0.42s first of all thanks so much for everyone
1.86s who's here right now um and also to
4.02s those who registered
6.18s um and will be watching it afterwards
9.24s I just want to let you know that this
10.62s meeting is being recorded and we'll be
13.02s posting this video afterwards
15.48s um so you can review it you can also
17.04s share with other team members as needed
20.88s one thing I want to point out
22.98s um is that this is an introductory
25.32s webinar so what that means is it's part
28.14s of a series of webinars
29.88s um that addresses the basic
31.32s functionalities of Microsoft teams and
33.66s today we'll be focusing on the basic
35.46s features so if you are familiar with
37.68s party Matrix already you may see some of
39.72s these as being redundant but at the same
42.00s time it's a really good refresher as
43.62s well
45.18s and with that I'll go ahead and get
46.74s started my name is hi I'm co-founder of
48.90s affluence my contact is here at Hyatt
51.24s if you have any questions
53.16s or feedback from this about this webinar
55.20s please reach out to me I'm really really
57.78s Keen to hearing your feedback what I can
1:0.06 do better and then also what else I can
1:2.04 address as we walk you through the
1:4.08 Journey of pretty Matrix and help you
1:5.46 prioritize
1:7.20 okay
1:8.54 so uh a little bit about
1:11.82 um pretty Matrix one of the things that
1:14.04 I think is really important to
1:15.66 understand is that party Matrix is about
1:17.52 prioritization so it's not just a
1:19.56 project management software it's not
1:21.00 just a task management software but it's
1:23.04 really about helping you understand what
1:25.20 you need to work on at any point in time
1:27.00 and that's the idea around party Matrix
1:29.64 and so we think that
1:31.98 out there you have so many different
1:33.42 sources of data everything coming from
1:35.16 emails to meetings
1:37.26 um so pretty Matrix creates a one
1:38.76 centralized place for you to get a
1:40.38 real-time status an understanding of
1:42.24 what your priorities are across your
1:43.86 entire project
1:46.38 I also want to talk about what makes
1:48.24 part of Matrix different first of all
1:50.10 what we do is we use the four quadrant
1:52.62 methodology which I'll dive further in
1:54.42 as the core methodology behind the
1:57.48 philosophy of pretty Matrix to help you
1:59.78 prioritize better and actually
2:2.28 understand what it is that you need to
2:3.84 work on and communicate your priorities
2:5.58 across the entire organization and
2:7.38 that's really key the second is party
2:9.24 Matrix is the only solution out there
2:11.04 that is Microsoft 365 security certified
2:13.82 across our web app Microsoft teams app
2:16.74 as well as our web app so if you're an
2:19.20 I.T this is something that you can use
2:21.30 to make sure that you can easily approve
2:23.16 part of Matrix for your organization and
2:25.02 if you're not an I.T that's something
2:26.58 you can share with your it organization
2:28.20 to help get part of Matrix approved for
2:30.36 you as well as other team members
2:32.76 uh the other aspect of our pretty Matrix
2:34.92 is over the last several months we've
2:36.72 started enhancing the capabilities
2:38.22 around pretty Matrix to leverage AI to
2:40.56 help you become more productive there's
2:42.00 so many ways to use Ai and we're really
2:44.16 excited about taking some of those
2:45.60 capabilities to help you achieve your
2:47.76 goals more effectively
2:49.40 we also have very very different view on
2:53.22 how you look at prioritization and so
2:56.40 not everything belongs in the project
2:57.96 right not everything belongs in one area
3:0.84 you have so many data sources expanding
3:3.90 across so many different spectrums so
3:5.28 many different areas and
3:6.06 responsibilities one of the things that
3:7.62 we're able to do is have create this
3:9.36 one-on-one view which the people-centric
3:11.82 view for you to understand what you can
3:14.16 work on for your manager or for your
3:16.44 colleague at any point in time we also
3:18.84 can help you save a lot of effort with
3:21.30 templates that's one of those things
3:23.16 where pretty Matrix allows you to not
3:25.68 have to waste time doing the same thing
3:28.26 over and over again especially if you
3:29.82 have a routine an sop or
3:34.16 processes that you want to use over and
3:36.54 over again and then finally just a note
3:38.88 today I'll be talking about party Matrix
3:40.56 as a SAS solution which again is our web
3:42.66 app you can use it across your
3:44.46 organization but for those who are not
3:46.44 aware we also have a HIPAA compliant
3:48.60 solution as well as an Azure government
3:51.24 Cloud solution
3:53.16 um and of course for Enterprise
3:54.30 customers manage private Azure
3:55.98 deployments as well so if any of these
3:57.96 other topics interest you please ping me
4:0.54 or send a message to supported affluence
4:2.52 and I'd be happy to talk to you further
