Geek of the Week: Evernote

Product Name: Evernote

Which Team Uses It: Content Team

Why We Get Geeked: We use Evernote for all kinds of notes: project or meeting notes, checklists for tasks, and more. It’s a lot better than using built-in apps like Notes or TextEdit because It’s easy to organize your notes using the Notebook feature. My notebooks include: Blog Posts, Time Tracker, Personal, Tasks, and project-specific notebooks. You can also tag your notes to organize them too. Evernote also offers a mobile app to sync your notes to different devices. With the free version, you are limited to two devices. You can also share notes with others, which is great for team projects. There’s also a presentation mode so you can show your notes as slides in a meeting setting. (It’s a premium feature, but you can try it for 30 days)

Price/Investment: Evernote has a free basic plan, plus plan, (4/mo) and a premium plan. ($9/mo) The basic plan includes two devices, a passcode lock, and you can share notes with other people. The plus plan includes unlimited devices, offline access, and the presentation mode. The premium plan includes forward emails into Evernote, advanced search and history capabilities, and more.

Where/How You Can Get It: You can Download Evernote for Mac or Windows on their official website.

Geek of the Week: Slack

Product Name: Slack

Which Team Uses It: All Graydient members

Why We Get Geeked: As a team with different schedules and multiple projects happening at a time, it was essential for us to have a communication app so we could all stay connected and on the same page. We use slack for our daily standups, (a report on what we worked on the previous day, what we’ll be working on the current day, any roadblocks, and if we are in the office or not) for projects, and for general team conversation. We set up rooms for specific projects so that everyone stays up to date on changes, and team members can ask for help with parts of the project, testing, etc. It also has a direct message system, so if you need to get ahold of a specific teammate, you can do so instantly rather than waiting on an email.

Price/Investment: Slack is available for free, and there is also standard ($8/mo) and plus ($15/mo) options for bigger teams that need more features like customer support, video calls, custom user groups, and more file storage.

Where/How You Can Get It: You can Download Slack for Mac or Windows on their official website.
