This week MacSparky is sponsored by TextExpander. While TextExpander is a fantastic personal productivity tool, it’s even more helpful for teams. With TextExpander team accounts, everyone can access, search, and share common snippets. You can have your best writers prepare your snippets, and everyone can use them on multiple platforms: macOS, iOS, Windows, and the web.
I am a TextExpander for teams subscriber. While my team is pretty small–just two people–TextExpander for teams has been extremely helpful the last few days as you guys have been flooding me with requests to transition your video courses to the new learn.MacSparky site. To solve this problem, I updated the links and codes in the shared TextExpander library so my assistant could get up-to-date information. As I was updating the links and information, she wasn’t even aware of the changes. She could still use the same snippets to send out the customer emails that are now magically updated.
As a result, I was able to make this transition more efficiently. And that is with just a team of two people. Imagine if you had 100 people using TextExpander. If you're on a team, TextExpander will change your life, leaving more time for what you do best. For larger teams, TextExpander supports Single Sign-On (SSO) and grouping accounts to make on-boarding a breeze.
If you are on a team, you should consider implementing TextExpander to make you more productive. To learn more head over to TextExpander.com and let them know you heard about it at MacSparky.
