Process Automation with IFTTT

March 17, 2016

I’ve used this tool for quite some time but after talking with a number of people, have discovered that most have never heard of it.  It’s a web service that automatically does tasks for you based on whatever rules you give it (they call them recipes).  Here are some examples of processes you can automate with ifttt.com.

The recipes follow the simple IF…Then methodology.

  • Download Facebook photos that you’re tagged in, upload them to a Google Drive.
  • Download gMail attachments, upload them to Dropbox.
  • Search Craigslist for keywords, notify you via email when a new listing is posted.
  • You can check out sample recipes or create your own at http://ifttt.com.
