With the rapid development of the Internet, online collaborative work has become a daily operation of many companies. We will also use some tools to improve office efficiency in the process of work. In this way, even if we are not in the company, we can still achieve the requirement of “stop work without stopping work”.
Of course, telecommuting is also necessary with the help of all kinds of hardware. If you work from home, many people will choose laptops. Unfortunately, there was something wrong with my MacBook Pro keyboard and it was still being repaired by Genius Bar, which forced me to take out the only iPad I had left to work.
Some people say that iPad is a “pre-purchase productivity, post-purchase iqiyi” equipment, while others say that iPadOS gives iPad more productivity attributes. In my opinion, only when you have used a product attentively can you give a true evaluation. I happen to be at home recently, so let me use my iPad, to see if it can become my office assistant.
How to solve the problem of team communication?
When working from home, “how to communicate with a team” is obviously a question worth thinking about. In the era of the rapid development of the Internet, there have been a large number of communication tools for us to use. Even if we are not in the company, we can still complete face-to-face communication.
During the epidemic, “Nail” came into everyone”s view, and the App won the top spot on the App Store free list in a very short time, which shows how hot it is. Moreover, many of our work arrangements are completed in nails, pulling a group within the team to complete all kinds of work, or even a video conference, can be completed through nails. It can be seen that even if we are not in the company, we can still complete the corresponding tasks.
Nail has been officially recommended by Apple, and it fits perfectly with the latest iPadOS. In daily use, I often put the main App on the left side of the screen and the nails on the right side of the screen. In this way, you can drag and drop the text or pictures directly copied and pasted into the nail App, easy to achieve multitasking, make full use of the advantages of iPadOS.
Of course, some companies are using Wechat for office work. After my actual measurement, Wechat also adapted to the latest iPadOS. We can also send other content to Wechat friends by dragging and dropping.
We sometimes send screenshots to colleagues, but marking the highlights in the screenshots by hand is obviously not the best choice. If you have Apple Pencil, while using iPad, you can use Apple Pencil to swipe from the left and right corners of the screen. In this way, the key points of the screenshot can be marked directly and sent to colleagues by dragging and dropping. And if you need to capture long images, iPad can also help you achieve, as long as you select “full page” when intercepting, you can intercept the contents of the whole page and automatically generate PDF documents.
Generally speaking, we can solve team communication problems on iPad during daily communication. Even if you are not in the company, you can communicate easily with the help of iPad and all kinds of App.
Teamwork on document content
As a text editor, my daily job is to write manuscripts. In my personal opinion, an easy-to-use text editor is as important as the barrel of a gun in the hands of a soldier. So when I write a manuscript, I also use different editors according to different scenarios.
At present, the editor I use most frequently is the “memo” built into Apple’s device. Because it is simple enough, there are no other complex functions that can distract me. And it also supports backup through iCloud, as long as I connect to the network, my text data will not be lost. In addition, the memo App is developed by Apple itself, which ensures that it will hardly collapse during use.
Although the design of the memo App is simple, it has a lot of features, and it supports multi-person collaborative editing on its own. We only need to enter someone else’s Apple ID or phone number to apply to collaborate with others to write the article. And the words written by different people can also be displayed in different colors, which is convenient for us to understand the content written by different people.
If you need to share articles with non-Apple users, there are other useful App options for you to choose from. During this epidemic, the “graphite document” came into my view. As a tool for multi-person collaborative writing, graphite documents also have a lot of advantages. When we use the multi-person writing mode, the graphite document directly shows each author who wrote the article.
Like other online editing tools, the threshold for graphite documents is low. We can download App, on iPad or use the web version directly in Safari browsers. Even in Wechat, it can be written through Mini Program, which is undoubtedly an additional item for users who use different devices in the company.
Now, I will use the iPad Pro connected to the keyboard smart double-sided clip to complete the article writing. In practice, the typing experience of the smart keyboard folder is quite friendly, its keystroke is not high, and its tapping feeling is similar to MacBook’s butterfly keyboard. As a user who is used to MacBook, its tapping feel makes me feel very familiar. Coupled with the help of multiple editors App, it will not affect productivity at all.
Image repair-File transfer using iPad in one go
A complete article should not only have words, but also beautiful pictures. Thanks to the good ecology of iPadOS, both novice users and professional people can complete their work through iPad. For example, the free version of Snapseed, Meitu, has been able to meet the daily use of novice users. Professional App, such as Lightroom, is on a par with the computer version of the software experience. We can even import the presets we have used in Lightroom to improve the efficiency of image processing.
Use Lightroom to edit pictures
If you are a iPad Pro user, you can not only achieve fine operations through Apple Pencil, but also through the iPad Pro screen to achieve a more accurate display effect to achieve WYSIWYG.
After the picture has been repaired, it is obviously a humane job to package and send it directly to others. Thanks to the brand-new “file App” in iPadOS, the work of packing files has become easy, and after packing, we can send them directly to others through nails, Wechat, etc., for the convenience of other colleagues.
It is not difficult to find that if you choose the right tools, you can also work efficiently at home. Even without computers, we can communicate through nails and Wechat on iPad. Usually pull the group to hold meetings and work together, and use all kinds of collaborative office documents in iPad at home, which can also achieve the corresponding work. In this way, we finally realized the demand of “stop work without stopping work”. Maybe iPad is still an entertainment tool in the eyes of many people, but believe me, try to take the first step and use it to get the job done, maybe this device will unlock you more inspiration.