4:7.74 for those who just join us just now I do
4:10.74 want to let you know that there is a
4:12.42 chat section and so if you have any
4:15.06 questions at any point in time please
4:16.62 send me a message in the chat section on
4:18.18 this webinar I'll take a look at it when
4:19.92 I get a chance make sure that I address
4:21.30 some of those questions that you may
4:22.80 have and it's always very good to be
4:24.66 interactive so if there's any feedback
4:26.94 whatsoever please send it in the chat
4:30.36 so let's start start from the beginning
4:32.46 about the fundamentals behind
4:34.20 partometrics so there's a famous quote
4:36.30 attributed to a former president
4:37.38 Eisenhower what is important is seldom
4:39.42 urgent and what is urgent point now one
4:41.94 thing that's really the takeaway from
4:43.44 here is that every single day
4:45.96 um we're inundated with so many
4:47.64 different new things right that you know
4:50.46 in the morning I look at my emails and I
4:52.14 get 30 new emails how many of those are
4:54.12 actually important vast majority or not
4:56.34 and so we get
4:58.08 um this day all these tasks that's
4:59.70 coming to us
5:1.02 day in day out and that's the Urgent
5:3.78 aspect of it and it's just poking you
5:6.12 over and over again and really takes
5:7.74 away our focus and the core of belief in
5:10.86 in this philosophy is that if you look
5:13.74 at everything you have to do imagine if
5:16.14 I asked you to take a piece of paper
5:17.40 right now start writing down jotting
5:19.14 down everything that you think you have
5:20.82 to do today or this week or this month
5:23.28 or this quarter at your work or even in
5:25.74 your personal goals
5:27.90 and then from there
5:30.18 I ask you what to choose what are things
5:32.58 you should work on right now do you
5:34.44 start at the top of that list or do you
5:36.06 start at the bottom of that list or do
5:37.20 you start somewhere in random in the
5:38.46 middle and that's the challenge when you
5:40.26 have that list gets so long and when you
5:42.06 add something to it again where do you
5:43.50 what do you put in that list so the idea
5:46.20 of behind this philosophy is to take all
5:49.02 those things that you have to do and
5:50.64 split it into a two by two Matrix and
5:53.70 that two by two Matrix has a very simple
5:55.32 dimension of let's just call importance
5:57.72 and urgency that's one one approach that
6:0.72 some have um have gone with and so then
6:3.48 you suddenly have okay what are the
6:5.52 things that are important urgent that's
6:6.90 what I should do now and then what are
6:8.88 the things that are important but not
6:10.50 urgent those are things you have to plan
6:11.70 for and then what are the things that I
6:13.14 can actually delegate or ask someone
6:15.48 else to do and then finally what are the
6:17.40 things that I should put on the back
6:19.38 burner or maybe not even do at all get
6:22.02 rid of completely so if we're to do that
6:24.48 what happens is
6:25.92 you get this Matrix and those are the
6:28.56 things that are due now those are the
6:29.94 things that are planned for the delegate
6:31.44 the Inbox and so you've taken that list
6:33.48 and you've turned it into this
6:35.46 prioritization Matrix and
6:38.22 here's the next part that's actually
6:39.60 really really interesting which is I'll
6:41.58 ask you to go and take this Matrix that
6:44.10 you've written down on a piece of paper
6:45.42 walk around the office and compare notes
6:48.12 right you talk to your manager hey by
6:50.76 the way these are my priorities what do
6:52.32 you think you talk to your colleague hey
6:54.06 these are my priorities across all these
6:55.74 projects I work with you what do you
6:57.12 think can you talk to your direct
6:58.20 reports hey these are my priorities let
7:0.12 me see yours so if you start comparing
7:2.46 notes what do you see do you see that
7:4.62 you agree with everything what if you do
7:6.36 then that's fantastic you don't need per
7:7.74 Matrix if every one of your organization
7:9.36 knows exactly what they need to work on
7:11.04 at any point in time you do not need our
7:13.38 software you don't need any software
7:14.64 whatsoever you just go and execute but
7:17.28 if you do find discrepancy and you start
7:19.68 seeing that hey you know what some of
7:21.24 these priorities are actually
7:22.86 different than what
7:24.96 um what I think is important and and so
7:27.36 forth then suddenly you have a starting
7:30.48 point for you to have a conversation
7:32.22 around your priorities and what does
7:34.20 that you should really be working on and
7:36.24 at the end of the day that's what part
7:38.22 of Matrix is party Matrix as a software
7:40.86 is a digital version of this Matrix and
7:43.74 then second of all it's a communication
7:45.54 tool that one it communicates to you
7:48.42 what you should work on right so don't
7:50.28 get distracted by the things in quadrant
