OnTime Gruppekalender med ny versjon for Microsoft! (video)


3bb877b1-77a8-4f78-9552-29c60c16a849

Så er den kommet! Nå kan du laste ned den aller siste versjonen av OnTime Group Calendar for Microsoft versjon 2.7.

Den nye versjonen kommer med en helt ny funksjon som gjør det utrolig enkelt og effektivt å finne felles ledig tid for møtedeltakere. Funksjonen har fått navnet OnTime Pollarity og sparer brukerne for mye tid til å finne tidspunkter da alle møtedeltakere har ledig tid. Det du tidligere måtte gjøre manuelt i din Outlook kalender, skjer nå nesten helt automatisk.

Denne funksjonen har allerede vært implementert i IBM-versjonen et halvt års tid, men nå kan også brukere av Microsoft Outlook glede seg over denne smarte løsningen.

Nytt er også at Microsoft-brukerne nå kan synliggjøre sin kontortid i kalenderen og i motsetning til Outlook kan man differensiere mellom ukedagene og også vise ledige pauser.

OnTime Pollarity hjelper dine medarbeidere å redusere tiden de bruker til å finne et egnet møtetidspunkt som passer for flere. Dette oppnår man ved at løsningen sender ut en automatisk spørring til møtedeltakerne før det sendes ut en endelig innkalling enten det er eksterne eller interne møtedeltakere.

Prosessen er uhyre enkel:

  1. Man registrerer en spørring med alternative møtetidspunkter.
  2. Spørringen sendes ut til de inviterte.
  3. Den som har sendt ut spørringen evaluerer svarene og sender ut den endelige møteinnkallingen.

David Allen uses IBM Notes for his GTD!


I guess you did not know that good old IBM Notes also is a GTD-tool and not only an email client. And the most surprising is that the inventor and founder of the GTD method, David Allen, uses IBM Notes in his company – with an overlay named eProductivity that makes IBM Notes into a GTD tool.

As a matter of fact, I used to have that overlay on my IBM Notes client too. Back in my first years as a Lotus Notes sales rep at IBM. I found it very useful, though a bit complex to use.

But, like IBM Notes, it’s still running out there among enthusiasts and also on David Allen’s desktop!

Here is the video where David tell about the apps he uses to Get Things Done:

I helped 25.000 people work smarter. Now it’s your turn!


Haven’t enough time to get through all those things and todo’s that piled up on your desk? Feel over worked? Burned out? Overwhelmed?

I know how it is. I’ve been there. But I managed to get out of that situation. And I learned how to work less and get more done by working smarter.

Check out my presentation at TEDx:

I help people and businesses who have the same issues and problems. They have got to much to do. They are hardly ahead of anything. Work piles up. Processes slow down and it all ends up in a mess.

Call me and I will help both you and your employees improve your working habits and make sure you get back on track. I analyze the way you work, your and your employees work behaviour, your processes, your priorities and help you understand what you msyt do – and not do!

My method is a mixture of various methods that worked for me. You have heard about GTD (Getting Things Done). You have heard about Time Management.

I will not teach you GTD, but pick some of the best things from the GTD method. I will not teach you Time Management, because no one can manage time.

I will teach you Activity Management, because activities is what creates the values both for you and your company. And I will teach you my own A-B-C method to focus on what is important – what to do and what not to do.

I guarantee You that it will change the way you think, the way you prioritize, the way you work and the way you live.

We did it again! Another success with IBM Connections Cloud!


We did it again!

And we have done it before, repeatedly. Local governments, shipping companies, TV channels, entrepreneurs, industries and now another of our clients has become an official reference to both Brainworker and IBM worldwide.

Say hello to Deltagruppen! A Norwegian company helping people out of unemployment by giving them the skills and resources to get back into the work market.

It’s all about people, knowledge sharing and collaboration both between the company’s employees, their clients and and collaborators outside the company. Geographically spread around one of the regions of Norway they needed a solution to collaborate more efficiently without having to travel to meetings. With the help of IBM Connections Cloud they reduced travel cost by 20 % and improved and simplified remote work.

What we did? We did the adoption, user training and advise on building smart workflows. As their digital development manager, Håvard Lindheim, said:

“…Brainworker delivered a rapid and effective implementation of the solution”.

No streaming from Connect 2017, IBM?


I have looked and I have looked, but I can not find any place on the internet to follow IBM Connect 2017 from San Fransisco. Not any live stream from General Opening Session at least. So, unless someone in the cyberspace tells me how I might follow the session via stream, I guess I will not be informed, inspired or skilled on any news around IBM’s collaboration platform this february.

Dear IBM;

When I was a young boy my parents told me ” If you forget your friends, they will surely forget about you”.

Have you forgotten me and all the other who find it far to expensive and troublesome to travel all the way to Donald Country. Are we remotely banned in any way?

Please set up a streaming and tell us where to find it!
