Update "Actual Time" field through Zapier

We use a different software to track time (Clockify) and are looking into integrate this into Asana through Zapier, so the team doesn’t have to change the way they track time instantaneously and we can do it in a timely manner while we migrate to Asana.

The problem is, the “Update Task” action in Zapier doesn’t seem to have the option to update the Actual Time field.

Is there a way to achieve this or perhaps a new update to the Zapier integration is necessary?

Thanks for the help.

Hi @Guil_Zavattaro,

It’s a new field on the task object so most likely Zapier doesn’t know about it and needs to be updated.

Note that the name of the field is actual_time_minutes.

If you can’t use the “Update Task” action, I think you should be able to use the “Webhooks by Zapier” action and update any task field including that one. Right @Bastien_Siebman?

Yes with a Webhooks action by Zapier you can make any call to the API.

Thanks @Phil_Seeman and @Bastien_Siebman .
Any tips or further documentation on how to set this integration with Zapier? I’m not sure how to post using Webhooks.

This thread has a few good screenshots of setting that up:

This thread also has a (lengthy) discussion of using Webhooks by Zapier:

There’s no good outright documentation on it that I’ve seen, unfortunately.
