Typeform turns average forms & surveys into a powerful brand communication tool for your business. Create forms, surveys, quizzes (and so much more) to grow your audience, improve just about anything, and validate (or invalidate) your best ideas.

Authenticating

Typeform uses OAuth, a developer-friendly delegated access protocol. Quolum has already connected the necessary wires with Typeform. Using a sequence of click-throughs, your organization's administrator allows Quolum to make API calls to Typeform without getting access to passwords.

Step 1: Initiate a connection to Typeform

Click the Connect button from the Connections card. If you are not an admin, you can invite your organization's Typeform admin to make a connection to your Typeform organization account. When you click on the Connect button, the web browser will navigate to the Typeform login page.

Step 2: Log in to Typeform

Log in to Typeform using your organization's credentials. The exact login mechanism may depend on your Typeform plan, and the sign-in mechanism used. You may have corporate SSO such as Azure AD, GSuite, or Okta along with multi-factor authentication. Once you have successfully logged-in, Typeform is going to ask you to grant access to Quolum.

Typeform Authentication

Step 3: Provide consent to Quolum

The next screen after login into Typeform is the consent screen. On this screen, Typeform confirms whether you authorize Quolum to access your organization's data.

Step 4: Back to Quolum

Once you have granted access to Quolum on Typeform's website, Typeform is going to send you back to Quolum's page in Step 1, where you started. The Connect button on the Connections card would now say Reconnect. Reconnect is used to reauthenticate under circumstances where the access has expired.

Under the hood

Using the OAuth protocol, Quolum now has delegated access to your Typeform Workspace. The Quolum server, running on Amazon AWS VPC, will be able to make API calls and retrieve feature-level utilization. Later, this data is crunched and available for visualization on the Quolum dashboard.
