I am using the Daily Video Conference Plugin to create video conferences between users. I need a way to get the duration from the daily API to return the the duration of the video call in minutes.
There is a meeting information data source that comes with the plugin. It will return the duration in seconds so be sure to divide it by 60. Here’s a demo of that setup
It’s not currently available as an action but if you need it here’s a demo of the API call set up.
Duration is the value you’ll want to save. Let me know if you have any additional questions!
This is a great answer, thank you. How can I dynamically pass the room name to the api call? I want to be able to find the duration of a specific call by setting a workflow on a button labeled “Get Duration”. Thank you, again.
Yep, you can reference dynamic data or a variable in the property editor. Here’s a screenshot of what that looks like
and then you can display data to update the variable from the workflow editor
I updated the demo editor to highlight this approach
