How do you deal with routine, repetitive tasks of your WordPress projects with WooCommerce themes? Perhaps for their solutions you use any plugins. Or do you solve them manually every time. In any case, you will agree that it would be nice if some of these tasks are performed automatically, without downloading any additional plugin?
IFTTT is an automated task manager that will help you in this situation. After publishing, you want to share your posts from the blog on social networks. It is logical. You do not want every time to do it manually, so installing a WordPress plugin that will do it for you, but who will be an additional burden on your server.
You may want to have a backup copy of your articles in a folder on Dropbox, but you do not want to mess with SQL files to locate a particular post. You cannot find a plugin that would perform a similar task, so their own copy and paste posts in Word files.
Next situation. You want to publish a blog post in your WooCommerce themes some photos from your Instagram, but not all of them. You want to share photos, which will be interesting for everyone, rather than those where your dog licks your finger. You install another plugin for WordPress, which selects the photos with certain tags from the feed Instagram, and sends them. Or maybe you do it manually again.
All these taka can be done by means of a simple plugin that can be added to any 8Theme’s WooCommerce template.
IFTTT – a task scheduler for any premium WooCommerce themes
IFTTT (If This Then That) plugin for premium and free WooCommerce themes gives you creative control over the products and applications that you love. In IFTTT you create recipes – young workers who are every 15 minutes to carry out your orders, deal with your channels, applications, profiles, etc. You can connect to the channel, so if you has authorized a new application in Facebook, Twitter or any other social network. Recipes may contain ingredients, mostly variable data, which are extracted from the channels, for example, from Instagram hashtag or a fixed link of the post to Facebook.
Recipes consist of two parts: Triggers and Actions. If the trigger is pulled, then there is triggered some action. For example, if you add a song to favorites on Spotify, IFTTT can put a song on Twitter. Or, if tomorrow will be cold snap, IFTTT can raise the thermostat in your home through the Nest.
IFTTT Recipes can deliver automate tasks for WooCommerce theme users
As we mentioned earlier, you need to connect the TV to activate IFTTT recipes. For example, WordPress – a channel that requires your credentials. For Facebook only need permission to use IFTTT. Channels related to Android or the IOS will request one of IFTTT application versions.
It may sound like something complicated, but do not let that fool you. The main purpose – to connect all the channels if they were not connected before. After you plug in the channel (WordPress, for example) to IFTTT, you do not have to repeat it again to some other recipe.
When it comes to the automation of tasks in WooCommerce themes the first thing people think about the automatic placing of posts in the social. networks, it is absolutely natural, because it is one of the most popular activities that occur after the publication of the post.
