Three Great Quick Tips

1. Stunning Smartphone Trick
Did you know you can create keyboard shortcuts? By this I mean tapping in an acronym and having it replaced with a longer series of text? I.E. you save lots of time typing. The iPhone comes with omw built in for on my way. You can use if for bank acct. numbers, phrases, addresses, etc. My brilliant daughter Samantha suggested using it instead of repeatedly typing in long streams of hashtags when posting to Instagram. Brilliant!!!!

  • iPhone: Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement
  • Samsung Galaxy Note >Settings >Language & Input > Samsung Keyboard > Hot Keys
  • Android > Settings > Language & Input >Personal dictionary. Select a language or choose the “For all languages” option. (Note: the exact settings may differ depending on the make and model of your Android phone.). Tap the “+” sign in the top-right corner of the screen.

2. Gmail Has Drag & Drop Too!!!

Want to apply a label to an email? Drag it over the email and drop.

Want to move emails from the default Inbox label to ones you've set up? Select the email and drag/drop into the label. It will then apply that label and re3move it from showing in your default Inbox

  1. Use voice commands to take a photo/video. Open the camera>click the gear>click the three dots>Select Voice Control. To take photos: say either smile, cheese, capture or Shoot. Say ''record videos'' to do just that.

3. Health & Wellbeing - Inexpensive Yoghurt
If you like yoghurt but not the cost, I’d like to share such an easy trick with you. If you have one of those insulated yoghurt makers, you don’t need to buy the packaged mixes.

Simply save 2-3 Tablespoons of live cultures from a batch. To make your new litre of yoghurt, mix ¾ cup of milk powder (skim or regular) with the culture. I add 1.5 tablespoons of sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla essence. Mix with the water in the container and then put with the boiled water bath in the maker. 12 hours later you’ve got your lovely, inexpensive yoghurt. The more of the live culture you add – such as 3-4 tablespoons, the firmer your yoghurt will be.

Get More Done In Less Time - Outlook OR Gmail Training
Please don't forget if you'd like to conquer your email and learn how to become a master of communication; sales; customer service - why not grab a group of colleagues and have me come in to run a customised small group training session. We only need a minimum of 8 people. This is especially great if you are self-employed. You'll learn amazing shortcuts that you never knew existed.
