About the integration
Zapier is a great tool to connect awork with a lot different tools, even without deep programming knowledge.
Zapier works in two directions: You can get information out of awork and post it into another tool or you can take information of a tool and create an entity within awork We offer the following options
Get information out of awork (Trigger)
- New task created
- New time tracked
- Tracked time updated
Create awork entities (Action)
- Create a new project
- Create a new project-task
How to set it up
To create your first Zap (yes, it's called that way) navigate to "Settings" / "Integrations" and click of the Zapier button (or choose to add a predefined snap by us).
You will be forwarded to the Zapier homepage. Here you can choose the app that you want to connect with awork (e.g. Slack).
Now you have the option to choose a commonly used connection or select a trigger and action in either app.
Zapier will show you a short summary of your selections.
Zapier will lead you through some steps where you need to confirm the selected settings. Our example should create a awork task when a slack message gets starred.
So after a few screens you need to select which slack field will be the name of the awork task (1), select the awork project (2), Type of Work (3) and Task Stastus (4).
ATTENTION: The options you need to set depend on the app and trigger you selected.
Now Zapier will ask you to run a test zap (the data of this test will show up in your awork workspace). Afterwards you are done, save you zap and set the connection to active.
Zapier Integration with Webhooks
If you want to get information from awork that is not in our standard zapier integration, you can use webhooks.
Go to zapier.com and select "Webhooks" as a trigger.
Select the option "Catch Hook".
Copy the url on the next screen into an awork webhook. More information about how to do that here.
Now you need to add a filter where you can decide details on the information that should trigger the zap, e.g. the task status. Now just continue as described above.
