Tips for integrating ScheduleOnce with time tracking apps

NoteWhen integrating with time tracking apps, it's best to use one of our specific triggers.

This article includes tips for integrating ScheduleOnce with time tracking apps using Zapier as an integration platform.

Supported use cases

Using ScheduleOnce with Zapier provides support the following time tracking use cases:

  1. When a booking is made in ScheduleOnce, 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.

  2. When a booking is made in ScheduleOnce, a new task can be created in the time tracking app.

Field mapping tips

Mapping ScheduleOnce 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). ScheduleOnce 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 ScheduleOnce 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 ScheduleOnce fields to the time entry description field. To make this easy, ScheduleOnce 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 ScheduleOnce fields required. Learn more about ScheduleOnce composite fields
