Restore IFTTT applets

Since november IFTTT limits free users to 3 custom applets. More info on ifttt.com https://help.ifttt.com/hc/en-us/articles/360055682873-What-happens-if-I-do-not-upgrade-to-IFTTT-Pro- Today I did a checkup on my applets and noticed that 3 very old applets were left. My most used applets are in the archive. Time to restore these.

First I archived the custom applets to make room for the restore. To archive an applet open it and click on the settings. At the bottom there is an Archive button. Now I have room for 3 custom applets.

Open your archive (https://ifttt.com/archive) and click the applet(s) to restore. A click is all that’s needed to restore an applet from the archive – as long as you’ve got the space. Remember free users are limited to 3 custom applets.

After the restore you need to connect (activate) the applet. On the home page (https://ifttt.com/home) open the applet by clicking it. Now click on Connect and the switch animation will flick to connected. – done

Tip for free users: browse the library (https://ifttt.com/explore) on IFTTT and activate common applets from there, they will not count to your limit of 3. I’m using lots of different applets that do the same – send rss items to pocket – here are some of them:

Working in a DevOps team is the best thing that happened to me. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
