Sending web push notifications automatically with Zapier
You can integrate Pushpad with hundreds of web apps using Zapier, which is a service for easy integration of different services and task automation. For example you can automatically trigger a notification with Pushpad when there is a new item on an RSS feed, a new post is published on Twitter, or even when something happens in any of the hundreds of web apps supported by Zapier.
Notifications are not meant only for your public web apps. For example you may want to trigger notifications for yourself or your team: create a new project on Pushpad (with Pushpad Express it takes 1 minute). Then go to Zapier and automatically create notifications for anything that can happen in the other apps you use (for example someone creates a new ticket or a card on Trello, an error occurs in your logs, a colleague edits a document).
The Pushpad app on Zapier is currently in beta. Feedback and requests are always welcome.
Example: sending web push notifications from an RSS feed
In this example we use Zapier to automatically send a web push notificaion when there is a new item on an RSS feed.
- Open the Pushpad app on Zapier and click Create this Zap
- Choose a Trigger App: select RSS and then New Item in Feed
- Enter your Feed URL (e.g.
- Choose an Action App: select Pushpad and then Send Push Notification
- Select Pushpad Account: click Connect an Account and enter an API Key
Finally configure your notifications:
- Project ID: select a project from your Pushpad account
- Title: enter a title for the notifications (e.g. the name of your website)
- Message: click ☰ near the field and select Title under New Item in Feed
- Link: click ☰ near the field and select Link under New Item in Feed
- You can leave the targeting options blank in order to reach all your subscribers in that project or you can select a specific segment (e.g. if you enter news as a segment, your notification will be sent only to devices that have a tag news)
