Choose Your Preferred (sub-)Calendar per IFTTT Applet

Courtesy FYI: The big thrill here →  the new iOS Calendar channel, unlike the gCal channel, permits targeting a specific calendar per applet/recipe, profoundly helpful for multiple tracking scenarios. Where there is (automated) tracking, there is enhanced accountability, the linchpin of consistent productivity! Examples, as each item is checkmarked as done:

  • Task / iOS Reminders Work list (or ToDoist/ToodleDo) → iOS Work Done cal
  • iOS Reminders Reading List → iOS Read It cal (wih option to add related notes later)
  • iOS Location channel → in/out times tossed to iOS Out & About cal

Apple’s pre-made applets (some reflected below) are cool, but the true power lies in creating an applet from scratch. If you’re an IFTTT novice, know the system will walk you through the creation steps. To get a hands on grasp of the basics, check out my quickie how-to tutorial.

IFTTT’s iOS Channel

UPDATE: The Google Calendar IFTTT channel now also empowers you to choose a specific Calendar during applet creation. Oddly, for reasons eluding me, the iOS Channel adores tossing duplicates, a problem not encountered with gCal. Huge surprise: I’ve switched back to gCal. 😏
