IFTTT makes integrations simple

2016-03-18

It's a great solution and works very well, and we've since expanded our initial IFTTT setup to include extra fields that Envoy is collecting into our notification emails so that they are more useful to the receiving party.

Pros

IFTTT is very robust in the number and type of actions you can make it perform, as well as the different types of integrations between other software systems (such as Envoy).

Cons

It doesn't really matter to us though as our notifications are used for logging purposes and not real-time activities, so it hasn't been an issue.

IFTTT makes it easy to connect processes

2019-10-05

I love how easy it is to use IFTTT and they are always at the forefront of new tech automations.

Pros

I love how many integrations come baked into IFTTT.

Cons

Sometimes the triggers fail and the alerts don’t happen in real time. This proves as an issue as I won’t find out until something else breaks.

Automation without a need for Code.

2021-07-07

IFTTT has a really intuitive UI meaning people with very limited technical skills can still get workflows running pretty quickly.

Pros

The ability to easily integrate multiple disparate applications with a no-code solution brings a massive amount of automation without the need for deep developer skills.

Cons

Also the push notifications via SMS are extremely hit and miss.

A nice an easy way to create automations

2020-06-15

It is a nice way to connect to APIs without any programming knowledge.

Pros

The user interface of IFTT is so much easy to use than there is not need to spent a lot of time reading the documentation.

Cons

There are less supported triggers (or APIs) supported than other similar products.

simply amazing

2020-01-07

Alexa can't trigger things based on weather reports, but after a little hunting I discovered IFTTT, and it can, along with a whole slew of other things.

Pros

The interface is super simple to use.

Cons

The interface is super simple to use, almost too simple sometimes.

The basic setup, ease of integration, help site make IFTTT a product with great potential.

If this isn't Black Magic Then That's IFTTT

2019-07-17

IFTTT is a valuable tool for my personal and working life, the tool has proved to be a great asset to automate repetitive tasks.

Pros

When I discovered IFTTT a few years back my jaw dropped. I couldn't believe my eyes.

Cons

Another issue is that some of the notifications take a while to appear, making some of the integration unsuitable if a real-time feedback is needed.

Makes maintaining social media easy

2021-04-08

IFTT has simplified my social media management and given me time to focus on developing content and not spending it on maintaining multiple platforms.

Pros

This was very simple to set up for what I needed. It allows me to easily map posts between multiple social media platfroms.

Cons

When I first started using it, it did not always trigger the way that I expected. This seems to be corrected now but I don't know if it was something I did.

There are so many useful integration options that help you save so much time with social media management. I have all of my business social media integrated with my Instagram, so when I post there, it posts everywhere!

Cons

I don't have a single complaint. IFTTT offers great service and customer service.

The Gateway app for Automation

2018-09-06

Pros

- it’s like, shopping for automations - simple UI offers automation ideas that you haven’t thought of Integrates with other Automation tools (Drafts5 & Workflow) to complete advanced automations

Cons

None. But, actions/triggers are limited to whatever is available by the software companies. So, can’t customize with additional coding, like zapier’s formatter. But I’m not a programmer and can barely write JavaScript

Very useful for adding functionality to my mobile devices and apps

2018-12-05

Pros

Automatically notifies me when there is any change made to any of my shared calendars Automatically notifies me when an Alexa timer goes off, when I'm in another room in the house Automatically sends me an email if it is going to rain tomorrow Automatically gives me a notification at 6am every day with the weather report Automatically gives me a notification if my CO or Smoke detectors detect an alarm situation Very easy to use and setup

Cons

I wish there were even more "canned" templates, as they are much easier to use than creating your own custom templates (although it is possible to do that as well).

Automation for Everyone But Has Its Limits

2018-12-14

Pros

One of the key benefits it has over some other popular automation platforms (aside from being free) is that it has a fully featured, native mobile apps for iOS and Google Play, and even the super helpful Apple Watch app.

Cons

The other big limitation is that IFTTT supports one-step automations, but anything needing conditional input or multiple steps can't be done directly in the app (although more savvy users can connect it to other apps to simulate that type of workflow).

IF This Then That, Amazing tool!

2018-07-01

Pros

Connects to Tons of other applications, and allows some extremely unconventional workflows between various companies.

Cons

I would imagine that any larger companies would have a programmer able to handle any thing they need in a manner that is more secure and controlled. I personally think that should they make this platform free they would see a huge upswing of users and gain a much larger platform to utilize for advertising, If the cost wasn't there they would see some seriously excellent usage and gain creative insights and data surrounding the over needs of the various industries that use it

Simple and quick

2019-09-20

IFTTT is a great introduction to the idea of using automation to really improve your day-to-day productivity and is worth trying for anyone just getting started with this concept without having to pay anything.

Pros

It is exceptionally easy to set something up, and ther vast number of examples serve as very good inspiration.

Cons

There is a notable lag with some triggers, which to be fair, is made clear by the app itself, but this still makes it unusable for those situations where real-time updates are required.

The Best software that integrates activities across Digital platforms

2021-06-05

Ifttt has helped me a lot now I don't need to write articles which is so boring I only choose blogs i want to take the articles and automatically will be added to my blog.

Pros

I often use Ifttt to create an automatic posting in my blog and share it in social media as this drives traffic without having to write articles and publish them, it works with the use of RSS feed from different blogs and connect it with my blog using the ifttt software.

Cons

The problem with ifttt its not easy to use, I watched a couple of YouTube videos in order to understand how to create an automatic posting in my blog the dashboard must be focused on easy to use style.

Very useful for office automation

2020-04-04

IFTTT has helped to to ensure that my office is automated to suit me and my clients. I have smart plugs set which, when used with IFTTT, help to start heaters to warm my office for work when I am nearly home, making sure that I am comfortable and have less to do manually when i get back.

Pros

I like the ability to link IFTTT with other, real-world events (such as the time of the sun setting), as I can then automate my office to behave in the way I want it to without lifting a finger.

Cons

Sometimes some of the 'triggers' take a little to work (for example, sometimes my office lamp comes on 10 minutes or so after sunset, which is a pain).
