Wix CRM events are fired on your site's backend when certain events occur related to site contacts. You can write event handlers that react to these events. Event handler functions receive data that corresponds to the event that fired. Use event handlers to create custom responses to contact events.

To add a CRM event handler, add an events.js file to the Backend section of your site if one does not already exist. All event handler functions for your site are defined in this file.

Event handler functions are defined using the following pattern:

export function <wixAppName>_<eventName>(event) { }
javascript | Copy Code

For example, an event handler that handles site visitor form submittal looks like this:

export function wixCrm_onFormSubmit(event) { }
javascript | Copy Code

Note that backend events don't work when previewing your site.
