Today we have added support for a new Ingredient in Netvibes Potions. You can now use Gmail as a Trigger or an Action in your Potions. Let’s see how it works.
Netvibes Potions allow you to automate actions and alerts from your dashboard by selecting the Trigger(s) and Action(s) you want to take place. For example: If a new article is published about MyCompany, then email me and share the link on Twitter. (To learn more about Potions, please visit our FAQ page).
Potion Triggers: Gmail (new!)
I receive an email
This Trigger fires every time your Gmail account receives a new email
Example Potion #1: When I receive a new Gmail message, then text me. Add this potion to your dashboard!
I star an email
This Trigger fires every time you “star” (mark as important) a message in Gmail
Example Potion #2: When I star a Gmail message, then post it on Tumblr. Add this potion to your dashboard!
As with most Netvibes Potion Ingredients, you can customize the properties of your Potion to do exactly what you want. Using Example Potion #1, let’s say you want to receive a text message only when your boss emails you. To do this, we need to define specific properties of the Potion–in this case, my boss’s email address.

- Press Coverage: Automatically share articles on social media with your followers
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.
As you get ready for vacation, here are some example Potions that can help you relax and ignore your email, but still be alerted immediately if anything important happens.

As modeling and simulation technologies evolve, is your organization leveraging maximum value from all of its data? Discover the latest innovations in 3D data, design, digital modeling and simulation at the 3DEXPERIENCE Modeling and Simulation Conference, to be held September 18-19, 2019 in Novi, Michigan, USA.
Join Dassault Systèmes and other industry leaders for two days of collaboration, sharing best practices and learning about the newest technologies for driving engineering and design decisions in an integrated modeling and simulation environment.
Registration for the September event is now open!
Whether you plan to attend the conference or you prefer to follow the latest modeling and simulation announcements from home, your customizable NETVIBES dashboard enables you to track any topic just by typing in a few keywords. For example, in the area of modeling and simulation, you could track “3D modeling” or “digital twin” technology. You can also drill down to find exactly what you want by using Boolean search terms. Using your Tracked Topic, NETVIBES will automatically generate a convenient reading list for you with all the articles that meet your search parameters—articles tailored to your interests.
Tracked Topics are also great for creating your own automated alerts and actions: simply customize a NETVIBES Potion from your dashboard. For example, maybe you want to be notified every time a new article is published with “digital twin” in the title, and then have your dashboard automatically share the link across social media channels.
As we look ahead to the 3DEXPERIENCE Modeling and Simulation Conference, here are a few design- and simulation-related feeds that you can add to your NETVIBES dashboard to stay on top of the news:
- Computer Modeling News – Science Daily
- Design Software News – engineering.com – “A global community for engineering minds to share stories and solve problems”
- Interesting Engineering – interestingengineering.com – “Interesting Engineering is a cutting edge, leading community designed for all lovers of engineering, technology and science“
- Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA Blog
- 3D Printing Industry – 3dprintingindustry.com – “3DPrinting news & information – industry reports, business directory, jobs board, and more”
