rsidneysmith #Productivity Success: I tackled a big project on my list this past week. It took clearly all decks to get it done, but worth it. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:09:42 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q1: What are the sizes are your current digital productivity tools? #prodchat https://t.co/rTIWXukxAw Thu Jul 06 00:10:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A1: 5.5″ smartphone, 8″ mobile tablet, and 11″ and 13″ MBAirs, plus two 15″ HP laptops, and a few other PCs with 17-24″ monitors. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:11:39 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A1: Phone 2.5 x 5; tablet 8×5, desktop screen 26×11 #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:11:55 +0000 2017

nmhouston @rsidneysmith that’s a lot of screens! ;) #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:12:34 +0000 2017
drjlwells @rsidneysmith A1. iPhone 6 Plus & MacBook Air. Big small screen and small big screen! #ProdChat Thu Jul 06 00:12:56 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston It seems like a lot, but they’re spread among several locations, so I only have a few of each…typically. ;) #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:13:34 +0000 2017
BLGBusiness A1: iphone 6S, 13″ MBPro, 27″ TV as a second monitor :) #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:13:51 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @BLGBusiness Welcome to #prodchat, Brandi. Glad you could make it! :) How’re you today? Thu Jul 06 00:14:15 +0000 2017
drjlwells #ProdChat A1. Would love to add 10.5″iPad Pro if anyone has one to give away! 😉 Thu Jul 06 00:14:18 +0000 2017
nmhouston A1: My usual screens: desktop monitor I think is 26 or 28, 11-in laptop, 8-in tablet, 5-in phone. Plus another desktop at work. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:14:28 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q2: Do you use a single, dual or triple monitor setup for your main computer/laptop? Why? #prodchat https://t.co/Vcpq07AtJD Thu Jul 06 00:15:00 +0000 2017
PG_pmp @rsidneysmith A1; 15 ” thinkpad with 32 gb RAM & samsung mobile… #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:15:50 +0000 2017
drjlwells #ProdChat A2. Single, usually w/ apps in full-screen mode. Focus on one thing at a time &—just like inboxes—try to keep it simple. Thu Jul 06 00:16:24 +0000 2017
nmhouston A2 I’ve only ever used a single monitor set up. Because I’m old skool. Interested to learn from those with dual. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:16:43 +0000 2017
BLGBusiness A2: Dual in my office, but I like to move around the house and work on the go so then single. Probably 50/50. #prodchat. Thu Jul 06 00:16:46 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A2: I have a single (very wide) monitor, but with software the splits the screen. Mimics dual monitors. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:16:58 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2: Currently, I’m usually working on a single screen setup, with phone and tablet on stands as 2nd & 3rd screen options. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:17:07 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2a: When I’m actually at my main office, I do like the large single screen monitor for data entry tasks between apps. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:17:46 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2a: When I’m actually at my main office, I do like the large single screen monitor for data entry tasks between apps. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:17:46 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A2: I used dual monitors for over 10 years. It allows me to work on one thing while referring to something else. Saves printing. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:17:47 +0000 2017
drjlwells I’ll use split-screen Spaces on my MBA, but usually just to have PDF/text file next to each other for copying & pas… https://t.co/pprZsEkIRI Thu Jul 06 00:19:13 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2b: In my real estate/legal days, I had a KVM (keyboard/video/mouse) switch on a single large monitor connected to multiple PCs. #ProdChat Thu Jul 06 00:19:18 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2c: I think I like that setup the most because I could focus on one task without losing track of other tasks in other software. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:19:37 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q3: Do you feel like your smartphone screen is large enough for your productivity needs? Why, or why not? #prodchat https://t.co/318dcBcYud Thu Jul 06 00:20:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A3: For most tasks on the road, yes, except heavy email. I simply prefer to handle email on a full-sized physical keyboard. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:21:14 +0000 2017
