We’re very proud to announce that MeisterTask now has its own channel on IFTTT, the popular web service that helps you be more productive by automating workflows for you! IFTTT, which stands for ‘If this then that‘, offers more than 300 channels all in all—you’ll find anything from popular apps like Slack and Evernote to WiFi-enabled refrigerators and even health trackers for your dog!
In IFTTT, channels can be connected to create Recipes. There are two kinds:
The classic IF Recipe consists of a trigger and an action, and MeisterTask can be either one. Here’s a list of all actions and triggers currently supported:
Task created in section. This trigger fires when a new task is created in a section. Please note that it does not fire when an existing task is simply moved from another section.
Task created in project. This trigger fires when a new task is created in the specified project. Please note that it does not fire when a task is being moved over from an existing project.
Task assigned to me. This trigger fires whenever a task is assigned to you.
Create a task. This action will create a new task in the section you specify.
Once set up, IF Recipes run in the background, so you can focus on more important stuff 🙂
DO Recipes run with just a tap—you can download the IFTTT app for your smartphone and create your personalized button, camera and note which then quickly performs the desired action (such as ‘Create a task‘) when activated.
