I would use this, too. Right now, I have an IFTTT trigger on the derailment email hitting my Gmail, which I use to send a "Post-Mortem my Beeminder Derail" task into my OmniFocus inbox, so that I remember to answer these questions:
- Why did I decide not to catch up on my emergency day?
- What part of those circumstances was under my control?
- What can I do now to get ahead on this goal?
I can't remember if I came up with these or found them elsewhere on the forum - probably the latter. Works fine with the Gmail channel, but I'd rather have it work with a Beeminder trigger directly.
