Matt’s App of the Week: ActiveWords


Share on LinkedIn

appoftheweekFor a productivity nerd like me, the shortcuts native to my operating system and core applications often aren’t enough. And even if you aren’t actively using the keyboard shortcuts for Office, email and more, if you were to stop and think about it, you’d realize just how many things you do over and over and over again on your computer.

This includes common email responses, cutting and pasting of content across applications, click sequences in your CRM and more.

For automating shortcuts beyond what’s built into programs and operating systems, I use ActiveWords. It’s a highly flexible system for PCs and Windows environments that lets you set up unique keyboard combinations that will literally save you hours of time each week.

If you’re a Mac user, check out Text Expander for similar features. I actually use them both, since I move between a Macbook Air and PC desktops, and have found that the feature set for ActiveWords is far richer.

Definitely worth checking out.
