Get Notifications from Notorious B.O.T.

Getting notifications for certain events can be pretty important, but a lot of times they can be pretty generic.

Savvy Zapier user, Taylor over at Sched.org, made a pretty clever way to spice up Campfire alerts:

I created a Campfire user called Notorious B.O.T. and connected it to Zapier. He tells us when signups happen with Wufoo, purchases happen with Paypal and support tickets come in with Desk.com.

Here's what a notification from Wufoo looks like in practice:

Wufoo Notorious B.O.T.

And from Desk.com:

Desk.com Notorious B.O.T.

And finally from PayPal:

PayPal Notorious B.O.T.

I'm especially a fan of the Ka-Ching found in the PayPal notification.

If you want to try replicating this go check out the Campfire integrations, but I'd suggest coming up with your own creative use case. :D

For the curious, here is how you can make sounds effects and the cute little icons in Campfire.

Once your done come back here and share it with us all.

“Zapier is amazing. Took us 30 seconds to setup an integration that saves us 2 hours of work every day.”

Brian Harris, founder of Videofruit
