'Use IFTTT and say, "trigger X"'

Hey all, i recently started using smartthings, and saw someone say using IFTTT + my echo dot was an option (see title). I only saw the post about email, and don't really get how to use an alexa command instead of an email. Could anyone help me out here? I'm incredibly new and inexperienced
@wiegerduck, I answered you with a video showing how to do it, but here's the high level idea:
1 - Your voice says "Alexa, trigger calculator"
2 - Alexa tells IFTTT to tell TRIGGERcmd to tell your computer to run calculator
3 - Your computer runs calculator
