Imagine using the internet to provide a course of action based on a qualified event occurring. I’ve been using an Evernote e-mail address to mail information directly into Evernote. However, it’s time consuming adding tags and moving notes into other notebooks. Recently, I came across a service called ifttt (if this, then that), which allows you to automate flows or “recipes” that are based on a “qualified” (one that you set) event occurring.
Create Tasks and Recipes with IFTTT
IFTTT connects two services of your choice to create an automated flow called a recipe. Recipes consist of Triggers and resulting Actions. You can create your own recipe or use those created by other ifttt users. There’s a near-infinite number of ways to use ifttt.
IFTTT is a sophisticated tool in any modern knowledge worker’s arsenal. With the additional channels (additional to Evernote and GMail) it offers an abundance of ways to automate getting information into Evernote or the other 48 channels.
I love this web service. It saves me a lot of time.
