i use IFTTT to export all my trips to a Google spreadsheet automatically. I'd love it if there was an IFTTT option to add the business tag to my spreadsheet as well.

Thanks for the idea, J.C. I'll pass this along! Currently, tagging info isn't an API endpoint, but this is something we could add in the future. Once it's an endpoint, it will then need to be added as a recipe ingredient on IFTTT.

Did you know that the web dashboard now allows you to view and export tagged business trips into a .CSV file? Here's a link to the related FAQ.

...but in the web dashboard you still can't tag a trip as business? :(

True. We haven't been able to do any updates to the primary web dashboard in a long time. :(

I guess it looks like it's time to investigate https://dash.by/

It would definitely be nice to integrate tagging into the Automatic API, both as a value that can be written to a spreadsheet, and ideally as a trigger event.   It would be nice to be able to log business trips to a Google Sheet whenever I tag them.

Thanks for pointing out the CSV export!

+1 adding tags to the API. It would be great for logging business trips to a Google Spreadsheet!

Thanks for chiming in :)

If we revisit our IFTTT recipe, this is something we will revisit.

Agreed. This would be very useful. Since one of the main reasons I got an Automatic was to automate tracking business mileage, having a single spreadsheet that can be sorted by business/non-business would be awesome. It makes much more sense than having two spreadsheets, one with all trips and one with business trips. That's just silly.

Thanks for chiming in, Greg.

While we don't have a current automation for this through IFTTT, you can export all your business tagged trips through the Automatic Web Dashboard.
