Another lockdown……Another work from home day!

Slack App – https://slack.com/intl/en-au/

Again we are in another lockdown, stressful but necessary. Many of us are able to take our jobs home and work from our home offices or dining tables.

Lucky for us there is an abundance of technology to make our lives so much easier to communicate with customers, suppliers and fellow employees.

One of my favourite apps to use is Slack. Its easy to install on your computer and makes messaging with your co-workers effortless.

You can set up projects within the app and communicate within that particular project adding only the people involved so that your communications don’t get muddled up, which can often happen when writing emails back and forth.

You can have several separate conversations regarding different matters or include everyone in the one conversation if need be. You can share updates and other information to make project management and other work related matters run more smoothly.

Its definitely a favourite of mine and saves me so much time sifting through emails to find the right one to respond to. Check out the app in the Apple or Google play store. It downloads easily to your mobile or mobile tablet too. That way you can keep the communication going where ever you are. You can also create an account and link your devices. All in all its one awesome App.

Thank you again for reading my posts. I will highlight another of my favourite apps next Tuesday

Are you always forgetting your To-do list?

Let me show you an easy way to set reminders on your phone and never forget your to do list again!

Iphone Reminders List App

In today’s busy world there a bazillion tasks to do everyday. Pay the bills, make appointments, call a work colleague re meeting, take the kids to little league.

It can be very overwhelming and sometimes downright depressing! One App that I use constantly on my Iphone is the Reminders App. I am not sure if it comes standard with the Iphone, but its one of the best To-Do list apps I have every used!

Its simple to add a task, just press the + button and start typing, press enter to finish. You can customise each task to detail its importance and when and how you want to be reminded.

The best feature of this App is the fact you can make custom lists so you only have to-do tasks for certain areas of your life all in one list. For instance if you are organising a party you can add a list called Party List and note down all the tasks in that list. Or if you have a work project, you can make a list called Project Details and note down the tasks under there.

The lists are easy to call up, just simply press on the stack of lists and pick the one you want. You can tick to complete tasks and they will be crossed out so you know you have done this item. All in all after the tonnes of other to-do list Apps I have trialled, this one is the best, quickest and best of all its free! No subscription needed to use the full App.

Give it a try today and see how much better it is to keep yourself and your day organised!

Thank you very much for reading and have a wonderful day!
