elijah's picture

Hosted by Mohammed Bashir of NetSquared West of Toronto.

There is a wide range of low-cost or free online tools available to nonprofits today, to help us communicate better with workers, volunteers and stakeholders, and work more efficiently. In this crowd-sourced session we demonstrated many of these tools, and shared tips and scenarios in which you might use them.

This was a great night of networking, connecting and inspiration.

132
00:22:11.160 --> 00:22:13.770
Mohammad Bashir: In this word, we are kind of

133
00:22:14.850 --> 00:22:17.970
Mohammad Bashir: Enclosed in our homes or we are going out by

134
00:22:19.080 --> 00:22:33.690

141
00:22:56.520 --> 00:23:09.990
Anne: I live in Florida. Now, I'm from Massachusetts. Originally, I'm a web designer and front end developer. And so, you know, doing the remote stuff is nothing new for me. I've been doing it for a long time.

142
00:23:11.610 --> 00:23:12.960
Anne: I used to teach

143
00:23:14.670 --> 00:23:23.880
Anne: And so I taught remotely. When I first moved here and I did not like it. We had tech technical issues. So I really

144
00:23:24.750 --> 00:23:38.250
Anne: Think you know, on the one hand, there are great things about remote stuff. And then there's the human element that just, you know, I think we have to evolve it more to recapture that

145
00:23:39.450 --> 00:23:41.010
That's been my experience.

146
00:23:42.270 --> 00:23:42.720

00:29:54.360 --> 00:29:54.570
Yeah.

207
00:29:56.220 --> 00:29:57.090
Jason Shim: I'm stuck on that one.

208
00:29:57.780 --> 00:29:59.130
Eli van der Giessen: For is a good, right. You just heard.

209
00:30:00.360 --> 00:30:00.660
Eli van der Giessen: That

210
00:30:01.560 --> 00:30:04.470
Eli van der Giessen: The, the noise cancelling when again.

211
00:30:04.800 --> 00:30:11.880
Jason Shim: crisper AI whether k for k RI s p.ai so it's it's noise cancelling is

212
00:30:13.020 --> 00:30:13.650
Jason Shim: Is quite good.

213
00:30:14.940 --> 00:30:16.530
Jason Shim: Even on top of Zoom's

214
00:30:17.850 --> 00:30:20.280
Eli van der Giessen: Awesome. Boom. Yeah. Lovely.

215
00:30:23.790 --> 00:30:26.790
Eli van der Giessen: So got a couple of names here, I see if you got Victoria.

216
00:30:27.960 --> 00:30:32.340
Eli van der Giessen: In the group. I think you're muted right now. But if you want to come off and do a quick intro. We'd love to hear from you.

217
00:30:33.450 --> 00:30:38.070
Ian Goldman: She just stepped out, put a message in the church is planning to come back.

218
00:30:38.370 --> 00:30:41.730
Eli van der Giessen: Oh, lovely. Thank you. Anyone else we've missed so far.

219
00:30:45.420 --> 00:30:47.070
Yeah, I think, is schema.

220
00:30:48.090 --> 00:31:03.060
Mohammad Bashir: Schema if you're comfortable you can stay on the audio, we can still find. So if you would like to share interviewed, introduce yourself and share your tools or if you want to share anything that will be great.

221
00:31:25.170 --> 00:31:26.070
Mohammad Bashir: I think Eric

222
00:31:29.490 --> 00:31:35.130
Mohammad Bashir: Had to go somewhere, so I miss maybe inequality in it can introduce themselves for

223
00:31:36.000 --> 00:31:40.320
Éric M. Beaulieu: Sure, no problem. So, I'm from eastern Canada from Quebec.

224
00:31:41.730 --> 00:31:48.300
Éric M. Beaulieu: I'm muting the nonprofit sector. I've worked, most of my career in the for profit sector in there.

225
00:31:48.870 --> 00:32:02.070
Éric M. Beaulieu: So now I'm involved a lot in that business transformation and on the nonprofit side I'm involved with that drink wise and the number of smaller the equivalent in Quebec, which is called he can't. Good. And then number of smaller organizations.

226
00:32:03.330 --> 00:32:09.030
Éric M. Beaulieu: In the nonprofit area with very diverse needs means and requirements.

227
00:32:12.600 --> 00:32:19.530
Mohammad Bashir: Yeah. Welcome, Eric, if you like to share anything which is helping you in the professional sector to move forward in this

228
00:32:20.550 --> 00:32:21.810
Mohammad Bashir: Is difficult times.

229
00:32:22.830 --> 00:32:26.550
Mohammad Bashir: any tools or you like to hit any story or something like that.

230
00:32:28.140 --> 00:32:46.980
Éric M. Beaulieu: Um, well, I'll be honest we I am listening, more than sharing a lot of information we've been using various tools. One of my main challenges which I believe I'm the only one online that we have this is finding software with interfaces in French.

231
00:32:48.120 --> 00:33:01.380
Éric M. Beaulieu: A lot of my collaborators unfortunately have struggled with English interfaces. So one of my big challenges with all these cool tools is finding them with French interfaces, there's

232
00:33:02.070 --> 00:33:16.200
Éric M. Beaulieu: Some options in Europe, but a lot of them use very European European French which is difficult. It's almost like a, you know, technical terms are quite different between North America and Europe. Sometimes, and that's what, that's a struggle.

233
00:33:22.500 --> 00:33:26.400
Eli van der Giessen: I hear you as someone who's worked in a bilingual organization in the past.

234
00:33:27.480 --> 00:33:30.180
Eli van der Giessen: That was a constant source of frustration.

235
00:33:31.200 --> 00:33:42.510
Eli van der Giessen: So why don't I dive in, and I'm going to do my first quick little demo. And here's sort of the model for today, which is we're just going to basically pass the screen share around

236
00:33:43.800 --> 00:33:54.900
Eli van der Giessen: And, you know, and each one of you can actually take over that screen share by just hitting in the green button at the bottom so screen share and I just say, you know, turn that on, when it's your turn.

237
00:33:55.650 --> 00:34:03.750
Eli van der Giessen: I'll be here with a five minute timer. So if you go a little bit long all you know, go, go, tick, tick, tick and maybe eventually like take over the screen share from you.

238
00:34:04.200 --> 00:34:20.910
Eli van der Giessen: But otherwise, it's going to work out well. And I think what will want to do is just like a quick demo of like a tool, a productivity tip that we think might be useful for others. So let me fire this up and I'll walk you through the first thing

239
00:34:21.930 --> 00:34:22.440
Eli van der Giessen: So,

240
00:34:23.580 --> 00:34:27.480
Eli van der Giessen: Um, I spend my life working with text.

241
00:34:28.860 --> 00:34:40.230
Eli van der Giessen: And and so the first thing I do whenever I get a new computer is I install an app that does automatic text expansion and there's loads of options that will do this.

242
00:34:40.620 --> 00:34:45.510
Eli van der Giessen: But it will save you over time as you get more and more used to it. It tremendous amount of work.

243
00:34:46.320 --> 00:34:54.660
Eli van der Giessen: In my job basically as a volunteer manager I send a variant on the same message to basically everyone in the world over and over again.

244
00:34:55.020 --> 00:35:01.650
Eli van der Giessen: And this is one way for me to just reduce some of that overhead, and you can do it for all kinds of small things so

245
00:35:01.950 --> 00:35:09.210
Eli van der Giessen: What you do as a text expand is, you type in a couple of short characters and it spits out all the texts for you so

246
00:35:09.660 --> 00:35:17.280
Eli van der Giessen: I have a ridiculous name, and I don't want to type it out all the time because it's exhausting. So if I just go like E L i

247
00:35:17.730 --> 00:35:22.590
Eli van der Giessen: It automatically expands out all of my name, including my ridiculous Vander geese and last name.

248
00:35:23.490 --> 00:35:27.540
Eli van der Giessen: And or but sometimes you're like oh Someone just wants to my home address. You're like, oh,

249
00:35:28.020 --> 00:35:41.070
Eli van der Giessen: It's a lot of numbers. So if I just go, ah, a DD or a SS boom it spits it out or similarly, maybe I want to do that with my work address kapow. There it is. And you can just sort of fill that piece out for you.

250
00:35:41.520 --> 00:35:51.150
Eli van der Giessen: Or maybe you want something longer you someone's like, oh, I need your bio bio again. I'm like, Oh, well, where is that, again, but I just put it in here. And so I just like type in

251
00:35:51.810 --> 00:36:00.720
Eli van der Giessen: Well, you know, basically by shorthand FOUND BY A Biography Biography and it spits it all out there. You can of course also use this for common misspellings

252
00:36:01.230 --> 00:36:12.420
Eli van der Giessen: Or maybe you've got a whole bunch of email addresses. You can also say like, Oh, Eli at V boom spits it out or maybe why Eli at T boom spits it out.

253
00:36:12.900 --> 00:36:20.640
Eli van der Giessen: And what's nice is a lot of these tactics pension apps also will basically sync up to your phone with like one of those custom keyboards.

254
00:36:21.090 --> 00:36:29.220
Eli van der Giessen: Which means you can be in your phone and say like, Oh, I need to type out this whole big ugly thing on my phone keyboard, which makes me nauseous or

255
00:36:29.610 --> 00:36:37.680
Eli van der Giessen: You can, you know, go into your text expansion keyboard spit out one of these shortcuts and then boom, the text gets spit out

256
00:36:38.490 --> 00:36:52.140
Eli van der Giessen: And over time, you can get even more sophisticated. You can use it to like sort of drop things in at a certain point, you can say like spit out this big line of text, but then at the second line put in like this little form or insertion point

257
00:36:52.950 --> 00:37:02.730
Eli van der Giessen: And so that can be really helpful as you get your work. So you can get really sophisticated, but I'd say at the beginning. Take a look at tools like text expand or

258
00:37:03.330 --> 00:37:11.340
Eli van der Giessen: Or similar tools like that. Some of them will charge. I think it's well worth the money. Others are free, but I think it's super helpful.

259
00:37:11.580 --> 00:37:20.670
Eli van der Giessen: And then the other thing I always recommend for anyone away on a new computer is you want to have some kind of clipboard service. So here in my

260
00:37:21.270 --> 00:37:32.700
Eli van der Giessen: Mac. I've got something, you know, that's called paste spot and all it does is it remembers everything you've ever put your clipboard. So if you say like, Oh, I want to

261
00:37:33.210 --> 00:37:39.990
Eli van der Giessen: Copy the word together, but also the word interstitial and also the word passionate

262
00:37:40.500 --> 00:37:46.830
Eli van der Giessen: And now you say like, Oh, now I'm going to go to another app and start copying those things in when I just bring up the special keyboard and say, like,

263
00:37:47.190 --> 00:38:05.100
Eli van der Giessen: Oh yeah, those together. Boom. And so say you copied something an hour ago. You can find it again, and it is life saving once you go to using a text like a pasteboard service, you'll never go back. So that's the quick demo, I want to start with just focused on how to play with text.

264
00:38:14.190 --> 00:38:17.850
Eli van der Giessen: So what do you think who feels brave, who wants to show something else off.