7:51.84 three and four work on the things that's
7:53.58 quadrant one and then ideally that's
7:55.74 empty so then you can work on quadrant
7:57.30 two the things you'll be planning for
7:58.62 right that's how you should be spending
8:0.00 your time so that's the first thing it
8:2.64 communicates to you where you should
8:3.96 spend your time the second thing it
8:5.82 communicates to everyone else in your
8:7.80 organization what are the priorities
8:9.12 that they
8:10.62 um they should have and how you can
8:13.98 actually create alignment
8:18.18 so the four quadrant
8:20.64 um the Eisenhower Matrix then makes it
8:23.52 very very
8:24.90 transparent on what it is that you
8:27.48 should care about and my argument is
8:30.48 that it is the hardest part in all of
8:32.88 this so if it is not easy for you to
8:35.22 take all those things you've written
8:36.30 down and printed the Matrix well that's
8:37.92 the point because if you can't make a
8:39.84 decision how can anyone else make a
8:41.70 decision for you on what the priority
8:43.14 should be so success from using party
8:45.30 Matrix is about discovering those
8:47.70 disagreements and I think that as you're
8:49.92 looking at our software and as you're
8:51.78 looking to apply it to your work both
8:54.36 your work and your life as well as
8:56.10 managing critical projects everything
8:57.90 from that's why teach your goals for
9:0.12 your organizations to the day-to-day
9:2.16 stuff that you actually have to get done
9:3.54 make sure that you're using it as that
9:6.06 communication tool
9:8.28 as I mentioned to many of you in the
9:10.32 beginning here these this webinar is
9:12.72 recorded and if you go to our website
9:14.48 webinars you'll see some
9:16.86 of the other webinars that we have
9:18.30 recorded as well and then I mentioned my
9:20.40 contact height affluence but now there's
9:22.02 also supported affluence if you have any
9:23.46 questions please send that message there
9:24.84 and with that I'm going to jump into the
9:27.66 actual product itself as mentioned if
9:29.94 you have any questions whatsoever please
9:31.86 send in the chat and I've tried my best
9:33.66 address uh during the demo here so now
9:36.60 I'm going to jump into a live demo of
9:37.98 pretty Matrix on the web app
9:46.62 okay so this is what party Matrix looks
9:50.10 like
9:51.06 um so you should be able to see my
9:52.38 screen here I have a very very basic
9:55.38 display of party Matrix in this
9:58.32 particular case I have a slightly
10:0.00 different quadrant names and what I
10:1.74 mentioned to you the do now plan right I
10:3.66 call it critical immediate critical but
10:5.16 not immediate but the idea is the same
10:7.86 so when you have when you use party
10:9.96 Matrix essentially you have this four
10:11.70 quadrant box and as you hover over each
10:14.16 of these you're able to add tasks very
10:16.86 very easily input Matrix we call it
10:19.14 items and the reason we're called items
10:20.76 because not everything is a task because
10:22.44 it could be resources like documents or
10:24.96 whatever and maybe they belong in
10:26.52 different places but to add a task it's
10:28.92 actually really really straightforward
10:30.06 so imagine if I want to add an item here
10:32.58 so I want to follow up with
10:35.34 um
10:36.48 webinar participants right so imagine if
10:38.88 I I after this I want to send an email
10:40.86 to all of you so I set myself a reminder
10:42.42 to do that and that's how I create a
10:44.28 task but the way part of Matrix works is
10:46.44 that we actually also use natural
10:47.82 language to make it easier for you and
10:50.46 so if I just create a task well when did
10:53.10 I do it you know what am I going to do
10:54.30 it right now or in two weeks so I can
10:56.10 just say do tomorrow
10:57.90 and if I do something like that what
11:0.00 happens is part of Matrix creates a task
11:1.62 for me here it is in quadrant four and
11:4.26 then afterwards we use natural language
11:6.00 and it actually creates a due date for
11:7.74 you so I've just actually done two
11:10.02 things in just one step but imagine if
11:12.54 now I understand that wait a minute you
11:14.28 know what this is actually something
11:15.18 that's really critical and important I'm
11:16.68 going to go ahead and drag it to
11:17.82 quadrant one and now in this particular
11:19.92 Matrix I see what my tasks are and if I
11:21.96 were to start my day tomorrow I would
11:23.40 look at this like hey you know what this
11:24.72 is actually important and urgent I got
11:26.04 to get that done and so I can see that
11:28.26 um and the moment that I set a due date
11:29.76 in for Matrix we actually set get
11:31.62 reminders that hey you actually have
11:33.96 this on your calendar make sure you do
11:35.94 it
11:37.26 now you notice that when I create that
11:39.12 task on the right hand side here there's
11:40.98 actually What's called the item details
11:43.02 so item details is essentially an
