This is not my assignment submission, but a biz centric How To I recently published in regards to another free (up to a certain threshold) webapp automation tool w/ tons of possible uses.
Like IFTTT, Zapier can be a super help in many planning tasks.
I think Zapier's filtering functionality is particularly superior to IFTTT, but IFTTT is a little lower learning curve and is kinda more fun. Both support slightly different app sets and integrations.
Automate all the things! (sensibly, of course ; - )) Let bots do what they do best and put your planning effort into people things! : - )
