How Can We Help?

You are here:

Your devices and services are connected to each other by Olisto. They respond to each other by means of conditions and some can share specific information. You can share this data in actions as variables. We will explain what the variables are for the available devices and services, and how they can be used in triggs. 

How to use variables

You can use variables in actions with a text area. In this area you can write your own text and combine this with dynamic realtime information from variables. Below the text area you see a small icon {…} to open the list with variables. Every variable of your connected devices and services can be selected, even if they are not in the current trigg.  
When you select a variable, you see a small icon in the text are. If a trigg is activated, at that moment this variable is replaced by realtime data. 

You can put variables in a notification or in a cel in Google Sheets.
