Coding in an Office

Last week we asked you about your challenges and frustrations about automation. We got a lot of feedback and we’re still going through them. Thank you for sharing your feedback. We’re going to use it for our upcoming blog posts and podcast episodes so we can help you.

One common theme we’ve noticed so far is that a lot of people think that automation is only for coders and people with technical skills. If you’ve never done anything technical, it can seem impossible to get started with automating anything.

Back in the day, you had to read a manual and browse through hundreds of support tickets to understand how to automate something. Nowadays, though, that’s not the case anymore. With point and click interfaces it has become really easy to automate things now, but most people don’t know about this.

That’s about to change. We want to show you how simple it is to automate anything you do. We’ll create a free video series where we’ll take user-submitted ideas and show you how you can automate it.

So here’s my ask: what is something you would like to automate?

This could be a repetitive task, anything you do now and then, or something that takes up a lot of time. Share your answers with us by leaving a comment below and we will handpick a few of them and show you how to automate it in an upcoming blog post.

Can’t wait to hear from you.

  1. Weekly reviews. How to automate digital routine cleanups, reviews of mail, websites, content…etc in detail.

    I have an automation saved up on Alfred that I have been used for years and years but I’m curious how others clean up their computer on a weekly basis in order to review and prep for the following week.

  2. I’d love to automate a filing system. I have the hardest time keeping my files organized and always end up with a desktop covered in files.

    If there was a way to set up a filing system and then automate it? I’d be in heaven

  3. Hi Marmel,

    that is great and will provide a lot of value. I have a general request and a few specific ones.

    General: Can you please include possibilities to automate for Windows Systems? I am required to use these at work and that is where I need to be productive ;-)

    Specific needs für automation:
    – rename and sort files from downloads to specific folders
    – create pdfs from documents after saving (e.g. PowerPoint, Word)
    – create meeting note template for each appointment in Outlook

  4. I often need to archive iCloud files. When someone shares an iCloud file with me, I get an email with the iCLoud link. I want to open the page from the email, click the download button on the webpage to download the file and rename the downloaded file to match the subject line of the message.
