    This is very nice, a great addition to Yanado. Question: is there a way to create a task in Yanado from a Slack message from someone else?

    • You could copy paste that message into Yanado command, but there’s a better way. You can use Zapier integration where you can setup Zap that will create a Yanado task from the starred message in Slack. Works like a charm for me!

        Thanks for the reply Ivan, that’s interesting as I checked Zapier and didn’t see Yanado as a supported app. I used to have this exact Zap for Todoist, so I know how to set up Zaps. But could I ask how you’re connecting to Yanado via Zapier? Much obliged.

        • We are currently in the review process for making Yanado public on Zapier. Meanwhile you can join our private beta:

            Ah, that’s nice. However, Zapier is telling me I need a Yanado API key, which isn’t showing up in Yanado. I’ll message you directly from within Yanado to ask about this. Thank you!

          • Just in case, here’s the video on how to get Yanado API key:

            Terrific, I was missing the Create step. Zap created, starred Slack messages now going to Yanado! Thank you!
