The trio of IFTTT widgets make it possible to trigger an action without opening an app or even unlocking your phone. If you have ever come across an Applet that features the Button widget, Note widget, or Camera widget, you may already have one of these features enabled.

Getting started with widgets
Setting up your widgets is simple with the steps in this handy Help article. But, before you can enable the widgets, you need to have a widget-triggered Applet enabled.
What is possible with widgets?
When it comes to widgets, you can let your imagination go wild. These services allow you to create simple triggers that activate powerful routines or automations. The Button widget allows you to press a button on your phone or on your Apple watch, the Camera lets you quickly take a photo, while the Note widget gives you a space to jot down a few words.
Whether you need to remember something you just saw, track times throughout the day, or jot down a quick note… widgets have you covered. Check out the collection below to see what other IFTTT-ers are doing with these triggers.
A button press is a simple fix if you have a room with multiple enabled devices from different brands. Through a multi-action Applet, you could activate them all at the same time and save yourself the headache of going through multiple apps. Or, using a query you could save locations in a Google Sheet. Check out any of the Applets below to enable them yourself or for inspiration to create your own.
Snap a picture and upload it to Google Drive, save it in a dedicated Evernote note, or even share it to social media. All without a single other click.
Jot down an idea, add a note to a file, send a message to friends, or add to your must-read list without leaving your phone’s home screen.
