If you your job often has you bogged down doing the kind of small tasks that a well-designed web application could do, then I have found the perfect tool for you! The tool today is Iftt, which stands for “if this, then that.”
Iftt allows you to pick a simple trigger, such as getting tagged in a Facebook post, and automates a simple outcome, be it a text message so you can take action, or direct action like a Facebook status or a Twitter post.
Iftt’s system is efficient and simple. Triggers, the “this” of the statement, can be chosen from a comprehensive list of channels. These triggers act as the starter that creates the action, or the “that” of the Iftt statement. Ifttt calls this a recipe – a recipe to quickly get your simple, everday webtasks done without even thinking about it!
Ifttt has already become a hugely popular tool, with 1 million tasks created already! The Iftt team is fast and capable, now active on Twitter and Facebook. Try Ifttt to consolidate your small tasks and focus on your business!
I tried out Ifttt myself, and found out just how easy it is. Here are some shots of my process!
