Get Ready for Summer with Netvibes Potions

Summer is officially here! In the Northern Hemisphere, June 21 marks the first day of Summer 2015. While you’re busy enjoying the beach, grilling in the backyard, or planning your summer getaway, let your Netvibes dashboard help by automating some of the digital tasks on your plate.


Netvibes Potions make it simple to program your dashboard to act for you, automatically. You choose the trigger(s) that will activate the Potion, along with the action(s) that you want Netvibes to do, and your dashboard does the rest. That’s it!

Here are a few Summer Potion ideas to get you started:

Personal Potions:

  • Holiday greetings

    Share the holiday joy without lifting a finger on your vacation.

    On July 4, automatically post “Happy Independence Day, America!” on Twitter and Facebook, and publish a holiday message on your website using SSH.

  • Plant-sitting

    Enjoy your iced tea on the porch of your beach house without worrying if your plant is thirsty, too.


    When your Flower Power detects that your plant needs to be watered, automatically send a text message to your neighbor so they can swing by your house to take care of your plant.

Professional Potions:

  • Threat alert

    Stay on top of threats to your brand or industry, even while you’re at the beach!


    When a new article is tagged as a “Threat”, automatically receive a text message on your phone and a Pushbullet notification.

  • Topic watch

    Enjoy the great outdoors this summer, while still staying on top of the news that matter to you.


    When a new article is published on a specific topic, receive it by email and be alerted instantly with a PushBullet notification.

These are just a few ideas, but you can create your own custom Potion using any of our currently supported Ingredients. To get started, click here, and our wizard will walk you through the easy steps of creating your first Potion.
