I'm getting a Webhook connection error

Common fixes: Change anything.com to https://www.anything.com.
I'm getting an Error decoding JSON message
Error decoding JSON for variable 'decdata.foobar'
This occurs when you have used the route template variable
Common fixes: Double check that the message data payload is properly formatted with valid JSON. Common formatting issues are uses of single quotes and the inclusion of numbers. If in doubt, use a JSON validator.
I am getting a Socket error: timed out message. What does this mean?
