Tutorial: Automate Task Creation with Make and Datalinky

Step 1: Create a Simple Web Form

Create an HTML form to collect task information (title and description) and POST this data to a Datalinky endpoint.

Step 2: Set Up Datalinky Endpoint

  1. Log in to Datalinky and create a new endpoint.
  2. Copy the endpoint URL provided by Datalinky.
  3. **Replace https://your-datalinky-endpoint in the form’s action attribute with the actual Datalinky endpoint URL.

Step 3: Connect Datalinky to Make

  1. Log in to Make and click on “Create a new scenario”.
  2. Select Webhooks as the trigger app.
  3. Choose “Custom Webhook” and click “Add” to create a new webhook.
  4. Copy the webhook URL provided by Make.
  5. Go back to Datalinky, edit your endpoint, and add the Make webhook URL as the destination URL.

Step 4: Create a Scenario to Add Tasks in Trello or Asana

  1. In Make, after setting up the webhook trigger, click “Continue”.
  2. Test the trigger to ensure Make receives data from Datalinky.
  3. Add an action step and choose either Trello or Asana as the app.
  4. Select “Create Card” (for Trello) or “Create Task” (for Asana) as the action event and click “Continue”.
  5. Connect your Trello or Asana account and select the board/list (for Trello) or project (for Asana) where you want to add the tasks.
  6. Map the form fields (title, description) to the corresponding fields in Trello or Asana.
  7. Test the action to ensure the data is added correctly.
  8. Activate the scenario.

Step 5: Test the Integration

  1. Open your web form and submit a test task.
  2. Check your Trello board or Asana project to confirm that the new task appears correctly.


You’ve successfully created a simple web form to collect task information and automated the process of adding these tasks to Trello or Asana using Datalinky and Make. This setup saves time and reduces errors by automating repetitive task entry.
