Out-the-box integration for brilliant basics that your users expect

  • Identity access management: Federated authentication and Single Sign On with OAuth 2.0, or accept anonymous users.

  • Address management: Address postcode lookup flows and map location features powered by Ordnance Survey APIs.

  • Messaging: Send emails with GOV.UK Notify and include dynamic content and file attachment download links.

  • File uploads: Accept files from users with file type, size and antivirus checks out-the-box.  Use our platform file store or configure integration to your own SharePoint site.

  • API manager: Map data to and from your APIs and securely store your QA and Production properties and secrets.

  • Payments: Take payments with GOV.UK Pay or a 3rd-party provider and be sent notifications (*with Govforms' support).

Push and pull with MS SharePoint, plus email, APIs, spreadsheet data feeds and more

  • Data feeds: Upload data spreadsheets or sync them from your SharePoint site and use them to dictate user-facing content, conditional flow rules or downstream data flows.

  • Data search: Validate data entered by your users against your data feed spreadsheets or API-fed data.  Perform matching using our simple rules editor or sophisticated Liquid templates.

  • Send to SharePoint: Push captured user entered data to a Microsoft SharePoint site with SharePoint list auto-mapping, structured multiple file uploads, PDF creation and more.  Configure dynamic templates to perform sophisticated data transformations and enrichments.  Send your data to a SharePoint drop-site and configure MS Power Automate to get it where it needs to go within your secure estate. 

  • API push or pull: Send user data to your API, or call our secure Govforms API endpoints to pull user data from us.

  • Send emails using GOV.UK Notify, our own out-of-the-box email provider or your own provider.  Easily map data from your service to emails and send attachments.

  • Retrieve both raw and post-processed analytics data using our API endpoints, in either CSV or JSON formats.

Apply logic and transforms, send dynamic content, debug and test 

  • Utilise Liquid templates to conditionally control next user action from any data consumed. Assign conditions to components and journeys steps in the service design.

  • Advanced data submission: Submit user entered data to a custom destination using third party APIs and liquid templates.

  • Mathematic calculations: perform sophisticated calculations across both user entered data and data fetched from data feeds or other actions.  Use the results in user content or downstream.

  • Use our one-click Test Mode in Prototype and QA environments to inspect all journey data and test Liquid templates used for dynamic user-facing content or back-end integration.

  • Integrate securely with any third party API to provide data to inform the next user action.  Branch on success/failure.

  • Test your API calls in our QA environment and manage QA and Production environment call-outs and actions independently.

  • Robotic process automation: Use third party tools to mimic back-office tasks to auto-enter data, extract data and move files.
