Get the most out of Box with these 5 IFTTT recipes
Learn how you can make the most out of Box with IFTTT recipes or Dropbox for that matter. As you know by now, IFTTT is one of my favorite services on the internet. IFTTT, which stands for “If this then that”, automates certain online activities so that you don’t have to take the pain.
I am pretty sure you at least have a Box or Dropbox account. If you don’t, go create one and start saving your files in the cloud. It doesn’t harm to get a Box account with 50GB space, even if you decide not to use it for now. If you have one, you know the importance of cloud – accessibility of the files anywhere, anytime, right. But what you don’t know probably is that you can save some other files in Box account – like Instagram photos you like or the photos you are tagged on Facebook etc.
With the following IFTTT recipes you can do even more and get the most out of your Box account besides just saving files from your Desktop.
Start using Box as an online repository for everything you do online using IFTTT recipes.
