Time really is money — it needs to be spent wisely. We only get so many hours in the day to do everything we need to, like move through our to-do lists, make an impact at our jobs, and spend time with loved ones at the end of the day.
So it’s vital you make the most of the time you do have, which often means finding ways to maximize productivity and reduce redundant or monotonous tasks. But increasing productivity can feel easier said than done — it’s hard to say no to a new project, and you can’t push off your mundane tasks to someone else. That’s where technology comes into play.
By finding solutions that help you trim back on unnecessary tasks, you can streamline workflows and make your workday work better for you. A few productivity hacks to start with:
Bring note-taking into your communications platform
You’ve taken notes since you were in school. They’re essential for remembering important items and reflecting on what you learned, and the same goes for today’s working professionals. Many people use digital note-taking tools to summarize and track action items for projects or during meetings. And while these are necessary for documenting details, jumping from your note app to your meeting solution can hurt your focus. After a call, you usually have to spend a few extra minutes sharing the notes with everyone, and then wait a few extra hours or even days to get their input in there. This adds up, especially if you have a lot of meetings on your calendar.
Our advice: bring your note-taking app into your existing communications platform. By combining the two, you can have everything you need in one place to stay productive, easily tracking your to-dos before, during, and after meetings.
That’s why we’re offering Zoom Notes (planned to be available by Sept. 11). With Zoom Notes, you can create and take notes right in the Zoom app, which helps you:
Zoom Notes will be available to all paid Zoom customers, with the exception of those on a Zoom United bundle.
Make finding time to connect the easiest part of meeting
Speaking of skipping unnecessary steps — why use a scheduling tool that’s outside of your meeting solution? Using third-party apps like Calendly means you have to toggle between multiple applications like your email, calendar, and video communications solution just to set up a call, potentially hurting productivity.
Find that same functionality within existing solutions, starting with Zoom Scheduler (now generally available). With our scheduling tool, you can reduce the time and hassle of appointment scheduling by getting it done all within Zoom.
You can use Zoom Scheduler to:
Hold efficient, dynamic brainstorming sessions
We all know the feeling: you need to get started on a project, but you can’t find the inspiration or motivation. You’re wasting precious time trying to figure out how to get out of your creative slump or writing block.
Another productivity hack: find a free-flowing space to get a brainstorm going, spark an idea, or conceptualize something visually.
A virtual whiteboard can be the key to unlocking new levels of creativity and collaboration. With a digital canvas, you can expand and clarify ideas in a visual way, helping you move past mental roadblocks and on to tackling the project at hand. And with Zoom Whiteboard, you can watch ideas come to life together with your team, using it to collaborate before, during, and after meetings.
While there are dozens of whiteboarding features you can use to effectively visualize ideas or get inspired, here are a few that will help you streamline brainstorming sessions:
Collaborate over asynchronous video on your own time
Sometimes, you need to hop on a quick video call with someone to explain a convoluted topic or visually display how something works. But what happens if you can’t track them down or get a call on the books?
That’s where asynchronous video tools come into play. With these solutions, you can quickly record yourself and your screen, and then send those videos to relevant stakeholders. Our asynchronous video offering, Zoom Clips, helps you do just that, allowing you to easily record, edit, and share high-quality short-form videos both internally and externally. You can demonstrate important information to teammates in a pinch, add a personal touch to your collaboration, or just share a detailed project update without having to join a live meeting.
With Zoom Clips, you also get a dedicated content library where you can manage, share, rename, download, or delete your clips. And you can share this content with others at any time, so they can then view the clip, leave comments, or use emojis to react to it. You can get your message across without having to waste time getting a hold of someone.
One place to stay productive
The little things add up to a lot of time and energy — the time it takes to share notes with a team, set up a meeting, or get a brainstorming session going. By trimming unnecessary tasks, you don’t just regain productivity, you also pave the way for more strategic, meaningful work.
Whether you’re bringing notes or scheduling apps into your communications platform, simplifying workflows with integrations, or cutting out the mundane with intuitive AI features, the Zoom platform is your one-stop shop for productive, meaningful work. All of these come as part of our Zoom One offering, which combines chat, phone, meetings, whiteboard, and more into one seamless platform. One dedicated space for productive work, with possibilities for limitless connection.
