This is the documentation for ConfiForms Server/Data Center app

However, this might also work for ConfiForms cloud and in most cases it does. But please see this page to understand the differences between server and cloud versions of the ConfiForms app.

This tutorial shows you how to get and send out the change log via email. It is a little bit technical, but the concept and the configuration is very straightforward and simple

In ConfiForms, since the introduction of the "hasChanged" function in version 1.36, you can create a change log of fields that were changed during the last update and send them out to interested parties.

Here is how this can be done. 

(Please take a look at this tutorial to get the basics on how to send emails from ConfiForms - Sending an email with attachments from Confluence with ConfiForms app)

We use Velocity templating features available in IFTTT macro body and we also use the fact that raw object for ConfiForms record is available in the context via name "entry".

This object has a method 


which we will use in this scenario

So, imagine we have a form with 3 fields

  • t1 - text field
  • t2 - textarea field
  • d1 - dropdown field

So, in order to notify ourselves about the change in the value for each field we need to do the following

We use Velocity's #if #end construction and call for hasChanged method for each field we are interested in.

This is how you can get the change log for your record via email in ConfiForms.
