Not planned

Feature Request: IFTTT Service/Integration

Please consider being a service for IFTTT like the one existing currently with Zapier. It solves a good many challenges that increase users' productivity and allows crowdsourcing solutions not available for Zaps.

Personally, I am looking for better ways to create iOS reminders from Tasks and, perhaps, fixing the whole email integration thing.

    Hello Lawrence - 

    Insightly has current integrations with Zapier and Microsoft Flow for simple IFTTT. Further consider Workflow Automation webhooks capability if these can suit your needs: https://support.insight.ly/hc/en-us/articles/115004250428-What-are-webhooks-in-the-workflow-automation-

    Finally we are just rolled out AWS Lambda Functions: https://support.insight.ly/hc/en-us/articles/115011646507-What-is-a-Lambda-function-

    Hope this helps!

     

  • Indeed. If Workflow Automation was part of our subscription I would look into it. These third party options are far more cost effective for our small business.

    IFTTT is an actual business (IFTTT.com) similar to Zapier and also requires no real coding experience to setup triggered actions. Their integrations work with iCloud functions - for instance, create a reminder on iPhone when a new task is created and carry over specific data from that task. Zapier is working on iCloud/iDevice integration, but you know how that goes...

    Even better would be proper integration with iCloud or Exchange to synchronize the primary communication functions (mail, contacts, calendar, tasks, notes), but IFTTT can simulate that in the meantime. 

  • IFTTT would greatly benefit us also. It already works and links a lot of our processes together. We tried Zapier to link our tasks to Asana but we ended up with a load of tasks with only half the info we wanted.

    IFTTT would allow us to link, for example, our tasks in Insightly with Asana, and enable us to manage our whole organisation tasks, not just the sales related ones.

  • I also would like to see IFTTT.com integration

  • Throwing my hat in the ring for more IFTTT integration - Including IFTTT.com

  • So does this mean that IFTTT cannot be used to do anything with Insightly.

    And is there any possibility of this integration in the near future?

  • I would also agree with this. This is a no-brainer for modern cloud-based systems and is needed. I realize it may not play directly into the immediate business plan to make your system a bit more open - but as we all know, in the tech world those that are not open are sooner or later obsolete...

  • Hi All,

    You will see that this thread started a loooong time ago. You should not expect any reply from Insightly. I know this from other issues that we have had and continue to be a problem for us. 

    Insightly have their own plan and it seems largely un-influenced by what their customers actually tell them they want.

    Have a Great Christmas, and expect to see no IFTTT functionality this time next Christmas! 

    Go on, Inisightly, surprise us for once.

  • Surprise! Here's a reply. ;) I want to quickly address how we handle our feature requests from our Community members. 

    Our Insightly Community was launched in 2015 and we started taking Ideas & Suggestions from the beginning. We have never put a  limit on the number of requests our community members can have. And that still holds true today. This is why you will find some threads that were started a loooong time ago. We simply cannot get to every single request, but rest assured, we read all of them.

    Customer feedback has driven many of the changes and improvements to our products over the years and the votes help us determine which ones to monitor closely. But that is only 1 part of the puzzle. Our Product and Engineering teams also look at all the ideas and suggestions based on alignment with our product strategy and roadmap, the number of customers to benefit, and cost and time to develop it. All those things together are considered before we work on feature requests.

    That said, we don't have any plans to expand IFTTT capabilities in the near term. We're focused on bringing Custom Validation Rules, Calculated Fields, Quotations, Product Price Books and a handful of other improvements for our next release. 

    You can take advantage of our current integrations with Zapier and Microsoft Flow for simple IFTTT. You may also consider Workflow Automation webhooks and AWS Lambda Functions
