In the time that you have read this sentence, you have likely received at least one notification. The reminders that pop up on our phones, wearables, computer screens, and other smart devices are helpful ways to know when you have an upcoming meeting or if someone is at your door. However, getting notifications from endless sources can be overwhelming and even lead us to get desensitized towards the information we receive.
Using IFTTT can help you streamline the details of your day and assist in refining the information you receive.
Notifications are completely customizable. You can specify the types of reminder you want or only receive them during certain hours with filter code. Be in control of how your reminders appear with formatting, the ability to add ingredients, and input any links or photos you want to include.
Only find out about specific events
Never forget a birthday, get a notification 15 minutes before an event ends, or receive a reminder when an event with a specific keyword is about to start. These are all possible with IFTTT’s Google Calendar integration.
To create an Applets that only notifies you when there is a specific event that is about to begin, use the Event from search starts trigger in Google Calendar and input the keyword or phrase.
Get tailored Twitter notifications
Use the Tweet from search or New tweet by a specific user triggers to get a notification about certain Twitter activity. With thousands of tweets sent out every second, it can be overwhelming to scroll endlessly or search for pertinent information. Get it sent right to you.
Find out about certain weather conditions
Depending on where you live and the season, the weather can feel unpredictable. Getting notifications about rain or unexpected cold can be powerful a way to be prepared.