11:45.06 expansion on the information the
11:47.34 metadata Etc around that task so for
11:50.40 example the top here is what project it
11:53.04 belongs in I can move it to a different
11:54.60 project if needed and then second the
11:57.06 name of the item I might want to modify
11:58.98 that later as needed next to that is
12:1.62 star when I star task what it does is
12:4.20 actually say hey you know what this is
12:5.94 not only in a certain quadrant but also
12:8.16 I want a special report on it I want to
12:10.38 make sure that this is at the very very
12:12.12 top of my list so that's another
12:14.10 dimension of flagging something that
12:15.84 says you know what this is critical
12:17.94 um you can add icons so for example
12:20.28 since this is follow-up and let's just
12:23.04 say it's related to email maybe I'll
12:26.04 choose
12:27.96 uh
12:30.00 uh a phone call icon here right so
12:32.52 that's following up with the webinar
12:34.98 participants and then right after that I
12:37.08 have owner so what happens is every
12:39.18 single task in Prodigy chicks has an
12:40.80 owner exactly one owner not multiple
12:42.60 owners exactly one owner and the owner
12:44.70 is the icon the Avatar that shows up
12:46.62 right here the idea behind this is that
12:49.38 it's about responsibility so earlier
12:51.42 when I talk about your personal task
12:53.16 well it's great that's you you're the
12:54.72 owner but imagine as you start using
12:56.58 part of Matrix more and you want to
12:57.84 communicate to others hey this this is
12:59.82 my task but this is you know Bob's tasks
13:1.68 is Tom's task
13:3.12 Etc then you want to know who the owner
13:4.56 is we don't want multiple owners because
13:6.48 you want to have a very clear
13:7.62 responsibility who that person is but
13:10.02 there might be people who are actually
13:12.54 um who are actually relevant to this
13:15.12 particular task and they're called
13:16.38 followers so a task may have one owner
13:18.72 but multiple followers and if you want
13:20.10 to add followers to a task you click on
13:21.48 this plus icon and then you can choose
13:23.46 someone else who might be relevant to
13:25.20 this particular task
13:26.58 and then after that you have progress uh
13:28.80 so for example zero to 100 100 means
13:31.44 something is done and then you have
13:32.76 effort how long does that take not all
13:34.38 tasks are created equal and then you
13:36.24 have due dates as I mentioned earlier
13:38.04 but then there's also something called
13:39.42 reminders and the way reminder works is
13:41.34 let's just say you have something to do
13:42.96 in two weeks but if you wait for you
13:44.94 wait two weeks to get it done well
13:46.20 that's not gonna work because you'll be
13:47.82 late for that so reminder remind you to
13:50.70 actually get started earlier right so
13:53.22 for example because I have this
13:54.90 follow-up with our webinar participant
13:56.76 due tomorrow I can actually set a
13:58.74 reminder right let's go ahead and set a
14:0.24 reminder for me today so then
14:3.24 um I remember to go ahead and take a
14:5.10 look at this later okay so now I have
14:7.50 the reminder set and so in three hours
14:9.54 the system will send me reminders hey by
14:11.46 the way you should get started on this
14:13.02 um so then you can actually meet your
14:14.16 deadline
14:15.42 and then as you look down further
14:16.92 there's three additional options here
14:19.20 within the part of Matrix um item detail
14:21.30 the chat what the chat is is you can
14:23.82 think of it as two things one the
14:25.98 history of the changes so the way part
14:28.44 Matrix works is we actually create a
14:30.30 full history of all the changes that you
14:32.52 have related to every single task and
14:34.68 the reason for that is for you to review
14:37.44 imagine if you're working a particular
14:39.54 tasks and then you're changing the
14:41.40 priority level you're adding notes and
14:43.26 you're inviting other people and you're
14:44.82 having conversation around it
14:46.88 but in six months when you look at it
14:50.58 again will you remember the reasons you
14:54.00 make some of those changes or who you
14:56.34 assign it to or why you change a due
14:58.02 date and so the chat is a way for you to
15:0.30 have that immutable that unchanging
15:2.34 history so you can look back and then
15:4.74 understand oh hey I made this decision
15:6.72 because of XYZ and then importantly if
15:9.90 you bring on someone new someone
15:11.28 completely new to the organization they
15:13.38 can jump into a party Matrix right away
15:14.82 and get the full context and
15:16.62 understanding of how decisions were made
15:19.20 what priorities are for every single
15:21.18 task and when they would move around Etc
15:22.98 so this is not something you can achieve
15:24.84 with emails this is not something you
15:26.46 can achieve with a Wiki document or any
15:29.76 basic task management software
15:31.74 so that's the chat the second thing a