265
00:38:21.930 --> 00:38:28.530
Mohammad Bashir: I'll show me one software. It's a descriptive video scripting. It's so much

266
00:38:29.550 --> 00:38:35.760
Mohammad Bashir: Advanced ABS kind of thing. So the name is the script. I'll just share the screen here.

267
00:38:36.450 --> 00:38:37.020
Great.

268
00:38:38.850 --> 00:38:43.770
Eli van der Giessen: And I will start up my little five minute timer, which of course I am fairly did not turn out for myself. Okay.

269
00:38:44.280 --> 00:39:01.350
Mohammad Bashir: So it's just a descriptor you we have a script for the video if we want we want, we can also delete that that little thing and it will take the lead the that tax wise and the video from from the video as well and

270
00:39:05.490 --> 00:39:08.700
Mohammad Bashir: Let's say that okay, I'll just

271
00:39:13.860 --> 00:39:20.160
Mohammad Bashir: Let me see if I share it properly. Okay. The sound is are known as well so

272
00:39:24.660 --> 00:39:26.010
If you want to check out your edit.

273
00:39:27.810 --> 00:39:28.710
Mohammad Bashir: Okay, I'll just

274
00:39:30.420 --> 00:39:31.470
Mohammad Bashir: Delete this one.

275
00:39:37.680 --> 00:39:47.370
Mohammad Bashir: Video. If you want to check out your so that text deleted also gone out from from the video as well. So this is powerful. If we want to add some text here.

276
00:39:47.880 --> 00:40:11.070
Mohammad Bashir: And that will be added into the video with the same voice of that person, not, not the automated voice or the computer wizard thing. So that is very helpful. I'm using kind of free version just testing it out. So this is very powerful. We can have this one into video in

277
00:40:12.630 --> 00:40:17.130
Mohammad Bashir: College. I forget we call the description here in the title.

278
00:40:18.720 --> 00:40:24.600
Mohammad Bashir: So subtitles. Yeah, we can have this one in subtitles people like me who English is just

279
00:40:25.140 --> 00:40:34.620
Mohammad Bashir: Running around all over the places, so it will be easier for the people who are native English understand my accent and some people say that

280
00:40:35.070 --> 00:40:55.710
Mohammad Bashir: Your accent is is not so good. So I tell I tell them that it's not for sales. You cannot have it so that that is very cool. It's very advanced and nice software it of course in spirit. So it's cheap to like I think $10 per month, you can have unlimited

281
00:40:56.910 --> 00:41:02.010
Mohammad Bashir: The transcription transcription and stuff like that. So it's, it's very cool.

282
00:41:04.560 --> 00:41:13.170
Eli van der Giessen: So, that's amazing. I was just playing with otter.ai today, which did that part. And I think I was really impressed with it for for like

283
00:41:13.470 --> 00:41:19.830
Eli van der Giessen: doing interviews we could actually like subset, the different speakers, but I'm really love what you've shown me there because

284
00:41:20.310 --> 00:41:27.600
Eli van der Giessen: It takes the editing process of podcasts, which otherwise it's really painful and you're like, went to transcribe everything and allows you to just

285
00:41:27.930 --> 00:41:42.870
Eli van der Giessen: Clean that up. I'm just like, oh, get rid of that line. And it just uses this visual interface to get rid of it. So that's really exciting and sounds like there's enough like tell me more like is there a pricing model on it. Is it mostly free for the first couple hours.

286
00:41:44.160 --> 00:41:45.120
Mohammad Bashir: It is

287
00:41:46.350 --> 00:42:00.810
Mohammad Bashir: That will, you know, people use it for transcript transcribe the video so three hours are free. Like, I only use two minutes. So it's two hours and 58 millimeter frame for me so far. So it is I'll just maybe go on their website.

288
00:42:27.420 --> 00:42:41.220
Mohammad Bashir: Is $15 $14 per month. And for the team is $18 per user. This is also per user. So it has a lot of men features. So far, we actually it's a $10 per month.

289
00:42:42.630 --> 00:42:50.370
Mohammad Bashir: So it has video, audio meeting recording you know editing live color collaborations, so we can

290
00:42:51.690 --> 00:43:00.600
Mohammad Bashir: It can also remember the wise up if there are three four people are speaking so it can relate to those those three actors or four actors as well.

291
00:43:01.530 --> 00:43:14.850
Mohammad Bashir: And it can when you added to it. Sometimes if I mispronounce somebody's name and then I can remove that mispronunciation and insert the correct one, and it will read in my voice.

292
00:43:15.690 --> 00:43:24.960
Mohammad Bashir: The right one. So that's so much better. We don't have to kind of in the I've been in the video editing for some time. So that was

293
00:43:25.770 --> 00:43:38.700
Mohammad Bashir: You know sometimes we don't know the cast name is pronounced sentence. You have to do it again. Otherwise, this was very cool feature that way. So we can go to the website is the script.

294
00:43:39.180 --> 00:43:45.990
Eli van der Giessen: Perfect Day I put the link into the chat window as well. And you're perfectly on time. You got four seconds left.

295
00:43:46.500 --> 00:43:59.520
Eli van der Giessen: Thank you. That was, that was really impressive. I am definitely hunting that down and sending it out to the tech soup validation team to reach out and see if we can get that on some kind of nonprofit discount program. Love that.

296
00:44:03.840 --> 00:44:06.930
Eli van der Giessen: So what do you think, who, who would like to share something else.

297
00:44:11.160 --> 00:44:16.470
Anne: Well, I'll share because mine is a good segue from

298
00:44:17.640 --> 00:44:21.840
Anne: Mohammed's tool, which is kind of blowing my mind right now. I really

299
00:44:24.300 --> 00:44:41.430
Anne: I've used screen cast automatic. Maybe you guys have to. It's a free online software. But I got to the point where I needed to do something more lengthy I needed for the client wanted me to record our sessions which

300
00:44:43.200 --> 00:44:55.710
Anne: When beyond two hours at times. So I was mentoring and tutoring him on various web stuff. So we went with Mojave

301
00:44:56.820 --> 00:44:58.650
Anne: Let me share the screen and

302
00:44:59.850 --> 00:45:12.960
Anne: You'll get the basics. If I can't even remember if you can edit things with screen cast o matic it's been that long since I've used it, but with Mojave, you can. So let me get the screen share

303
00:45:15.090 --> 00:45:16.290
Right.

304
00:45:24.810 --> 00:45:28.320
Anne: It's a little there's a little lag here. Got it.

305
00:45:28.560 --> 00:45:29.520
It's on its way.

306
00:45:31.560 --> 00:45:37.170
Anne: So you're going to see everything always go with desktop view. I don't want to

307
00:45:38.220 --> 00:45:58.650
Anne: Have to go back and forth. Okay, so here's what happens when you first launch Mojave is you get this option about what kind of settings you want. I just always just click OK and then basically go to record screen cast. So we could record right now.

308
00:46:00.210 --> 00:46:05.160
Anne: It will take a minute or so to get the bouncing ball there.

309
00:46:07.320 --> 00:46:18.360
Anne: You can set up your screen with and your screen height and the sounds and all that. Another reason. Whoops. Okay. Can you guys even see that

310
00:46:18.600 --> 00:46:20.130
Eli van der Giessen: Not enough it's coming through.

311
00:46:20.250 --> 00:46:30.390
Anne: Okay, so, and it's always prompting me to update and I just say, you know, get out of my life. Okay, so let me get rid of some stuff.

312
00:46:33.240 --> 00:46:46.140
Anne: So here you can set the system audio and you test the mic and all that you can record. Okay, so let's record. Another reason I like the tool is because you can

313
00:46:47.970 --> 00:46:53.730
Anne: You can pause. Okay, so there's a little tool up there where you can pause and then go back in

314
00:46:54.780 --> 00:47:04.170
Anne: I usually when I do a screen cast. I usually have a script off to the side where I'm not capturing anything over there.

315
00:47:05.850 --> 00:47:15.780
Anne: So I like to keep things moving as best as I can. When I'm doing the screen cast but inevitably you know I screw up. So when I stop it.

316
00:47:17.190 --> 00:47:29.280
Anne: Can't remember sometimes like just now. I couldn't remember if I had still been on pause or not. So I often have to repeat myself and, you know, go back and edit things

317
00:47:29.640 --> 00:47:40.170
Anne: So now with Muhammad's tool I'm thinking, Okay, I gotta try that out. Next time I do one of these you can save it to your computer.

318
00:47:41.370 --> 00:47:46.770
Anne: When I think with screen cast automatic you can upload directly to YouTube.

319
00:47:48.060 --> 00:48:09.180
Anne: I think you can probably do that with this tool, but I'm not positive. There are a lot of different mudavadi tools. This is called mobile the screen capture studio three and it is a chunk of change I it's been a while since I purchased it, so I'm going to guess it was something like $99

320
00:48:10.830 --> 00:48:13.650
Anne: But that would be good. It's not a monthly

321
00:48:14.730 --> 00:48:22.800
Anne: Subscription. It's just a regular purchase. So I think that's it. Okay, let's stop at their

322
00:48:25.380 --> 00:48:32.610
Eli van der Giessen: Great. So you've done a bit of a recording so so so now what, like, you know, does it like to spit out the video like

323
00:48:32.970 --> 00:48:33.420
Anne: Yeah.

324
00:48:33.450 --> 00:48:34.140
Eli van der Giessen: So the next step.

325
00:48:34.620 --> 00:48:35.670
Let's do that.

326
00:48:37.650 --> 00:48:38.220
Okay.

327
00:48:42.060 --> 00:48:46.260
Anne: It will save it as an MP4 see you do that.

328
00:48:48.510 --> 00:48:49.020
Anne: And

329
00:48:52.470 --> 00:48:54.600
Anne: There it is screen.

330
00:48:56.130 --> 00:48:58.230
Anne: I have a folder where I put everything

331
00:48:59.700 --> 00:49:07.080
Anne: This one is a very short one. So I would rename it and I've got a bunch of them here. I'll rename it test.

332
00:49:15.540 --> 00:49:18.540
Anne: And then you go back into Mojave to edit it.

333
00:49:20.820 --> 00:49:25.380
Anne: So let's try that. I'm probably running over time.

334
00:49:25.560 --> 00:49:26.790
Eli van der Giessen: You're still good. You just have three

335
00:49:26.790 --> 00:49:28.650
Anne: Men still good. Okay.

336
00:49:32.010 --> 00:49:33.210
Anne: What the hell do I do

337
00:49:34.650 --> 00:49:41.160
Anne: Oh, there we go. Okay, so with this screen so video editor screen and what's

338
00:49:42.480 --> 00:49:47.760
Anne: What's hard for me right now to anything's open and the hell is it

339
00:49:51.240 --> 00:49:55.830
Anne: Okay, so somewhere here. All right. There we go. I bring it in.

340
00:49:57.270 --> 00:50:01.560
Anne: To edit the case and it's a little short guy.

341
00:50:01.860 --> 00:50:05.550
Eli van der Giessen: Cools is dragging it right into a timeline. I guess a video editor.

