Auto-Tracking Blog Posts

Short & sweet:

Last week, I mentioned a new channel in IFTTT → the iOS Calendar. Google Calendar served my tracking needs until iOS muscled its way into the automation ‘hood. With gCal, one calendar served as receptacle for any and all IFTTT applets. With iOS Cal, organizing bliss blossoms thanks to the ability to select a calendar per applet.

Examples:

  • Tweet → iOS Cal: SM.Twitter
  • FaceBook status, photo, etc → SM.FaceBook
  • Pinterest pins → SM.Pinterest
  • Completed ToDoist/ iOS Reminders → Accomplished

Provided an IFTTT channel exists for the app you want to automate, the possibilities astound. Tracking, productivity’s BFF.
