What is IFTTT?

IFTTT is a service that lets you create powerful connections with one simple statement:

If this, then that. We call 'this' the Trigger, and 'that' the Action. Together, it is a Recipe.

IFTTT is pronounced like “gift” without the “g.”

Channels

Channels are the basic building blocks of IFTTT. Each Channel has its own Triggers and Actions. Some example Channels are: 

 
EmailWeatherLinkedIn

Evernote

View all 61 Channels

Triggers

The this part of a Recipe is a Trigger. Some example Triggers are “I’m tagged in a photo on Facebook” or “I check in on Foursquare.”

Actions

The that part of a Recipe is an Action. Some example Actions are “send me a text message” or “create a status message on Facebook.”

Ingredients

Pieces of data from a Trigger are called Ingredients. For example, the Ingredients of an Email Trigger could be: subject, body, attachment, received date, and the sender’s address.

Recipes

Personal Recipes are a combination of a Trigger and an Action from your active Channels. Personal Recipes look like this:
