Triggering from External Platform

Wrapping my head around triggers. Thinking of best way to trigger a GET request in n8n but from an external platform.

MY goal is to only trigger the GET when user submits a form in a website. Is it best just to add a CRON job (but running a cron job for few form submissions is it really good?) or can we use a sort of webhook to perform this? Thank you.

Hi Jorge,

We have a webhook trigger node for exactly this case. Here’s some more info in our docs:


Ahh awesome, this worked perfect :D, thank you very much. 2nd day with n8n, what an amazing tool so far.


Really glad to hear that! Welcome aboard :slight_smile:
