Productivity Apps

Productivity software is application software dedicated to producing information, such as documents, presentations, worksheets, databases, charts, graphs, digital paintings, electronic music and digital video. Most common programs and suites such as Microsoft Office and LibreOffice have their own topics. Office suites, which brought word processing, spreadsheet, and relational database programs to the desktop in the 1980s, are the core example of productivity software, but they can include communications software, personal information managers, groupware and log analysis software.

I am considering a small mass emailing to promote my new book. But I do not have the technology yet to validate who has opened the email and who has not.

I once use MailGun and found that had a great technology for that kind of validation.

Does anyone have suggestions about what other things are important when validating the response rates from a mass mailing?

I need to track:
- conversion rate of a purchase, based upon the number who saw the email
- I need to know who saw the email so I could consider sending it a second time to those who did not see it the first time

What else?

What tools exist? Free is better.

I am considering Zoho because of its ability to trace whether the email was opened.

Suggestions?

Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I am considering switching from using Mac's Contacts program to the FREE Edition of Zoho CRM

https://www.zoho.com/crm/comparison.html

What is the easiest way to port all contacts over to Zoho?

Also, I am considering
http://www.contactsjournal.com/

Are both pretty easy to migrate over to?

Thanks

I can't focus with my phone nagging me about the same text over and over again.  I like one notification and done.  Anyone have a fix for this?

I need a robust Contact Management for Mac with an integrated iPhone App so I can add/update/delete records from my iPhone.

I suppose a Web interface is okay instead of a Mac program, but we'll see that the choices are...

Thanks.

About 18 months ago I researched the difference between the online version and the desktop versions of QuickBooks.

It became apparent that the online version is a very scaled down subset of the desktop product,

I am wonder has there been any chance since?

I have a customer who has a really old version of QB , I think 2006, he is buying a new Laptop, latest version of MS Office, etc,  I thought that the online version might suit him as he spends a lot of time out off the office as he is a small builder. He spends a day in the office per week, the rest of the time he is on site managing small construction jobs, it might be useful for him to be able to access his QB quotes, ices, etc. Or to generate invoices while off site.

Nore, he is based in Ireland, and ideally the Onlive version would work for local taxes (Revenue, VAT, etc.)

Thanks,
Robbie

I do not have an account yet. Where do I sign up?

I also have an iPhone 7. Once I register, do I download the app and just log in?

I need to share my desktop for a presentation, so hopefully, WhatsApp supports screen sharing, like Skype. I have a Mac and want to present a Powerpoint Presentation running in Windows 7 on Parallels.

For this to work, can I install WhatsApp on my Mac? Then, load Parallels, Windows and Powerpoint?

Or, do I need to install WhatsApp on Windows?

I have an OnePlus 5 running the latest Android 7, stock (not rooted). How on earth do I set Sunday as the first day of the week such that Google Calendar, Inbox and Keep all use Sunday as the start of the week.

Thanks in advance.

I know people who travel internationally quite often, and they need to:

1) select the countries of interest
2) view a combined calendar of holidays

I hope this exists.

Thanks

Someone shares a Google calendar, and I need to be able to view it. I'd like to see it as a calendar in my Android Calendar app, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do it. The only things I can find online are explanations of how to view different calendars in my own account(s), or to use the "Google Calendar App". But not to add an iCal link into the regular calendar application.

Any suggestions? (You'd think you could do this, given that Android IS a Google product.)

Important Lessons on Recovering from Petya

Important Lessons on Recovering from Petya

In their most recent webinar, Skyport Systems explores ways to isolate and protect critical databases to keep the core of your company safe from harm.

I work in the automobile industry and we have a need to be able to track issues with our vehicles as they progress thru the assembly line. Our cars are very customized and in that customization process sometimes issues arise, such as cut wires, modules not seated correctly etc. We see a variety of issues and it would be nice to have a software program to log the issues (warning lights, problem description etc) along with what the resolution was. I would also like for this program to be easy enough to be used by a non-technical person (such as a mechanic) to be able to look up issues they are seeing and what we have done in the past to correct it.

Does anyone have any suggestions for programs that may be able to fill this need without breaking the bank?

Thanks guys!

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.

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

Anyone know a program or Dialing system for making interviews over phone.
Like a system or program that you can make interview questions flows easy. Then save the statistics for later review or send them to a partner.  
Either you have a interview system than a Dialer separated they don't need to be combine into one.
