IFTTT Creations Wiki

A collection of community created IFTTT applets. This post is a wiki so please feel free to add your own creations to the table below. This is intended to house only applets that could not be created by users with the standard triggers & actions in IFTTT (i.e require the use of IFTTT Platform).

Note that these applets are provided by members of the community who often have shared the source code in the linked threads for each wiki entry below. You use these applets at your own risk with no guarantee of support from the author. If you are unsure about what an applet is doing then it is always wise to create your own.

Round Up Fully Rounded Multiplier Multiplies the spare change from a transaction, and rounds that to keep your balance to whole £1’s.
e.g, Spend £1.80 - gives 20p Change x 2 = 40p, £1.80 + £0.40 = £2.20, and so adds £0.80 to round to a whole £3.

Great thread, thanks for making it it!

There are loads of great suggestions for Plus specific IFTTT suggestions too, using Google Sheets. Not sure if that’s worth editing into the table or not, or maybe a separate post.

I suppose they’ll be more “here’s how you can do… [thing]” rather than a specific integration.

Appreciate the mention, I have 4 active published connections. :slight_smile:

I thought about having a “Requests” or “Future ideas” table too but thought it might get messy.

As you say the trouble with sheets integrations being how everyone’s sheet will differ in format. If it’s based on the actual “Monzo Transactions” sheet then that can 100% go in here.

Added the extra 2 :slight_smile:

I only initially added applets that had been shared on the community.

these are my favourites that get used on a regular basis (not my own):

and one (that I do not use on a regular basis…) is putting away savings when I use Strava

These are in there already:

Sadly I don’t know who @pmallam is as a community user so I can’t credit them.

This is a Monzo applet so wouldn’t live in this wiki but you’ve just reminded me that there was some discussion about 1p/10m being too high for savings in the past. I’m going to go dig out that conversation and make some variants.

Withdraw savings when spending in a category

I really like these but need one for Shopping category I can’t seem to find it but would love to learn how to create it myself? Does anyone know if @pmallam is reachable?

No worries I’ll make one a bit later and put some instructions together.

That would be awesome thanks. Do you need to knowledge of javascript to specify categories?

It’s actually TypeScript but no you don’t need much knowledge of JavaScript per se; I have basically none. But previous coding experience does help with the Google foo to work out the right syntax.

Usually there’s only 3-5 lines worth of code so it’s not overly complex but you need to know what you’re trying to do. I’ll wrote the instructions in such a way that you could replicate them for any category, especially since people now have custom categories it might be useful for others.


I’ve added the shopping applet above. I’m halfway through the explanation, just going to have some food then I’ll post it and tag you in @Serialswitcher

Thanks @swok1080 that’s not quite was I was after though, unles you’re still working on it?
As with the others I need to redeem the money based on the assigned category not a specific merchant and amount.

Wait until Swok comes back to explain - but the bit you can’t see is the filter code that runs in the background.

That’s the typescript bit mentioned - and it’s that code that will “select” the Shopping category to move money for.

Yep @BritishLibrary is correct; I did cover it in the explanation but basically I’ve made this a bit more flexible than the others in that you could limit to Shopping & a merchant & >£10 or just to Shopping. Leave the merchant blank and the amount as “0” and it will operate exactly the same as @pmallam’s.

Ah my mistake, jumped the gun when saw it gave me the option to specify. Thanks a lot @swok1080 will read the instructions later.
