    IFTTT applets significantly enhance productivity by automating routine tasks, thus reducing the time spent on manual activities and allowing you to focus on more critical aspects of your work or personal life. For instance, you can set up an applet to automatically save email attachments to a specific folder in your cloud storage or create an applet to post your blog updates across all social media platforms simultaneously.
