Would an IFTTT sub-section in the FingBox section be worthwhile?

I'm thinking to promote the use of the box's capabilities via IFTTT to trigger alerts or smart home interactions with suitable services/devices, and also perhaps somewhere for people to request, suggest or introduce new ways to have the box work or give alerts.

At the moment it seems to be a rather hidden but powerful aspect of the FingBox that could do with more promotion and advertising as having the box trigger alerts or actions depending on things happening really gives a whole new side to the device.

    hey @DarrenHill - would you like to submit this as a poll? 
    This way people can vote on it and we'll have some good results. 
    The issue with starting new sub-categories if they are not used daily is that the information becomes hidden since people may not navigate to that area.
    If you submit as a poll we could get a good idea of how many people are interested in this. 
    In general, would be good to have 2-3 posts/discussions a day in that sub-category.
    Thank you

    No idea how to do that, and to be honest this forum set-up is not as user friendly as others for such things, at least as far as I can see as a user.


    No objection to  poll, but also no idea on how to do that.

    Hi @DarrenHill
    Yes I understand that this forum set-up has some limitations. We're trying to show/prove value of Fing Community which we are doing and then we can get some improvements on UX/design. I'm hoping that for 2020. There are other limitations but perhaps we can start a new thread on it. 

    Here is how you can start up a poll -> 
    You have option to either start a discussion, ask a question or add a new poll.
    Here's how.

    Just sending you a DM as well now too.
    Cheers