342
00:50:06.000 --> 00:50:18.900
Anne: Exactly. You can slice and dice and all that stuff. You can add music. You can add overlays. I haven't figured out completely, how the overlays work without

343
00:50:20.340 --> 00:50:37.170
Anne: It being throughout the video I would like to just somehow place a title there at the beginning and then have it disappear, and I haven't gotten that sophisticated with it yet. So that's, that's one tool. And then the other one is my code snippet tool.

344
00:50:38.340 --> 00:50:38.730
Eli van der Giessen: So,

345
00:50:38.790 --> 00:50:41.970
Eli van der Giessen: So, and I'm just gonna let you know. So because we're coming to the end of your time.

346
00:50:42.360 --> 00:50:51.870
Eli van der Giessen: You want to hold this and will come around back. I'd love to see the code snippet tool final 10 seconds. What are you doing these videos, like what what's uh, what do you get to do with these

347
00:50:52.290 --> 00:50:58.560
Anne: I place them up on YouTube, what started me out doing it was because when I was teaching the kids would

348
00:50:59.340 --> 00:51:06.690
Anne: You know, always asked me the same questions like, week to week, month to month. How do you do that again. How do you do that again.

349
00:51:07.140 --> 00:51:17.550
Anne: And so rather than repeating myself I'd say, you know what I am video. And sometimes I'll walk into the room and I'll hear them listening to these videos. So it's pretty cool.

350
00:51:19.020 --> 00:51:24.270
Eli van der Giessen: I totally hear that I think all of us have people who come to us with the same question all the

351
00:51:24.570 --> 00:51:24.810
Time.

352
00:51:26.490 --> 00:51:34.830
Anne: And so now I have a YouTube channel and when clients asked me things or whatever, you know, so I just do videos to answer their questions.

353
00:51:35.400 --> 00:51:40.620
Eli van der Giessen: Luckily, that's that sounds really great, thank you. And yeah, we'll definitely come around for the code snippet tool as well.

354
00:51:40.860 --> 00:51:42.930
Anne: Okay, I'm getting out of here.

355
00:51:44.370 --> 00:51:46.680
Anne: Do I need to stop sharing my screen.

356
00:51:47.880 --> 00:51:55.890
Eli van der Giessen: Yeah, you may as well. Thank you. Okay. So who would like to go next. Anyone else interested in sharing like their secret tip or tool.

357
00:52:01.020 --> 00:52:12.420
Victoria: everyone my name is Victoria. Sorry, I had to step, step, step out for some of it, but I was here for a while. So I didn't give her any tools to share, but just

358
00:52:12.870 --> 00:52:19.860
Victoria: Or social mentions that I bought for cultural tourism inserts movement Ontario and we are based in Toronto, Ontario.

359
00:52:20.700 --> 00:52:29.070
Victoria: So I didn't prepare a presentation, what tools to use. But generally, we use WordPress Mail Chimp and

360
00:52:29.670 --> 00:52:47.040
Victoria: You'll see the post videos online. So I thought, I will share analysis software which is pretty easy to kind of get a handle off. So it's also video editing dependency Visual Studio pro and I don't have it here.

361
00:52:48.180 --> 00:53:01.290
Victoria: And but I sent the link and it's it's pretty cost effective is between 60 Blake $2 and it's relatively easy to learn to use if I ever several to use it. So can you

362
00:53:02.490 --> 00:53:17.190
Victoria: And what I do like about this is that if it's pretty easy to block videos to make them into one videos. It has a citizen selection to move from one segment or nicer. It lets you color a trusted because sometimes we put

363
00:53:17.850 --> 00:53:27.000
Victoria: Out records and watch this video. So someone's record. It's lighting is not the best. So it actually gives decent amount of just playing with

364
00:53:27.510 --> 00:53:39.780
Victoria: Like called activities and full of violence and it's also for free support which I find valuable because some places don't have to support the new model like MailChimp which we use for singing

365
00:53:41.460 --> 00:53:42.090
Victoria: So since

366
00:53:42.540 --> 00:53:43.230
Mike mobile

367
00:53:44.250 --> 00:53:53.400
Eli van der Giessen: Well thank you and and yeah I I used to be terrified of any video editing interface, but I've slowly come around to start getting my head around it as well.

368
00:53:57.480 --> 00:54:06.150
Éric M. Beaulieu: While we're talking about video. Can I just mention one tool. Unfortunately, I can't share my screen because my bandwidth is I'm on my phone in the bandwidth is really

369
00:54:06.720 --> 00:54:20.460
Éric M. Beaulieu: Bad, but we use a camera a lot eight m a r k.org it's a it's a free tool that helps us create subtitles in multiple languages for given video. So it's a it's a team tool.

370
00:54:20.970 --> 00:54:35.010
Éric M. Beaulieu: It works very well in a multiple settings, Mac, Windows. You can pick any YouTube video. So sometimes you might want to subtitled somebody else's video because you refer to it a lot.

371
00:54:35.400 --> 00:54:43.440
Éric M. Beaulieu: So that works for that. Also, it's, it's very interesting. And they also have a pricing model if you want somebody else to subtitle a video for you.

372
00:54:45.120 --> 00:54:50.010
Eli van der Giessen: Right, you can bring in sort of like they've got a team of contractors to help with that as well.

373
00:54:50.610 --> 00:54:51.300
Exactly.

374
00:54:53.040 --> 00:55:02.790
Eli van der Giessen: That's, that's really interesting. You know that it's sort of about this distributed crowdsource model do you normally do this like with staff or volunteers, like who's doing some of this.

375
00:55:02.790 --> 00:55:11.640
Éric M. Beaulieu: Translation a I would say a combination. So what we tend to do is to have volunteers and then staff to proofread.

376
00:55:12.210 --> 00:55:22.230
Éric M. Beaulieu: Know, because, because, you know, there's a couple of subtleties with video. You don't want to have excessive subtitles on one screen, you need to pace it correctly so

377
00:55:22.800 --> 00:55:32.040
Éric M. Beaulieu: And sometimes that requires editing. So, but the volunteers do all the heavy lifting of subtitling in multiple languages and then you can have somebody else just due to finishing

378
00:55:34.680 --> 00:55:49.860
Eli van der Giessen: Love that approach. I think that sounds super wise the sort of you know how this two step process where you both, you know, get to take advantage of volunteers and their skills, but then also do like this final sort of proofing through staff.

379
00:55:50.580 --> 00:55:55.740
Éric M. Beaulieu: Yeah, absolutely. And sometimes it might be something that's very technical. So having an expert proofread.

380
00:55:56.130 --> 00:56:08.790
Éric M. Beaulieu: Regular English doesn't make a whole lot of sense. But having them proofread somebody that's something that's 98% there but just fixing the parts that require technical expertise is a very efficient and cost effective way of doing it too.

381
00:56:11.790 --> 00:56:26.190
Eli van der Giessen: Awesome. And yeah, I just had a question here in the chat around, you know what's going to happen with recording of the session. And the answer is, I'll take this and I'll upload this to the net square blog probably tomorrow I'll drop that link into the chat.

382
00:56:27.240 --> 00:56:32.130
Eli van der Giessen: So the video will go to that Net Squared blog by sometime tomorrow after dinner.

383
00:56:33.930 --> 00:56:45.690
Eli van der Giessen: So if others have demos. They want to share. You can also kill yourself up in the chat by, like, you know, basically like saying like, hey, I want to go next and we'd be happy to them to sort of work our way towards you.

384
00:56:47.340 --> 00:56:51.450
Eli van der Giessen: But the moment the queue is empty, who who feels brave who'd like to go next.

385
00:56:54.960 --> 00:56:58.200
Eli van der Giessen: All right, I've got 30 still on mute. But sounds like I see a hand. Lovely.

386
00:56:58.950 --> 00:57:00.090
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: Okay, um,

387
00:57:01.530 --> 00:57:09.150
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: Give me just one second, make sure we've got the right things queued up here. I'm going to run through to super quick and. All right.

388
00:57:12.930 --> 00:57:13.590
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: Your screen.

389
00:57:17.070 --> 00:57:18.570
Eli van der Giessen: Perfect and your five minutes.

390
00:57:18.570 --> 00:57:19.860
Eli van der Giessen: Starts. Oh.

391
00:57:20.160 --> 00:57:20.760
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: Hang on a second.

392
00:57:22.920 --> 00:57:27.000
Eli van der Giessen: I know it's terrifying where it says, like, all right, like everyone's desktop is busy.

393
00:57:31.230 --> 00:57:47.940
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: Alright, so the first one here is app Sumo which I call Groupon for geeks and there's lots of tools tech tools and information tools. If your WordPress. If you're looking for CRM sincere categories, there's

394
00:57:49.950 --> 00:58:05.640
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: CRM client management content courses you know a lot of different things. Marketing SEO sales pitch photos so lifetime deals of startup companies. A lot of times, the little put their stuff out here on app sumo and give a lifetime deal

395
00:58:06.300 --> 00:58:17.700
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: Or really, you know, for like 49 bucks you got a lifetime deal, something that normally later on, you'd be paying 29 bucks a month for so the great opportunities as well as there's plenty of freebies.

396
00:58:18.540 --> 00:58:24.990
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: And, you know, sometimes, some of them are courses. Some of them are one year subscriptions. Two things. One thing that I

397
00:58:25.260 --> 00:58:33.570
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: I have a lifetime on because from an early as track my subs. This has a one year free sample even just keeping track of all your

398
00:58:34.050 --> 00:58:51.330
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: Subscriptions I'm going to drop it, if you don't mind going to drop a link a referral code because then you can save 10 bucks if you do purchase anything and then jumping over to string yard is it platform.

399
00:58:52.890 --> 00:58:55.350
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: I accidentally closed. Hang on a second.

400
00:59:00.570 --> 00:59:01.080
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: Hang on.

401
00:59:03.450 --> 00:59:04.800
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: I don't like doing like this. In summary,

402
00:59:04.950 --> 00:59:08.820
Eli van der Giessen: I don't live demos are terrified. Don't worry, it's Deborah gone perfectly for anyone.

403
00:59:10.290 --> 00:59:11.430
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: On people seeing all this

404
00:59:14.130 --> 00:59:14.880
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: I had an open

405
00:59:17.340 --> 00:59:27.960
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: Stream yard is a platform that you can sign up for free, there's there's free levels. And then there's paid levels and you can share to

406
00:59:30.600 --> 00:59:39.990
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: Like you can be lot on Facebook Live and promoted out to multiple groups at the same time, you can share it out to simultaneously to LinkedIn and

407
00:59:40.320 --> 00:59:51.390
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: YouTube and even Periscope. If any of you know Periscope. So it's a nice convenient way to put your broadcast and what's kind of fun. As you can pull people in

408
00:59:51.840 --> 01:00:07.380
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: And so people that are logged into streaming are it'll pull up like so if if you're on Facebook Live and three different groups, you can pull people's comments up into the feed and you can also host

409
01:00:08.370 --> 01:00:20.730
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: You can have people in like the you can see underneath there that you can have multiple broadcasters and have people in the background. You know, you think of a live a live

410
01:00:22.050 --> 01:00:33.570
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: Like Saturday Night Live. There might have people in the waiting room or whatever and then pull them into the live event, you know, so you can be like backstage and then be pulled up on on screen.

