  1. Select this integration
  2. Configure the New Submission trigger
    1. Connect your Typeform account
    2. Select a Form
  3. Configure the Verify Email Address action
    1. Connect your Verifalia account
    2. Configure Email address
    3. Optional- Select a Quality Level
    4. Optional- Configure Data Retention Period
  4. Deploy the workflow
  5. Send a test event to validate your setup
  6. Turn on the trigger

Details

This integration uses pre-built, source-available components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Typeform Overview

With the Typeform API, you can easily create beautiful, interactive forms that
allow people to share their information with you in an engaging way. Here are
some examples of what you can build with the Typeform API:

  • A contact form for your website that allows people to easily get in touch
    with you
  • An order form for your product or service that allows people to place orders
    easily and securely
  • A survey form that allows you to collect data and feedback from people
  • A registration form for your event or conference that allows people to sign
    up easily and securely

Trigger Authentication

Typeform uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Typeform account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Typeform and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Typeform API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

Description:Verify an email address and check if it is properly formatted, really exists and can accept mails, flagging spam traps, disposable emails and much more. [See the docs](https://verifalia.com/developers#email-validations-creating) for more information

Verifalia Overview

The Verifalia API is a powerful and secure suite of tools designed to validate
& clean data and email addresses. It can be used to help reduce fraud, improve
data quality, and boost marketing campaigns.

Verifalia's API can be used to build the following:

  • Email Validation: Validate a list of email addresses and check for accuracy,
    validity, and deliverability.
  • Email Address Hygiene & Cleaning: Automatically clean a list of email
    addresses to remove duplicates, typos, and invalid addresses.
  • Email Address List Verification: Check a list of email addresses and verify
    them against a specific domain.
  • Email Spam Score & Analysis: Analyze a list of emails and determine the
    associated spam level.
  • Phone Number Validation: Automatically validate a list of phone numbers and
    check for accuracy and improper formatting.
  • Bulk Email Sending: Execute a bulk email campaign and track email delivery
    rate in real-time.
  • Private DNS Check & Domain Name Verification: Check a domain's reliability
    and identity, as well as DNS records and MX records.
  • Domain Catch-all Check & Delivery Confirmation: Determine if a domain is
    flagged as a catch-all and confirm if emails sent to that domain will be
    received by the intended recipient.
