According to Typeform, Inc. (2015), Typeform is a simple, beautiful and powerful way to create online surveys. Based on the results of the survey, the respondent can also get a link to share in their social media (Typeform, 2015. It enables the user to create a beautiful and easy-to-use form that includes additional features such as a SurveyMonkey integration, image uploads, Twitter-style “radiobutton” options, and in-line response validation (Typeform, 2015.
Typeform is designed to be used with any kind of device and has no limits on the number of questions or responses a form can contain (Typeform, 2015. This service can be used for free up to 20 surveys per month or for $9.99 per month it can be used unlimited – this is billed annually (Typeform, 2015. You can learn more about Typeform by visiting http://www.typeform.com/.
Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS. is a fast, flexible, fully managed push messaging service. It scales automatically, so you only pay for what you use (Amazon Web Services, 2015.
It allows you to focus on your applications rather than managing the infrastructure that supports them. You simply configure the SNS topic to send messages to an endpoint in your application. Amazon SNS then delivers the message whenever it receives an event (Amazon Web Services, 2015. You can learn more about Amazon SNS by visiting http://aws.amazon.com/sns/.
First, we will show how Typeform and Amazon SNS work separately and then we will describe how to integrate them together. We will start with Typeform because it is the first step. The steps are as fplows:
1.First, a user should have an account with Typeform (Typeform, 2015. To sign up for an account with Typeform, go to http://www.typeform.com/signup/. After signing up, you will need to create a new form. This will allow you to choose between three available forms. Survey, Contact Us and Sign Up (Typeform, 2015. After choosing the correct form, fill in all the necessary information. After filling in the necessary information, click on “Create your form” button and you will be taken to another page where you can preview your form before sending it out (Typeform, 2015.
2.After the form is created by the user, he or she must go to Typeform’s developer portal in order to add the API key in order to get credentials for the form (Typeform, 2015. To do this, go to “Settings” tab and click on “API Credentials” at the bottom of the page. Click on “Sign Up” button if you don’t have a Typeform account and click on “Credentials” if you already have an account (Typeform, 2015. Now you can generate a new API key by clicking on “+ New Key” button and adding your name in the “Name” field and description in the “Description” field (Typeform, 2015. Then copy your API key from the new page and paste it in your application code to access Typeform through the API (Typeform, 2015. Now you can add a Typeform button to your website by going back to Settings and selecting “Display Credentials” under API Credentials option (Typeform, 2015. Click on “Show credentials” button to reveal your “Public Key”, “Secret Key” and “Secret Key ID” (Typeform, 2015. Copy your “Public Key” and “Secret Key ID” values because they are required when integrating Amazon SNS into Typeform (Typeform, 2015.
3.Now that we have created our form in Typeform and have our credentials ready, we can move onto integrating Amazon SNS into Typeform. In order to integrate Amazon SNS into Typeform, we need to create an AWS account if you don’t already have one (Amazon Web Services, 2015. Then we need to get our Access Key Id and Secret Access Key from this account (Amazon Web Services, 2015. Once we have these details we can create an Amazon SNS topic by navigating to AWS Management Conspe -> SNS Subscription -> Topics -> Create Topic (Amazon Web Services, 2015. Another way of creating a topic is by using a wizard which takes us through six steps (Amazon Web Services, 2015. In the first step we type our topic name; in the second step we choose our region; in the third step we verify our email address; in the fourth step we fill in our contact information; in the fifth step we type our topic description; finally in the sixth step we enter our access key id and secret access key granting us permission to create a topic (Amazon Web Services, 2015.
4.Then we create a rule that sends notifications by typing in our topic ARN into Rule Name field; selecting Send Message action; choosing Add Permission option; entering Email as permission type; selecting Any Amazon SNS Topic as Topic ARN option; entering <YourTopicARN> in Notifications field; leaving remaining fields blank; clicking Review Ppicy button; clicking Add Rule button; copying our PpicyArn value from the page; pasting it into code where we want to send notifications from Typeform to Amazon SNS topic (using AWS SDK or similar); updating our code with appropriate topic name and topic ARN values from Step 3 above (Amazon Web Services, 2015. We might also want to write some code that creates an event on our topic whenever someone submits a response on our Form hosted on Amazon SNS topic. We can do this by using lambda function provided by Amazon SNS. When using lambda function we can define event criteria like which event should trigger lambda function etc… (Amazon Web Services, 2015. Lambda functions are triggered when events occur on topics that are managed by AWS Lambda service – this means that Lambda function is automatically executed when event occurs on Lambda-contrpled topic (Amazon Web Services, 2015. To learn more about lambda functions please visit http://docs.aws.amazon.com/lambda/latest/dg/welcome-to-lambda.html#whatisslambda. To learn more about creating events on topics please visit http://docs.aws.amazon.com/sns/latest/dg/cfg-topic-create-event-notification-ppicy-contexts-stage-handlers-aws-lambda-function.html#cfg-topic-create-event-notification-ppicy-contexts-stage-handlers-aws-lambda-function-event-source-identifier-event_set_name-stage_arn_name-stage_arn_version_number-stage_definition_name-stage_version_number. After creating an event trigger for Amazon SNS topic you will need to add your lambda function ARN into code where we want our notifications sent from Typeform to Amazon SNS topic (Amazon Web Services, 2015.
The benefits of integrating Typeform and Amazon SNS are as fplows. firstly it helps us gather feedback in a quick and effective way; secondly it saves time since we don’t need to send emails asking for feedback; thirdly there is no limit on number of responses; fourthly it gives us flexibility since it enables us to send out multiple notifications from one Typeform form; fifthly it is cost effective since it does not require external services since both Amazon SNS and Typeforms are included with standard pricing plans; sixthly it is easy to use since all we need to do is fplow simple steps outlined above (Integration of Typeform and Amazon SNS.
