Welcome to Monday Productivity Pointers! The goal of the course is to find a more direct way to do something you’re already doing.
Today, I’m focusing on keyboard shortcuts for YouTube.

A long time ago in Monday Productivity Pointers, I posted a video about a fantastic remote desktop connection app called Crossloop. It was fast, it was easy, and there was absolutely nothing not to love about it. Using a desktop PC, Mac, or tablet, you could easily connect to someone else’s computer and either view it or remote control it.
A few months ago, the makers of Crossloop shut off the service. But today on Monday Productivity Pointers, I bring you a suitable alternative called join.me.

Lots of offices have calendar scheduling systems in place, like Outlook, Google, or Lotus Notes. If you want to schedule a meeting, you can add your list of invitees and see when they’re all available to schedule it. It’s an easy process.
What’s not so easy is when you need to schedule a meeting for a group of people who aren’t on a unified calendar scheduling app.
You know what happens next: The emails start flying around with everyone listing dates they’re available, and dates they’re not. It’s nearly impossible for everyone to wade through each other’s typed-out schedules to find a single date and time when everyone is free—and by the time you find it, one of the guests has suddenly become unavailable again.
In this week’s Monday Productivity Pointers, I’ll show you a website that can help with this process.

A few weeks ago, I showed you how to download your Facebook timeline to your computer. This week on Monday Productivity Pointers, I’ll show you a similar feature in Twitter.

Songs tend to vanish from iPhones. It’s a complaint I hear quite a lot from my friends and have even noticed myself. A song is there for months—and then one day you’ll sync with iTunes and for some reason, it’s just not there anymore.
This week on Monday Productivity Pointers, I’ll show you a quick way to get that song back on your phone—without having to go back to iTunes on a desktop or re-sync your phone—so you can be rocking out again in no time.

Every once in a while on Monday Productivity Pointers, I go over something you may already be aware of—but could use a reminder about. It’s that moment when you recall: Something I use every day has some really cool features and I should be taking advantage of them!
This week I’m talking about Google Labs, particularly the Labs in your Google calendar.
