Message in Thread

Quip is a mobile productivity app that combines docs, chats, tasks, and spreadsheet in a single app, enabling faster and easier collaboration. Any event within Quip can be set as a trigger for your flow. Whenever the specified event happens, the associated flow will run automatically. 

To set any Quip event as trigger, you first need to switch on the trigger toggle button located near the ‘Start’ icon in your flow. Then, from the list of triggers under ‘All Triggers’ on the right, drag and drop Quip in to the given box. 

Once you do this, select any event of your choice that you wish to set as trigger from the ‘Select Trigger’ dropdown options. Let us have a look at the various Quip events that you can set as triggers.

Message in Thread: This trigger instructs Built.io Flow to a particular flow automatically whenever you receive a new message in the specified room thread in your Quip account. To set this as trigger, you first need to select the appropriate access token for Quip. Then, in the ‘Room Thread ID’ field, specify the ID of a room thread. The flow would run automatically only when a new message is received in this particular room thread. Once you have entered these details, click on ‘Save’, and then ‘Done’ to return to your flow canvas.
