Configuration is a customization that your end-customers can store for each of their integrations. You can create a new dataslot to store a value from selected or entered by your users. Some examples of dataslots are:

  • Slack - Select a channel where messages will be posted
  • Greenhouse/Lever - Select a job where candidates will be added
  • Hubspot/Pipedrive - Select a stage to which the deal has to be added
  • Docusign - Select a template from which a document will be sent to a signer
Displaying the config dataslot to user

The first thing is to add a new config dataslot inside each applicant

Accessing config dataslot

There are different three types of config dataslots: Select, mapping and text. Look at the below example to set a new config dataslot.

Handling multiple configs

Handling multiple configs is an advanced feature for users who want to store and run different configs for a single workflow. To do so, we need to set a unique id while calling the config() and updateConfig() functions.

Step 1: Setting a unique config id

You can set a unique config while calling the .config() function as shown below. Make sure that config ids are stored on your end.

//creating a config using an id 'configid-1' 

//creating a config using another id 'configid-2' 

Similarly, while calling the updateConfig() function make sure that you also use the respective config id.

Step 2: Using Config id while triggering events

While triggering a new event from the backend SDK, you need to pass the respective config id to use the stored value inside the config.

// Send the "New Contact Created" App Event
    const data = await Client.event({
        linked_account_id:"<Account Id of the user eg:>",
        event: "New Contact Created",
        config_id: "configid-2", //event will trigger a workflow using configid-2
        payload: {
           "name": "Jeff Atwood",
            "email": "",
            "phone": "4151231234",
            "company": "Stack Overflow",
            "role": "Founder"
    //Catch any error
