Pastel allows you to easily collect client feedback on websites you're building. But to make the most of that feedback, you need to be able to easily act on it. Exporting Pastel comments to a custom webhook is an easy way to integrate Pastel into your custom workflow.

To start getting your custom webhook set up, head on over to any canvas and click the Export button in the bottom right. (If you don't have a canvas, you can get set up in under a minute over at usepastel.com)

Then select custom webhook from the available options and follow the prompts.

You'll be prompted to enter the URL of your webhook endpoint that Pastel will POST to.

Once you've saved your webhook URL, you can begin exporting. You can select all comments, filter by active or resolved, or just select the comments you'd like to export one by one.

Once you click export,  Pastel will make a JSON-encoded POST request to the endpoint URL you entered previously, with data for all the comments you'd like to export. Pastel expects that a successful response should have the 200 OK HTTP status code, and will return an error if it receives any other status code. Here's a sample request:
