About Zapier

Zapier gives you the power to integrate RescueTime with hundreds of other apps to automate your work.

Start With a Popular Zap

I log my time use on my iPad (which does not have a RescueTime app), which shows up on Google Calendar. If this zap works, it can be used to get those otherwise untracked times (and my other Google Calendar events that I am not on my computer) to show up in Rescuetime.

It's important for me to have a record of the meetings on my calendar when I go back to review how I've been spending my time. This zap lets me log meetings as daily highlights in RescueTime so I have all my time information in a single place.

When I drag a Trello card to the Done column, log a Daily Highlight in RescueTime Be sure to set custom filters to target the "Done" column! ('Data List Name' not equal 'Done' / 'Data List After Name' exactly matches 'Done')

Send a message to a HipChat room when a RescueTime Alert is triggered

Mark the timestamp that a RescueTime alert was triggered on a Google Calendar

Tweet a self-deprecating message automatically when a new RescueTime alert is triggered

Once I post a new highlight in RescueTime, automatically send it (via Gmail) to iDoneThis to log a new done.

Send a push notfication to my phone whenever a RescueTime alert is sent.

Create a Trello card when I log more than 1 hour of uncategorized time in RescueTime so I don't forget to go back and review that time. (Be sure to set a custom filter for "Uncategorized Activities - Hour" > 1.0)

When a new RescueTime daily summary becomes available, send myself a report as an email.

Make Your Own Zap with Triggers + Actions

What are Triggers, Searches & Actions?

Triggers, searches and actions are simply events you can use to build an integration, or "Zap". They can be things like a "new email", "find lead" or a "new contact". A Zap combines triggers, searches and actions — whenever the trigger event occurs, Zapier automatically completes all searches or actions for you!
