Remote work should not be a privilege

Our Marketing Team went out to eat pizza last week after work. It was a chance for us to relax after a long day and to get to know our new colleague. We also got to show him around the city. After a few drinks, the conversation shifted to casual shop talk and inside jokes. Remote work was also brought up. It was a lively discussion that followed. One voice was against remote work and listed all the potential downsides. I am, and will continue to be, a strong advocate for remote work and will defend it in all circumstances. However, one voice was strongly against it and listed all the possible downsides. Many articles on it point out trust as the main issue and offer advice on how to keep an eye on your employees and ensure they are working. These articles are written by and for managers. Here’s $0.02 for employees!
Since years, I have been working remotely. Since my first freelance job, when I was translating and transcribing text, to steady jobs such as Community Manager and photographer. This all happened naturally. I was just a follower of the flow, no matter what. This means that I didn’t look for tricks or tips. I love my process and believe it is the best at any moment. Now, I can look back and see how much I have improved everything. The best thing about working remotely? The increase in productivity. Working remotely should lead to an increase in productivity. This is the sign of a well-designed system that works. This is the sign of improvement. It could be the work environment, motivation, discipline, or even the job itself. My challenge is to keep the office focused with the same (or almost) same focus. The pink elephant in your room?
Is trust really the key? Of course, it was at the beginning. At the beginning, of course. There are many distractions in the office. Most of them interrupt my work process and I need to take some time to regain my focus. We are even thinking of snoozing instant messenger entirely a couple of hours a day, so we can devote ourselves to tasks without any interruptions.There’s this amazing point raised in Talent Economy’s post: If I am working from home, spend three hours on focused work and the next five minutes popping my laundry in the dryer, does that make me an unproductive employee? My view is that if the quality of work remains the same or even better, then there’s no need to discuss the matter further. If employees work better remotely, it’s high time for remote work to be considered a legitimate option. You have earned it. Now it’s your turn to live up to the expectations. If you are a manager and still have doubts, remember that trust-based companies excel in almost all fields. It’s obvious that you hired someone because they are trustworthy and can do their job well. If you have doubts about them, you should put it into practice.
Transparency is key to our team’s success. Every task is assigned a start date and due date so that everyone can see what I am working on at any moment. Weekly reports are also filled out on Friday. These reports summarize everything we did and help us plan for the week ahead. So you ca

ActiveCollab is used by remote non-profits to stay organized

I am Dr. Michael St. Pierre and I am the Executive Director of Catholic Campus Ministry Association. I manage seven people in seven states in the U.S. and use ActiveCollab for 100% of our projects, daily work and long-term planning. A team member asked me recently, “What would you do without ActiveCollab?” I knew that I had to share our story.
CCMA is a nonprofit organization that has members across the United States. Their support of college students in a time of increasing complexity and uncertainty is amazing. Our members will be benefited to the extent that our staff performs at a high standard. Students they serve will then receive the care they require. It’s as simple as that for us: if our team works well, so will our work. Our organization offers training programs, networking opportunities, professional development initiatives, and other services to college-level students. There are many details to coordinate, including Zoom events, regional in-person gatherings, live training, and other activities. We are a non-profit organization and have to coordinate many details and timelines. We have designed our weeks so that we each work at our best and set aside time to chat as a team.
ActiveCollab has been a great help to us because it allows us multiple views of each project. For example, a new member of the team can choose to work on a Full-Time or Part-Time Onboarding project. This can be done via the “Kanban”, or the “List” view. It’s satisfying to move a to-do from left to right in Kanban view when a project is complete. Each project also has the features we need. Each project has everything we need, from Tasks to Files and Notes. We can also find the information we need quickly through the Search function. Finally, the Chat feature eliminates the need to use another messaging app. ActiveCollab has everything we need, so it is easy to organize our thoughts and saves time. Donations are scanned and then deposited into the appropriate bank accounts. They are then scanned and entered into ActiveCollab. The team member is notified to follow up. We use the same protocols for mail requests that require a reply. We know that everyone can @name any member of the team so everything is easily found. We encourage asynchronous communication so messages are only answered when each person has time. ActiveCollab houses the agendas as well as follow-up items for team members’ weekly 1×1 meetings. ActiveCollab makes it easy to log in and quickly find what you are looking for. This improves productivity.
ActiveCollab makes us feel at ease, I believe. Each member of the team is aware of what they should be doing on a given day or week. As a nonprofit, the work never ends. Our tools are therefore crucial. Each tool must be simple, reliable, secure, and fun to use. ActiveCollab definitely ticks all of these boxes. It’s a great tool that we enjoy using, which is something I can’t say about email. ActiveCollab has never had a member of the team say, “I wish ActiveCollab could…” It can do all we need, keeping our processes organized and projects on track. Tha

