I love that IFTTT automated recipe! Once it is set up it is so easy to use. Finally, you just have to be sure the IFTTT app is set up on your phone. (You only need to do that once).My favorite IFTTT recipe is sharing photos from Instagram right onto Twitter. #IFTTT Click To Tweet
IFTTT AutomatedLife Contest
Back in 2015 IFTTT held a contest. They awarded ten winners for sharing about their productivity app on Twitter.
It was a great way to get more people interested in using IFTTT to automate their lives.

What Happens When IFTTT Goes Wrong?
Once in a while a recipe may go sour. In the 6 years I’ve been using this productivity app only a half dozen times something went wrong. It usually was an instagram post that did not show on the Twitter stream. But IFTTT sends out an email if there are any problems with the app to warn you.
Oftentimes, you may just have to adjust your settings in IFTTT to the apps that are connected to it like Twitter. For example, the authorization may need to be reset.

Turning of Recipes To Stop Automation
Don’t forget in a major crisis to turn off automations you may have set with IFTTT for social media posts. For example, I turned off my IFTTT quote maker during the Covid-19 crisis as I was concerned about the wrong type of quotes going out the first few weeks during the crisis.
Now, I’ve just reconnected it, it’s easy to do! You just have to remember to do this if events warrant it.
