should be a way to have an ifttt message timeout (age out)
or possibly to use the action button to acknowledge and clear the ifttt message?
for instance, I display a text message as tagged/texted to ifttt - however this is transient message. It should only be displayed for maybe 30 minutes. (not looped forever) other ifttt uses I've planned are similarly transient. Can options/settings for this be added to the ifttt app/channel?
Absolutely! This is one of the major issues that makes IFTTT mostly useless at least for me.
LaMetric billed themselves as the desktop clock pebble... that is a time piece that could display messages/updates/notifications like the Pebble SmartWatch.
The problem is that the only way to get messages or notifications right now is to have that app as part of the scrolling apps, but I don't want the notification showing up every 10-15 seconds... I want the notification to appear, then maybe repeat 2 or 3 times and then go away.
I don't want the same notification running for hours on end until it's replaced by a new notification which then runs for potentially hours itself.
Agree entirely with Thomas and his list is perfect.
Adding more IFTTT config options and interoperability is like multiplying LaMetric's capabilities and usefulness x100, in my opinion.
Hey. bumping this thread, as I would really like some feedback about these ideas.
Great news, guys!
We have created new action – Display Notification to improve IFTTT support, which is available with new firmware 1.6.1.
With Display Notification you don't need to install any additional apps. You can configure notification sound as well as the priority of the
notifications. Such notification will be hidden from the display of LaMetric Time once the message is scrolled out.
Try it out!
Any movement on this?
