This article includes tips for integrating OnceHub with time tracking apps using Zapier as an integration platform.
Supported use cases
Using OnceHub with Zapier provides support the following time tracking use cases:
When a booking is made in OnceHub, a new time entry can be created in the time tracking app. Please note that some time tracking apps provide this functionality only to premium customers.
When a booking is made in OnceHub, a new task can be created in the time tracking app.
Field mapping tips
Mapping OnceHub fields to time tracking fields is straightforward. The following fields may deserve more attention:
Duration. In some time tracking apps, duration is specified in minutes. In other apps, duration is specified in seconds (e.g. Toggl). OnceHub supports both options. You can specify either Booking - Duration in minutes or Booking - Duration in seconds to work with the units your time tracking app supports.
Description. When there is no direct match between a OnceHub booking field and a time tracking field, you may be able to map the field to a ‘custom field’. If custom fields are not supported by your time tracking app or by its Zapier integration, you can map multiple OnceHub fields to the time entry description field. To make this easy, OnceHub has created two composite fields: Booking summary (long) and Booking summary (short). You can simply map these fields to the time entry description and add any additional OnceHub fields required. Learn more about OnceHub composite fields
