What I’d like to achieve:
A comment in Figma that contains the phrase #task is posted → ClickUp creates a task
Sounds simple and I managed to do that. The problem is… every 15 minutes ClickUp creates over and over again the same tasks.
How do I make ClickUp to check if the task already exists? So it won’t create it again.
I have found a similar issue here:
I tried to implement this but it didn’t work. It doesn’t create any tasks at all.
This is how my scenario look like:
Do you have any ideas how to solve this?
to me it looks like you are asking Figma every 15min “please give me a list of all comments”. As the comment with #task is included, it clearly creates a new ClickUp Task every time
So there are a few quick ways of solving this (most certainly more … :D):
- Ask Figma to only send you new comments (I don’t see a Module for this).
- When you ask Figma for a list of comments, only let comments pass through that were created within the last 15min. (Similar to your filter with “contains #task”)
- I guess Figma returns a Comment-ID or something like that? You might save this ID into your ClickUp task and then only create ClickUp-tasks for comments where the ID isn’t contained in any of the ClickUp-tasks.
I hope this helps you?
I’ve chosen the second option as it seemed to be the easiest for me to implement and everything works as intended!
