    s easy to start taking them for granted too So in the spirit of Thanksgiving which is this weekend here in Canada and next month with our friends in the US as well as some feelings stirred up by Steve Jobs untimely passing I felt like it would be a good time to show some appreciation I ve been really fortunate to have such a great team that starts with my wife and business partner and carries itself through to our admin and development teams I really didn t feel like I took them for granted but in the past couple weeks it s become a lot more obvious that the real answer is I don t mean to take them for granted Sherice my wife I realize sometimes I ve expected help from her without really valuing it the way I should she s the best partner in the world The rest of the team To build the products we have and meet the needs of our custom development clients well let s just say I put them through a lot of challenges and make demands on their abilities I m never happy just making something work it s got to be just right logic functionality user friendliness aesthetics etc so there s a a lot of research tweaking talking and more tweaking They don t complain though and often they are excited about the challenges that come from what we do together just like me what more could I ask for The Unsung Hero There s also an important member of our team that never really gets the appreciation deserved and by now you probably see where I m going with this activeCollab better known as The Dashboard in our day to day conversations or Dash for short not quite as creative and original a name that I hope you ve come up with Dash is in the office working 24 hours a day 7 days a week always ready to jump into whatever project any one of our team wants her to focus on oftentimes multiple projects at once pulled in many different directions but never complaining She s got a great memory so I can be sure that even if I forget something I ll be reminded or have access to her information on anything when I need it When Dash first joined our team our workflow was quite different very little was systematized yes that IS a word Everything was in someone s head and not easily accessible at all and most things we did were done differently each time because of that if they even got done because no one s memory was as good as Dash s Sure Dash and I have had our differences but I ve come around to her way of thinking and she s learned some new things along the way both from my instruction and from others who have invested the time in her and for that I m very thankful Enough with the story you get it activeCollab truly is the MVP on our team not to undercut anyone else s value we all know we d be lost without her Tracking projects tasks time people it s no small feat and we all count on activeCollab day in and day out to be there for us What s better than some appreciation More of the same This weekend I m making you all honorary Canadians eh I d like you to take some time to think about how thankful you are and finish this sentence for me I love activeCollab because OR just tell me what you love about activeCollab in your own words why not write your own blog post tweet or status update about it and post a link here in the comments below For those of you in the US you ll be thankful ahead of schedule BONUS Post your I love activeCollab thoughts by October 31st Extended and you ll be entered to win a free Rock Your Workflow session we ll choose a random winner by this time next week I ll start things off I love activeCollab because it s given me the opportunity to find what I love to do and do it with a great team and meet some amazing clients from around the world using it to collaborate on interesting projects and to help them do what they do even better and easier I love activeCollab because it s a great foundation to manage my projects but I m not limited to built in features I can use 3rd party modules to expand the features or build my own Thanks to Appsmagnet USwebstyle activeCollabmod and all my colleagues that are part of the developers program and to all of you who provide us with feedback and suggestions to improve our products I love activeCollab because of the Modern theme Thanks Leon If it wasn t for you I m not sure I could spend the whole day looking at my work and I m sure Dash appreciates it And last but most certainly not least I love activeCollab because ActiveLabs wouldn t exist if we didn t come across aC years ago and start to put it to work in our own business so a BIG thanks to Ilija Goran and the whole A51 team for building the foundation of such a great tool and for putting up with all of us who bombard you with support requests ideas and questions in the forums and email everyday Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to everyone I hope you have a great rest of your weekend Nathan P S Don t forget to share your own I love activeCollab stories in the comments Our way of saying

too BTW Don t forget to tell your team family and friends how much they mean to you too Categories Blog 5 What s in a name Last week we talked about the dreaded question Am I using it right I suggested that as activeCollab users we forget about the right way and seek to find the way that works for us One major roadblock I often see when talking with people is that it s easy to get hung up on the names of features and miss out on the benefits of the function This week s tip Forget about the names Focus on what each function can do for you and your team Here s what I mean What comes to mind when you hear the word Ticket It depends on who you ask The concept of Tickets is a popular one in the Customer Support world and because of this a lot of activeCollab users can be confused about the value of or even dismiss Tickets altogether Most of us have some sort of experience with Tickets The first thing that may come to mind is Trouble Tickets but what if we removed the name of this feature for just a few minutes and reviewed the functions for what they bring to the table Could you and your team or clients approach these differently With each of our new nameless mystery objects we can 1 Start with a main body area to post content i e questions copy attachments notes links images etc 2 Associate this mystery object to a category milestone due date 3 Assign a person or multiple persons one of them being ultimately responsible And they will get an email notification when they are assigned 4 Subscribe people for future updates and notifications even if they aren t assigned to it great for monitoring progress 5 Reply to the email notifications to send in feedback attachments or give approval on the content of the notifications and it will be added to the running commentary on the thread 6 Easily get back to the main content and review the history of work and comments related to this mystery object right from an email notification link 7 On top of all this add a related task for ourselves or someone else and set a due date with the same great email notifications and automated reminders x days from the due date 8 Mark it as completed and it will be automatically be available in an archive for future reference 9 Not only this but you could have an unlimited number of these objects as part of a larger object called a Project 10 Ok I may have gotten carried away but there s more and I m sure you could come up with some of your own too Sooo do you think you could put a feature like this to use Now are we seeing the the same limitations as we did when we just thought of these as Tickets Are