Making lists and checking them twice
At this time of year we're making lists (and checking them twice) in both our personal and professional lives: things we need to do at work before the end of the term, presents we still need to buy or shopping lists for the festive period - and the lists go on...
So we thought it a good time to revisit our posts on Google Keep. Keep is a fantastic note-making app (along the same lines as Sticky Notes, Evernote etc) which you can add lists, photos and handwritten annotations to - and then in true Google style, whichever device or computer you are using, you have access to all of them. So making a shopping list in your lunch hour at work means it comes with you to Tesco in the evening. Making a to-do list for the last few days of term whilst sitting in front of the tv means you can log in to your PC tomorrow and have the list in front of you. Really handy, and so simple to use.
It's incredibly simple but can also be supercharged - Docs and Slides now have a 'Keep Notepad' under the 'tools' drop-down menu so you can see your notes within Docs and Slides. Coupled with the ability to tag your notes and colour code them, we are finding new ways of using Keep all the time.
For this time of year though, we love it as a simple to-do list maker. There's nothing more satisfying than being able to tick things off a list!
All of our posts on Google Keep, including training videos on how to use it, can be found here, covering everything from the simple to the supercharged.
Now, where did I put that shopping list.....
