We all know that feeling of heading into the office first thing in the morning, and trying to figure out how you’re going to fit everything in before the end of the day – only to be greeted with another list of things just as important as the last.
We all know that feeling of heading into the office first thing in the morning, and trying to figure out how you’re going to fit everything in before the end of the day – only to be greeted with another list of things just as important as the last. Managing and deciphering this information can turn into as much of a job as completing the work itself.
You may have heard about how Mohiomap can increase productivity, but do you know how? Over the past year we’ve come up with our own little tips and tricks that we use here at Mohiomap, and would like to share our top 3 simple tricks that make us more productive, and hopefully you’ll find them just as useful!
Stay in control of your meetings
As much as we like to stay on agenda in meetings, we sometimes end up jumping around from topic to topic, and can even miss valuable information if we’re busy trying to find the right to-do list to record the meeting outcomes.
Mohiomap (together with the apps that we integrate with) is a great tool to instantly record and visualize the ideas and topics that are being raised, without having to spend valuable time sifting through lists.
1. Create a new notebook or folder with the title for the meeting (You can create a new folder in any of our supported platforms, Evernote, Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box)
2. Add a couple of notes or folders for the different topics being discussed or the dates of the meetings – sometimes if we’re really pressed for time we just create one new “To-do’” folder
3. Starting adding notes or documents into the folders you created. Because of their structure, you can quickly see what folders you created and all of the notes that sit in and around those folders.
After the meeting is over, you can see an overview of everything discussed, and even jump straight into getting the work done from there.
Conquer your task lists
Thanks to the genius of Evernote, you’ve probably got a good system already sorted for making sure you get done what you need to; but things often get a little stuck when trying to decide what’s most important or when you’ve got multiple lists saved in different places – in fact, it can be near impossible. Our next tip is ideal for those of you who are avid list makers but struggle with prioritizing which to do first.
1. Connect your platforms in Mohiomap (Evernote is our go-to for creating lists)
2. Start adding tags to your various lists using our drag-and-drop tagging system. You can quickly and easily see the connections between your lists, and maybe even find some lists that you completely forgot about – oh and it’s ridiculously fun to use.
Using tags is a great way to organise your lists visually and help you see the priority of the lists, topics, status, etc. – whatever works best for you!
Now you no longer need to spend time trying to recall the lists you’ve created and try and decide which one to tackle first – by having an instant overview you can make informed decisions faster. You could even take it a step further by adding reminders to your map
Save maps for later use
The final tip we’d like to share with you is one of your premium features that we just can’t live without – it’s called the Unlimited Bookmarked Maps.
With Mohiomap Premium you are not limited to 3 bookmarks. In fact, you can bookmark as many maps as you like.
Bookmarking maps allows you to return to previously saved maps to help you with getting on with your work much quicker! Accessing an unlimited number of maps means you don't have to decide which maps you do or don't need, you are free to have any number of maps, making Mohiomap work even more for you!
Say goodbye to foraging around your cloud documents to find notes or files you can’t remember where you saved – access your data faster so you can spend more time on getting the work done, instead of trying to find it.
