Improve Your Workflow: Free Notepad Widgets and “Send To”

Friday, September 14th, 2012

Take notes on the fly; have them auto-saved; send them where you need them easily.  That’s what its about.

All LuxSci users can add “Notepad Widgets” to the “Workspaces” that they have once logged into the LuxSci web interface.

Simple: Click on the notepad area and start typing.

  • Your input is auto-saved – no need to remember to save changes
  • Use plain text or HTML notepads for simple or more complex notes
  • Share your notepads with other users (by sharing the Workspaces they are in) — allow others read-only or read-write access
  • Works great even if multiple people are editing the same notes at the same time — everyone’s changes are automatically merged and propagated to everyone else’s screen.

Free Service: Virtual Notes and Instant Access from Any Page

Friday, May 13th, 2011

Happens all the time — the need to take notes while reading email, accessing your calendar, or performing other actions.  Taking notes is usually “too much work” unless they can be accessed instantly, auto-saved, and hidden when done.

Quick virtual note taking is included FREE with all LuxSci accounts … via LuxSci’s Notepad Widget.  Here is how it works.

Case Study: Quick Access To Do Lists and Notes

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

If you are like me, then you have a bunch of paper Post- it notes, note pads, and other ways to track your notes and “to do” lists. These lists are not with me everywhere, however. And I have found that using “to do” list software that requires you to go to a special page or run a special program to access the list is also not ideal — especially if that electronic ” to do” list is not immediately available from any computer that I may be using!  I just never stick with it.

LuxSci WebAides and Workspaces provide an elegant solution that makes access to notes and “to do” lists (and many other productivity tools) quick and easy from any computer when accessing any page of your LuxSci web interface.

Collaborate with Enhanced Notepad Widgets

Friday, November 6th, 2009

LuxSci has expanded the functionality of its Notepad widgets to make them ideal for collaborative editing, especially in the context of shared Workspaces.

The Notepad widget is available to all LuxSci users. It provides a customizable area where you can view and edit notes — in either plain text or using a visual editor with full HTML markup support.  The Notepad widget auto-saves any changes you make to your notes within seconds of your changes — no need to press a “save” button”.  It’s easy – you just type.

So, what’s new?

New “Mobile Mode” for PDAs and Smart Phones

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

LuxSci has offered an “Xpress” WebMail portal for many years.  The portal is fast, simple, and works with most devices because it does not use any JavaScript or cookies, and uses few images.  The Xpress portal is good for security, privacy, and access from legacy devices, as well as over very slow connections.

However, the mobile device landscape is quickly changing.  Starting with the iPhone and its full-featured Safari web browser, to the Android, the Palm Pre, and the availability of browsers like OperaMini on many phones, it is now the case that many “cutting edge” phones actually have fast web browsers that fully support JavaScript, AJAX, CSS, and broadband — all the technologies formerly the purview of the desktop.  Their major drawback, however, is still the very small screen. Many of these browsers work perfectly well with most web sites, including LuxSci’s full-featured WebMail portal; however, it can be problematic and painful to use and navigate sites designed for large displays on these device’s small screens.

Enter LuxSci’s new “Mobile Mode”.  Mobile Mode is a new feature of LuxSci’s regular WebMail interface that is available when it detects that you are accessing it using a mobile device, such as an iPhone.
