IFTTT is an acronym that stands for “If then, then that,” and it’s also the name of a very cool automation app that connects other apps and devices together to create whatever it is the user wants or needs.
Automation for tasks that saves the user tons of time are called recipes and IFTTT already has tons of them saved on their platform for the user to use. All you have to do is sign up, connect the applicable apps or devices and then select the recipe you would like for the tasks you want automated.
For example, IFTTT allows users to connect their Gmail to a job board such as Indeed. So, whenever Indeed posts a job listing for your chosen search term, such as “construction workers,” the job listing will be emailed to your Gmail account. This allows the user to cut out the time it would have taken to go to Indeed and manually search for jobs.
You can also create your own recipes, and the web is full of them if you lack imagination. Here are a few IFTTT recipes that can make your life a whole heck of a lot easier.