411
01:00:33.660 --> 01:00:36.870
Eli van der Giessen: riser could get everyone queued up and sort of bring people in. Okay.

412
01:00:36.930 --> 01:00:38.100
Eli van der Giessen: That's really interesting.

413
01:00:38.340 --> 01:00:46.680
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: People you know and if you can kick people back out and it's really fun. I learned about it from one of my mentors, but the text star Startup Weekend.

414
01:00:46.980 --> 01:00:54.990
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: Utilized it quite effectively for engaging people so it's it's the multi multi purpose, a lot of cool things. But I'll put a

415
01:00:55.770 --> 01:01:08.700
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: referral code in there as well so that you'll get a 10 bucks. It is free, but there is paid paid levels that you can do more with it. So I'll drop those in the chat and I don't have much time to have left.

416
01:01:09.420 --> 01:01:10.680
Eli van der Giessen: You still got one minute.

417
01:01:11.370 --> 01:01:18.840
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: One minute. Okay. And then I'm just going to put a plug, but my I own a digital marketing agency and I'm involved in a lot of nonprofits.

418
01:01:19.590 --> 01:01:29.820
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: I had wanted to show a demo of one other thing that it's not free, but I am offering my service for free for nonprofits that if

419
01:01:30.360 --> 01:01:39.510
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: It's a widget that you can sorry line of code that you can put into any website doesn't matter if it's WordPress or HTML but Atlanta code that you can put in and have a call feature.

420
01:01:39.840 --> 01:01:48.540
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: That it can bring that somebody can press that they can enter their number and it'll have the system call the person. It'll, it'll bring your phone to call so

421
01:01:48.960 --> 01:01:58.860
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: It's a way of because a lot of people might see a phone number, but never call they'd rather have somebody call them and then you're not missing out on opportunities.

422
01:01:59.250 --> 01:02:07.740
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: And has analytics and metrics and so forth so that you aren't missing those calls. So if you're looking for donor. You know you want that donor to

423
01:02:08.670 --> 01:02:18.930
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: You know, when the donors wants to, you know, or volunteer wants to get involved. They want to know right then. So you can set away messages and we're incorporating text as well. But I'll put my

424
01:02:19.350 --> 01:02:32.640
Darcey - www.GoalDen.Solutions: I'm Darcy Hall and golden solutions geo al di n solutions com Aaron Vegas, but I will pop my information and then any nonprofits are welcome to reach out to me and I'll provide that service for free.

425
01:02:33.570 --> 01:02:38.400
Eli van der Giessen: Lovely, thank you. Yes, definitely share the link in there and and thanks for for joining us today.

426
01:02:39.780 --> 01:02:47.160
Eli van der Giessen: And yeah, I'm actually definitely going to be hunting down vid yard because you know we're live streaming this to Facebook right now.

427
01:02:47.610 --> 01:02:56.250
Eli van der Giessen: But, uh, we know there's obviously all those other channels. We've got which I'm currently ignoring I know because I haven't used these multi streaming services.

428
01:02:57.060 --> 01:03:06.360
Eli van der Giessen: Anyone else want to dive into this or, you know, we can also go back to some of the people we missed earlier who who had other things they wanted to share

429
01:03:13.320 --> 01:03:15.510
Eli van der Giessen: All right, Jason, you're up.

430
01:03:19.410 --> 01:03:31.050
Jason Shim: A few things that I use fairly frequently. So I will just share my screen and just make sure that that is up.

431
01:03:32.280 --> 01:03:38.100
Jason Shim: Alright, so the first one is I mentioned earlier, but I just wanted to show the group video

432
01:03:39.180 --> 01:03:53.010
Jason Shim: For for this one. So this is really just a screen recording and browser extension. So I found this particularly happy for contacting tech support and I get the kind of feedback I get is, like, Oh my gosh, like this was the most helpful kind of tech support ticket.

433
01:03:54.090 --> 01:03:57.690
Jason Shim: Submitted because you can directly kind of show like what's happening. So if you press record.

434
01:03:58.770 --> 01:03:59.400
Jason Shim: You can

435
01:04:01.080 --> 01:04:13.590
Jason Shim: Record which screen you want and and it will just start so you know everything that I'm saying right now. Like, you know. Hello, I am testing this out and I am you know searching for cheeky and

436
01:04:15.180 --> 01:04:20.010
Jason Shim: Yeah, stuff like that. And then you can just click stop and then it will

437
01:04:25.170 --> 01:04:29.820
Jason Shim: pull this up here and then it renders pretty quickly, and it's ready to go.

438
01:04:32.310 --> 01:04:36.270
Jason Shim: And so you can just take a link for it and then you can just paste it into an email.

439
01:04:37.410 --> 01:04:43.170
Jason Shim: For whatever you need. So you so you know everything that I'm saying oh so that that's the video that's ready to go.

440
01:04:44.970 --> 01:04:54.360
Jason Shim: The other tool that I want to share is on shaky. So if anyone has the infamous Apple keyboards, that is the butterfly one

441
01:04:56.190 --> 01:05:10.440
Jason Shim: For me it is causing a random sprinkling of a's and O's across all my emails and so the shaky app is it'll insert an auto delay for it kind of sits in your

442
01:05:11.190 --> 01:05:19.620
Jason Shim: Your taskbar and I'm trying to figure out how I can pull that up. There you go. So you can see here that is dismissed 2000 shaky presses.

443
01:05:20.370 --> 01:05:30.300
Jason Shim: So I'm having a lot of problems with my with my A and okie currently. So if you go to, they just miss it will actually give you the statistics like you guys have to dismiss 945

444
01:05:30.720 --> 01:05:44.130
Jason Shim: Double hits of the OT and a key. So right now it's a little bit difficult to get to a store to to fix my keyboard. So I was told about this app last month. And it's been a lifesaver. And I

445
01:05:45.360 --> 01:05:48.300
Jason Shim: It's going to tide me over until I can get my keyboard replaced

446
01:05:51.210 --> 01:05:58.500
Jason Shim: The last one I'd like to show everyone is I actually just discovered this one today. It was just posted on on Hacker News.

447
01:05:59.760 --> 01:06:05.580
Jason Shim: It's an open source, kind of in browser audio editor. It's very, very lightweight, it's

448
01:06:06.870 --> 01:06:20.970
Jason Shim: It's pretty much like the open source software audacity, which is, you know, a lot of folks may use it for audio editing, but it's completely in the browser. So if you want to pull up a sample of, you know, something like you can play

449
01:06:22.980 --> 01:06:33.120
Jason Shim: Be like, oh, I don't like that beginning portion, you know, just, you know, clip it out. And, you know, just do basic kind of effects. If you want to add like to refer to a certain section and then your previous

450
01:06:34.950 --> 01:06:35.310
Jason Shim: Thing.

451
01:06:37.590 --> 01:06:44.880
Jason Shim: Yeah, so I thought this was just a really cool tool that you know it just kind of speaks to all the neat stuff that you can do in browsers.

452
01:06:45.450 --> 01:06:59.610
Jason Shim: Is, you know, it's really blurring the lines between, you know, desktop apps and and what you can do inside. So yeah, just stumbled across this today and thought I'd share with the group. So that's the audio mascot to yeah that's pretty cool. I

453
01:06:59.670 --> 01:07:04.320
Eli van der Giessen: Yeah, as an old person I'm my mind is blown by what actually lives within a browser these days.

454
01:07:06.030 --> 01:07:09.060
Jason Shim: Yeah, I've had a lot of fun playing with it. So yeah, that's it for me.

455
01:07:09.840 --> 01:07:10.770
Eli van der Giessen: Lovely. Well, thank you.

456
01:07:15.630 --> 01:07:22.920
Eli van der Giessen: So why don't we circle back to, and I know you had a browser snippet of code snippet thing you wanted to show off.

457
01:07:25.920 --> 01:07:26.730
Anne: Your

458
01:07:29.010 --> 01:07:30.540
Anne: Yeah, um,

459
01:07:31.680 --> 01:07:46.080
Anne: You know code snippets. What do you do with them. I started out, putting them in a Microsoft Word file and then I thought, well, that doesn't work very well. I need to be able to label them and filter them and

460
01:07:47.490 --> 01:07:52.380
Anne: You know, what if Microsoft Word is acting funky or whatever. So

461
01:07:54.750 --> 01:07:59.160
Anne: I came across this tool and I'll do my screen share

462
01:08:00.900 --> 01:08:02.760
Anne: It's called casher

463
01:08:04.050 --> 01:08:06.900
Anne: Anybody hear your use that one.

464
01:08:08.340 --> 01:08:15.090
Anne: Day. No, no cash or no um it integrates with

465
01:08:16.590 --> 01:08:26.910
Anne: Gift GitHub or guess tub. I can't remember which one of those. But this is the interface. You guys seeing it. Okay.

466
01:08:29.550 --> 01:08:30.060
Eli van der Giessen: Yes.

467
01:08:30.120 --> 01:08:31.830
Anne: Okay, so

468
01:08:34.020 --> 01:08:44.820
Anne: You have a bunch of labels on the sidebar on the left sidebar and so you can categorize them by labeling them. So for instance,

469
01:08:46.050 --> 01:08:50.790
Anne: If you just want to filter out and see all of your. Come on, baby.

470
01:08:52.290 --> 01:09:10.560
Anne: Or so I thought maybe I should do it up here in a minute. Now, the old lag time. I think that's what's happening. Okay, so, um, if I just want to look at apps plugins and software related snippets. I just filter it that way. I do a lot of

471
01:09:12.270 --> 01:09:31.290
Anne: WordPress stuff so that has the bulk of them 212 code snippets. And so, you know, I'll come across things in my everyday work life. And I just want to keep track of the objects and awesome code snippets. So I'll just paste it in here.

472
01:09:33.000 --> 01:09:36.420
Anne: We'll go into let's to

473
01:09:37.710 --> 01:09:40.290
Anne: Explain responsive menu navigation.

474
01:09:41.700 --> 01:09:45.930
Anne: Okay, so oftentimes it involves multiple

475
01:09:47.220 --> 01:10:08.160
Anne: Steps. So I'll do step one, you do this in the functions PHP file step to create a new file name of responsive menu JS JavaScript. So it can handle HTML, CSS PHP. Javascript, did I say that JavaScript.

476
01:10:09.840 --> 01:10:16.920
Anne: And then your style sheet and then you can refer back to it and save yourself some time.

477
01:10:18.180 --> 01:10:18.900
Anne: So,

478
01:10:20.220 --> 01:10:22.980
Anne: Oftentimes, I'll create a new snippet.

479
01:10:26.070 --> 01:10:32.190
Anne: And I'll give it its proper label. It's just really slow with the bandwidth, I guess so.

480
01:10:33.570 --> 01:10:35.850
Anne: Yeah, we go on, name it.

481
01:10:38.040 --> 01:10:41.130
Anne: On times on Thursday.

