Aha!

The Aha! modules enable you to monitor, create, retrieve, update and delete features or ideas in your Aha! account.

Getting Started with Aha!

Prerequisites

In order to use Aha! with Make, it is necessary to have an Aha! account. If you do not have one, you can create an Aha! account at www.aha.io.

Now, every time the activity is performed, the Watch New Activity module in your Make scenario is triggered.

Note

All activity waits five minutes before posting to the Activity webhook. This is to keep the communication concise and to avoid excessive messaging when a user is performing multiple edits at once.

Triggers when a new feature is created.

The webhook URL needs to be generated in Make and then added to Aha!'s integrations settings.

  1. Add the Watch New Feature module to your Make scenario.

  2. Generate and copy the webhook URL.
