Here’s a written break down of the video
So what I thought I just do is just quickly show you how you can create really quick Forum threads and how I actually do it.
Sometimes, quite a lot of times actually, especially if I’m working on a mobile device or I want to give a longer answer I usually do it by audio recording like narration rather than actually typing it out because I find that typing it out actually takes a bit longer.
With writing I’m more likely to be pedantic around my formatting stuff but we want the forum to be more conversational and it just doesn’t have to be perfect for everything written down.
We’re working on lots of lots of cool ideas around how we could embed audio how we could get more video conversations going between the community, between members etc.
And I think that’s the way it’s going. Sort of more conversational.
So say I wanted to write something within the challenge…what I do isI go to Microsoft Office. I presume most of you must do you have a 365 subscription…then I go to Word and I create a new document here.
I mean you can actually do this a few ways. Like honestly, there’s tools and and plugins and stuff that do this. But I find that the Microsoft Word is actually pretty good. And so if I come in here you can see up the top in the toolbar you can dictate. I click on the dictation icon and I then I just say what I want written.
Okay, so then I basically copy and paste it into the forum the text that I dictate after a few updates.
If there’s a few errors in your forum threads it doesn’t matter It’s just about trying to get as much great stuff out of your mind for the Forum and thinking of the Forum this brain of the Enterprise DNA community…this is how I think about it.
You know, it’s probably about 90% perfect. It’s still quicker than me writing stuff out. And so I recommend it. I do it on my iPad as well.
Okay, I’ll stop recording here and hopefully you enjoy you enjoyed me. Just showing you how I do things.
