If you use Google Tasks to help you manage your schedule, it is a good idea to transfer tasks from LiveChat to remember about a call or an email that your customer has requested - this all can be done with the use of Google Tasks integration.
In this tutorial you’ll find instructions on how to create a Zap adding a Task from chat to Google Tasks account.
Creating the LiveChat - Google Tasks Integration
Creating this Zap consists of three main parts:
- Setting up the trigger
- choosing an event that will start data passing
- Configuring the action
- setting up what will happen in the target app
- Launching the Zap
- turning the integration on
Setting up the trigger
First, set up a rule on which the information will be passed from LiveChat.
- Log in to Zapier and click on Make a Zap in the upper menu.
- Choose LiveChat as the Trigger App.
- Select Chat changed as the Trigger.
- Click on Save + Continue to proceed.
- Click on Connect a New Account and then provide your LiveChat login email and the API key. Next, click on the Yes, confirm to accept.

- Select Fetch & Continue to test this step and make sure it is working properly.
Adding a filter
The second step is adding a filter that will only pass the chats with a ‘task’ tag further.
- Go to the filter section in Zapier and choose the tag of the chats that you want to pass to Google Tasks.

Launching the Zap
If all tests went green, it is time to enable your new Zap.
