Webhooks By Connect is a service that you can set up to receive notifications through Slack whenever there is a change in your Harvest account. This can be useful when you need to stay informed about changes in Harvest without having to check it yourself.
Because I was looking to integrate Harvest with Slack, I chose Webhooks by Connect. I signed up for the free plan, and then enabled the Slack integration by clicking on the “Connect” button next to the Slack icon. This sent me to the Slack website where I clicked on the “Add Integration” button and selected the “Incoming WebHooks” option. I entered my “Token”, which is a string of letters and numbers that Webhooks by Connect generates for me. When I click on “Add Incoming WebHooks integration”, Slack will generate messages whenever there is a change in my Harvest account. These messages are sent through a webhook. A webhook is an HTTP request that is made whenever there is a change in an account.
To create a webhook in Harvest, go to your account settings page, scrpl down to the “Integrations & Alerts” section and click on “View Webhooks”. Scrpl down until you see the “Webhook URL” section. The webhook URL is the URL that will be used when sending messages through Slack. Copy the URL from this section and then go back to the Webhooks By Connect website. Click on the Webhook you created and paste the copied URL into the “Webhook URL” box, then click “Save”. You may now receive notifications through Slack whenever changes occur in Harvest.
There are many benefits to integrating Harvest and Slack. One major benefit is that it saves time for the user. Instead of checking Harvest every so often to see if there are any changes, you can have Slack notify you every time there is a change so you don’t have to worry about checking yourself. Another benefit is that it makes it easier for teams to work together. Rather than having to constantly talk to one another about changes in Harvest, they can just let Slack notify them through messages.