482
01:10:44.040 --> 01:10:49.680
Anne: You can name it here. I mean, this is the way I do it. You can of course do it any way you like.

483
01:10:51.240 --> 01:10:51.930
Anne: And then

484
01:10:53.010 --> 01:11:10.860
Anne: We move on now, so it can take straight text, all these things. Let's scroll up you can see all the stuff that can take c++ cold fusion CSS, you know all that and it will keep the

485
01:11:12.600 --> 01:11:13.080
Anne: The

486
01:11:15.660 --> 01:11:19.470
Anne: color scheme involved to help you read it later.

487
01:11:21.840 --> 01:11:22.830
Anne: HTML.

488
01:11:29.070 --> 01:11:30.150
Anne: And then up here.

489
01:11:31.290 --> 01:11:34.380
Anne: can assign multiple labels or just one label.

490
01:11:35.640 --> 01:11:37.140
Anne: You can make it private.

491
01:11:39.810 --> 01:11:44.700
Anne: I make most of mine public because that's the whole idea is to share the snippets.

492
01:11:48.480 --> 01:11:51.870
Eli van der Giessen: If only because you were already harvesting them off the internet. Anyway, so

493
01:11:51.930 --> 01:11:53.430
Anne: Exactly, yeah.

494
01:11:55.170 --> 01:11:58.380
Anne: So, you know, rather than write the code from scratch.

495
01:11:59.550 --> 01:12:01.800
Anne: You can do it this way. And then, oh two.

496
01:12:03.240 --> 01:12:03.810
Anne: Main

497
01:12:05.310 --> 01:12:08.700
Anne: And then maybe this is your CSS.

498
01:12:14.250 --> 01:12:17.670
Anne: So I don't have anything in those areas, but you get the idea.

499
01:12:18.000 --> 01:12:19.740
Eli van der Giessen: Right, and it will do all like, you know,

500
01:12:19.830 --> 01:12:23.250
Eli van der Giessen: The code markup, because it's like knows what's going on.

501
01:12:23.640 --> 01:12:30.300
Anne: exactly aligned with comments and stuff like that. So I think the best thing is to

502
01:12:34.140 --> 01:12:41.490
Anne: Away. It's really slow is to look at some of the examples. What do you guys use for code snippets.

503
01:12:46.470 --> 01:12:48.810
Eli van der Giessen: Other web developers here on the call with us today.

504
01:12:53.340 --> 01:12:55.620
Anne: No, no one else uses it. All right.

505
01:12:55.650 --> 01:12:56.070
Eli van der Giessen: I just

506
01:12:56.100 --> 01:13:03.000
Eli van der Giessen: I use a text editor. Because the moment you get to this complicated. I'm out of my depth and it's dangerous.

507
01:13:03.810 --> 01:13:04.890
Anne: Yeah yeah

508
01:13:08.250 --> 01:13:11.190
Anne: Well, this is nice. I especially like the categorizing

509
01:13:13.980 --> 01:13:14.610
Anne: That's it.

510
01:13:15.660 --> 01:13:18.090
Eli van der Giessen: Yeah, no, that's great. Thank you. Go ahead. Yeah.

511
01:13:18.750 --> 01:13:25.170
Éric M. Beaulieu: I was just about to say we use Evernote, but it's definitely this feels like Evernote on steroids.

512
01:13:25.950 --> 01:13:27.990
Anne: Oh really, okay, is a

513
01:13:28.410 --> 01:13:39.840
Éric M. Beaulieu: Global know Evernote that. Well, actually, that's the main reason why we use it. It's that it's mobile desktop Mac, Windows, Linux PC and allows shared notebooks.

514
01:13:40.140 --> 01:13:42.810
Éric M. Beaulieu: And it allows private notebooks, so

515
01:13:43.140 --> 01:13:52.980
Éric M. Beaulieu: That's the main appeal is its broad user base, and I put, you know, the application on all platforms but this one is so much better from the cold formatting perspective.

516
01:13:53.460 --> 01:13:57.660
Anne: Yeah. You can see I'm trying to find one that's, you know, very attractive.

517
01:13:57.690 --> 01:13:58.770
Anne: Yeah, color, what

518
01:13:58.800 --> 01:14:06.390
Éric M. Beaulieu: Evernote Evernote doesn't care if it's a picture of texts, you know, or code. This one understands code, which is a huge advantage.

519
01:14:06.420 --> 01:14:14.220
Anne: It does. And so, you know, the PHP color scheme will look different from the HTML, which is really nice.

520
01:14:17.340 --> 01:14:18.030
Anne: Here's one.

521
01:14:19.950 --> 01:14:34.320
Anne: You get what I mean here. So, the comments are grayed out the JavaScript, you know, it's just a nice little guide and of course the CSS is totally different. So it helps you you know just read it.

522
01:14:36.630 --> 01:14:38.070
Eli van der Giessen: Nice. That sounds good. Thank you. So

523
01:14:38.070 --> 01:14:39.390
Eli van der Giessen: Much and welcome.

524
01:14:40.950 --> 01:14:45.660
Eli van der Giessen: What do you think, who anyone else has something they want to dive in with next

525
01:14:49.620 --> 01:14:57.360
Eli van der Giessen: Well, here's the deal that I'm going to do a quick demo of things that are not as fancy as what you've already seen, but practical my day to day

526
01:14:58.530 --> 01:15:06.360
Eli van der Giessen: And then it'll be someone else's turn. So you've been you've been put on notice all of you. So I'm I am

527
01:15:07.470 --> 01:15:11.490
Eli van der Giessen: The world's worst designer. It is a sad state of affairs.

528
01:15:12.660 --> 01:15:16.800
Eli van der Giessen: But luckily there are some resources out there to save me from myself.

529
01:15:18.240 --> 01:15:27.270
Eli van der Giessen: So one of those things is a often you know you're creating something, say you're like me and you're creating you know 15 meetup events per month.

530
01:15:27.840 --> 01:15:33.120
Eli van der Giessen: So you need to create like little like a nice illustrating image. So it shows up in social media, it looks way better.

531
01:15:33.780 --> 01:15:44.040
Eli van der Giessen: You know, one of the resources you can use up there is a cycle and splash, which is basically just a free, you know, with credit email.

532
01:15:44.730 --> 01:15:54.930
Eli van der Giessen: stock photography service that a real photographers hate, but here we go. Um, and it's just like a place for you to say like, Oh, I'm looking for, like, a picture of a wave.

533
01:15:55.230 --> 01:16:10.020
Eli van der Giessen: Let me do that and you hit the search button and a Voila. Here are some images you can use for wave or stay you're looking for a picture of, I don't know, ice cream, because you really want to show off your awesome new ice cream event.

534
01:16:10.920 --> 01:16:16.020
Eli van der Giessen: kapow it's there and you really can put in any kind of ridiculous word and

535
01:16:16.650 --> 01:16:32.520
Eli van der Giessen: You can have, you know, when you download. They'll give you like the information and how you can credit the person, but it's generally pretty like generous and what you can do with the photos. So a handy resource if you just need a photo and you're not that picky.

536
01:16:34.170 --> 01:16:52.530
Eli van der Giessen: The other thing out there. And the thing I love most is there's a site called the noun project. And it basically has I icon for everything you could ever possibly imagine. So 1000 words me let's do some searches. Let's look for icons.

537
01:16:54.360 --> 01:16:55.830
Eli van der Giessen: timestamp big throw word

538
01:17:04.290 --> 01:17:06.810
Eli van der Giessen: Come on, friends, believe in here.

539
01:17:07.470 --> 01:17:09.090
Anne: So what was a dolphin.

540
01:17:09.540 --> 01:17:10.740
Eli van der Giessen: Dolphin, it is

541
01:17:13.650 --> 01:17:20.940
Eli van der Giessen: Oh, there's a whole pile of different dolphin the icons. The summer bit more stylized. Some are terrible. Some are really great

542
01:17:21.900 --> 01:17:33.000
Eli van der Giessen: But you can do this for anything in the world you want clowns. You know, you don't want this, but of course you can search for it terrifying clowns and here you go, or a robot clown.

543
01:17:33.360 --> 01:17:40.080
Eli van der Giessen: And you can do this all day long. Again you you know you can download these for free with attribution.

544
01:17:40.470 --> 01:17:46.530
Eli van der Giessen: Or you can become a member of the site. And now you can suddenly get access to any of these icons.

545
01:17:46.920 --> 01:17:55.440
Eli van der Giessen: Without having to do attribution, which is nice. It's also got some apps, there's both a desktop app that you can use to do searching with

546
01:17:55.980 --> 01:18:05.250
Eli van der Giessen: There's also one which logs like links into both Google Sheets. Sorry. Google as presentation. Everything's Google Slides is what it's called, and PowerPoint.

547
01:18:05.670 --> 01:18:16.530
Eli van der Giessen: And of course you can export them as PNG as PDFs and any kind of vector file and because of course black is not always a color you need

548
01:18:16.980 --> 01:18:28.530
Eli van der Giessen: You can put any random ridiculous color in there as well. And it just pops up the Color Picker. I put in my own brand colors and a Voila. Now I'm going to pull out

549
01:18:28.980 --> 01:18:39.690
Eli van der Giessen: And drag to my desktop. A nice little heart. Hooray. So that's something which is descended you're putting together like a PowerPoint presentation, you're like, I need a picture of

550
01:18:40.080 --> 01:18:48.000
Eli van der Giessen: Like a chart that looks really awesome. And, you know, just throw something into here and you've got a quick and dirty solution.

551
01:18:48.390 --> 01:18:53.490
Eli van der Giessen: And then finally getting a little bit less quick and dirty, so I won't go deep into it is

552
01:18:54.120 --> 01:19:08.280
Eli van der Giessen: Canada. Canada is the design tool for people who don't really know what they're doing, you know, if you're a professional, you're going to use PowerPoint and sorry. Um, what is that thing called Adobe thing. Help me out here. People

553
01:19:09.210 --> 01:19:11.370
Éric M. Beaulieu: Yeah Illustrator, InDesign.

554
01:19:11.400 --> 01:19:16.560
Eli van der Giessen: Photoshop. Thank you. Thank you. I live demos. You're always gonna blank.

555
01:19:16.920 --> 01:19:25.560
Eli van der Giessen: So, uh, so yeah, if you're a professional, you're going to use professional tools, but if you're an idiot who just needs to create something for that tweet, you're going to send out in two minutes.

556
01:19:26.130 --> 01:19:33.420
Eli van der Giessen: Well then you want something like canvas which secret few nonprofits out there, they'll give you 10 free of their pro licenses.

557
01:19:33.930 --> 01:19:42.660
Eli van der Giessen: Just because your nonprofit and you ask them, so it's super handy. And what I like is you can sort of just create up these dumb templates and then just do doing edit.

558
01:19:42.900 --> 01:19:50.160
Eli van der Giessen: But the thing I love most is they've got this idea of like the photo frame. So you'll see right here in the right is basically the circular photo frame.

