Manage integrations in the Pingen App
Pingen differentiates between "Integrations" and "Third-party apps".
Integrations allow you to connect Pingen to online tools and software solutions. These integrations facilitate the flexible transfer of documents and enable automated letter-sending. For example, PDFs can be uploaded via Dropbox and then sent automatically via Pingen.
Furthermore, various software solutions also offer integrations and add-ons (so-called "Third-party apps") for Pingen, which can be managed under "External accesses". For more information, see the article "Manage external access and third-party apps in the Pingen App".

Manage integrations via the Pingen App
The menu item "Organisation Administration" "Integrations" provides an overview of all existing integrations for the respective Organisation.
Deactivate an integration
For deactivated integrations, data transfer is paused, which means that any documents sent to the integrated service will no longer be processed by Pingen. You can deactivate an integration by clicking on the "Pause" icon and confirming in the next window.
To reactivate the integration, click on the "Play" icon. Afterwards, all documents available via the respective integration will be processed by Pingen again.
Edit delivery settings
The "Pencil" icon can be used to edit the delivery settings of an integration:
Envelope window: To ensure the visibility of the recipient's address, the envelope window must be on the correct side of the envelope. Please specify whether the recipient’s address is on the left or right side in the document.
Send automatically: If “Send automatically” is enabled, the letters are sent directly after they’re transmitted to Pingen. If this feature is disabled, the letters are only transferred to Pingen and can be sent manually via the Pingen App.
Delivery Product: The delivery product option controls whether letters are sent as quickly as possible, as cheaply as possible, or in bulk. If you select the "Fast" option, the fastest available delivery option for the respective recipient country is used. If you select the "Cheap" option, letters are sent using the cheapest available shipping option.
If you select the "Bulk" shipping option, letters are sent at even cheaper shipping prices but have a longer delivery time. If you select bulk mailing but this mailing option is not available for the recipient country, the letters will automatically be sent using the "Cheap" mailing option.
Page Handling: The page handling option determines whether your letters will be printed on one side (simplex) or on both sides (duplex).
Color Mode The color mode specifies whether the letters are printed in greyscale or in color.
Use the "Save changes" button to save the changes you make to the delivery settings.
Integrations can be removed to the "Trash bin" icon. Afterwards, the connection between the integration and Pingen will no longer exist.
If an integration receives the "Synchronisation failed" message, Pingen was unable to connect to the integration. In this case, Pingen is currently unable to process files through this integration. Pingen will automatically attempt to re-establish synchronisation. If the problem persists, remove the integration and try re-connecting it to Pingen.