Refurbished my Work, Notification Bell EAP and Invoice QR Code

Welcome to the latest ActiveCollab updates! Last month we discussed our ongoing projects: Refurbishing My Work, improving the notification bell and treating our annual subscribers to a gift. My Work
All users have the option to group tasks by due date. You can also collapse or expand task lists by project or date. This will make your life easier and improve your day-to-day organization. We’d love to hear about how your workflow improved! We had to take a detour through Activity page to get there. We rewrote the code of the entire page, and now we can integrate it better with My Work, so new activities appear in real-time.Notifications
Early Access Program members can test the new bell already. Contact us if you’d like be among the first to experience the latest updates. Overall, the notification counter works faster and is more reliable. We were not prepared for real-time, but we are now ready to embark on a new adventure with the notification system. QR code
You can now add a QR code on your invoices! It can be used to link to a payment link or create a note. This option was requested by one of our customers, who informed us that QR codes on invoices are now mandatory in their country. If this trend continues to expand to other countries, our invoices will be ready! The team that worked on this feature also worked to add 25GB to all annual subscribers! You now have more space for all your files. You can also upgrade your storage if you need more. Add-ons are now available at the following rates:100GB – $49 per month or $490 per year
300GB – $99 per month or $990 annually
500GB – $149 per month or $1490 annually
October’s uptime was more than 99.99% with a total downtime only 2 minutes. We aim to keep both the first and second as high as possible. If you have any questions, please reach out via chat or Twitter! We are happy to help.
We’ll be adding availability records to the My Work page in November! You won’t need to go through the People page to find all the information you need. Client+ roles will also get their own My Work that contains their tasks and activities. We look forward to exploring the possibilities that this reconstruction will offer. We’re now ready to experiment with ActiveCollab browser push notifications. We have analyzed all feedback regarding Workload and will now focus our efforts on improving its performance. To see our Roadmapanytime, you can check out what we will be working on next!

Refreshed Column View, Project Stopwatch. Get Paid to Tryout

Everyone, happy summer! We hope you enjoy this month’s recap! Here’s June’s shortlist. A refurbished Column view
Stopwatch on a Project
Try out the Paid Bundle
View of the Column
The Column view, a vital component of ActiveCollab since 2015 has been substantially redesigned. The final version of the Column view is not yet available. This is just as happened with the new budgeting types. Your feedback is helping us to build the best Kanban. Your feedback is helping us to build the best Kanban.
It might not be enjoyable to switch between tasks if you track how much time you spend on a project. We made it possible to track your time working on a project. You just need to make sure that time tracking is enabled in your project settings. A Stopwatch will be available at the top. The Stopwatch can also be accessed in your Timesheet (My Work>My Time). Play, pause, upload! Time tracking has never been easier. Get Paid bundle trial
All of our users are excited to have access to the exclusive features only available with the Get Paid bundle. It will be activated and you can take it for a spin for 30 days with your data. What additional features are we referring to? These additional features include Availability records, Timesheets and Profitability reports, Xero & Quickbooks integrations, Workload management, and Timesheets. The best part about the program is that you can stay within your account and share all of these features with your team. Stay tuned!
Below is a snapshot of ActiveCollab’s June uptime. Unfortunately, we’ve experienced downtime issues that kept us awake at night. We were unable to take immediate action, so a better way to notify the system administrator was used. We are currently restructuring the app to prevent this from happening again. The June uptime was 99,4%. This isn’t good news, but it doesn’t make any of us happy. We’re constantly working to improve this number. We appreciate your patience and encourage you to contact our Support Team anytime.
We’ll continue to improve the Column view (scrolling performance, more properties) and make it possible for you to test out all the Get Paid Bundle features. Next up is Smarter Date Picker for Tasks, and then My Work. We look forward to updating this page, and making your job-organizing easier. Alerts about budget
It was announced in our previous monthly recap post. However, it is still being developed. You’ll be able set up an alert to be notified when your budget limits are reached by the end of the week.

