Maybe you’ve never warmed to the idea of having a calendar of chronological dates in WorkFlowy because you’re put off by the idea of manually setting it up – One. List. At. A. Time. I used to have my own way of automating it all… but still, I wanted it to be simpler.

A WorkFlowy hero reached out to me by email a couple of months ago with a template of all the possible date/day combinations that exist from now until kingdom come. It’s actually a much smaller template than you’re thinking right now. A huge shout-out to Christiano Lima Santos from Brazil for sharing this genius solution. I’m kicking myself for not having thought of this. Continue reading “The Genius “Forever Calendar” Template – Never Manually Create Calendar Lists in WorkFlowy Again. Ever.”

The Physical Web: Connecting WorkFlowy Lists to Your Physical Environment

We’re going to be connecting WorkFlowy lists to physical objects using QR codes (Quick Response codes). So… imagine you’ve printed out the QR code below on a sticker and it’s right there, on your refrigerator door, just waiting to be scanned…

Let me put this on my WorkFlowy grocery list!” So you whip out your phone and scan the QR code on the door of your fridge – which then magically takes you to the WorkFlowy list you had in mind. Well, I told my daughter it was magic – but I have a feeling you’ll want to reproduce this dynamic, so I guess I’ll have to walk you through this hand-is-quicker-than-the-eye thing.

blog-book-button

Keyboard shortcuts really put the flow into WorkFlowy. Getting familiar with and wielding them is a must if you want to get comfortable hanging out in your lists. Using kbs’s is like hitting the “Skip Ad” button on Youtube videos… everything just flows so much better. Not using kbs’s is like moving into a new house and not unpacking your boxes. Do you really want to live out of boxes for the rest of your WorkFlowy life?

I’ve got some kbs challenges for you in several shared demo lists… see if you can shave a couple of seconds off my best (timed) efforts. The demo lists are identical to what you’ll see in each GIF. (By the way, you don’t need to add the lists to your account to tinker with them.) Continue reading “The WorkFlowy Keyboard Shortcut Challenge – Time Trials!”
