IFTTT stands for If This, Then That.
A free service that lets you customize its features to help with your daily productivity.
IFTTT Productivity PlanningIFTTT works by connecting cloud-based services, from Dropbox and Google Drive, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and iOS Reminders.
All your accounts can be linked through the cloud from your IFTTT account. You will be able to watch for events that can trigger these accounts.
IFTTT is easily customizable. Here are some examples of recipes.

Send Gmail attachments to DropboxEven if you aren’t a Dropbox user, you can alter this to use Google Drive instead.
Create to-do reminders via emailYou can organize your day with the iOS Reminders app by sending an email tagged #todo to the IFTTT’s trigger address.
Track your time automaticallyYou can add an entry into a Google spreadsheet when ever you like. Just search your office’s location in the menu and configure the names of the folder.
Track mileage via text messageYou don’t have to worry about tracking anymore mileage. This will send you a text message tagged #miles with the number of miles to add. The entry appears on separate lines of a Google spreadsheet, so they can be added up easily at the end of the month.
There are many different recipe types you can use for IFTTT productivity:
