How to remove Slack "Later" messages after creating Google Tasks with Zapier?

I am using the zap which does
when I mark slack message for “Later”, create a gTask from it

 

However this results in messages beeing kept in slack “Later” forever (or until I manually remove them). And I cannot do it right away until I am not sure zap run

 

So I’d like to add another step which would run after gTask is created and would do:

Remove the message from “Later” in slack (or unsave it, or however slack calls it)

 

But I am unable to find a proper action. Is there any?
 

Alternativelly this API might work (I did not have time to test it yet) https://api.slack.com/methods/stars.remove

But first I wanted to check whether someone has not tried it already

Hi @Luukkkaas 

That would likely involve using the Slack API.

  • API Request
  • Custom Action (with the help of AI)
