How to post notification messages in Cliq using IFTTT?

IFTTT (If This Then That) is an integration that allows you to connect your favourite applications with Zoho Cliq. This integration is done through applets available in IFTTT which connect with Zoho Cliq. After connecting an applet, when an event happens in an application, a notification will be triggered in Zoho Cliq. 

Here's how integrating Cliq and IFTTT Works

Once IFTTT is integrated with Cliq, whenever the "if this condition"  is initiated the notification action will be triggered in Cliq. You can configure your trigger action notification in Cliq 1-1 Direct messages, Channels and Bots.
