Webhooks: Messages

Webhook notifications for new messages in the Guest Inbox.

Guesty's Open API allows you to send various communications-related webhook notifications to your application's notification URL(s).

What Notifications Can I Receive?

Message notifications are sent by Guesty when there are events such as:

  • A new message is received from your Guests or Owners.
  • A new message has been sent within an existing conversation thread to your Guests or Owners.

📘

Identifying the Message Type

You can differentiate between guest and owner messages by referring to the value in the conversationWith field that is included in each webhook payload.

Why Create Message Webhooks?

To receive external notifications when new messages are sent and received, allowing you to manage guest and owner communications, even when you aren't logged into your Guesty dashboard.

Message Received Notification

This webhook notification is sent whenever a new message is received to your Guests Inbox or Owners Inbox. Learn how to create this webhook here.
