In the February 23rd WorkFlowy webinar, we looked at task management using the Kanban Calendar. The Kanban Calendar is a mashup of the GTD-ish Ticker File, the Eisenhower Matrix and basic Kanban principles. Plus there’s a way to totally automate it with the “Forever Calendar“, linked to below.
Here’s the Kanban Calendar screencast we looked at (yours truly on the harmonica!): Continue reading “The Kanban Calendar for Tracking Tasks in WorkFlowy”

Yesterday’s webinar with Jesse Patel (WorkFlowy co-founder) was an exciting and informative one for anyone who’s been a WorkFlowy fan for… say, more than a week. WorkFlowy users put every question imaginable to Jesse as we talked about future development and WorkFlowy’s sustainability as a company. It was a huge highlight for tons of people. Oh – and there was a quick 5-minute “Kanban 101” presentation.
TIP: If you’d like to jump back and forth along the webinar timeline, just hit the YouTube logo bottom right. (Although you won’t see chat comments from WorkFlowy users).
I used “Random Line Picker” with the list of webinar attendees to do a lucky draw. I’ll be emailing Chris, Heather, Roger and Joe with a complimentary copy of my WorkFlowy book… and Łukasz who’ll be getting a complimentary WorkFlowy Academy 36+ screencast package – basically a lifetime subscription to all of the screencasts I’ll ever produce.
WorkFlowy Slack group
Birds of a feather flock together. There’s now a Slack group up and running for those of the WorkFlowy feather (Pssst!…there’s a 500-member limit).
Give a WorkFlowy piece of yourself
During the webinar I made a call to action for people to send me screencasts of how they use WorkFlowy – especially in your diverse professions. A shared WorkFlowy list/ template would also be incredibly valuable to other users 😉
In just 2 weeks from now I’ll be delving into task management and prioritization in WorkFlowy. That’s a massive one! I’ll keep you posted!
There was quite a turnout to the 1st WorkFlowy webinar of 2017 – just 2 weeks ago. Quite a crowd of WorkFlowy users who could not attend the live event were able to watch the replay. This meant that our Aussie friends didn’t have to be up at 3AM.
Go ahead and register for the January 26th webinar right away. It’s only 2 days away! Come and hang out with the WorkFlowy community – people from scores of countries across the globe. There’s a lively live chat you can participate in and get your questions and thoughts across.
What’s on the cards?
1. A brief show and tell of how the dead-easy Kanban organizational principles play out in WorkFlowy: it’s time to bring order to your projects’ chaos.
2. A Q&A with Jesse Patel, WorkFlowy co-founder! Show some love for his brilliant brainchild or bring a couple of your questions.

See you there!… and, once again…
Markdown fans know they can write anywhere using the simplest of Markdown syntax. Versatility and scalability are but 2 words that come to mind.
I want to woo you into writing in WorkFlowy – and away from your favorite Markdown editor. There’s all the reason in the world why and zero reasons why not. Just the fact that WorkFlowy is WorkFlowy should be enough… then there’s the ability to automate it all and shape WorkFlowy into your very own customized Markdown editor.
With WorkFlowy you really can have your cake and eat it. I’ve been eating Markdown cake for quite some time now. While not an exhaustive post on Markdown itself, this was a show and tell of how you can automate it all in WorkFlowy and get the best of both worlds: A Markdown and Markdown preview hybrid.

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…
Based on a very true story
… You grab some grapes from your refrigerator, intent on polishing them off. You also think to yourself, “I need to remember to buy more grapes the next time I visit the supermarket.” And then your biggest brainwave idea of the day hits you… “Aaaah! 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.

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!”