Redesigning ActiveCollab

What to do if your app has too many functions
ActiveCollab was redesigning my company a year ago. I was able to work in an environment that allowed for mutual trust, no hierarchy, and was open to all suggestions. ActiveCollab’s market position was solidified by the sale of version 4. It’s hard to create a solid product that solves problems, given the fact that there are only a few first-class software solutions. ActiveCollab’s success was something I saw with great admiration. ActiveCollab’s user experience (UX), was a major concern. A51, the company behind ActiveCollab, was primarily a programming company. The design was an afterthought and was hindering technical implementation. This mindset led to the current state of the application after eight years of work. It needed a fundamental UX redesign.
The first week was spent trying to get a feel for the software and finding key user flows that were causing pain. These are also known as friction points, which are sources of frustration when performing certain tasks. There were many of them. There were many of them. We would sometimes get together to make pancakes, but it was only twice at her house. You had to dig through the paper and recipe notebooks to find a plate when it was time for dinner at her house. The same cupboard also held jam, a drill and a blowdryer. This was a well-organized system that she could navigate without any problems. But for any guest, this was terribly frustrating.ActiveCollab 4 was a house where nothing had been thrown away for eight years. It was robust, feature-rich software that people loved. But only after they mastered how to use it. It was difficult to compete with 20+ similar products. This is due to the fact that most people give up on it after a few minutes. It’s easier to add features to create the illusion that the software is powerful than it is to invest in the product and understand the needs of real users. ActiveCollab became a tool that was used intensively by one set of users, while the rest emitted noise. We were hoping for a significant reduction in this — but not in a manner where you would cut off a patient’s foot to treat a sore toe. We needed to find a balance, rethink our approach to solving problems and come up with a new way to do it. We needed to get rid of everything in our house that was not needed, organize it, find the right place for it, and then buy new stuff.
It was soon apparent to me how complicated ActiveCollab was. The greatest hurdle would be 8 years worth of legacy and the existing users who deserved respect. We are able to overcome this obstacle.

How Symmetric and Asymmetric Encryption Work

Since long before computers, cryptography has been around. For thousands of years, governments and armies have used encryption to protect important messages. Advanced encryption is an essential part of any secure IT infrastructure.
It is a way to send information from one computer system to another but to scramble it so only those who have the proper permission can view it. There are two types: symmetrical and asymmetric encryption.
Let’s look at both types of encryption so you know when to use which one. CompTIA Security+, which is entry-level and vendor neutral, offers a deeper look at encryption.
How does Symmetric Encryption work?
Symmetric means that something is the exact same on both sides. Symmetric keys are used by both the sender as well as the receiver of the message. Symmetric encryption provides participants with a level privacy that is impossible to achieve by simply sending plaintext messages that could be read by anyone.
Learn how to become a security expert with SPOTO’s Cybersecurity Training
Start trainingSymmetric encryption uses one key to decrypt and encrypt data. Both the sender and the receiver must have a copy each of the key in order for symmetric encryption to work. There are many ways to share a symmetric key. One method is to use a key agreement protocol.
Diffie-Hellman’s key exchange method was created in 1976. It involves a series data exchanges until an agreed-upon encryption keys is determined. The Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral is an improvement to Diffie-Hellman in that it uses complicated elliptical-curve encryption.
Early developers had the option of using symmetric encryption to deliver messages. They could either send a continuous stream or break it up into segments. Two methods were developed to transfer encrypted data.
Stream cipher can be used for symmetric encryption to send one bit at a given time. However, it isn’t as often used these days. Block ciphers allow data to be encrypted and sent in small sections (64 bits, 128 bits or 256 bits). Block ciphers include DES and Triple DES as well as RC5, RC5, AES, and RC5.
Stream cipher. A stream cipher can be useful when data transmissions are not expected to last for long. RC4, for instance, is a stream cipher which generates a stream (one bit at a moment) of bits that combines encryption and plaintext messages. It was used in wireless LAN (WLAN) early wireless security technologies. Although RC4 is fast and simple, it is not considered to be as secure as other wireless security technologies.
Block cipher. Block cipher is a method of dividing the information into blocks with a predetermined length. It was first used in the Digital Encryption Standard algorithm (DES) in the 1990s. It was initially widely used. Its 56-bit key length led to people questioning whether they could trust it.
Private key encryption is another name for symmetric encryption. Although it is simpler than asymmetric encryption, it does have its limitations. The main problem is getting the key to the person you are sharing data with.
It is difficult to send a private key via the internet. What happens if someone else possesses it? There’s a better way.
How does Asymmetric Encryption work?
Although they are distinct, asymmetric keys can be used together. However, the keys are not treated in the same way. The website that grants access creates both a private and public key. They keep the private key and then send the public key to potential users. A user can use the public key to send an encrypted message from one website to another.
The message is sent in plain text when the sender typed it. The message is encrypted before it hits the public internet. The private key associated with the message can be used by the receiver to decipher it back into plain text.
Because the public and private keys were released

