To connect your ManyChat account to Integromat, follow the steps below:
1. Create a new scenario and choose the Watch incoming data module as the trigger
2. ManyChat's Watch incoming data is an Instant trigger module, which means that data is sent by ManyChat over a Webhook and received by Integromat immediately.
Hence, you need to add a Webhook for each ManyChat bot that you would like to connect. However, you can create multiple webhooks and connect them to the same ManyChat bot too.
To connect your bot, you need to enter the bot's API Token (Access token) as shown below:
3. If you don't already have your API token, head over to your ManyChat bot settings and under API, you will find the option to Generate Your Token as shown below:
P.S. You need to have a ManyChat Pro account to generate the API Token.
Once you enter the token and hit save, you will see the webhook being added successfully as below:
Now that you have connected your ManyChat bot successfully, you can go ahead and build your scenario by adding subsequent modules.
Once you set up a scenario that starts with the ManyChat's Watch incoming data module as the Trigger, you will have to add an action on ManyChat to trigger that scenario.
To do so, head over to the ManyChat flow, click on a button or quick reply and click on +Action as shown below:
Here, you will see a list of Actions that can be applied to a particular button or quick reply. Scroll down and select Trigger Integromat, post which you will see a list of Webhooks added on Integromat for this bot. Simply select the Webhook that is configured as the trigger in your scenario.
That's it! You need not copy and paste anything; just make sure you maintain a proper nomenclature for all your Webhooks on Integromat so that you don't select the wrong Webhook and end up triggering another scenario altogether.
To use the Send a flow module, you need to get the unique ID of the flow you would like to send as show below:
To get a Flow ID, go to Flows on ManyChat, select the flow and copy the ID from the page URL as shown below:
Happy Bot Building!
