Overall Satisfaction with IFTTT

IFTTT is used by our marketing department to automate certain marketing and business processes. For example, every time a live webinar concludes and the recording is available to be posted, a reminder is sent to the person whose job it is to post the recording in our membership area. Other uses include posting new blog posts automatically to several social media channels when appropriate.
  • Once you set it up you can pretty much forget about it. If there is an issue with one of the rules, they will send you an email to let you know.
  • IFTTT connects pretty much all the apps that you need connected.
  • Whenever I come across a step that should need no human action, I try to set it up with IFTTT first.
  • At first it is hard to learn the "language" of IFTTT but once you get the concept, it is easy to set up rules that will automate your business.
  • There are many superfluous sample rules that are show cased that will make you wonder, Why would anybody want that? But the idea is to give you a picture of endless possibilities.
  • IFTTT has saved us on labor costs.
I am using both but for different uses. seems to be opimized for social media sharing only, whereas that is only a small part of what IFTTT does.
Any situation that is well defined, IFTTT is well suited for. The more time you put into the setup and design of the rule, the better off you will be in the end. You can easily cause chaos by setting up a rule that somewhat duplicates another already existing rule.
