Zapier

Zapier gives you the power to connect Husky with more than 1000 other web apps, for synchronisation of data or creating multi app workflows.

Zapier has a free version for 100 actions per month. Above that, it starts at $ 20/month.

At the moment the Zapier integration is still 'per invite'. You can get it here, or request an invitation via Support (mail or chat). We are happy to help you realize this integration.

How does it work?

Zapier is structured around 'triggers' and 'actions'. If something happens in one app, something has to happen in another app. (By the way, that could be the same app.)

In our example we are going to add every new Husky moment in a channel (in this case a blog post) to a Google calendar as an appointment on a full day. 

Authentication

Soon you'll connect Husky to Zapier. You only have to do this once. To do so, log in to Husky and choose your profile settings in the top right corner. An authentication code (API key) has been added at the bottom. You can already copy it.

Account in Zapier

Go to Zapier and create an account, if you don't have one yet.

At the top right you will see the orange button 'Create a new Zap'. Then you have to set the trigger and the action. By the way, one trigger can result in multiple actions. And you can also edit your trigger before an action has to follow. This way you can set filters, or change the formatting, or set a delay so that the action will happen a few days later.

1. Trigger

Use the search function to find your Trigger app. Because Husky can only be used via invitation, you have to request it first (see above).

Then you have to choose a trigger. For the time being the API offers the possibility to set this kind of triggers:

  • new notification
  • new channel
  • new project
  • new task
  • new moment

In our example, we choose a new moment.

Then you have to make the connection with Husky. To do so, use the API key you just copied from your profile settings. Your connection is linked to your personal account at Husky. If you have limited rights so you can't see some plans or projects in your company account, then logically you won't be able to reach them via the API.

You have chosen the trigger app and connected the account. Now you have to indicate which information should be considered as a trigger. You choose your account, your plan, your project and your channel. All these selections are optional. So you can also indicate that the trigger should happen at any moment that is created.

After that the settings for the trigger will be tested and test data will be available for the further setting of the Zap.

2. Action

Now we're going to set up the action. We want every new Husky-moment in a certain channel to have a day appointment in the Google calendar.

At Template you choose which information should be shown where in Husky. Once you have filled in everything correctly, you can test it. Zapier provides the necessary checks.

That's it. Give your Zap another name and activate it. Your new blog post in your Husky calendar will automatically be shown in your Google calendar from now on.
