Five time-saving steps to take before Labor Day

Labor Day is just about here, and that means come next Tuesday it’s time once again for the full-on work sprint until the holidays. Before you head out to the Hamptons and pack away your white pants, here are five time-saving tips to make your work life post-Labor Day that much easier.

1. Archive old Workspaces. Streamline what you see when you sign into Onehub by removing clutter. If there are old or outdated Workspaces that you and your team don’t use anymore, archive them! They’ll remain accessible, but will be hidden from view so you can focus on what’s important right now. Continue reading

Exhorting the use of exporting lists

We rotate working the weekend support desk here at Onehub, as it gives everyone a chance to interact with customers and learn how they are using our product. I recently pulled a weekend shift and got a request for how to export a list of files and folders in a Workspace.

It’s a feature that’s easy to explain, and one that’s probably useful to a lot of people with expansive Workspaces, so I thought I’d share the answer here. And, while we’re on the subject of exporting lists, now seems like a good time to throw in how to export a list of users as well. Continue reading

A quick word about passwords

By far, the most popular request our support team gets is: “I need help with my password.”

We get it. There are a lot of services out there and they all require passwords. It’s easy to lose track — especially if it’s not something you are using every day. So to help you out, here’s a quick cheat sheet for setting up and retrieving passwords:

Setting up a password

By now you should know better than to re-use passwords on different services. That is a big no-no. And there are only so many clever mnemonic devices you can cram into your brain to remember dozens of different passwords, each with their own spelling, caPitaLIZation, $p3c1@l characters and numbers.

You may want to look into a password manager like LastPass or 1Password. These helpful apps help you generate strong passwords and autofill them in whenever you visit a site requiring your login info.

When creating a Onehub account, you can enforce a complex password policy across all your users. This will mean users must create a longer password with a combination of numbers, caps, special characters, etc. Continue reading

Why the Onehub Quick Start Guide is a great pick

quick-start-guide-pick

Friday is Fantasy Football draft day at Onehub and just about everyone in the office is prepping their picks (and their trash talk). Somehow, I’ve gotten through my adulthood without playing fantasy sports, so it was with some trepidation that I signed up for the Onehub league.

Being a noob, I tried my first mock draft yesterday and the experience was almost overwhelming. What are all these stats? Where did all the running backs go? And how can I be expected to make a big pick in under 30 seconds? Aaaaaagghhhhh!

Thankfully, my co-worker, Matt, was there to walk me through it (and berate some of my selections). But what I really could have used is a simple, Quick Start Guide like the kind we offer new Onehub users. Continue reading
