Your Business on AutoPilot: Potions for the Enterprise

With summer in full swing, you might be planning some vacation time away from the office. A recent study found that 42% of workers feel obligated to check their work email during vacation. If you’re lucky, you have coworkers who can cover tasks for you while you’re out. But did you know that you can program your Netvibes dashboard to do some of those digital tasks for you?


Netvibes’ Dashboard of Things makes it simple to automate digital activities from the dashboard. You pick the Trigger(s) and Action(s) to create a Potion, and your dashboard magically obeys. For an introduction to DoT, please visit our FAQ page.

Marketing Automation and the Dashboard of Things

Netvibes Potions allow you to automate a variety of digital tasks simply by picking the Triggers and Actions you want to happen. You can tackle everything from personal tasks (e.g., When I add a new photo on Instagram, email it to my mom and save it on Dropbox) to professional use cases in the enterprise.


Many marketing activities can also be automated using Netvibes’ Dashboard of Things. For example:

  • Real-time crisis alerts: When negative mentions of your brand increase in the media, email the PR team and text the CMO.



  • Automated tracking and reporting: When a new article is published that mentions your company, add it to Pocket to read later and compile the articles into an automatic weekly email report.



Netvibes’ CEO, Freddy Mini, and head of marketing, Kim Terca, recently discussed this topic with Shel Holtz for the FIR Podcast Network. Listen to the podcast recording below or visit the FIR website to hear more about how marketers and communications professionals can use the Dashboard of Things.
