IFTTT - a simple way to connect the dots and not miss a thing!

Overall Satisfaction with IFTTT

I personally use IFTTT to automate tasks and improve efficiency. There's always "little things" that need to be done through the course of a work day in fitness, and little events that trigger other things that need to happen. IFTTT allows me to think less, work smarter, and make sure I'm not missing out on any of the things that need doing without necessarily having to pour over a checklist every time.

Pros

  • IFTTT integrates with many of the apps and programs I use on a regular basis, increasing it's value and usefulness to me and my business.
  • IFTTT has a pretty easy to use and intuitive structure - it really is "if this... then that"! No complicated formulas, structures, or commands.
  • The user interface is visually attractive and easy to navigate on any platform.

Cons

  • It would be great if I could create more specific or specialized triggers in IFTTT, for example, triggering a specific task at a specific time to be added to my ToDoist on a specific list, label, or project.
  • It would be great to see more professional products, including my Club Management Software (ClubOS) and my virtual coaching platform (Trainerize), integrated into IFTTT.
  • IFTTT has allowed me to spend more time doing the important work of helping my clients, and less time checking things off a to-do list.
  • IFTTT has helped me "get it all done" more regularly, and ensure I'm not skipping any steps or missing anything in my process without having to scrutinize my work constantly.
IFTTT is very well suited to a business that uses apps and web-based programs to operate on a daily basis. Businesses that have many different tasks, functions, and things-to-do happening throughout the day, as a result of something else (lots of triggers and cause & effect) could make great use of IFTTT. This would also, I'm sure, be very effective for business making use of smartphones and tablets, so they can all effectively be linked together.

IFTTT would likely NOT be well-suited to your business if you don't use many of the apps or web-based services that IFTTT integrates with.
