IFTTT stands for: “If This Then That”, is pronounced like: “GIFT”, and is a service that lets you take actions in one app in response to actions in another. IFTTT channels have two parts. The first are Triggers – things that happen in your app than can cause things to happen in others. Second are Actions – things that can respond to a Trigger in another app. The combination of a Trigger and an Action is called a Recipe.
At midnight each day, we will create a high-level summary of the time you logged on the previous day. This will include the total time you logged as well as information about the time you spent in different categories and productivity levels. You can use this to create custom daily reports, notifications, or log structured data in other systems.
You can use IFTTT to connect your FocusTime sessions to other apps, reducing distractions and making it easier to concentrate. You can take actions in other apps when a FocusTime session starts or stops, and you can use other apps to control when a FocusTime session kicks in.
