Make.com is a fantastic tool for integrating various software applications seamlessly. Without writing a single line of code, you can create powerful apps.
With the new Ubiqod App for Make.com, connecting your Skiply IoT devices or QR codes to any of the thousands of applications available on Make.com has never been easier.
To demonstrate, we will establish a connector between Ubiqod and Asana, an incredibly efficient cloud-based project management tool.
In order to follow this tutorial, you must:
Have a Make.com account
Create a free Asana account
Have a Ubiqod account
If you are not familiar with Make.com, you can follow this video course for beginners.
What we want to achieve
For demonstration purposes, we will create a simple scenario in which a user presses a connected button or scans a QR code to automatically create a task in Asana.
Implement the Make.com scenario
Add a Ubiqod Trigger
Create a new Make.com scenario and click on the big + button. Search for Ubiqod, select “Ubiqod by Skiply”, and add a trigger “Receive Data From Trackers”:
Click the “Add” button in front of the Webhook selection box. Click the “Add” button to create a connection to Ubiqod. You should see this screen:
You can fin your Ubiqod Account’s API Key in the Account section of your Ubiqod interface:
Unhide the existing key or create a new one and copy/paste it to Make.com. Press Save.
Add your new webhook.
Your scenario can now receive data from Ubiqod. You can save it before going ahead.
Create a task in Asana from Ubiqod data
Each time we receive data from a Ubiqod tracker, we will create a task named after the tracker’s input label (for example, “Clean the room”, “Water leakage”…).
Add the Asana action “Create a Task or a Subtask”. Configure it as follow:
Of course, you must choose the Workspace ID that you created in Asana, and select the associated project.
Fill the task Nam with the Data: Input Label field coming from the Ubiqod trigger.
Our scenario is ready to use and should look like this:
Save and activate your scenario.
You can test this with the mock IoT button available upon creating a Ubiqod account (use the right arrow in the tracker list to access the simulator) or with a QR code tracker. In either case, you will need to create an interface to assign labels to IoT buttons or to create buttons for QR codes.
Once you’re set up, simply associate your tracker with the Make.com dispatch, which was created for you by the Make.com App for Ubiqod, and start sending data.
To go further
You can add a lot of value to your scenario by:
Adding a due date to the task
Adding the site information
Associate people to an action
Use the magnetic badge to mark the task as completed
Other actions that you can use with the Make.com connector
The Make.com App offers much more than a webhook to receive data from Ubiqod. You can also create and manage trackers, sites, pin codes and badge lists without writting a single line of code.
