Embed Google Docs, Mind Maps, YouTube Videos, Evernote Notes and More in WorkFlowy


Sometimes serendipity runs its course – like the almost happenstance privilege I get to blog in this space… or stumbling upon JavaScript that powers a whole new subset of WorkFlowy use cases: the ability to embed web content from a variety of sources right into your outlines. I don’t understand the first thing about JavaScript (only how to copy-paste), so you’re in good company. Now let me show you a couple of gems I’ve been polishing.

Below you’ll see a handful of apps and services I was able to get to show up in WorkFlowy – each of which have highly practical potential. I’m positive that more than one will pique your interest… Continue reading “Embed Google Docs, Mind Maps, YouTube Videos, Evernote Notes and More in WorkFlowy”

One thing I’m positive about after having run the image display gauntlet: many may appreciate the current simplicity of WorkFlowy to a greater degree… and, may just decide to give this a go for limited use cases. Let’s give a quick show and tell of the what and howContinue reading “Get WorkFlowy Inline Images out of your System in 2016”