15:34.26 good way to use a chat is a way to
15:35.82 communicate to others uh so instead of
15:37.98 just sending a message inside teams or
15:39.90 having a conversation in the meeting you
15:41.88 can actually send messages to to
15:43.44 everyone in this particular task and
15:45.90 they can look at it and have an
15:47.28 understanding of the decisions again
15:49.80 that's made around here
15:51.84 the second up part of it is notes um so
15:54.30 notes is just adding additional notes to
15:56.22 the task itself it's not intended to be
15:58.50 a rich text place where you can go and
16:1.02 do all sorts of fancy stuff you have
16:3.00 Microsoft Words you have Google docs for
16:4.74 that you can just link that into part of
16:6.72 Matrix instead the notes section is just
16:8.76 for you to add some details around the
16:10.56 task itself the other thing can do with
16:12.42 notes is actually you can create
16:13.56 subtasks so I can go and I can do
16:15.54 subtask
16:17.16 one subtasks
16:20.34 to subtask three right so I can create a
16:23.94 subtask inside pretty Matrix and um for
16:26.82 each of these action items and then
16:29.04 lastly there's the resource section the
16:31.08 resource sections allows you to go and
16:33.24 attach additional information into the
16:35.34 item itself could be files could be
16:37.44 images example let's just say you want
16:40.02 to have an email and take that email and
16:41.94 have it as task well you want that email
16:43.56 attached into part Matrix here so then
16:45.96 later on you look at this you can know
16:47.58 exactly what that emap was or maybe you
16:50.16 asked someone to could you review this
16:52.74 particular report that's the way it
16:54.54 works too so you can link to your
16:56.70 intranet you can link to a Google Docs
16:59.58 you can link to a Microsoft Word
17:0.90 document you can upload them if needed
17:3.24 Etc and that goes into the resource
17:4.80 section furthermore in the resource
17:6.78 section I won't go too much into the
17:8.82 details the resource section you can
17:10.62 actually link to other party Matrix
17:12.06 tasks as well so pretty Matrix allows
17:14.22 you to actually link action items
17:16.92 together create dependencies let's say
17:18.84 you got to get this done a done first
17:20.40 before B and then permanent will
17:22.50 automatically build Gantt charts for you
17:23.94 that's something that we can address in
17:25.98 the more advanced webinar but that's you
17:28.08 can think of the resource section as a
17:29.82 way to add a lot more details than what
17:33.78 you can possibly add in the chat or
17:35.34 notes section
17:36.42 now if I were to go go if I were to go
17:38.52 back to the chat section you can see
17:40.02 that actually the record is kept for me
17:42.00 here right I create a new sub task one
17:44.04 two and three and right now the progress
17:46.14 is zero one thing I can do is as I Mark
17:48.72 the task is done you'll see that the way
17:50.82 part Matrix works is if you don't you
17:53.34 don't
17:54.00 um manually override the progress if you
17:56.46 create three sub tasks I get mark one is
17:58.14 done well it's 33 done so that's
18:0.30 automatically captured for you as well
18:2.22 and so that's basically what an item
18:5.58 detail is so you can think of it as a
18:8.58 way for you to just
18:10.32 add more information as needed but you
18:12.42 can also see that actually none of this
18:13.92 was absolutely crucial all you needed
18:16.44 was the task the quadrant and the owner
18:19.62 and the owners automatically selected
18:21.96 so now let's take a look at this bigger
18:24.42 picture
18:25.26 um imagine if you want to go and you
18:27.78 want to start customize some of these
18:29.94 projects so then it maybe resonate a
18:32.28 little bit more with you earlier I
18:33.78 showed the do now the plan as the
18:35.94 quadrant name well if I click on this
18:38.70 little I icon here I open What's called
18:40.98 the project details when I open the
18:43.50 project details I can change the name of
18:45.00 the project but the second thing I can
18:46.80 do is I can invite team members so when
18:49.92 you first create a project in pretty
18:51.12 Matrix it actually starts out as just a
18:53.28 project for yourself so that's the most
18:55.62 basic level right and so these are this
18:57.60 is a project that's only you in it
18:59.22 you're the only person who can see the
19:0.54 task in it and it could be your personal
19:2.28 task it could be the things you need to
19:3.84 do
19:4.92 um for your work etc you can have as
19:7.80 many projects as you like in print
19:9.00 Matrix but what you can also do is you
19:11.28 can invite others to it so imagine if
19:13.86 you have a particular Initiative for
19:15.36 this quarter you can go create a project
19:17.28 and then click on this plus icon and
19:19.56 invite additional team members into this
19:21.72 the moment they're invited and they join
