Stop disrupting your workflow to add new contacts to your address book. You’re too busy for the copy – paste – copy – paste – reformat, followed by 5 minutes trying to figure out what you were doing before you paused to update your contacts.
I utilize an arsenal resources to maximize productivity so when I saw a Lifehacker post titled, “WriteThat.name grabs contact info anywhere on the web,” I was intrigued.
Sign up with your email address and download the extension if you use Chrome. Copy any contact info you find online and paste it to the app. WriteThat.name reformats the material, helps you edit details and save the new contact with 1-click. The app syncs to your address book to permit automatic updates or you can review/approve changes before they are made. It’s like auto-pilot for your address book!
WriteThat.name also offers add-ons that synchronize with Salesforce, Outlook, and can even search your old emails for contacts. Still not convinced? Add me to your contacts with 1-click using the link below and send me a message. I’m happy to discuss my experience and answer your questions!
With thousands of apps at your fingertips it’s easy to become overwhelmed. Most people quickly realize they have no use for 9 out of 10 apps available in the marketplace. In this complex world of productivity tools, social media, reminders, and mobile access, each of us discovers a select group of apps that become a key component in our lives and life without them seems unbearable.
When you’re not scrolling through pictures of your ex on Facebook or begging friends to help harvest your farm, there is a wide selection of apps for business, productivity, and organization. It’s time to get down to business and there are different apps for different chaps, so my favorites won’t suit everyone but I encourage you to test them and share your own favorites below.
There are several other apps that help me get through the work day, but the aforementioned list should be part of everyone’s bag of tricks. Commit to using a couple of the apps on my list for the next week and let me know how it goes. Is there an app I need in my life? Let me know in the comments section below.
Landing in Chicago at 7:00 Monday morning on the red-eye from Las Vegas sounded like the worst idea in the world. Tack on a 90-minute rush hour taxi communte from O’Hare to the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown Chicago and one may think I was intentionally torturing myself. Fast forward to Monday afternoon and my travel nightmare seemed like a distant memory thanks to the buzz surrounding the Original Gourmet booth at McCormick Place for the NCA Sweets and Snacks Expo.
