Munich, 16th March 2016—MeisterTask today announced its integration with Zapier, the popular webapp-automation service which enables non-developers to connect apps via simple workflow automations called ‘Zaps’. Through the integration, MeisterTask users can now connect their project boards with more than 500 other web applications.
“The Zapier integration opens a whole new world of possibilities for our users,” said MeisterLabs Managing Director, Till Vollmer. “A lot of our previous integrations were largely geared towards developers so we’re extremely pleased that now also those users without a technical background will be able to effortlessly connect MeisterTask with the tools they use on a daily basis.”
MeisterTask can be set up to trigger actions in other apps as well as being used to perform actions itself. Supported triggers include task and project creation, among others, and are ideally suited for connections with time tracking, notification and calendar applications. Using “Schedule for Zapier” users are also able to set up recurring tasks with customized intervals.
When MeisterTask is set up as an action, Zapier can create new tasks in MeisterTask based on events that occur in other applications. Users can thus automatically create tasks from emails, brand mentions, support tickets, errors, orders, spreadsheet rows, or Dropbox files, to name just a few examples. Zapier’s ability to create multi-step Zaps and add filters to automations amplifies the range and depth of options further, allowing users to create tasks for specific types and subsets of these events.
“We are super excited to announce Zapier’s integration with MeisterTask because it means that users can connect MeisterTask to 750+ other apps,” said Wade Foster, co-founder and CEO at Zapier. “These connections allow MeisterTask users to create entirely automated workflows and eliminate repetitive manual work, so they can focus their energy on getting their tasks done.”
MeisterTask aims to combine the most beautiful and simple user interface with powerful productivity features. Its integration with Zapier follows a line of other partnerships with tools such as Slack, GitHub, Bitbucket and most recently Bugsnag. Various task automation options are also available directly within MeisterTask in the form of bulk and section actions, and more are being added regularly.
