Channel hooks

Channel hooks are small programs that Awasu runs to perform various actions as each channel is processed. For example, hooks can be used to send out emails when new items arrive or store them in a database if they meet certain requirements.

You can attach one or more hooks to a channel from the Hooks page in the channel's Properties dialog:

To attach a hook to a channel, click on the small square icon in the top right-hand corner and browse to the appropriate .hook file (they will usually be stored in the ChannelHooks sub-directory).

Any number of hooks can be attached to a channel. The context menu for the My Channels window will contain special commands for each hook that has been attached to a channel e.g. monitor windows can be opened or closed from this menu. These commands are also available from the Edit main menu.
