[SOLVED] IFTTT ingredient problems

Hi, I was just trying to go through the tutorial about ifttt here https://community.spark.io/t/beginner-tutorial-ifttt-monitor-a-device-status-trigger/9406 and I got to the part in google drive where you put in the ingredients. My core is named Sparky its online and its 8:54 so I put {{spark}}|||{{Online}}|||{{8:50}} which is correct according to the tutorial. I have tried capatils, lower cases, spaces nothing has worked. Please help!
Thanks in advance!

You shouldn’t input anything. Those things between the curly brackets are variables. They have to have a certain name, or they won’t work. As soon as the action is triggered, those will be replaced by the relevant values. You can see the ingredients you can choose by clicking on the Erlenmeyer bottle as shown in the picture below:

which will look like this:

Let us know if you need any more help. Otherwise you can just use one of the example recipes that have this configured already :wink:
