I thought I might start a topic to look at anything related to IFTTT integrations.
We already have a number of rules set up in our channel and you can find these via the ‘view details’ button on the SAVE homescreen.
The incentives of these are savings rules might be either positive, rewarding good behaviour or making you feel better, or ‘absolutory’ (how’s that for trying to avoid the term ‘negative’?), for disincentivising bad behaviour.
We’d love to know how you are using them and to see if we might add the rules to the list. If you create your own applet, do share it here so others might add it.
1. TfL rule "always on"
We added a ‘TfL’ rule to our default list at the beginning that saved £1 when you used public transport in the evening instead of cabs or driving.
Unfortunately, in practice this has proven difficult to track because of the way TfL authorises your card when you use it, but keeps this open all day to aggregate your travel and charge you a daily rate. Since they settle this around 3am each day, it means everyone was assumed to be touring our capital on the Night Bus, so triggered lots of savings.
We have removed this but it has stayed active for some early users, so it is still transferring savings and you are unable to remove it. We are fixing this from the system-end. If you’ve overpaid into savings you could consider it a ‘boost’ or simply transfer funds back to your current account.
2. Error connecting
A user has had trouble with access. We are looking into this issue to see what might affect it. If you’ve seen anything similar, let us know.