BLGBusiness @rsidneysmith Good! My Wednesdays cleared up so I can participate in #prodchat more regularly! Thu Jul 06 00:21:18 +0000 2017
drjlwells A3. #ProdChat Screen size is fine, but UI lacking. Need mouse/keyboard shortcuts to be as effective. Great for mark… https://t.co/GwHL5wySsy Thu Jul 06 00:21:26 +0000 2017
nmhouston @drjlwells Agree, I tend to work best with one thing in front of me at a time. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:21:29 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A3: I don’t try to do serious work on the phone screen. Great for voice input and quick access on the go. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:21:59 +0000 2017
drjlwells #ProdChat Same here! Triage/quick replies w/ iPhone, draft & full replies w/ MBA. https://t.co/bHQDuf9NH1 Thu Jul 06 00:22:25 +0000 2017
drjlwells RT @nmhouston: @drjlwells Agree, I tend to work best with one thing in front of me at a time. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:22:36 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A3: I agree with @rsidneysmith about wanting to handle email on a full-size keyboard and monitor. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:22:48 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @drjlwells You might find this interesting, Jeremy, https://t.co/5IjxjTgfos #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:23:44 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A3a: I admit I spend more time than I’d like to admit capturing moments between flights or meetings on Twitter/YouTube on my phone.#prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:24:41 +0000 2017
drjlwells Yeah that’s… interesting. #ProdChat https://t.co/qo44a2kDwt Thu Jul 06 00:24:58 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q4: If you do a good amount of mobile tablet work, do you feel like that screen size is sufficient? #prodchat https://t.co/hpGQ8PQvO9 Thu Jul 06 00:25:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A3b: So for that reason, it’s really productive in helping me whittle away at my large YouTube Watch Later list! #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:25:07 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @drjlwells Hahaha. Aside from the wonky website, my understanding is that it’s pretty slick. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:25:40 +0000 2017
nmhouston A3 For me the phone is great for social media, light weight browsing. Screen size not an issue. Prefer twitter on the phone. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:25:57 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A4: I recently changed tablets to a 8″ screen and love the smidgen of extra screen real estate. It’s great, and… #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:26:32 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A4a: I can power through email with my Bluetooth keyboard paired. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:26:52 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Sorry about the incorrect Twitter image! #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:27:15 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck Q4: I use the tablet more for consumption than creation. However, it has as much or more to do with input as screen size. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:27:22 +0000 2017
BLGBusiness A3: For social media, reading, podcasts – yes. For everything else my phone would be my last resort. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:27:30 +0000 2017
drjlwells Trying to think of any apps I prefer on iPhone over MBA… Maybe @Feedly? My favorite UI on my iPhone. #ProdChat https://t.co/OSXLUTbi6h Thu Jul 06 00:27:41 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Oh, it seems all the Twitter images are wrong! HA! Please disregard the Twitter images and just read the tweets’ text. Sorry. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:28:02 +0000 2017
nmhouston A4 I use my tablet mostly for reading/annotating PDFs, which it’s perfect for. I tend to assign certain tasks to certain devices. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:28:34 +0000 2017
BLGBusiness A4: tablet screen size is fine, but a real keyboard attachment is a must! #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:28:41 +0000 2017
drjlwells Big debate today: can an iPad replace a laptop? Seems only w/ external keyboard. #ProdChat https://t.co/I84mhNN0nW Thu Jul 06 00:29:23 +0000 2017
BLGBusiness @drjlwells @feedly Yes – I always prefer to use the @feedly app vs desktop (unless I’m adding new feeds) #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:29:48 +0000 2017

