Getting ifttt to add to RTM
If that headline made sense to you, then you’re in the right place :)
So I’ve come up with a way that creates a new RTM task for me whenever there is a new item in a particular RSS feed.
We create a ifttt recipe that:
- When there is a new item in the specified RSS feed.
- Will send me an email with a unique subject line.
- Our email program (GMail in my case) has a filter set to look for that unique subject line and then forward that email to our special RTM email address (see this page for help with the RTM email stuff).
I’ve used [RTMwithSOMEuniqueLETTERS] as my subject line so that nothing will accidentally happen.
