How do I automate Teamwork tasks with Zaps triggered by specific board column moves?


Hey everyone,

 

I’m trying to set up a Zap in Zapier to trigger when I move a task on my Teamwork board from “To do” to “In process”. There’s an option in Zapier for “Task moved”, but it doesn’t seem to work when I move tasks between these columns.

 

I think the “Task moved” trigger might only activate when a task is moved to a completely different list, not just between columns. I also tried the “Task updated” trigger, but that didn’t work either.

 

Has anyone else dealt with this or have any tips on how to get this working? Any help would be awesome!

 

Thanks,

Oscar

Hi @Oscar-C 

For the Teamwork Zap app available triggers/actions, I don’t see a trigger named “Task Moved”. (Please clarify with a screenshot)

Hi @Troy Tessalone 

Thank you very much for helping me look into this.

You’re correct - the event is named “Task Updated or Deleted in Teamwork”, and then within that event theres a trigger named “Task Moved”
 

Essentially what I’m trying to accomplish, is to setup a trigger that lets me trigger a Zap when I move a task on the Teamwork board. (From a column called “To do” to “In Process” for example)

What are the other options for “Trigger On”? (screenshots)

 

@Troy Tessalone 

The other options for “Trigger On” are:

“Task Completed”, “Task Deleted”, “Task Moved”, “Task Reminder”, Task Reopened”, “Task Tagged”, “Task Tagged”, “Task Untagged”, “Task Updated”.

I hoped that the trigger “Task Updated” would trigger from moving a task to a new column, but it doesn’t.

Perhaps I need to use a completely different trigger to achieve what I’m trying to do.