drjlwells RT @rsidneysmith: @nmhouston @drjlwells @feedly MacBook Air #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:32:11 +0000 2017
nmhouston @rsidneysmith yes, it helps because then you have the environmental cue of the device for triggering certain mental states #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:32:30 +0000 2017
drjlwells @rsidneysmith @nmhouston @RaulPacheco has a great system for reading/analyzing articles #ProdChat Thu Jul 06 00:32:56 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A5: Shortly, voice (transcribed or audio) messages are good on my smartphone. I find everything else is better on a larger device. #ProdChat Thu Jul 06 00:33:02 +0000 2017

rsidneysmith A6b: Video-chatting with my baby niece. She’s much cuter on the tablet than on my smartphone screen! Hehe. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:36:57 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A6c: I also use my tablet to be my task list manager throughout the day. As I’m working I check my tasks off there. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:37:28 +0000 2017

rsidneysmith @drjlwells @evernote @feedly I love my @feedly, but it’s one input spigot for scanning articles I want to read later. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:45:55 +0000 2017
prodbookgrp Join us for our next #Productivity Book Group live discussion! https://t.co/n14akGBB5E #prodchat https://t.co/A3gkiJbGST Thu Jul 06 00:46:01 +0000 2017
drjlwells #ProdChat @Evernote users: Slightly off topic, but: tags or notebooks? 😏 Thu Jul 06 00:46:36 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A7 My phone = public transportation, it does the job when needed. My laptop = my car, w/ bells & whistles & I’m in control. #ProdChat Thu Jul 06 00:46:41 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A8: I believe that resolution (DPI) and ergonomics are huge factors! If the screen size seems unnatural to the task, no bueno. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:47:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @drjlwells @evernote Both! ;-) As soon as I’ve published on this topic, I will explain more in detail! #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:47:38 +0000 2017
BLGBusiness @rsidneysmith A8: Honestly, for me it’s portability over all of those. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:48:01 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A8. Not really, many of those things can be adjusted. #ProdChat Thu Jul 06 00:48:04 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @ShannonRenee That’s good that you have context by device mapped out for you! I need to do this more thoughtfully. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:48:07 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A8a: I think most people don’t know how to measure these factors, so it’s not as well-considered. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:49:07 +0000 2017
PG_pmp @rsidneysmith A8: resolution depends person to person however ergonomics is imp to stay healthy for productivity #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:49:40 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q9: What do you think of devices (like Samsung Galaxy View) merging mobile & desktop productivity and entertainment features? #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:50:01 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee @rsidneysmith There are some things that are easier done on a laptop. It’s a matter of preference. #ProdChat Thu Jul 06 00:50:14 +0000 2017
nmhouston A8 size/weight/portability and ergonomics are key for me. Have to love your tools! #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:50:20 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith By the way, this is a picture of the Samsung Galaxy View. It’s an 18″ screen (ergo, it can fit two iPad Pros in it)… https://t.co/ULvi4QSGlL Thu Jul 06 00:51:00 +0000 2017
nmhouston @rsidneysmith that is supposed to be portable? or desktop-ish? #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:52:14 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A9: I think the Galaxy View and Amazon Echo Show are great example of how computing is merging with environment. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:52:29 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston It has a handle?? LOL #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:52:38 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston I believe that it can be taken to different areas of the home or office. And, it has multiple stand/lay positions. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:53:54 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A9 Remember when we could buy DVD/VCR combo. Good in theory, practice is diff. If one part breaks, have to replace whole thing.

nmhouston A9 I tend to keep my entertainment & work devices separate, but I have the luxury of having space for a TV separate from computer #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:54:41 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A9: I highly recommend you all watch this review of the Samsung Galaxy View (after #ProdChat!): https://t.co/yj8mA6WTbN Thu Jul 06 00:54:56 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q10: Will you do anything different about how you interact with different screens after today’s #ProdChat? Thu Jul 06 00:55:00 +0000 2017
drjlwells #PRodChat Reminds me of this: https://t.co/MuTXihC9Rj Thu Jul 06 00:55:08 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @drjlwells Yes! #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:55:30 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A9 I’m not a fan of hybrids, I like my phones to do what they do and my laptops to do what they do. #ProdChat Thu Jul 06 00:55:37 +0000 2017

DrFrankBuck A10: I was surprised at how close our answers were. We have well-defined uses for the various sized screens in our lives. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:56:31 +0000 2017
nmhouston A10 I’m going to refine my read later workflow to take advantage of my new tablet. #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:56:50 +0000 2017
drjlwells If today’s #ProdChat was all about screens, we need one about voice then (HomePod, Echo, Siri, Alexa, etc.) Thu Jul 06 00:56:55 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Next #ProdChat: July 12 – Topic: “Microsoft Productivity” (Sharepoint, Planner, Project, To-Do, Outlook, OneNote, a… https://t.co/qsUXPpxyXE Thu Jul 06 00:57:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @ShannonRenee But, your phone is a hybrid? It has a phone, computer, text-messaging, word processor, etc. mashed into one. ;-P #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:57:14 +0000 2017
drjlwells Wonder if this actual convergence or by producers’ design. #ProdChat https://t.co/Poau32w90d Thu Jul 06 00:57:26 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @drjlwells Sounds like a plan! I’ll add it to the topic list! Thanks for the suggestion! #prodchat Thu Jul 06 00:57:37 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Have a great rest of your week, all! Thanks! #productivity #prodchat https://t.co/BOGHAGFGBt Thu Jul 06 00:58:00 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A10 I’m happy with my current device situation. I don’t use my tablet much; I found it superfluous for my work style. #ProdChat Thu Jul 06 00:58:30 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee RT @rsidneysmith: Have a great rest of your week, all! Thanks! #productivity #prodchat https://t.co/BOGHAGFGBt Thu Jul 06 00:58:40 +0000 2017
PG_pmp @rsidneysmith A10: it depends on tasks…however will pray to interact less with them & spend time with Mother Nature😀 #ProdChat? Thu Jul 06 00:59:03 +0000 2017
drjlwells @rsidneysmith Thank you for moderating! Great job! #ProdChat Thu Jul 06 00:59:03 +0000 2017
nmhouston Thanks @rsidneysmith for hosting a great #prodchat topic tonight! See you all later! Thu Jul 06 00:59:21 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @drjlwells Thanks, Jeremy! Looking forward to having you back next time you can join us! #prodchat Thu Jul 06 01:00:01 +0000 2017
