We do not currently support Google Maps for Work. If you´d like to use it within Integromat, please contact us.
To connect your Google account to Integromat, follow the general instructions for Connecting to services. When filling in the connection information, you will be asked to enter an API key. To get your API key, go to the Google Developer console and create a project. In the Overview tab, go to Google APIs and select and activate the following items: Geocoding API, Elevation API, Time Zone API and Directions API. Next, in the Credentials tab, click on Create credentials and select API key. Then click on Server key, enter a name and click on Create to generate the requested API key.
The Get time zone information trigger allows you to get the local time for any location on earth, for any date in the past. The trigger returns two elements:
To get the current local time of a given location, you need to calculate the sum of both values. However, the result refers to the UTC. To translate the UTC to your local time, you need to add or subtract the time zone difference between UTC and your location.
For example, let´say, you are in Prague and you want to know the current local time (9.6.2014) in New York. The trigger Get time zone information returns the Time zone offset from UTC -18000 and the Daylight Savings offset from UTC 3600. The sum of both values is -14400 seconds which is -4 hours from UTC. The result you get when repeating the same steps for Prague is +2 hours from UTC. The time difference between Prague and New York is +6 hours.
