Run embedded Kantu macros

Embedded Kantu macros are a great way to distribute macros to users, for example to help them with certain tasks on your website. This website contains three embedded macros. You can use your browser's "View page source" function to inspect this website - and you will see the embedded macros. The macro code is exactly the same as you can find on the "Source code tab" of Kantu.

To run these macros, you first have to allow it. (If you don't allow to run embedded macros, Kantu will show a dialog with an error message).

^This macro fills out a Google Docs Survey form.

^This is the same macro as the first one, but now it opens in a new tab - and it contains different data. Also, the Javascript for this call contains the closeKantu: false flag, so Kantu stays open after the macro run is completed.

^This macro goes to 7zip.org and downloads the software. (7zip is not related to a9t9.com in any way).

Allow embedded macros to run

In order to run macros that are embedded in a website you have to first allow it (step 1 in the screenshot below). The default setting is OFF (do not run embedded macros). Once you allow such macros in general, you will see a dialog box asking for permission to run such macros. If you want to avoid this warning dialog for certain websites (for example your own internal website), then you can add this website to the website whitelist (step 2 in the screenshot below):

"Steal" the Javascript snippets directly from this page

You can copy and reuse the Javascript that sends the Kantu macro from the page to Kantu. The code is directly on this page. In the browser, right-click and select "View page source" to view it.

Embedded macros javascript code
The only part that needs to be changed is the macro JSON code. You can also give each macro a different name. Macros with the same name get simply overwritten, so Kantu runs always the latest version that is on the page.
