  • HOW TO USE

    IFTTT TO

    AUTOMATE

    YOUR ONLINE

    LIFE

  • May be you are

    thinking about this:

  • The web is a big

    tubular mesh

  • A mesh of

    interconnectedness

  • You would want

    this

  • What you post on

    Facebook

  • would automatically

    be posted on other

    sites

  • Here comes

    IFTTT.

  • It has changed all

    these.

  • It makes the web

    very powerful.

  • Web-service

    ingredients are

    brought together.

  • IFTTT means

  • If this, then that

  • There is a trigger

    event that happens.

  • Then, a resulting

    action occurs.

  • First, log into your

    account.

  • Type your username

    or email ad.

  • Type your

    password.

  • Then, click sign in.

  • Be sure that you

    already have an

    account.

  • If not, create one.

  • Connect to some

    channels.

  • Here are some of

    the channels.

  • What is a channel?

  • What is their

    essence?

  • It is IFTTT language

    for a web service.

  • Also, its the

    language for other

    actions.

  • Now, lets pull the

    trigger.

  • Create a recipe.

  • Open the My

    Recipes tab.

  • It is a the top of

    the page.

  • Then, click the big

    blue Create a

    Recipe..

  • Then, you can see

    a text onscreen.

  • Click the "this"

    link.

  • Choose trigger

    channel.

  • If you want to view

    all the channels,

  • scroll the page

    down.

  • Or you can click

    View All Channels

    button.

  • A chosen service

    will do this:

  • Kicks off the cause in

    the cause-and-effect

    IFTTT recipe

  • If you choose a

    channel that you

    havent activate,

  • Youll be prompted

    now to do this.

  • Here is an example.

  • Next, youre

    presented with this:

  • A list of specific

    events

  • These are

    available for the

    channel.

  • Click

    this.

  • This sets the

    IFTTT in motion.

  • Then, youll add a

    specific trigger fields.

  • Click this.

  • This narrows trigger

    events

  • to specific

    occurrences

  • And now

  • BOOM!

  • You are halfway

    through it.

  • It is time to arrange

    the consequences.

  • Click on the blue

    "that" link to

    continue.

  • It is the same as

    the first step.

  • To set up a

    subsequent action,

  • You need to choose

    a channel.

  • In this case, I

    chose Facebook.

  • You are given three

    options here.

  • In this case, I chose

    Create a status

    message.

  • Fill it up.

  • Then, click

    Create Action.

  • You are, then,

    navigated to Action

    Field Screen.

  • Here, you can fine-

    tune the outcome of

    your recipe.

  • If it is done, click

    Action.

  • Then, you are

    navigated to this

    page:

  • This page contains

    your default

    settings.

  • This is a very sound

    one.

  • If you are done

    checking

    everything,

  • just click

    Update.

  • And with this,

  • IFTTT recipe is

    complete.

  • You have to

    remember this:

  • There are more that

    a dozen recipes in

    IFTTT.

  • Each will tell you

  • How easy each

    service can be.

  • Just take time to craft

    a powerful trigger.

  • Also, dont forget

    useful actions.

  • And now, that you

    have this

    knowledge,

  • You can pull of

    impressive feats.

  • Thank you for

    watching!
