Hi,

Does anyone have any tools that exports / backups your entire Trello account / boards.

I know the Business Class provides backup but it's one board at a time. I have over 70 boards so it's a little time consuming to backup each month.

Thank you in advance for your help.

I can use Photoshop CC to create a frame, but now I need to insert an image into it. How do I do this from an existing image file? Is there a way to make the frame adjust to the aspect ration of the image file?

Thanks

Hi, i've been using Trello a lot lately and i'm considering moving everything over from Evernote to Trello. Like many others on here, productivity and organisation are key to me.

While there is no right or wrong answer to my question(s), I would like to hear what other people's thoughts and setup are, in relation tot he following:

01 - when you have a list of items or tasks... how do you define whether you should add them as 'multiple cards on a list' or 'add all of the items as a checklist to one card' :-)

02 - has anyone else moved their notes from Evernote to Trello... how did you find the change?

03 - any regrets or dislikes with Trello

Thank you in advance for your help.

This should be very easy; but I am tired and my eyes are crossed from staring at code all day.

I have several hundred text files with line items similar to the following:

<some 4 digit number>-w
training-kiosk-wifi

I want to use sed to delete the "-w" were any occurrence of a number with "-w" at the end shows up.  But I do NOT want to remove every occurrence of "-w" because it would break the second string line, which I do not want to do.  The numbers are all 4 digits and range from 5000 through 9999

So, one file could look like this:

5000-w
training-kiosk-wifi

And another file could look like this:

9999-w
training-kiosk-wifi

I want to use sed to change those files to read like this:

5000
training-kiosk-wifi

9999
training-kiosk-wifi

Can someone help me with the correct regex parameter to use with sed to do this?

thank you in advance

Hi
I run a small business (very small..just myself and my wife) and am take a lead with 2 small charities.
I am looking for a system to help with the following when working from my office (desktop Win) and offsite (via web and iphone/ipad):
  • Email management
  • Task/project management
  • Calendars
  • Contacts
  • Information
  • Documents
I currently have a system that is lacking in several areas, and limits my productivity.
I am open to changing it, and would appreciate advice on what would be a good system that I should aim for.... ie apps for each device and system to integrate/synchronise between devices/apps
(NB I have attached a document I prepared to outline what I currently use for my system, and what the desired functionality is)

Hi - I am an independent IT consultant supporting many home users and small businesses. I am currently trying to organise the way i work, specifically with projects that come in and how to clock the time i spend on them.
Up until now i have been using a combination of Outlook tasks + and Excel spreadsheet to input time and matters + and app called Toggl which records time. I can never stick with one method however and often find myself falling back on my trusty analogue notepad as well to take notes and refer to them. I would love to find a cloud based app which would manage my tasks and time i clock in and out of them.
Does anyone have some recommendations that have worked for them?


Thanks

I am a developer and love Git. But I am writing a book and rely on Word. But Word files and Git are oil and water, since it can easily mangle the file and render it useless. Right?

How about using an RTF? Is that a format which works with source control?

I am sure a Notepad style of crude editor wold work, but I need some basic styling like font, bold, italics, etc.

What tool can I use on a Mac to write this book? I really want to be able to commit and push revisions and make my incremental changes viewable by me later.

Thanks.

I started having difficulty with PP14.5+Patch 1 after running CheckPPFolders.exe.  The difficulty came about when scanning documents, the scanning dialog would not pop up to scan the other side (which I've done hundreds of times previously), and that led to running the CheckPPFolders.exe.  Not sure it was the right move at this point.  Now, any time that I want to scan a document, I first select the folder for the scan to go to, which starts the process of UPDATING file 1 of XXX ... something that has never happened until about a week ago.

I have came across many cases that a old driver is the cause of issues in a workstation. there are vendors who offer to do a scan and update all outdated drivers. but some of them anti virus and malware detected them as dangerous. but finding the right drive may sometimes be time consuming. the wrong drive can prevent the computers from starting in some cases.

Question: Do you know of a trusted reliable program preferred if a technician edition is available so I can use it on more then one workstation? or any other quick solution?

Hello experts- just wanted to get opinions on the best course of action for scanning dozens of (physical) photos for a digital slideshow. My options are taking a photo of the photo with an iPhone 7 camera or using a multi function copier like a Toshiba 5000 series flat bed scanner (600x600 dpi). Which will produce the best resolution for a digital slide show?

Hi,

I am looking for Project / Task Management software that allows one "simple" function:

Create a project, and sub parts of that project... but only share certain parts of the project with various people.

For example, we usually have 10-20 projects on at any one time with various stakeholders:

- Project Manager (needs to be able to access all sections of the project)
- Developer (should only be able to access the Dev tasks of the project)
- Client (should only be able to access the Scope part of the project)

I have tried and tested many different applications and i am shocked that i can't find just one that provides this feature. I have contacted support for each of the following and every time the customer service team suggested creating a different project for each stakeholder which is not practical or efficient.

- dapulse: no
- trello: no
- asana: no
- basecamp: no

Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed.
