In case you missed it, Zapier is a platform that lets you connect your favorite web apps to create automated workflows between them without any programming skills. It’s a great way to connect MeisterTask with calendars, time tracking tools, productivity apps, and even social media networks.
When setting up such an automation (called ‘Zap‘), MeisterTask can be used both as a trigger (e.g. Whenever a new task is created in MeisterTask, an action in another app is performed) or an action (e.g. Whenever a particular action is performed in an app you use, a new task is created in MeisterTask).
A New Trigger for MeisterTask
So far the triggers available in MeisterTask all focused on the creation of something new – a new project being set up, a new task being created, a new person being added to a project, and so forth. Our latest update however adds a new trigger that’s all about wrapping things up: Task Completion.
There are a number of ways this new trigger can help you be more productive, for instance, you can use it to automatically inform team members about completed tasks by sending a message to the chat app you’re using; managers may find it useful to collect a list of all completed tasks from their team in a Google Sheet.
Please note: This trigger is activated by any task completed in any of your active projects, by any team member. More specific triggers (such as tasks completed in a certain project or by a certain team member) will follow!