19:23.58 this particular project they can see all
19:26.04 the tasks in it and so that's how the
19:27.36 permission control
19:29.22 the permission control works so if
19:31.62 someone can see the task
19:33.78 uh if someone is in a project they can
19:35.82 see those tasks in both to see the same
19:37.80 priorities as you do and then that's
19:39.30 when you can discuss and you can move
19:40.62 things around as needed and then down
19:42.72 here you have the quadrant name so I
19:44.22 have critical immediate but I actually
19:45.48 can can change this and customize this I
19:47.76 can call this do now
19:49.74 um do later
19:52.32 uh delegate
19:55.02 and then my inbox and so you can see
19:56.94 that what happens is as I change that
19:58.86 the quantum names changes here and so as
20:0.90 you use pretty Matrix more maybe there's
20:2.70 some Matrix quadrant names that resonate
20:6.00 with you better and the reality is
20:7.80 everyone works in different ways so
20:11.10 there is no single way that you know we
20:13.44 can create alignments across the whole
20:15.12 organization and so even different teams
20:17.40 different departments actually have very
20:19.02 very different terminology that they may
20:20.64 use in their quadrants and so prior to
20:22.26 Matrix gives you that flexibility
20:24.66 so if I were to pause a moment this is
20:27.06 where I would say that you'd get 80 of
20:30.36 the value out of protein matrix with 20
20:32.52 of the work
20:33.78 eighty percent of the value comes from
20:35.70 one creating projects
20:38.28 with the appropriate quadrant names
20:41.28 and then in there inviting the
20:43.50 appropriate people
20:45.06 and then writing down your priorities
20:47.64 inside pretty Matrix and making sure
20:50.16 that everyone sees those priorities
20:53.90 and create that alignment because if you
20:57.54 start seeing someone within your
20:58.80 organization with a different priority
21:0.48 level than than you that's when you
21:3.72 should have that discussion right away
21:4.86 that's when you schedule that meeting to
21:7.68 actually talk about it and then when
21:9.36 you're in that meeting you can actually
21:11.52 pull up for the Matrix and look at it
21:13.56 and talk it through and move that item
21:15.90 back and forth or whatever it is to the
21:17.88 appropriate quadrant to the um and then
21:20.94 set the appropriate due dates the second
21:23.40 thing I want to suggest to you is make
21:25.56 sure you set due dates if you set due
21:27.54 dates and print Matrix it shows up in a
21:29.46 lot of different other a lot of other
21:30.72 places so I've shown you the quadrants
21:33.24 here but the way you can look at pretty
21:35.52 Matrix is there's a data a database of
21:38.22 all the tests you have and then you have
21:40.20 different views so I can go to the list
21:42.18 view the list view takes everything that
21:43.92 I have instead of displaying the
21:45.48 quadrant I display in a list it is very
21:48.00 very easy to see the tasks that are
21:50.22 overdue as well as the tasks that are
21:52.92 assigned to you across the entire Matrix
21:54.72 so when you go to this view you can sort
21:56.70 by each of these
21:58.68 column name the other view you have is
22:1.44 the calendar view so when you have a
22:3.36 calendar view all the tests and have
22:4.98 dates on it shows up on here and then
22:6.90 you can just click on the task and you
22:8.46 can review what it is that you have to
22:9.90 work on and if you need to reprioritize
22:12.12 it or rather move it to a different date
22:13.74 you just drag it drag it to a different
22:16.56 day and partometrix will automatically
22:18.54 update the due dates for you it updates
22:20.52 The Matrix for you and then not only
22:22.32 that the whole record is kept here the
22:24.84 reason that record is cap is actually
22:26.28 for a very important reason imagine if
22:28.08 you assign a task to your your co-worker
22:31.32 say could you do this by a certain date
22:33.96 um but then
22:35.16 they missed it and so they changed the
22:36.90 due date and then they'll get it done
22:38.58 later well what happens is you want to
22:40.68 make sure you know that the due dates
22:41.94 has been changed and so party Matrix
22:43.62 keeps a tally of that history of that
22:45.54 record for you
22:47.22 and then we have the Gantt chart and the
22:48.84 Gantt chart is actually really really
22:50.10 straightforward so part of Matrix is not
22:51.90 one of those software that will go and
22:54.06 make it extremely difficult for you to
22:55.98 build out Gantt charts and create
22:57.84 dependency and so forth product Matrix
22:59.28 all it's doing is it takes the
23:0.72 information that you have and build up
23:2.64 that Gantt chart and visual for you so I
23:6.06 don't have to do any additional work
23:7.32 here now I can go and add items I can
23:9.72 link them and so forth but pretty Matrix
23:12.36 just visualizes that
23:13.98 and then finally you have this thing
