Automate with IftttIfttt is an automation service for 2-step scenarios, like adding data to Google Sheets, sending emails or Slack messages on a trigger.
You can easily recreate Email and Slack notifications with only IFTTT action.
Before you start, go to Ifttt website and register if you don't have an account yet.
Step 1Go to Ifttt dashboard and click on New Applet.
Click on This.
Step 2Search for Webhooks in Choose a service window.
Click on the Webhooks tile and then select the Receive a web request option.
Step 3Name to your trigger. You may have multiple triggers, but they all should have different names.
Step 4Now click on That.
Select a service you want to use for notification or action (Slack, Email) and go through the service setup process.
Step 5Complete action fields
Unlike Zapier of Flow, you may use only three Value fields for IFTTT and those are already preset as:
- Value1 – Composition Name
- Value2 – Render Path
- Value3 – Render time
Step 6Now go to the Webhooks page and click on Documentation.
Copy your Key
And paste it along with the trigger name from Step 3 to the IFTTT action interface in BGRenderer's Post-render actions
Test the new Applet and continue working with BG Renderer MAX
If you remove and then add the Ifttt action again, Key will be lost. Go back to your Ifttt dashboard to retrieve it and paste again.
