Google+

Getting started with Google+

The above module lets you import public posts (activities) from your profile or someone else´s profile on Google+. The Watch activities trigger distinguishes 6 types of posts:

  • status (a text post)
  • article (a post with a link to an article)
  • event
  • photo (a post with a photo)
  • album (a post with an album)
  • video (a post with a link to a video).

Connecting the Google+ service to Integromat

To use the above module, you need to connect your Google account to Integromat. If you do not have a Google account yet, you can create one here.

To connect your Google account to Integromat, follow the general instructions for Connecting to services. Integromat will redirect you to the Google website where you will be prompted to grant Integromat access to your account:

Here, allow access by clicking the Allow button. Afterwards, you will be redirected back to the Integromat administration page. Now, you can continue creating your scenario.

Possible problems

Some information from Google+ is missing

Unfortunately, Google does not provide other applications with the information that is otherwise available via the standard web user interface. For example, you can only import the name and description of an event, and not the start and end date or the location. In the case of an album, you can download only the album name and link, but you cannot download any photo from the album.

The Watch activities trigger did not download a post (an activity)

Integromat can only import posts that are public. When publishing a post, the To whom option must be set to Public to make the post accessible also to Integromat.