23:15.66 called the feed so you can think of the
23:17.88 feed as a history of all the changes I
23:20.40 have within this project again for the
23:22.62 purpose of creating transparency across
23:24.84 your team as well as your
23:26.70 um for yourself and so always be able to
23:29.04 see what is it that matters
23:30.96 okay so that's the Matrix that's the
23:33.84 item today let me show you how to create
23:35.64 more major C's more projects so we call
23:38.40 them projects but the reality is they
23:40.86 they can be a lot more than projects
23:42.24 they can be goals they can be
23:44.10 initiatives and the way I look at it too
23:46.68 is there's at least at least
23:49.62 um two types of projects the first is
23:52.58 your transient project so what a
23:55.62 transient project is has a sort of a
23:57.36 start date and date right let's say if
23:59.94 you're a consulting firm and you're
24:1.32 bringing on a new customer and I'm sorry
24:3.78 a client and that client starts July 1st
24:7.20 and and September 30th well that's a
24:9.48 Transit project because everything you
24:10.80 have to do in that project you've got to
24:12.78 get done so when you create a project in
24:14.40 print Matrix you can just create that
24:16.68 you can have the quadrant and so forth
24:18.48 with your goal is to finish that project
24:19.98 and then when you're done you can
24:21.24 archive that and then the second is more
24:23.40 persistent and persistent means these
24:26.04 are something that sticks around so for
24:27.36 example
24:28.56 um and actually in my my product Matrix
24:30.90 I have 300 plus projects that means I
24:34.14 have all types of projects transient as
24:36.60 well as
24:37.76 persistent and within our own
24:40.20 organization we have projects for each
24:42.60 of our software application and this is
24:44.70 an unending list of things to do so you
24:46.98 can look at it as a persistent
24:49.38 project that never finishes and in fact
24:51.72 the number of tasks and action items in
24:53.34 there will keep growing so when you use
24:55.50 pretty Matrix just in the back of your
24:57.60 mind when you create a project just
24:59.22 think hey you know what is this a
25:0.48 transient project or a persistent
25:2.04 project so this is how you create a
25:4.02 projects go here
25:5.88 click on project if you click on show
25:9.18 our project here it shows you the whole
25:10.98 list of projects so this is my list of
25:13.32 project and then I choose end project
25:15.72 when I add a project I have a couple of
25:17.52 choices so first of all when you use
25:19.92 protein matrix for the first time you're
25:21.48 going to see just this blank project
25:24.18 but if you go down here to public
25:26.16 templates you can actually also see some
25:29.28 templates we've created for you and this
25:30.90 is some best practices we've seen over
25:32.76 time and we add to this slowly but for
25:36.42 example 30 60 90 day plan is actually
25:38.58 pretty popular because if you're a new
25:40.50 manager
25:41.76 choosing this particular Matrix just
25:44.28 creates different custom project names
25:46.56 or quadrant names for you so then you
25:48.66 can think about what are the things I
25:50.04 can do as a manager as a new manager to
25:52.32 ensure My Success very very
25:53.64 straightforward you don't have to go and
25:55.92 learn every anything new you simply
25:57.90 choose that but I'm going to go ahead
25:59.46 and choose a blank project here
26:1.68 so I'll call a new project and I can do
26:5.64 a new project I can add notes to this
26:8.10 project if needed
26:9.66 um User Group you can think of user
26:11.40 group as like departments so for example
26:13.20 maybe sales or marketing or engineering
26:15.66 or something like that and the way it
26:17.46 works with user group is that you can go
26:19.20 and say that hey this is a
26:22.26 this particular client works with all of
26:25.26 these folks right and so when you create
26:27.18 a project with that user group as you
26:29.22 add more and more team members to the
26:30.90 user group they automatically get access
26:32.46 to the appropriate project so you can
26:33.96 think of it as permission control and
26:35.46 then when someone leaves uh that group
26:38.04 then they lose access those projects as
26:39.84 well
26:40.86 so I have no user group I'm not going to
26:42.84 select a user group and then I can have
26:44.64 again some different types of matrices
26:46.56 these are basic blank matrices I'm going
26:49.32 to go ahead and choose the Eisenhower
26:50.70 Matrix and then I can choose a color
26:52.38 theme as needed that's how I add a
26:54.36 project very very easy very very
26:56.10 straightforward and now I open up and
26:58.74 you can see how this is the exact same
27:0.54 view I have earlier on what is inside of
27:4.14 projects
27:5.16 and so when you use pretty Matrix make
27:7.50 sure you just create a couple projects
27:9.78 my suggestion is one create a project
27:12.12 for your personal goals create a project
