Zapier allows you to integrate TrackingTime with the other business apps you rely on every day. Learn how to build custom automations and extend the power of TrackingTime!
What is Zapier?
Zapier is a web automation app that allows you to build so-called "Zaps" to automate parts of your business or life. A Zap is a connection between two apps, made of a trigger and an action. Whenever the trigger event happens, Zapier will automatically make the action event happen for you!
If I create a new project in Basecamp, add the project in TrackingTime.
If an employee closes a task in TrackingTime, send me an email.
