New IFTTT Capabilities for Evernote
I have always found using IFTTT to send things into Evernote useful. I currently have all Starred Gmail's, Saved Reddit posts, Archived posts in Pocket, and more all flow into Evernote, thanks to IFTTT.com
When my wife showed me Trello, I found Evernote and IFTTT didn't work together quite as well as I hoped.
If you haven't checked out Trello,it is a more visual version kind of Evernote. It is great for doing some kinds of project management. I do not actually use it, but I could see myself using it for a future project.
One drawback when I looked at Trello was it didn't have a Web Clipper. You couldn't just save a web page to Trello.
I had the bright idea of capturing the web page to Evernote, and then have IFTTT to move the post from Evernote to Trello.
Alas, I had never looked at the Triggers IFTTT supported for Evernote. It didn't have one to take a new note and copy it to another service.
Now good news. Thursday IFTTT announced two new triggers to Evernote. New Note in Notebook and, New Note with Specific Tag.
I immediately thought of my problem I'd had with Trello, and apparently, so did Trello.
There are many things you can do with these triggers. I haven't played with it much yet, but I could see having a free blog at Blogger where you can post Notes created in Evernote to blogger.
IFTTT's blog entry on this suggested similar things.
