Having done tests on four possible cases, these are the results: Left in inbox unopened - picked up by the trigger Left in inbox opened - picked up Archived unopened - not picked up Archived opened - not picked up So the relevant factor is whether the email is still in the inbox. You can take a look at it, but not archive it otherwise it won't be picked ...

Zapier co-founder here, for anyone else curious about how you might do this yourself, Github has really killer API docs which show how to use their API to read/create your gists. Its kind of annoying as you'll have to "poll" for new entries and compare them across time, but it isn't infeasible. Using a standar RSS reader like Google reader is a simple ...

It isn't working because the http://plu.sr site is down. Try using a different Google+ RSS Feed provider such as http://googleplusrss.nodester.com You just add you Google+ ID to the end of the URL - like this > http://googleplusrss.nodester.com/103156295300828440975

After testing many different solutions (see my question above for more information), I discarded my approach to use Email. Instead I've subscribed to the RSS feeds of the newsletters and use IFTTT recipes to automatically save new feed items to Pocket. Subscribe to the feed(s) via RSS Create a new IFTTT recipe Choose Feed trigger channel Choose New feed ...

As the only way ifttt.com can post to Wordpress, is using the XML-RPC API, and that API currently doesn't support supplying custom post type while calling insert post methods(will support from 3.4), you can make use of the filter wp_insert_post_data. I accomplished that last month while building a hack. Here is a hack that would work the way you want, just ...

[Further updates to this answer added below the original answer on 4th January 2013] If all you're looking to do is push new articles to dropbox, you could base your recipe on this one: https://ifttt.com/recipes/59335 From your recipe it looks like you're trying to append each new article to a text file but that you're also trying to create a new file title ...

try this Go to http://page2rss.com Paste the page address you wish to monitor in the "Page URL to RSS" bar Copy the RSS Feed URL from "To receive updates for this page in RSS format copy-paste this link into your feed reader." or from the "Subscribe to Feed" on the right hand side of the page. Use this link in IFTTT RSS Trigger. Not sure how instant it ...

I contacted IFTTT support and they told me that this is currently not possible (within IFTTT) but that they'll take it as feedback for future enhancements. So, the answer would appear to be "you can't". I'd love to see some ideas for alternatives using a third-party solution.

As mentioned in How do I connect Google + with Twitter? the lack of full read/write API for Google+ means that you can't directly tweet to G+ as of yet. However, there are browser extensions and third-party services that allow you to cross-post. Google+Tweet allows you to integrate Twitter into your Google Plus account. Certain applications, such as ...

It's true that IFTTT's GTalk channel doesn't work with Hangouts, but I found a similar service, Zapier, that does. It's geared more towards business users, so the connected services include more service apps and less social media, and the free version is limited to 5 recepies (or Zaps), but it's something.

At the bottom of the settings page there is a link: I’d like to deactivate my account. (You can get to the settings page by clicking your account name in the upper right corner then choosing "Settings".) They note on the subsequent page that Deactivating your IFTTT account is permanent and cannot be undone. Enter your password to complete the ...

IFTTT states in their help file: Personal Recipes check for new Trigger data every 15 minutes. Some Recipes have “Quick Triggers” that will run as soon as they receive Trigger data. Quick Triggers can be identified by a lightning bolt icon. So for setting up a recipe based on a WeMo switch to only fire every 30 minutes you'd have to set up a service in ...

After some research, here's what I did, maybe there's a better way. With IFTTT, create a this rule for a RSS feed and add this feed from Delicious: http://feeds.delicious.com/v2/rss/{user} Then, that rule may be whatever you like, mine was Pocket.

I emailed IFTTT support about this and here's what they said: Really cool idea! This isn’t currently possible, but we’ll keep it in mind. Thanks for sharing your feedback. Your Recipe will check your feed every ≈15 minutes for new information. I hope that clears things up. If you have any further questions, please let me know. I know that ...

If all you really want is to send an email to a group of addresses when a new blog post gets published, I suggest you do not use IFTTT for that. Do this instead: Set up a Google Group and add all the addresses that you want to receive the email. Make sure no-reply@blogger.com can send mail to the group. Go to your blog's Settings → Mobile and email ...

I had the same issue while activating the Gtalk channel, here's how I solved it: Just waited a couple of minutes (like 10) after adding the bot@ifttt.com to my contact list, and suddenly the bot was online, then after 5 mins it was offline again (I was multitasking so I missed that chance to press the "Send Pin" button), so I waited again, and it went ...

Judging by the way your worded your question, you've already gone through IFTTT's process. Since there's no add-in for URL body, there's no way to capture it this way. You can see all the possible notes IFTTT can create in Evernote in its channel description. However, it is theoretically possible to have auto-clipping of page body because that's a feature ...
