Overall Satisfaction with IFTTT

IFFT is being used as part of our automation back end. We are currently using it as a bridge between multiple services such as Google and different sensors that do not normally talk to each other. We are using IFFT to publish data to Google Docs and read in data from other services.
  • Very simple interface.
  • Connects to a multitude of services and sensors.
  • Allows integration between services that would normally require expensive custom solutions.
  • The interface is sometimes too simple.
  • There are some clunky issues when you want to do more than one event at a time.
  • Not open for full customization.
  • This has been a great positive ROI as we no longer have to build custom integrations between services.
  • Our time to live integrations has been considerably shortened.
  • We have been able to find new services just by exploring what IFTTT has to offer.
For the most part, IFTTT is great but it does have its limitations. You may only do one thing at a time. If you want branching logic it can be cumbersome and clunky. This it where something like Microsoft Flow does better. For simplicity, nothing can beat IFTTT for how easy it is to set up and use right out of the box.
I find that the owners of IFTTT are very responsive to questions and enhancement requests. They are very active on the forums. Speaking of the forums, there is a very active and robust user forum that can assist in almost any issue that you may come across. I have very rarely come across something that I or someone else could not solve.
We have used Microsoft Flow, Stringify and IFTTT for various solutions. Stringify is no longer an option as it was shut down. We have found that IFTTT and Flow both have their place and in some places working together for the same task. We have found there is no one universal platform and it is all about the end solution.
IFTTT really shines in two major places. First, integration between two platforms that are not normally integrated, like Google and Twitter, for example. You could have any tweet with specific keywords dumped to a Google spreadsheet and then have that sheet loaded into a DB for data mining. The second is the ability to call a Web Hook.