Bloom’s Hierarchy helps you study more effectively

Benjamin Bloom and his colleagues developed Bloom’s Hierarchy in 1956. Also known as Bloom’s Taxonomy, it is a concept of educational psychology. This framework has been used at all levels of education, from K-12 to college, for decades. Bloom’s Hierarchy is essential for anyone who is trying to learn new information. It provides a framework for the mechanisms that allow for new knowledge to be acquired.
This article will explain Bloom’s Hierarchy, and why it is important for online learning. People studying for IT exams will be able to study smarter and learn more in order to do better on exams by understanding Bloom’s Hierarchy.
What is Bloom’s Hierarchy and how does it work?
Bloom’s Hierarchy, a concept in educational psychology, was first introduced in 1956 to help better categorize educational goals. It was updated in 2001 to allow for a more dynamic conception of learning. The hierarchy is usually represented as a pyramid with different types of learning at the base and the most complex, integrated learning at the top. Each level of the pyramid can be represented using action words that reflect different cognitive processes learners use to process new information.

Start trainingImage Source: Vanderbilt University Center for Teaching
“Remember” is at the bottom of Bloom’s Taxonomy pyramid. This is the most fundamental form of learning, and it refers to recognition. Next is “Understand”, which refers to understanding, classification, summary and inference, as well as being able explain concepts. Next is “Apply,” which refers the ability to use information to create new situations.
The next step is “Analyze”, which reflects the ability to combine information and connect diverse ideas. “Analyze” was followed by “Evaluate”, which reflects the ability to use critical thinking to support or oppose an idea. The top of the pyramid is “Create,” which means to produce original or new work.
Although knowledge is the driving force behind all these cognitive processes, the updated hierarchy also categorizes knowledge into different categories: metacognitive, conceptual, and factual knowledge.
Bloom’s Hierarchy is a method to organize and establish learning goals and provides a structured set of learning objectives.
Active Versus passive learning
There are two types of knowledge that can be acquired: passive and active learning. Active learning is the act of students participating in courses that allow them to better absorb information.
Active learning is, as the name suggests, anything students do to interact and learn about a topic. This could include problem solving, participation in online discussions, and completion of worksheets to test new knowledge.
Passive learning is the opposite. It involves less active participation in learning such as listening to lectures and taking notes or flipping through PowerPoint presentations.
For optimal information retention, identify your learning style
To best understand your learning style, it may be useful to identify it. Auditory learners learn best when they can listen to lectures. Visual learners may find visual presentations more beneficial. Tactile learners may prefer to be in hands-on courses that are more laboratory-based.
How to effectively self-pace your learning
Self-paced learning is not for everyone. It is important to consider your learning style in order to be successful. It may be beneficial to take notes online while you listen to a lecture. You can also t
