigger will start our flow each time a new Task has been created in Salesforce.
The second step in our flows is a Salesforce Connector with the operation Find records and with the Record type Task. We use this to find the previously creates task with the Activity ID $.steps.trigger.Id.
4. Configure the Http Client
We send an HTTP Push request to SIGNL4 in order to trigger an alert. The URL is your SIGNL4 webhook URL including your team secret. The content-type is application/json and the Body is the JSON payload. In our case we assemble the body dynamically from the Salesforce Task data.
5. Test It
For testing you can create a new Task in Salesforce. This will trigger the workflow in Tray.io and as a result send the task data to your SIGNL4 team.
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.
