Creating an Audio Podcast

Date: 9th September 2016

Duration: 57:44

Show ref: SCOM0574

Something very different this week - see how I create an audio podcast from scratch including all steps required to get it submitted into iTunes.

Even if you don’t have a requirement to publish your own podcast, I hope you’ll find this marathon episode interesting as it touches on many tools and technologies, and gives you a peek under the covers as to how some of your favourite podcasts are managed.

Following on from the previous episode, I take a look at some of the more advanced aspects of Slack including installing and configuring some sample integrations, as well as building and configuring Teams. 



Slack is a great way to centralise your communications, all within a single app. Slack also integrates with over 80 web services making it as flexible or as powerful as you want.

In this episode, I take a look at integrations with services we’ve previously looked at on ScreenCastsOnline - Dropbox, Twitter, Trello and Airtable.

 I also show you how you can request an automated invitation to the SCO Demo Slack team and try it out for yourself!

Email is great but sometimes Slack is better!

Slack is a collaboration tool that allows you to message, chat and share files. It also integrates with most of the top online services making it a great way for everyone, from small teams to large organisations, to communicate and collaborate. 

With support for multiple teams, all your communications can be centralised within a single app.

1Password for Families & Teams

Date: 18th March 2016

Duration: 47:09

Introducing 1Password for Families & Teams.

You may already be familiar with the 1Password app for the Mac and iOS and know that 1Password is a fantastic way of securing all your passwords, credit card information, account details and much much more. 



With the standard 1Password app, it is possible to share your secure data with family members and colleagues, but you need to sync your data using third party services. It works, but it's not so easy to setup and maintain.

Enter 1Password for Families and 1Password for Teams - These new subscription services make it so much easier to share your secure information with trusted family members and colleagues. There's no need for third party syncing services, it's easy to setup plus you get control over who accesses what, as well as the ability to recover lost or forgotten passwords for members of your family or teams. Even better, there's full integration with your familiar 1Password applications, in fact, everyone gets the full versions of the apps on all platforms as part of your 1Password for Families or 1Password for Teams subscription.

Airtable is an amazing cloud based database app that runs in your browser as well as natively on your iPhone and iPad (with an Android app on the way). Being cloud based, it’s truly cross platform and updates are synchronised almost instantaneously across all platforms and devices.

Best of all, there is a generous free version, it’s really easy to use and it’s extremely powerful!

It takes a lot to impress me, but I’ve been blown away by Airtable!

Trello - Visual Task Management

Date: 1st January 2016

Duration: 44:26

Show ref: SCOM0538

The first episode for 2016 and I take a look at a great tool for organising and planning - Trello.

The third and final Plex instalment. Following on from the previous Plex episodes, I take a further look at some of the benefits of a full Plex Pass subscription.

With the advent of the Plex Apple TV app, Plex has suddenly become hugely popular with the Mac community.

Use Plex to organise, play and share your local media library.

Following on from looking at the basic features of SaneBox last week, I take a look at even more features designed to allow you to manage your email overload effectively.

Email can rapidly become overwhelming, unless you put steps and processes in place to manage it effectively.

Wouldn’t it be great if someone stepped in and started to organise your email automatically, allowing only important emails into your Inbox. Even better, imagine someone constantly monitoring how you process email, learning as it goes and stepping in to help you out.

That’s exactly what SaneBox does for you.

Following on from last week’s show, if you work with a group of people or need to collaborate on a project or task, Podio is for you!

Podio is a free web based service that allows you to create Apps and Workflows to monitor and control collaborative working. Don't be put off by the terminology, it's actually more useful and less intimidating than it sounds.

I also take a look at accessing the App market to download hundreds of pre-designed Podio Apps for free, to use as is, or to use as the basis for your own Podio apps.

No coding is required and if you don't fancy starting from scratch, there are hundreds of free apps and templates available in the App Market to use as is, or to use as a basis for your own workflows or processes, or even just to give you a bit of inspiration.