559
01:19:50.520 --> 01:19:57.720
Eli van der Giessen: And what's great about that is, once you've created a template, you can just drop any photo into it and it automatically will just

560
01:19:58.140 --> 01:20:04.950
Eli van der Giessen: Throw the photo in there and then you can just adjust it. And then you're like, oh, I'm going to do another thing this time I want to have

561
01:20:05.550 --> 01:20:11.460
Eli van der Giessen: These great people in it and you drop that in. Boom. And there it is. And they just do quick adjustment.

562
01:20:12.090 --> 01:20:20.760
Eli van der Giessen: And change the text here and spit it up so you can just do a quick and dirty graphics and it's nice to just drag things in

563
01:20:21.210 --> 01:20:30.900
Eli van der Giessen: And it just shows up and it also has got these features to then say, I've got a design, could you resize that sign for design for both Facebook.

564
01:20:31.200 --> 01:20:36.900
Eli van der Giessen: And for Twitter and also for Instagram and spit out the different variants on it, it will do that for you to

565
01:20:37.320 --> 01:20:47.040
Eli van der Giessen: Maybe not perfectly, but remember you're using Canvas. You're not a professional designer, you're terrible at this work. So it's probably good enough for you. And finally,

566
01:20:47.940 --> 01:20:55.440
Eli van der Giessen: What you should do once you've got that free pro license is it's got this idea of a brand kit so you and 10 of your colleagues.

567
01:20:55.920 --> 01:21:04.140
Eli van der Giessen: And basically go in here, upload your, your logo and your brand colors and your brand fonts, which means

568
01:21:04.800 --> 01:21:19.050
Eli van der Giessen: Even when your staff are doing pretty terrible design. They're doing terrible design aligned to your brand and your look and feel. And that goes such a long way in making things look way more professional. So we go back to this file here. You're like, oh,

569
01:21:20.280 --> 01:21:28.680
Eli van der Giessen: I want to change this color here. I don't really like this yellow stripe. So I go here and change the color thing and I, of course, we change any random color in the world.

570
01:21:29.340 --> 01:21:37.380
Eli van der Giessen: But it's going to push me to say like, but what you really want to do is use one of our brand colors like, Don't be an idiot use one of these six options.

571
01:21:37.740 --> 01:21:47.400
Eli van der Giessen: And and therefore you look terrible because you're not a real designer, but it will look better than otherwise could have been. And so that's some of the magic of Canada.

572
01:21:48.210 --> 01:21:54.780
Eli van der Giessen: Again, not going to do everything for you, but it's pretty nifty. And it's also got some additional little tools in it.

573
01:21:55.200 --> 01:22:07.320
Eli van der Giessen: That will allow you to do things like here's a picture of a person erase the background. So it's just the person and it will do an okay job at that. And sometimes, okay, is just good enough says the bad designer.

574
01:22:12.000 --> 01:22:21.240
Mohammad Bashir: That's really amazing Eli You, you are a very you have your tool kit is big enough we can host another event, just for you. So

575
01:22:21.990 --> 01:22:32.460
Mohammad Bashir: Thank you. We, we had, we can save time and we can be to the many people. We can be very good designer as well. People don't know the design. So we can show up a little bit.

576
01:22:33.630 --> 01:22:39.960
Mohammad Bashir: With the answer pleasure packet with the images and the camera.

577
01:22:41.880 --> 01:22:45.480
Mohammad Bashir: I think it isn't a wants to go next to just need something to share.

578
01:22:47.130 --> 01:22:52.950
Jason Shim: Sure. I have a couple of kind of go tues for image removal

579
01:22:54.180 --> 01:23:02.910
Jason Shim: And so, remove BG has kind of emerged as being a really strong contender for just everything background. So I just sent us a sample image.

580
01:23:03.630 --> 01:23:19.740
Jason Shim: Here that you can pop in an image, and it'll use AI to essentially just remove the background in a few moments. So super handy that, you know, you don't have to load this into Photoshop or anything to to get it out.

581
01:23:20.910 --> 01:23:38.850
Jason Shim: So yeah, super, super quick. And there's also plugins that allow you to kind of batch jobs as well. So here's another sample image where you can upload an image or a phone. And I'll just block it over to immediately so super handy if you do need to do any type of design type stuff.

582
01:23:40.410 --> 01:23:44.760
Jason Shim: The other one that I show you is that this is still, I think, and kind of testing.

583
01:23:46.620 --> 01:23:51.570
Jason Shim: For it's by the same company that does every move that big. It's unscreened calm.

584
01:23:52.470 --> 01:24:08.520
Jason Shim: And it's essentially an automated green screens. So you can upload like the the examples that it gives our, our gifts. So, you know, let's say if you have one of the dog that it will actually take the just automatically and

585
01:24:09.660 --> 01:24:15.870
Jason Shim: In a few moments just block out you know the background. So very similar to remove BG but you know if for any of you.

586
01:24:16.920 --> 01:24:24.450
Jason Shim: Have a need to have video back on Moodle. This is all completely automated and kind of super handy so

587
01:24:25.590 --> 01:24:29.550
Jason Shim: Here's another example that if you want to block. When a person

588
01:24:31.050 --> 01:24:40.800
Jason Shim: That yeah it does a pretty good job. So I've been keeping an eye on this over the last little while, and I know that the early iterations were still kind of buggy, but it's

589
01:24:41.160 --> 01:24:52.860
Jason Shim: significantly improved since the kind of First time I've tested it, which would have been I think last year. Yeah, a couple of extra tools we're back on removal

590
01:24:59.940 --> 01:25:07.830
Mohammad Bashir: Wonderful. They are that's it's very helpful. Even I was not aware upon 16 dot com. It's going to help me. So thank you.

591
01:25:09.420 --> 01:25:17.850
Mohammad Bashir: Yeah, remove the background is also nice some some time, we have the pictures so that you can have it instantly done

592
01:25:20.970 --> 01:25:24.690
Mohammad Bashir: Victoria. You like to show more something or

593
01:25:29.460 --> 01:25:34.410
Victoria: To unmute myself. I don't know what to share

594
01:25:35.580 --> 01:25:41.100
Victoria: Yeah, I'm pretty sure everyone not familiar with WordPress and melching

595
01:25:42.630 --> 01:25:44.280
Victoria: So, yeah.

596
01:25:45.300 --> 01:26:07.050
Victoria: I used to really use an internet search of wild up record which is a free tool. The database management for membership, so it will stores like contacts for minis. Then the record would separate reports for membership because they use in them, sending emails, members of the contracts.

597
01:26:08.190 --> 01:26:13.530
Victoria: It compresses payments so sets among a deal for they can share

598
01:26:16.560 --> 01:26:20.340
Victoria: I can sense it in different forces while capital side in case some

599
01:26:21.780 --> 01:26:22.080
Victoria: Place.

600
01:26:22.680 --> 01:26:26.160
Mohammad Bashir: That you think that would be great. That would be helpful.

601
01:26:30.900 --> 01:26:47.280
Eli van der Giessen: Yeah. And then, like, you know, a big platform like either MailChimp or WordPress, you know, if you know we'll circle back because if there's any particular feature in there that you think is interesting to others know always happy to have you come and share that

602
01:26:57.630 --> 01:27:00.000
Éric M. Beaulieu: Can I ask a question. Is that relevant

603
01:27:05.310 --> 01:27:06.420
Eli van der Giessen: Ask away. Go for it.

604
01:27:07.680 --> 01:27:10.050
Éric M. Beaulieu: Is anybody using the Zoho platform.

605
01:27:17.040 --> 01:27:18.150
Éric M. Beaulieu: It, it's like

606
01:27:19.980 --> 01:27:26.280
Éric M. Beaulieu: Bit of a SMB, er, P. It has all sorts of stuff. Everything from

607
01:27:27.480 --> 01:27:28.680
Éric M. Beaulieu: CRM to

608
01:27:29.700 --> 01:27:34.530
Éric M. Beaulieu: Billing to accounting to mail outreach.

609
01:27:35.790 --> 01:27:40.230
Éric M. Beaulieu: And I'm just interested to see if anybody has experienced with this. We're looking at this right now.

610
01:27:46.980 --> 01:27:59.850
Eli van der Giessen: Hey it's Eli here. So I've used the CRM to do a little bit of very basic, like, you know, advanced address book kind of work. But yeah, I've haven't gone deep into the full set of features.

611
01:28:05.310 --> 01:28:09.930
Éric M. Beaulieu: Thanks, it's, it seems to be quite the ecosystem. And I'm just curious to see how

612
01:28:11.130 --> 01:28:14.670
Éric M. Beaulieu: What's the alignment between the marketing in the operation. If you see what I mean.

613
01:28:22.200 --> 01:28:29.130
Eli van der Giessen: Yeah, if people I've talked to who were at it eventually moved out simply because as they're online fundraising grew

614
01:28:29.430 --> 01:28:43.530
Eli van der Giessen: They wanted to sort of automate some of the issuing of Canadian Tax receipt. So, so that may be potentially something for you to look at is to say candidate support some of these more specific nonprofit sector use cases.

615
01:28:44.400 --> 01:28:54.000
Eli van der Giessen: But, you know, at the end of the day, I say use any CRM to start. So it's better than the spreadsheet and you can always export data later and import to whatever you need to in the future.

616
01:29:04.800 --> 01:29:11.610
Eli van der Giessen: So speaking of not real CRM. So I'm going to do a really dumb demo in my email inbox.

617
01:29:12.900 --> 01:29:24.030
Eli van der Giessen: So here we go. So a welcome to my Gmail inbox I essentially use this as my CRM. So when I'm running a conference or something like that.

618
01:29:24.750 --> 01:29:38.970
Eli van der Giessen: There's a lot of just like, oh, I really need to follow up with that potential sponsor in three weeks. Did they ever get back to me by email. And the way I do that is with this service that some of you may have run into over the years and it's called

619
01:29:41.310 --> 01:29:56.460
Eli van der Giessen: boomerang and boomerang is super nifty because it gives you just the very basics of what my CRM might be useful for without all the overhead of running up and setting up a big CRM so

620
01:29:57.480 --> 01:30:01.410
Eli van der Giessen: boomerang does some things that have since been brought into Gmail over the years.

621
01:30:01.740 --> 01:30:09.540
Eli van der Giessen: But it's got a bit more additional pieces on that. So say you want to write an email. So you're gonna write an email say to yourself, which is apparently I think I like to do

622
01:30:09.960 --> 01:30:18.450
Eli van der Giessen: And it's going to have the subject here and then I'll put in, you know, the whole bio in here and and so you can say, like, okay, whatever you want to do.

623
01:30:19.140 --> 01:30:25.380
Eli van der Giessen: You know you can like you can, I think, in based Gmail, at this point, scheduled this and sometimes super helpful to do

624
01:30:25.830 --> 01:30:34.770
Eli van der Giessen: But the thing I really love to do is you'll see this a little checkbox here that says boomerang this email in, say, one week.

625
01:30:35.730 --> 01:30:41.430
Eli van der Giessen: Two hours, something like this and then you set the case if I never get a reply.

