What are your morning screen-views like? What is in your digital tool-belt?
My office desk includes a laptop dock with a nice, wide Samsung screen tethered to it. Two printers, one digital and one 4-in-1 inkjet and a reassuring external hard-drive are in this line-up as well.. Speakers, keyboard, phone and tablet, active-files holder and we’re set.
The first 10 minutes of online. I work mostly in Google Chrome and Firefox browsers with numerous others loaded to test webpages in various environments. Gmail and Outlook open up but hold no surprises because they’re both synced to the smart phone and tablet.
Hootsuite is the newest tool. Tweetdeck served well for a time but I find now that Hootsuite handles the multiple client social media accounts we maintain, very well. The scheduling feature was a big draw. Soon the Mozy logo pops up to notify me that this morning’s back-up of content is complete. Every day it is scheduled to work in the background and has been a life-saver several times when things went sideways.
Google Calender is always open and here we organize the business and our life schedules. Maureen and I share this calendar so we don’t have to plan work-schedules over dinner. Daytime texting clears up any discrepancies and provides a great spontaneous link. I know her schedule the moment she adds a meeting or out-of-town work event and similarly, she knows mine. Active client events, deadlines etc are also on here. Each color coded and updated regularly.
Getting calls from people unsuccessfully trying to connect with me.com email addresses this week. Apparently not everyone’s me.com email is going through -we tested a few today and they bounced, with enthusiasm! :)
