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 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 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.)

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.

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
