Use case

Keboola just implemented a product assessment tool dedicated to OEM partners. The form’s results will show how submitters fare in the various dimensions of data product readiness, areas on which to focus, and specific next steps to undertake.

We wanted to trigger the orchestration that extracts the responses (have you noticed new Typeform extractor?), processes the data, and updates our GoodData dashboard with answers. There was no option to use “Magic Button” to do so because there is no guarantee the respondent would click on it at the end of the form.

You select which form:

Select what will create a trigger:
