I am currently grading exams (using a spreadsheet), and beeminding the total number of exams graded so far. This number is given by the value of a cell in my spreadsheet, which is in my Dropbox. So far, I’ve been entering the data manually, but would love to automate it.
Has anyone ever automated the beeminding of a spreadsheet cell value?
In an ideal world, I would use an IFTTT recipe along the lines of: IF the spreadsheet is updated in Dropbox THEN send the value of cell A3 to Beeminder. But it doesn’t look like IFTTT can do that. I would also be happy with a solution which checks the value of the cell on a regular basis (e.g. once an hour).
I’m using several computers for this with a variety of OSs, so I’d like to avoid writing a shell script.
Any pointers would be appreciated!
