Did you ever need one more Event Field to make your scheduling perfect?
The best thing about using custom fields in the Teamup Zapier integration is that you don’t need to set up anything. Simply switch to Teamup Zapier integration v1.3.0. Your custom fields will show up inside Zapier.
Why custom fields?
Custom Fields are a vital spot for fine-tuning your scheduling preferences. Although we do provide crucial built-in event fields such as Who, Location, or Description, sometimes you want your events to do more. With custom fields, you can add any event field you need, such as Phone number or Project Leader.
Custom field types
You can choose from 4 different types of custom fields:
- Single-line text: Usually intended to input a word or sentence.
- Number: Field which accepts only numerical data.
- Choices (single): List of options from which you select one value.
- Choices (multi): List of options from which you can select multiple values.
Assigning the proper type to your custom field will make creating events much more efficient and intuitive.
For example, labels and categories that are used repeatedly work best with the multi-choices type. Unique numeric variables such as project ID or work order number function best with the Number field. For fields which should have only one “answer,” such as status or priority level, use the single-choice type. And for field entries that differ often, such as special requests or keyword tags, the single-line text type is best.
How to get most from custom fields
There are many ways to customize custom fields to fit your scheduling style. People often add the most important information to custom fields, so it does not get lost. You can always find custom field values quickly: they can be easily filtered inside your calendar or sorted in our unique Table View in their own column. Now, in the Teamup Zapier Integration, you can even use the custom field values as variables for additional Zap Steps:
Did you miss the previous updates?
Teamup Zapier integration is more efficient than ever before. Although the custom fields are a highlight of the latest version, we’ve already delivered some of the most desired features:
Markdown language – v1.2.0
In Teamup Zapier integration 1.2.0 we added support for markdown language in the Description field directly inside the Zapier editor. With this improvement you can type markdown directly in Zapier and it will be translated to a proper HTML syntax inside your Teamup Calendar.
E.g.: If you type # Your heading text inside the Zapier integration, this will get translated to <h1>Your heading text</h1> in your Teamup Calendar. This results in the proper description formatting which you already know from the Teamup Event Editor.
Remote ID support – v1.1.0
Connecting various apps together inside Zapier can sometimes be difficult. While it’s easy to set up simple Zaps, there are times when you need more complicated solutions–such as updating a Teamup Event when something in a different app changes. Remote IDs are the feature which you may be looking for. They allow you to connect a unique ID of an item from a different app directly to your Teamup Event.
Example: If you use Google Sheets, each row has a unique ID. You may want to assign the ID directly to an event as a Remote ID, so each time you update the Google Sheets row the specific event gets automatically updated via Zapier as well. There is no need to separately store the Event ID in Google Sheets. Everything is connected in the background via the smart Remote ID system.
