About the integration
Zapier is a great tool to connect you Q. with a lot different tools, even without deep programming knowledge.
Zapier works in two directions: You can get information out of you Q. and post it into another tool or you can take information of a tool and create an entity within your Q. We offer the following options
Get information out of Q. (Trigger)
- New task created
- New time tracked
- Tracked time updated
Create Q. entities (Action)
- Create a new project
- Create a new project-task
How to set it up
Choose the trigger app (Q. or any other app that offers Zapier integration). Now select your trigger (some options may be hidden behind the "show less common options" button) and click on "Save + Continue".
Now simply add you Q. account (or other tools account). Make sure to connect Zapier with the right Q. team and click on "Continue".
We recommend you test whether the integrations works. Please make sure you have some recently created data (e.g. tasks) in Q., so you can use it for your tests. If you have appropriate test data in, click of "Fetch & Continue".
Now you need to select the tools you want to create the action for. We will chose slack for this example. Depending on the tool you choose there will be different triggers offered to you. Select one and click on "Continue".
Connect with the account (in this example Slack) and click on "Continue".
Zapier asks you to set up the details of your integration in the next window. In this example we will post all newly created Q. tasks to the slack channel "zapiertest". In the "Message text" window you create the message that will be displayed in Slack. Depending on the tool of your choice there will be different options. Then click Continue, send a test Zap in the next window and click on "Send Test To Slack" and select "Finish" if the test was successful.
Now you can name your Zap, select a folder to organize them, turn them on and enjoy your Q. Zapier integration.
