Update on the ActivityOwner.Com MindManager Add-ins

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

I wanted to provide an update on my project of converting tools on the activityowner.com site to MindManager Add-ins. The wiki.activityowner.com now has three independent stand-alone add-ins installs with domains that point to them: http://wiki.activityowner.com/index.php?title=MindReader, http://wiki.activityowner.com/index.php?title=Mark_Task_Complete http://map2excel.com, and of course http://wiki.activityowner.com/index.php?title=OutLinker. Each add-in is really stand-alone now and will be less intimidating for new users […]

Send an OutLook Message to a New Project Map

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Often times the first step in processing an email request is to define a dedicated project map to attack it. The latest version of OutLinker has a new send to "New Project" map option.

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

I'm working on improving my Next Action Analysis (NAA) score this week and am faced with a "Project Needing Next Action" penalty for my "Create Macro to Sync up Dashboard to OutLook Task List" project. This was a reader requested script I finished up a few days ago. It looks like the next action it […]

ThreadZoom

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

When you are faced with 100 messages in Microsoft OutLook, it will often be due to the presence of several conversations spread across the Inbox with various entries containing different replies and different attachments. Your first step in processing may be to thin the the list down to only the most recent messages in each […]

OutLinker Contexts

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

I thought it was done, but one last someday/maybe feature creeped into OutLinker last evening. OutLinker now has buttons to allow you to set the context for the task associated with the message quickly. Note that the contexts assigned with the buttons (or by just putting the @context in the next action) are now automatically […]
