Ubiqod Dispatches

What is a dispatch?

Available dispatches in Ubiqod platform

When a user presses a connected button, scans a badge, or submits a form after scanning a QR code, the data can be transmitted in real-time to third-party systems (except for redirection interfaces).

With our “Dispatch” feature, you have the flexibility to determine the destination of your data.

There are two types of dispatches available:

Generic Dispatch: This can be connected to any system that accepts webhooks.

Standard Connectors: These are pre-configured to send data to specific systems.

Generic Dispatch (webhooks)

With webhooks, you can send data to any system that accepts webhooks.

If you are using ‘No code’ or ‘Low code’ tools such as Zapier, Make.com, or Microsoft Power Automate, the Webhook type dispatch allows for easy data transmission to these tools.

Configuration

To add a dispatch of type webhook, go the the Dispatch menu and click on the + CREATE button.

Select Webhook.

Enter a label for your dispatch (usefull to find it easily in the future).

Enter the URL where Ubiqod should POST the data.

Activate the Old webhook option only if you need to use the format of the former version of the Ubiqod platform (https://admin.ubiqod.com).

You can enter a custom header, for instance if you need to send an API key. Click ADD + to add new lines.

Data format and sample data

Sample data sent by the webhook : https://storage.googleapis.com/skiply-prod-ubiqod/schemas/callbackexample_new.json

JSON scheme : https://storage.googleapis.com/skiply-prod-ubiqod/schemas/ubiqodhook_new.json

Retry policy

If the server receiving the webhook responds with a status code different than 2XX, Ubiqod will make a first retry after 60 seconds. If the sending fails again, an error will be reported in the logs.

You can setup alerts to be informed by email in case of failure in your account settings.

Examples

Example of use of a webhook with Microsoft Power Automate: Track attendance on site with Excel and Power Automate

Standard connectors

Make.com

Make.com is a no-code tool that allows connecting Ubiqod to hundreds of cloud software applications : read the tutorial.

Google Sheets

The Google Sheets connector allows for the direct transmission of data from QR codes or objects to a spreadsheet.

Step 1: Create a spreadsheet in Google Sheets. You can create column headers that will contain the different data (for example, date, action, site, etc.)

Step 2: Create a Google Sheets type dispatch

Step 3: Select or create a connection with a Google account that has read and write access to the spreadsheet

Step 4: Copy the spreadsheet’s URL into Ubiqod, and click on Retrieve Data

Step 5: Match the available data with the corresponding columns in your spreadsheet

Clockify

Big Query

Google Big Query is a data warehouse managed by Google. It allows for the storage of very large quantities of data. These data can then be used by dashboard systems (for example, Looker Studio) or Artificial Intelligence to provide answers to business problems.

The Ubiqod dispatch for Big Query enables you to send all your data in real time to this database (see the available data).
