Facebook does not provide a way to have groups that anyone can join instantly. Someone already in the group must add them, or they can request approval from a group admin. The likely reason for not providing this is that it would attract spammers. Old-style open groups had spam problems and they did not even have the new group notification or chat options....

There is a way to do it, however it can be a bit complicated and requires a unix web host with php 5, so be warned. Step 1 The first thing you have to do is add the maker channel. You do this the same way you'd add any other channel, by clicking "channels" at the top of the page and searching for it, then clicking on it and pressing the "add channel" ...

Yes, you can use IFTTT and create a recipe that goes from a "Feed" to Twitter. Create a recipe: Select the feed option: Select the "new item in feed" option: You can find your RSS feed for Stack Overflow by going to your profile page and scrolling down to the lower right corner. It looks like you have to do this for each site, as I can't find a feed ...

Gmail filters only act on messages when they arrive. There's not a way to do what you want with filters. For a pure Gmail solution, you can accomplish almost what you want by judicious use of search and the Canned Responses Lab. That will make sending identical messages to a bunch of people relatively easy. Another option would be to use some third-party ...

Google+ API is currently read only. So no automated posting is possible right now. You have to wait till Google lets people create posts via API.

Using the Trello API, I created a bot that can do exactly what you want (and a lot more). It's been running for a while with very satisfied users (see this reddit thread). To use it, you invite user "butlerbot" to your board. It will create a list called "Butler" automatically. You enter commands as cards in that list. The command you want is something ...

It doesn't look like it. They have the trigger half of the solution with the Date & Time channel. You can set actions to trigger on certain days of the week at certain times. So imagine one recipe to turn your Google Voice recipe on at 9am and one to turn it off at 5pm. However, the IFTTT channel has no actions to do anything like turn on or off a ...

You can use vacation responder for this. Go into your Gmail settings and looks for a section called "Vacation Responder" This will allow you to enter an auto-response for all incoming messages. Just uncheck the "Ends" box to make sure it will always be on. Note: like it says in the help text in the image, if a contact sends you several messages, this ...

Seems to be possible now (4th September 2012, 13:50 GMT-6): Open a new document or an existing document, Type some text (or select some existing text). Change the size, style, and font to what you want. Open the Format menu. Point at "Paragraph styles", then at "Normal Text". Select "Update 'Normal Text' to match". Future new documents should then default ...

One issue with the gmail autoresponder is that it only replies to those emails sent directly to the gmail account in question. This does not include accounts from other domains that are linked to the gmail account. You can get around this, and enable the use of better filtering, by using the following process: Create a new gmail account for the autoreply (e....

The script in user79865's answer is really great! I did notice, however, that when I sent a test message outside of my office hours, I kept replying to myself every 5 minutes until it became my office hours again. In order to work around that I edited the script slightly, adding an if statement to the for loop sending the responses: function autoReply() { ...

Unfortunately, the Instagram API does not allow for posting to Instagram. It can only be used to get information from Instagram. That's why IFTTT and Zapier aren't going to be able to help you here. Consider using Instagram as your starting point. For instance, post to Instagram and automatically also post to Tumblr.

A very simple low-tech work-around is to maintain a file (e.g., Word, outlook task, etc.) with a list of these hyper-linked phrases and copy-paste the one you need into Gmail. Another option that should work in most email clients like outlook is to define a simple signature for each such hyper-link.

There using Add Service drop-list button you can add Twitter service. Configuration is minimal, and twit is created for almost every commit, but it might be just enoug. And there is similar thing for ...

I've set it up to work almost like that. Since Google shut down the YouTube subscription RSS feed it's a bit more work. What I do is first grab the RSS feed for a channel I want to subscribe to. The URL for a YouTube channel RSS feed is: http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/USER_NAME/uploads Then I create a new IFTTT recipe and add a feed with the ...

The Google+ API is read only at the moment. Google is working with select partners to provide the Page API which allows writing to the page. You may be able to work with one of these partners (see http://www.google.com/+/business/3rdpartytools.html) to get what you need. You can also request access to this API at https://developers.google.com/+/api/pages-...

Doing it from bash is very straightforward. All you need to do is run: curl -s -d /dev/null https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/DOCUMENT_ID/export?exportFormat=csv > mydocument.csv dos2unix mydocument.csv 2> /dev/null This only works for publicly shared documents though. To have access to private documents you will need to use OAuth2. You can find ...

I've done in this way: Facebook → IFTTT recipe that triggers on Buffer → Buffer (set to post every 15 minutes) → Google+ It works from Facebook page to Google+ page.

Create a Gmail account, and a Facebook account for it. Join the Facebook group with it. Configure it to receive all email notifications from the Facebook group. Create a Gmail filter that forwards to the mailing list all emails from the Facebook address that sends email notifications (e.g., notification+zj4zg6a944oc@facebookmail.com). If you use ...

There is currently no way to do this via the Gmail web app itself. "Delayed/scheduled send" is a popular feature request for Gmail, so this may change in the future. Boomerang is a popular 3rd party tool that can send scheduled or recurring emails.

A webapp like IFTTT - If This Than That is probably the easiest way to achieve this. Sign up on IFTTT, use this recipe that I have published & click on Add recipe button (if required, you'll be prompted to activate the necessary channels) to automatically store a copy of the pic to Dropbox. If you prefer, you can have the picture sent to you via email ...

If you're interested in use (more than in development), you should give a try to rankade, our ranking system. It's free to use and it's designed to manage rankings (and stats, and more) for small or large groups of players. Rankade doesn't use Elo, but its algorithm (called ree algorithm), although more complex (here's a comparison), is similar to Elo if ...

Explanation First Step Create and fill-in with one of the email addresses, a single option checkbox question. This could be the first ...

Here is my answer to my own question. function autoReply() { var interval = 5; // if the script runs every 5 minutes; change otherwise var wkend = [6,0]; // 1=Mo, 2=Tu, 3=We, 4=Th, 5=Fr, 6=Sa, 0=Su var wkendMessage = "Hi, Thank you for contacting us.

At this time it's not possible. It's worth to said that on May 18, 2016 Google announced that the Google Slides API will be launched in the comming months.
