Integrating with Splash Follow
Managing data feels like being the conductor of an orchestra at times. There's a lot of noise that needs to work together to tell a story. Splash helps make sure you're always in sync.
This article explores how to integrate your internal systems with Splash to connect your event data and automate your team's workflow.

While our native integrations offer the ability to connect with leading sales CRMs, marketing automation platforms, and applicant tracking systems, we also offer the ability to create custom integrations for any of your preferred systems.
Creating a custom integration
Not seeing your preferred system listed above? Set up a custom integration through one of the following options:
- HTTP Request
- Incoming Webhook
Each of these options provides different value, so which one you choose is entirely dependent on what you're looking to accomplish. We'll go through each of these integrations in more detail below to help you find what you're looking for.
Our HTTP Request integration is our go-to solution when you need to push Splash data into another system that isn't one of our native integrations. This versatile integration only requires an endpoint, meaning it could be used for any specific platform your team uses for data processing. Since the HTTP Request is only a one-way data flow for pushing information from Splash into another system, it doesn't offer bi-directional functionality. That said, this option will require some developer resources to implement.
Here's how we've seen HTTP Request used:
- Pushing data into external CRMs (ex: Microsoft Dynamics 365)
- Sending data to a data lake (raw data storage center) or data warehouse like RedShift or Heap
- Sharing registration data for virtual event platforms across tools
The Incoming Webhook integration can only be customized to anonymize, unsubscribe, or resubscribe guests in Splash. This option require some technical resources - specifically someone with access to make API calls.
Using a connected application
Many applications develop and maintain a connection to Splash that allow their users to take advantage of Splash events and registration information. In these instances, setup and configuration is done directly in these systems and will be managed outside of Splash.
Below are some examples of these applications. Please note that not every connected applications may be listed.
If you need to connect Splash to numerous systems, tools, and platforms (ex: Gmail, Google Docs, Excel, MailChimp, Facebook, etc.), we recommend using Zapier. Since Zapier does all the heavy lifting for you, this connected application is especially helpful if you have little to no developer resources available.
Here's how we've seen Zapier used:
- Sending messages about RSVP updates to Microsoft Teams
- Posting guest registration data to Google Sheets
- Sending emails from MailChimp
Pro Tip: A third-party may support Zapier, but may not support all Zapier functionality. Make sure you're aware of any limitations in place for the system you're connecting to prior to setup.