your team or clients seeing limitations based on the names of features like Tickets Milestones Tasks even Projects Did you know that getting past this could be as easy as renaming it with a Localization file What s a Localization file Here s another great example the Localization file s purpose is to support multiple languages i e German Spanish Dutch etc But if we don t get hung up on the original purpose we can leverage the value of the feature After all aren t we really talking about language anyway It s about getting your activeCollab installation speaking your language that makes it most usable Take some time to think if naming alone may be holding you back Could Requests be a better name for Tickets in your environment It was for one of our clients What about any of these Subprojects Articles Missions Campaigns or insert your ideas here How about you Do you need to find a new name for Tickets OR just a new perspective so you can jump in and use it differently Apply the same principles to Projects Milestones Pages and Tasks too I hope this inspires you to ignore the names of features and focus on the function With activeCollab there are so many possibilities to create a system that is perfect for the way you want to work these suggestions are just the beginning If you need help with a new perspective or optimizing for your needs I d be happy to help you more in a Rock Your Workflow session or three BACK TO SCHOOL BONUS For all my fellow students of life and perpetual learners We re offering a Rock Your Workflow special right now in the spirit of Back to School Just enter the promo code BACK2WORKFLOWSCHOOL and you ll get 20 off on Rock Your Workflows and anything else in your cart too Categories Blog 2 Am I Using it Right Let s face it we ve all asked ourselves this question at some point in time in any activity especially when it s seeming harder than we thought Maybe it s because we thought it should be easier Maybe it s just a remnant feeling from growing up in a school system that taught us there was really only one right way to do something Whatever the source it s looming there in the back of our minds nagging us like the buy now screen in some trial software This is often one of the key questions I get during our Rock Your Workflow sessions and I m not surprised at all because this question itself inspires everyone in different ways There seem to be two categories of people who respond to this question quite differently 1 The push harder group For some of us this question becomes a quest to continue to improve our workflow and seek out anything that will potentially help on that quest We might own every single 3rd party module we can get our hands on or we ve personally customized our activeCollab installation until it s almost unrecognizable from its original form I d say for this group that burning question helps to fuel our improvement We have turned this question into a positive for ourselves and that s a great feeling 2 The walking on eggshells group There s another group of us out there too those who can be held back by this confidence shaking question Am I using it right This group is walking on eggshells with every step of using activeCollab or anything we use because MAYBE the way we are using it is not the best way We re paralyzed by the thought that there is only one way to get it right But for this group I believe that activeCollab can help liberate us from the only one way to do things mindset that we may have been taught Sure you ll find better ways to do things than others and maybe it was intended to be used differently than you are using it but that s not what matters right now The truth is we all probably have a bit of both approaches in us So Regardless of how you react to Am I using it right the most important question is What works for you and your team The raw unadulterated value of activeCollab and why I feel that it s often a popular choice for those moving from a more rigid system yes I ll say it Basecamp is because the reality is one size or shape doesn t fit all Many get to a point where working around the system they are using or with someone else s mindset becomes unproductive and they now want to begin to shape things to fit their needs more Sure they also often make the change because they are paying 150 per month and having those limitations starts to eat at them When working with activeCollab keep in mind that YOU are in control how do YOU want things used Even if it s not the initial purpose of the feature does a work around help YOU and YOUR team Make that part of your workflow and teach your team to use the system that way In the next few weeks I ll share some more on this topic Up Next how a simple language feature can help your thinking and your workflow Stay tuned for more Also if you haven t already checked out the free article 7 Tips to make them love activeCollab why not download it now Here s what some others are saying about the tips Keep up the good work I m looking forward to reading about new stuff for activeCollab from you Steven via email I hadn t even looked at themes Installed the Modern theme it makes a big difference drewm via Twitter I hope this inspires you to break through the question of Am I doing this right and find your own right way of using it And then just keep making it more right for you as you go If you need help with a new perspective or optimizing for your needs we re happy to help you in a Rock Your Workflow session or three Nathan ActiveLabs P S Are you following us on Facebook or Twitter If not we d love to hear from you ask a question start a discussion or just say hi If you ve invested in our products or if you are just keeping up to date on what we are doing we d love to hear from you Categories Blog 1 7 Tips to Getting the Thumbs Up from your Clients and Team in activeCollab A K A Silence the Haters Get Everyone else Excited It seems like everyday we re talking with someone who s getting started with activeCollab or asking about how they can get their team interested in using it more To help you with this goal we ve put together this list of tips inspired by our personal experience and conversations with other activeCollab users around the world who have shared their challenges First step get yourself ready Before we get started take a few seconds and open up your mind to some new possibilities if you are trying AC for the first time forget your past experience with other systems and if you ve been at this for a while already don t let the past challenges cloud your mind while you read Open up to the possibilities and see how you can look at these tips with fresh eyes Also keep your users in mind they may not all be just like you OMG I hope not that would be quite the one dimensional team so what do they need how would these tips help them and which tips apply to the different users in your sphere 1 Name that Puppy How sad is it when you call your new puppy puppy Give your activeCollab a new friendly name that everyone can use to refer to it so they know what to call it and they can feel a part of something great instead of just having some productivity tool forced on them Added bonus now the focus is on this great tool you have called and not some great tool someone else created Keep in mind this name needs to work for Team Clients and Vendors or whoever you may include in the future A name ensures everyone is talking about the same thing and it also relays that this is something more permanent not just another thing we are trying Examples HQ Projects Dashboard these