626
01:30:41.940 --> 01:30:53.370
Eli van der Giessen: If no one ever clicked on it, or does matter. Just drop this email that I'm sending back to the top of my inbox and it's super helpful because sometimes you send someone an email and say, like,

627
01:30:53.790 --> 01:31:02.070
Eli van der Giessen: If they don't get back to me in a week I had better chase after them. And this is what boomerang is lovely at because if someone doesn't reply back. He just says

628
01:31:02.490 --> 01:31:10.020
Eli van der Giessen: Here's an email that you should follow up on again we harassed that person recent that email with like a little note at the top.

629
01:31:10.560 --> 01:31:19.050
Eli van der Giessen: And it's great because you don't have to go into a CRM and set it to do action and all that kind of overhead of running a real to do kind of system.

630
01:31:19.890 --> 01:31:31.320
Eli van der Giessen: But right there in your email. It allows you to get all these practical benefits for harassing other people to follow up on the things they said they're going to do. So that is the magic of boomerang

631
01:31:31.890 --> 01:31:41.460
Eli van der Giessen: I've used the free version because I only need to send like 10 harassing emails per month. If you want to harass people a little bit more. They'll take your money, of course.

632
01:31:49.740 --> 01:31:58.710
Eli van der Giessen: Anyone else have some kind of like follow up like to do top secret that they use. So they don't like lose these tasks and follow ups and their work.

633
01:32:01.620 --> 01:32:13.590
Anne: That's such a great question. I'm experimenting with various techniques. My latest one is to because n g. Now, to just give it a star.

634
01:32:15.090 --> 01:32:21.510
Anne: And then every so you know a couple times a day, I'll filter my star list and see

635
01:32:22.650 --> 01:32:34.170
Anne: You know what's next stolen, but this also sparks a question and me about project management tools. So maybe we could

636
01:32:35.370 --> 01:32:36.750
Anne: Talk about that next.

637
01:32:37.950 --> 01:32:46.950
Eli van der Giessen: Oh, gosh. Now I'm sure there's a lot of very strong opinions in this room around project management tools. I hate all of them. This is my take on it. But, uh,

638
01:32:48.690 --> 01:32:57.870
Eli van der Giessen: But, uh, I know I could certainly demo a couple of those. I'm going to let someone else go first on this one who this kind of project management tool that they're living in right now.

639
01:33:03.000 --> 01:33:16.590
Jason Shim: I'm currently using a teamwork for internally for for projects and I'm for some others. I use a sauna and then for some other work they do with another Oregon to use base camp. So they use all three Bay.

640
01:33:17.970 --> 01:33:27.900
Jason Shim: They're all pretty similar in terms of you know the basic functionality. I find that the the major thing for me these days is, you know, the slack integration so

641
01:33:28.590 --> 01:33:42.930
Jason Shim: When task for being completed the updates and notifications are being piped over to slack. And I think that that is generally a really important kind of elements for any of the project management tools.

642
01:33:45.780 --> 01:33:46.080
Éric M. Beaulieu: I'm

643
01:33:46.500 --> 01:33:46.980
Éric M. Beaulieu: A bit of a

644
01:33:47.550 --> 01:33:47.940
Go ahead.

645
01:33:50.730 --> 01:34:01.590
Éric M. Beaulieu: I just wanted to say a little bit of the same schizophrenia situation I'm we use base camp with some other we use Reich W RI k e

646
01:34:02.130 --> 01:34:10.830
Éric M. Beaulieu: Which is a combination between the ticketing system and project management or bit like base camp and also smart sheet, which is

647
01:34:11.370 --> 01:34:21.930
Éric M. Beaulieu: Kind of an online Microsoft Project wannabe is the best description I can give. But I don't mean that in a derogatory way I just mean that it's a lighter version of Microsoft Project

648
01:34:25.560 --> 01:34:27.780
Eli van der Giessen: So there's a million options, um,

649
01:34:28.680 --> 01:34:31.560
Éric M. Beaulieu: So Monday I forgot monday.com also which

650
01:34:32.670 --> 01:34:33.960
Éric M. Beaulieu: Which we use with a different team.

651
01:34:36.510 --> 01:34:50.700
Eli van der Giessen: And I'll add to the list to hello, which is actually what I learned in one of these. I'm kind of show and tell, events, maybe like six years ago as as another more stripped down form of this kind of project management.

652
01:34:52.080 --> 01:35:06.030
Eli van der Giessen: So no one has settled it and said, like the one true project management software that I must use is like we're all jumping around, based on the project based on what we're doing the complexity of the needs. Is that, is that right. Is that what I'm hearing

653
01:35:08.460 --> 01:35:17.130
Éric M. Beaulieu: I think one of the elements is also the number of people involved and the roles they have. So, you know, some

654
01:35:17.640 --> 01:35:25.500
Éric M. Beaulieu: I would say projects require so many different skill sets with so many people that the inherent complexity of that drives a tool.

655
01:35:25.890 --> 01:35:39.960
Éric M. Beaulieu: Whereas in some other cases, everybody in the team is more or less doing the same thing. It's just that there's a lot of people doing it. But that requires a different tools. I mean even Dropbox paper can be used for, you know, some stuff with to do's and deadlines and so on.

656
01:35:45.990 --> 01:35:56.340
Eli van der Giessen: Right. Yeah. Cuz I certainly always look at these options and i i personally also jumping between a sign off from my personal volunteer projects Reich is deep within tech soup.

657
01:35:57.030 --> 01:36:06.570
Eli van der Giessen: And I find to be too complex for from my particular case. And then for like some like smaller personal stuff I've used cello because

658
01:36:07.230 --> 01:36:17.520
Eli van der Giessen: It's simple enough that I can't mess it up. And that's, that's number one appeal to me is it I it doesn't have features and therefore I can't make it overly complex as my want

659
01:36:29.700 --> 01:36:36.450
Eli van der Giessen: Anyone else have any kind of questions around, you know, or or like sets of tools, they'd love to learn more about

660
01:36:39.990 --> 01:36:50.070
Mohammad Bashir: I'll just go back to Gmail, we can use labels like other clients or the people we do deal with Dan frequently basis, those emails can go to that.

661
01:36:51.270 --> 01:36:55.530
Mohammad Bashir: Particular label and we can just access from there, we come back.

662
01:36:56.880 --> 01:36:57.330
Yeah.

663
01:36:58.350 --> 01:37:00.810
Eli van der Giessen: Right. So that's another good Gmail chip.

664
01:37:04.470 --> 01:37:18.000
Anne: Yeah, I mean, recently, a couple of clients still using Yahoo have been complaining about the ads. What can I do and I say switch out of Yahoo.

665
01:37:18.900 --> 01:37:32.400
Anne: Because I made the switch years ago and it's like apples and, you know, oranges, it's just two different things to different experiences and Gmail is just far superior, I think.

666
01:37:32.670 --> 01:37:33.060
Mm hmm.

667
01:37:34.980 --> 01:37:46.800
Eli van der Giessen: Now if you want to be truly smug, I always feel like the next step up from that is to, you know, basically, get your own domain name and therefore truly own your email for the long term.

668
01:37:47.220 --> 01:37:56.670
Eli van der Giessen: I think what else followed that path of like setting up email on your own domain name. So you could like hopped whatever service you want long term, but your email address will always be yours.

669
01:37:57.300 --> 01:37:58.560
Anne: Oh yeah, definitely.

670
01:38:00.870 --> 01:38:08.190
Victoria: He actually used the channel for the non for profits and he was a domain and Cindy, you see.

671
01:38:09.090 --> 01:38:19.920
Victoria: It she speaks very much Amanda choose it for nonprofits. We usually to get the domain names that the purchase and you can integrate. So we have now seen Chanel is

672
01:38:20.400 --> 01:38:31.740
Victoria: Has a personal domain. So that's kind of nice because everyone's got their own email in, in our organization region person before

673
01:38:32.370 --> 01:38:48.780
Victoria: When general chameleons and I will be directed to someone else will use our personal emails so everyone good service now specific email. It's a domain, which is nice, but at the same time, it's kind of sometimes he says, just use my own

674
01:38:52.080 --> 01:38:58.170
Eli van der Giessen: But I actually think that's so important to move organizations into something like G sweet for your own domain name.

675
01:38:58.440 --> 01:39:04.170
Eli van der Giessen: I see this all the time where you have a nonprofit that own the domain name and you know that because they have a website.

676
01:39:04.590 --> 01:39:13.500
Eli van der Giessen: And yet they're still using, like, you know, a shared Google or hot sweet email address, you know, and it will say to those organizations.

677
01:39:14.280 --> 01:39:22.380
Eli van der Giessen: When you're applying for a grant and you're applying with your scrappy little Hotmail address and the other organization has an email address on their own domain name.

678
01:39:22.710 --> 01:39:28.890
Eli van der Giessen: Which one of you feels more fly by night. Which one of you feels like it kind of organization, the funder wants to engage with

679
01:39:29.790 --> 01:39:44.700
Eli van der Giessen: Plus. Now you can like, you know, start passing things out to your volunteers and your board members, which means when people leave your organization, you are losing all your data. So I think Victoria your organization has made some really smart moves in sort of moving towards hosted email.

680
01:39:48.390 --> 01:39:52.350
Victoria: Mission is new. So it's recently celebrated 10 years

681
01:39:52.890 --> 01:40:01.620
Victoria: There's definitely kind of shows also some Developmental Services session and what they just absolutely I think interact with someone, but I'm going to finish my thought creepy.

682
01:40:02.070 --> 01:40:12.600
Victoria: And what I liked about the choose it from photography said every email gets a good amount of storage like the email comes with its own drive

683
01:40:13.050 --> 01:40:25.350
Victoria: And every email it gets like twice as much as he will get with it literature now so I can just start even just a new email just to start on staff on its assets kinda nice.

684
01:40:30.600 --> 01:40:33.990
Éric M. Beaulieu: I was just about to mention something you alluded to Eli.

685
01:40:35.040 --> 01:40:54.600
Éric M. Beaulieu: Using our own domain also facilitates access control to resources so that if somebody if you have volunteers that are roles, instead of people, or if you have people that leave the organization, you can, it's easier to either transfer ownership. If it's a it's an email you control.

686
01:40:58.770 --> 01:41:08.940
Eli van der Giessen: I think that's, yeah. Another useful tip, you know, new just actually need to you know get past the technical hurdle of setting things up, you know, going into DNS servers and

687
01:41:09.390 --> 01:41:19.920
Eli van der Giessen: All that terrifying stuff like setting a name and see name records see every time I do it, I sweat a little bit and pray that you know that in a couple hours when it all propagates it actually worked.

688
01:41:29.220 --> 01:41:37.770
Eli van der Giessen: So we're coming up to, you know, an hour and a half into this event, you know, we don't need to keep you here until the bitter end, of course.

689
01:41:38.790 --> 01:41:44.430
Eli van der Giessen: But if you've got, you know, something you still want to share. I think we've definitely got another 10 minutes is

690
01:41:45.810 --> 01:41:49.170
Eli van der Giessen: What do you think, Who else has got something they want to throw up on the wall.

691
01:41:59.820 --> 01:42:02.340
Jason Shim: Oh, I'll put to Zapier up there.

