Going back and forth between your favorite productivity apps is nothing new to us. Several services allow us to become more organized and productive with what we do. But, running in between apps may take some time, not to mention extra effort for doing repetitive tasks. You may sometimes forget to update a note or your calendar along the process.

What if you can automate and sync all these tasks without you having to worry if you have added an event on your calendar or to-do list? IFTTT makes it happen for you.

What is IFTTT, and How Does it Work?

IFTTT stands for If This Then That. It is a simple cause and effect system that creates an action given a trigger you set. When your trigger, which is “If This,” happens, the action “Then That” follows. For instance, when you create an event in your calendar, it automatically updates your Microsoft To Do notes if you need them to.

That means you can connect and integrate your apps and services using IFTTT. You don’t have to do it manually. With the IFTTT app, you set the trigger for the system to do the action automatically.

You can set various triggers and actions through the applets (previously called recipe) on IFTTT. These applets will manage them, so everything you need will be in order around your apps.

Various applets are available on IFTTT for better automation capabilities. Some popular applets such as Notify a Slack channel when Microsoft To Do tasks are completed and Sync Google Tasks and MS To Do can help a lot with your productivity and time management. However, you can also create customized applets based on your specific needs.
