The possibilities of the digital work environment are great. Exchange, both on the interpersonal and information level, has never been so easy. Data can be exchanged between different programs to map processes in a more automated way.
At timeghost we use two web services that make it possible to create individual workflows to use programs even more effectively:
– Microsoft Power Automate
Zapier and Microsoft Power Automate briefly and simply explained
Zapier and Microsoft Power Automate are easy-to-use web services that allow you to automate actions between different web apps that you use in your daily work. Most importantly, you save a lot of time by creating them, because you can automate manual tasks that you do every day by creating “Zaps” or Power Automate connectors.
timeghost offers over 5000 Zapier connectors. Here you can also see the connection options that timeghost offers with Microsoft Power Automate. However, we also offer the option of creating individual workflows specifically for your company’s needs. Just send us a short mail to [email protected].
The 7 most popular workflows from timeghost users
Here are the 7 most popular programs and workflows that timeghost users use to work more effectively!
1. Microsoft Teams
For the Microsoft365 environment, Microsoft Teams is the central communication platform for agile teams. Teams provides its users with connection options to Microsoft programs, but also to applications that are not represented in the Microsoft cosmos.
Since timeghost was developed specifically for the Microsoft environment, we naturally offer several workflows to various Microsoft programs, which you can activate directly in timeghost.
timeghost Feed your Feed
The timeghost Feed your Feed – feature is like a suction, where you can determine which data from which programs is pulled into timeghost. You can select for different Microsoft programs whether data from the corresponding programs should be displayed in timeghost.

In the Microsoft Teams example, all calls with colleagues are displayed directly in timeghost and you can assign them to a project and task with just a few clicks. The calls are recorded with start and end time, so that exactly the time span of the call is automatically recorded.
2. Cisco Webex
Cisco Webex Meetings is a tool from Cisco that allows you to hold video conferences. Webex is comparable to other communication platforms like Microsoft Teams, Zoom or Slack. As with Microsoft Teams, you can also create workflows to timeghost in Webex.