692
01:42:03.420 --> 01:42:18.180
Jason Shim: In terms of connecting different apps that API er com so it's going to go to for just being able to kind of bridge the gap between, like, if you don't necessarily have a in Hampstead for

693
01:42:19.470 --> 01:42:25.620
Jason Shim: someone to help you to connect API is, you know, the next best thing. I think it's those a pure. Yeah, pretty much connect anything to anything so

694
01:42:26.520 --> 01:42:39.570
Jason Shim: Whether it be you know slack or MailChimp or, you know, some of you some fundraising software connects to it as well. You can like fire off all sorts of triggers and notifications and it just makes your life easier, and

695
01:42:40.830 --> 01:42:41.340
Jason Shim: Faster.

696
01:42:41.910 --> 01:42:45.420
Eli van der Giessen: Give us give us a use case, like, what's an example of how you use it.

697
01:42:46.740 --> 01:42:58.110
Jason Shim: So use case would be let's say if I gift comes in. So the, the platform that we use currently on a website is called fundraise up then. So they have a Zapier integration. So when a

698
01:42:58.890 --> 01:43:07.710
Jason Shim: When a gift comes in and they meet certain parameters, then we will route it into our Slack channel and then it'll be it'll look at the

699
01:43:08.460 --> 01:43:21.330
Jason Shim: The parameters of the gift and depending on the parameters, it'll actually routed to specific channels to notify our fundraisers of that particular gift or if another you know if it's

700
01:43:22.380 --> 01:43:36.720
Jason Shim: Some action that needs to be taken when someone submits some content to our site. It'll, you know, send a notification off to our CRM, as well as, you know, post a notification that someone has submitted something new. So it, it really just allows you do

701
01:43:38.010 --> 01:43:39.510
Jason Shim: If you can verbalize it.

702
01:43:40.530 --> 01:43:44.730
Jason Shim: The what you would like. Chances are, you can probably build it in Xavier

703
01:43:47.160 --> 01:43:56.460
Eli van der Giessen: Yeah, and it does have all these quite sophisticated, but actually kind of visual and simple filters to say if it matches this criteria do this other thing.

704
01:43:57.360 --> 01:44:10.830
Eli van der Giessen: So, so this is kind of what it looks like. And I think it's this is definitely like the kind of thing that will make you seem like like a wizard, and I have logged into the wrong account. So that's not going to help me.

705
01:44:12.990 --> 01:44:30.690
Eli van der Giessen: That's not the right ones. Um, so, uh, so, but ya know it's super powerful. And actually, here's one thing I do want to share because I think this is the other thing that makes me 100% happier in this world. And this is basically my desert island tool is called calland Lee and it

706
01:44:31.200 --> 01:44:42.000
Eli van der Giessen: Was the problem of people trying to book you for meetings because nothing is more disheartening in this world than five back and forth emails to saying like, are you available at 230 on Wednesday.

707
01:44:42.420 --> 01:44:59.280
Eli van der Giessen: How about to 45 on Wednesday, and like, oh no, sorry, I meant a different time zone when I was talking about that to 45 and it is totally frustrated. So if you're like me and talk with people across the globe constantly. This is gonna save your life. And it looks like this.

708
01:45:02.490 --> 01:45:10.440
Eli van der Giessen: And basically send people link and say, like us, just select some time and it talks to your calendar, whether that be Google or

709
01:45:10.950 --> 01:45:20.160
Eli van der Giessen: Or your Outlook calendar so you can sort of make sure it doesn't like you know overbook something's you say like, Oh, someone's like, oh, I want to talk to you. Like I'm available on the 15th.

710
01:45:20.910 --> 01:45:28.530
Eli van der Giessen: And like yeah actually 10:45am Pacific time. Okay. That works for me. I say, yep.

711
01:45:29.070 --> 01:45:41.340
Eli van der Giessen: And they fill in the information and I scheduled the event and the magic is that event is now added to my calendar with a reminder to that person that they stood there for like show up. So it's also added to their own personal calendar.

712
01:45:42.810 --> 01:45:53.040
Eli van der Giessen: And and now no one else can book that time and you can like set all kinds of rules around it like, leave me a 15 minute gap before and after all meeting so I never have to straight back to back meetings.

713
01:45:53.490 --> 01:46:01.350
Eli van der Giessen: And you can also set up multiple calendars. So I've got a private link that I use for evening bookings. If someone say, you know, Australia wants to talk to me.

714
01:46:01.650 --> 01:46:12.570
Eli van der Giessen: And another one which is available for people in Europe. So you know I wake up early on a Tuesday that talk with people in Europe or Africa. And so it's hold the magic.

715
01:46:13.680 --> 01:46:29.250
Eli van der Giessen: And will save you all sorts of grief. It's not the only tool in the world that will do this. But if you schedule meetings with anyone in the world. Take a look at these kinds of tools because it will make you look like a superstar and save you all of the tears in the world.

716
01:46:35.460 --> 01:46:45.600
Éric M. Beaulieu: I use doodle for the same purpose. There's a version to connect multiple personal calendars to give visibility to others on your calendar to book appointments

717
01:46:48.060 --> 01:46:48.480
Eli van der Giessen: Set

718
01:46:48.510 --> 01:47:01.050
Eli van der Giessen: Yeah, I'm also a paid member of doodle as well for my multi person meetings because yes because I still one thing currently doesn't do well is to bring people like multiple parties together. Yeah. So tell me more about I use doodle.

719
01:47:02.730 --> 01:47:09.720
Éric M. Beaulieu: For both both purposes we just talked about. So multi people scheduling works really well, especially

720
01:47:10.140 --> 01:47:19.740
Éric M. Beaulieu: With the nonprofit environment. We're not everybody's in the same contacts that some people are in Google Mail Google Calendar. Some people use Outlook. Some people use their own private calendars.

721
01:47:20.040 --> 01:47:29.760
Éric M. Beaulieu: So this facilitates cross system calendaring. So that's the one use case because I personally, for example, have emails in six organizations.

722
01:47:30.090 --> 01:47:44.370
Éric M. Beaulieu: So instead of having to look at six different calendars people that don't know that I have calendars and six organizations connect to my doodle. And then they see my consolidated availability, so that's that's a good use case for me.

723
01:47:45.060 --> 01:47:51.990
Eli van der Giessen: Right, so you could bring all those calendars from different services into one place that's super interesting.

724
01:47:52.590 --> 01:48:06.000
Eli van der Giessen: I'm hacking my life a slightly different way. I use Zapier to basically copy my Google events in my Google Calendar to my work calendar. So I have some level of sinking between them to, again, avoid that kind of

725
01:48:06.360 --> 01:48:11.430
Eli van der Giessen: Booking but it's deeply imperfect. I think what you're talking about. Seems like a smoother process.

726
01:48:13.650 --> 01:48:15.300
Éric M. Beaulieu: While we're in technical things

727
01:48:16.500 --> 01:48:31.650
Éric M. Beaulieu: Another tool that it is a little bit technical to setup, but it's called next cloud. It's a very economical way to set up a shared group where platform to give you a Dropbox functionality and exchange functionalities.

728
01:48:33.360 --> 01:48:40.590
Éric M. Beaulieu: It's available in Vancouver at digital ocean as a hosted system. It's a virtual appliance. You just have to pay for

729
01:48:41.070 --> 01:48:52.200
Éric M. Beaulieu: Connectivity and it's like $25 a month and it gives you, you know, then you have to pay for storage. But it gives you a fairly comprehensive features in terms of

730
01:48:53.040 --> 01:49:06.240
Éric M. Beaulieu: You know, managing a small team or even, you know, some larger teams with all the basic bells and whistles of email calendar shared workspaces secure shared workspaces, as opposed to some of the

731
01:49:06.720 --> 01:49:18.420
Éric M. Beaulieu: pretty expensive ways of doing it with Dropbox or box so box is good when you're up to 10 people because of the nonprofit discounts. But when you go over that next cloud is something a little cat.

732
01:49:19.560 --> 01:49:34.290
Eli van der Giessen: And I'm looking actually at the organizations that are using it. And there's a lot of European organizations, and I suspect because of that cell posting it means they can bypass. A lot of the GDPR and data residency concerns that are especially big in Europe.

733
01:49:35.100 --> 01:49:45.300
Éric M. Beaulieu: Yeah, and it's also very powerful in terms of secure end to end. So that also talks to a lot of the regulatory and compliance obligations and it has a built in.

734
01:49:45.690 --> 01:49:57.510
Éric M. Beaulieu: Word and Excel. They use only office built in. So even if you don't give or delegate LICENSES TO PEOPLE. THEY CAN STILL edit open and save Office documents. It's built in.

735
01:50:01.500 --> 01:50:11.850
Eli van der Giessen: Cool. That sounds really interesting because you say, like, you know, you're going to get my geeky friend to come join me on that one, because like that journey looks a little bit fraud to me.

736
01:50:16.860 --> 01:50:21.480
Eli van der Giessen: Awesome. Anyone else want to do one last thing, or shall we bring us to a wrap. What do you think

737
01:50:34.020 --> 01:50:45.240
Eli van der Giessen: Great, then I think if we feel like, you know, we come to a natural close Mohammed, why don't you give us like, you know, a rousing goodbye. As we sort of come to the end of the day.

738
01:50:48.120 --> 01:50:59.490
Mohammad Bashir: I like to thank everyone everybody shared their own what they were using and some of the tools I will. I did, I did not know before so that helped me and

739
01:51:00.210 --> 01:51:18.930
Mohammad Bashir: My I was able to share the tools. So that's even more fulfilling for me as well. So I assume you are you all feel the same way. And please feel free to come by. Again, and comment if you get some time you find some tools which are helpful and we share this

740
01:51:20.280 --> 01:51:35.700
Mohammad Bashir: Light is solid live on facebook so that we have it and we will shape the, I hope, Eli is very regular on he's very good at sending the next follow up thing that he shared some tools and we will also

741
01:51:37.170 --> 01:51:50.580
Mohammad Bashir: The post a link in the meetup as well. So we have a link their blog link and I really appreciate it. Again, I really appreciate everyone's time because that is as

742
01:51:51.780 --> 01:51:54.180
Mohammad Bashir: Time is life. So yeah, that's very important.

743
01:51:56.430 --> 01:51:56.910
Mohammad Bashir: Thank you.

744
01:51:58.800 --> 01:52:06.930
Eli van der Giessen: I feel this. And again, thank you so much for everyone for staying on during the evening and and sharing their expertise.

745
01:52:08.070 --> 01:52:19.290
Eli van der Giessen: This is what this community is all about super geeks came together and and showing off like all the little tricks. They've got to make our lives just a little bit easier and a little bit more fun.

746
01:52:22.320 --> 01:52:24.270
Anne: Thank you, everybody. That was great.

747
01:52:26.040 --> 01:52:27.180
Jason Shim: For this one,

748
01:52:28.380 --> 01:52:29.220
Éric M. Beaulieu: Thanks.

749
01:52:29.520 --> 01:52:31.890
Eli van der Giessen: Okay, perfect. Ciao Ciao friends see you all.
