The Insane New Numerous Channel for IFTTT

We’re huge fans of IFTTT and have had a basic integration with them since day one—but until now it’s been pretty limited. Basically you could create a recipe that said “if something happens, then increment or update a number in Numerous”. Nice. Not thrilling, but nice. That just changed in a huge way.

The New Numerous Channel for IFTTT

We’ve just launched a massive update to the Numerous Channel for IFTTT, enabling a two-way, real-time bridge between their world of events and our world of numbers. What that means is that every app, device, and service that connects to Numerous now connects to IFTTT.

Numerous brings Apple Health, Tesla, SpaceX, and Google Analytics, Sheets, and Calendar into the IFTTT world. Numbers from all of those things and dozens more—including the seven new channels we launched last week—can trigger recipes. Plus, we've created Triggers for Numerous event countdowns so you can fire off a recipe before, at, or after a specified event. Crazy.

“OK, neat. But what does that mean to me?” you ask. Well, here are just a few examples of recipes you can now build:
