Overall Satisfaction with IFTTT

IFTTT is used in our organization to automate and connect different software platforms quickly and reliably. With this tool, we are able to get notifications or link different, but similar, tools together. For example, I can link my Todoist To Do lists to my Google calendar, so calendar events go into my to-do list, where I track my day. Basically, it allows us to use the tools we feel comfortable with, while still connecting to tools that we may not use as often.
  • The large library of applets and services allows for many options and uses
  • The user interface is straight forward and simple to use
  • Apps for mobile devices allows for additional features and event triggers
  • Ability to make your own applets or connect your own software with the IFTTT Platform and tools
  • Free
  • Sometimes the Android application can be a bit buggy
  • Android application drains the battery
  • Sometimes the applications can already do what IFTTT applets are designed to do
  • Setting up automation between platforms saves us time.
  • We are more consistent with some of our actions, decreasing downtime due to errors.
  • Employees are pleased they can use the tools they like, and still get the information from company provided tools.
IFTTT is free and easy to use, where Zapier has a freemium business model. We actually use both platforms for different things. I prefer Zapier for more complicated connections, where IFTTT allows us to have more connections without the added fee. Additionally, IFTTT allows us to do more unique and one-off automations.
Because of the multitude of options with IFTTT, it is hard to describe the best use scenarios, but I will share how I use the platform at this time.
I use IFTTT to check Craigslist for certain IT equipment postings and email me if that occurs, turning items on and off with geo-fencing and WiFi network presence, and linking my calendar to my to-do list.
