I’ve been tinkering with IFTTT this weekend… IFTTT stand for “If This Than That” … 

This web platform can be very useful for those of us in the healthcare space who curate, save and log significant content via RSS feeds, favorited tweets, etc… The potential uses are significant… IMHO.

 

The site has a very user friendly, simple UI that is intuitive and easy to navigate.  IFTTT has the potential to simplify and macro many of the tasks I perform each day.  

For example… you can —

  • Send an RSS feed to your Dropbox or an Evernote folder…
  • Send a Facebook post to Twitter
  • Store your Favorite tweets in a Dropbox folder or an Evernote Folder

You simply define what task you want to automate… and IFTTT takes it from there…

Just a few of the tasks you can automate

 

Choose your trigger… or your starting point… 

Let’s say you want to Buffer your Facebook Page posts… In this box you would choose the FB Page box.. 

Choose your “Trigger”

 

Then you will be prompted you define the “Action” … in this case moving the Facebook post to Buffer. 

 

Create your action

 

Done!  

You’ve completed your first ITFF :-)

Pretty cool…. check it out.
