We’re happy to announce our TimeHero/Zapier integration is ready for public use!
We all work better when everything works together right? As of today you can now connect TimeHero to hundreds of other apps that you use to help automate your workflow. Pretty sweet right? There’s a pretty good chance you’ve heard of Zapier, the tool that helps you integrate pretty much all of the tools you use to make things work better. Well we’re pretty excited to be introducing our first iteration of our Zapier Integration!
If you aren’t familiar with Zapier, it’s a tool that helps you to connect web services (like TimeHero) with other web services (Slack, Salesforce, Facebook, Gmail, more…) to allow for thousands of possible integrations. Current count is now over 750+ applications in their library.
Here’s an example of some of the things you can do starting today.

Some of our favorite Zaps
There are hundreds of ways you can use Zapier and TimeHero so instead of sharing a huge list with you, we’re going to tell you a few of our favourite ways.
Create a new TimeHero task from a new lead in your CRM
We use Prosperworks as our CRM, so I’ll use that as our example. Whenever a new lead is added to Prosperworks a task to follow up is automatically created in TimeHero so we never miss a lead.
It isn’t a horrible idea to follow up with new subscribers on your mailing list so why not set up a zap for that? Whenever someone subscribes to your list a task will be added to TimeHero to follow up with them.
If you are part of a development team chances are you use JIRA for your support tickets. But how do you schedule those tickets? Good question right? JIRA Is great for tracking issues and creating tasks but if you connect JIRA to TimeHero, we’ll take those issues, turn them into tasks, give them a duration and schedule them for you.
How many times a day do you get an email that turns into a task, or five? Probably multiple times. We want to help you get those tasks out of your inbox and make sure none of them are falling through the cracks. Set up this zap and Zapier will automatically create tasks in TimeHero from labelled or starred emails in your Gmail. And because this is what we do — we’ll automatically schedule those tasks for you so you don’t have to think about them again until they show up in your schedule. BAM. Time. Saved.
Notify your team in Slack whenever a task is added to specific projects so everyone is on the same page all of the time. You can set the message to be the task name so that they know what was added and when.
