It’s that time of year again. Snow has begun falling from the skies in places that are lucky enough to have moisture in the air, we’re all already tired of hearing Michael Buble songs playing on a loop, and some of us are getting in the spirit by wearing ugly Christmas sweaters everywhere we go.
To celebrate, Shortcut is highlighting twelve of our favorite integrations and partnerships. We hope you return every day to read these posts alongside your tinglers and fuzzles, your dafflers and wuzzles, and your delicious pot (or Beyond meat) roast.
Edit: Yes, we know that Christmas is over now, but the Michael Buble songs are still playing on loop and the ugly Christmas sweaters are still being worn, and honestly, why would we ever stop celebrating? We’re a company that likes joy, after all.
Technically, the actual twelve days of Christmas - the theme of this blog series - starts with Christmas Day and ends on January 5th, so we’re getting in just under the wire… let’s change the subject.
Our twelfth featured post is dedicated to all of our partnerships and integrations. Because no man is an island.
On the Twelfth and Final Day of Partnerships, Integrations, and Other Good Things, Shortcut brings to you: thanks and appreciation for all our partners and integrations, because great software works best when paired with other great software. After all, no man is an island. Of course we can’t be certain, but still, we feel fairly confident that when John Donne wrote this poem in the 17th century, he was foreshadowing the importance and joy of connecting Shortcut with your favorite apps and tools.
Hold on a second, before we continue, how are we at the twelfth post when there isn’t an eleventh one? Friends, we took a shortcut. Much easier to just write eleven than twelve. You know: work smarter, not harder and all that. But back to John Donne.
Siloes are the enemy; and thus, John Donne was practically predicting the importance of the ability to automate processes in order to focus on what’s important: building great software, which he also practically predicted. Because no app is an island.

We look forward to another year. So, happy, hopefully joyous New Year, and we hope to just play a small part in helping you accomplish all your goals in 2022.
