Gleam offers a comprehensive list of Actions that you can use in your campaigns, these include deeper integrations with other apps, businesses or services via APIs to verify information or extend functionality.
There will be cases when we don't currently support something specific you'd like to do, or don't currently integrate with a service you'd like to create an Action for.
This FAQ outlines the options available when this scenario arises:
The first thing worth doing is having a quick look at the Actions we support for the specific integration you require.
If what you're trying to achieve involves Facebook then review our Facebook Actions documentation first to see what can be configured.
You may wish to create an Action that isn't support or has been deprecated - for example Follow on Instagram.
Gleam is required to abide by the Terms of Service of the APIs that we use, in some cases when these change Actions become unavailable due to no longer being supported or permitted.
Gleam isn't responsible nor endorses doing this as you put your social accounts at risk on that platform.
Unfortunately, it is against Facebook's policy to incentivise Instagram Follows. Find out how else you can grow your Instagram account on the Gleam platform.

If you need further control you can create a Custom Action.
Custom Actions allow you to create many types of actions that doesn't exist natively within the Gleam interface. This option opens up millions of potential combinations for your creative mind.
Custom Actions also offer a few options to validate if the user has completed your Action.
Custom Action Tracking allows you to use a pixel to validate the completion of the Action. Please note that you can't use this for properties that you can't implement the Pixel on, so for example Instagram.
We've been working on integrating with Zapier to make it easier for you to build Actions that aren't natively supported by us.
The current Triggers that are available are:
You can also use our contact form to get in touch with us to suggest an integration!
We keep an internal record of the number of users asking for specific integrations and use this to define our roadmap, so don't be disappointed if we can't build your integration right away.
Our API currently only supports GET requests on Gleam endpoints, but this is something we're hoping to add in future releases.
