It has been brought to my attention this community has lost it's previous momentum and levels of engagement. This is something that needs to be rectified immediately due to the quality level of the content and community members we have here. With this in mind I am implementing some new community guidelines:

1. This will return to being an approval-required community for membership (sorry spammers).

2. Link only posts are discouraged. Content should encourage discourse not just redirect members away from the community. Repeated posting of link only posts without comments in the posting will be considered spam.

3. Non-productivity spam will be removed. Repeat offenders will be shown the door.

4. The list of sections will be revised to the following:

Tools - All physical and digital productivity tool related posts

Techniques - Focus on productivity methods regardless of tool

Discussions - General productivity discussions and questions

Member Blogs - Productivity posts and links from member blogs

Canned Spam - Productivity related spam

Polls and Surveys

Productivity Showcase - Glimpses into our personal productivity systems

These guidelines are not to discourage participation or to implement draconian controls over the group. I hope that combining these changes with increased participation and contribution of our members we can bring the spark back to this group.

Has anyone played with Google's new Spingboard product (great name, right?) I haven't been accepted to the beta. With search across Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Drive, groups for your enterprise / team it looks promising!

Alternatively is anyone using Cloudo for these same things + more integrations?

Here's a simple way to create a trickle down #todo list using #Wunderlist. It helps you determine what you must to do today to reach the goals of tomorrow!
I appreciate the simple, clean interface of Wunderlist. Here's one way to organize tasks for both daily activities and long term goals!

Wunderlist won't allow me to rename a folder or to delete it so I might replace it with another. Result: I can't adopt the trickle down system! 😯😕😬

I'm particularly interested in getting this community's thoughts on the future of collaboration & the knowledge sharing economy. Some of Kifi's thinking is in the piece attached.
We are learning how much companies and individuals benefit when they are generous with what they know. If Silicon Valley doesn’t take a…

Because there are so many apps like Trello, Gmail Workflowy, QUIP and even Evernote that use custom urls, it stands to reason that they technically could all be linked to each other. What do you think?

I also use #Raindrop .io in my everyday productivity and I love it (waiting patiently for notes) but I use it for my graphic design business. Strictly for online bookmarking, #Start.Me is the king

I have not tried it, but seems nice enough to recommend.
Turn your to do list into a work plan with Outplanr, and see what your team is doing in real-time. A team and project planner which will help you balance your work-life and keep your team motivated.

Looks interesting Hildgerd, thanks for the link!  I wonder what the colored bars for each person are, work category?

TIP:
Use Unicode characters for your tags. You can fit more tags into tasks and organize them better.

Microsoft is coming out with a new app around groups and planning projects. Appears to be similar to Trello, but with the direct microsoft tie-in it seems like it will be adopted more easily.

New note taking app. Simple now to begin with, but it looks like a start.
A web based application that aims to centralize information about a vast number of subjects from around the web and from it's own community. There are two strands to this project, community and private content.

Team #Memit  has been busy!  That's nice to see.  They've been kind of quiet, but apparently busy in the background.  :)

What are your thoughts on Toodledo?

I had been using Toodledo for a long time, until I realized it was cutting text pieces from notes/descriptions some times. Because no other complained about it, I think it's a problem with my language (greek). So I left it. Except that, Toodledo is great.

A long commute by car need not be listening to rambling DJ's or your worn out CD collection.  Utilise the text to voice functionality
on your phone to enjoy a book or two!  Here are a few apps to get started!
For commuting, there is an option beyond radio stations with a caffeine high rambling DJ or your threadbare mix tape - listen to any book of your choice!

+Jack Lockwood #Onetastic does. And I just now tried the other one - both a template and a notebook, and both seem to be just fine.

This app seems good, web based. I like the clipper, doesn't seem to be any smartphone app, though. It is not free, so perhaps it will stay some years.