27:14.82 for the key initiative that you're
27:16.80 working on this quarter right whatever
27:18.36 that may be depending on your job
27:19.92 function and then create a project that
27:22.68 you can share with your manager so then
27:24.66 everyone can be on the same page and so
27:26.64 that's something that you can share with
27:27.78 others so then you guys can both look at
27:29.70 it
27:31.74 foreign
27:33.30 so with that I'm going to pause here for
27:35.10 a second and again I do want to mention
27:36.78 that if there's any questions you can
27:38.16 see in the chat now I want to step back
27:40.14 and I want to talk about a little bit
27:41.76 about our Integrations and some of the
27:43.74 things that we do so party Matrix is
27:45.90 probably the most integrated solution
27:47.04 inside the Microsoft teams ecosystem and
27:48.96 there's a simple reason for that which
27:50.40 is
27:51.30 um I mean you're using teams right now
27:52.56 to join this webinar but a lot more
27:54.54 organizations are using teams one of the
27:56.76 things that we found is that
28:0.18 you get so many different applications
28:2.58 and then you end up being pulled in so
28:5.10 many different places the context
28:6.42 switching is really really damaging to
28:8.58 your ability to focus and this happens
28:10.98 to me all the time because you know
28:12.96 there's just so many places that's
28:14.94 tugging and pulling you um and so forth
28:17.64 so one of the things we've done with the
28:19.74 Microsoft Integrations is try to create
28:21.42 pretty Matrix and put it in the place
28:23.88 where you can switch it for the Matrix
28:25.88 sort of mindlessly and without having to
28:28.62 switch contacts and so that is why we
28:30.24 develop our our Microsoft teams and
28:31.98 Outlook Integrations
28:33.42 so I'm going to go now and show you very
28:35.70 very quickly our Microsoft teams and
28:37.26 Outlook Integrations
28:38.72 first I'll start with Outlook and the
28:40.92 reason I start with Outlook is actually
28:42.30 this is probably one of our most popular
28:43.74 application it's because we're
28:45.66 constantly challenged by email
28:47.88 management
28:49.08 um as mentioned you know I get so many
28:51.00 emails on a daily basis I simply can't
28:53.64 flag them if I flag them it's just it
28:55.86 keeps adding up
28:57.12 um so it's uh if you have five lag
28:58.86 emails great you have 500 flag emails
29:0.90 that's really not going to help you so
29:2.52 the way part of Matrix works is it takes
29:4.14 you can take any email and convert it
29:6.18 into a task so
29:9.24 to install pretty Matrix for Outlook
29:11.34 simply click on this icon up here in
29:13.86 your outlook 365. when you do that you
29:16.80 can search for a pretty pretty Matrix
29:18.42 and then after you install protomatrix
29:20.40 you're able to open it up onto this
29:22.38 right panel so I'm going to close this
29:23.82 and show you how that's done so let's
29:25.68 just say if I have an email and this is
29:28.02 an email that I got let's just assume
29:29.70 that this is an email that I got that's
29:31.14 very important and now I want to go and
29:33.18 actually create a task around it I click
29:35.16 on this dot dot dot icon here and choose
29:37.32 pretty Matrix and open print Matrix now
29:39.60 I want to note show you quickly that
29:41.70 actually you see I have a couple of
29:43.98 different options here so when you
29:45.66 install pretty Matrix just make sure
29:47.10 that you install the standard pretty
29:48.30 Matrix app because there's also the
29:50.10 HIPAA app and the government app and so
29:51.78 the blue icon versus green and orange
29:53.40 just in case you're confused if you do
29:55.56 use the different software
29:57.36 um the different platform then of course
29:58.80 those are all independent so if you use
30:0.90 the government app in teams then you
30:2.52 want to use a government app and Outlook
30:3.84 and you want to use the government app
30:5.04 in
30:6.36 um the web app as well so keep that in
30:9.00 mind but I have the standard app here
30:11.16 I'm going to open pretty Matrix
30:13.02 and what happens is on the right hand
30:15.18 side I get this panel on my Outlook that
30:18.42 allows me to take an email and capture
30:20.70 that email what capturing email does is
30:23.16 it creates a task and so instead of just
30:25.92 flagging an email what I'm doing is I'm
30:28.44 actually going to go and create a task
30:30.56 and the way it works with the task is I
30:33.18 can do all of those things that I showed
30:35.10 you earlier which is one I can have the
30:37.56 task name right which is follow up with
30:42.18 this email okay and then the second part
30:44.52 of it is I can actually choose what
30:46.32 quadrants it belongs in so if I go to
30:48.30 here earlier I created what is it a new
30:51.48 test project
30:52.92 um
30:54.24 a new project right there right that's
30:56.10 the project I created during this demo I
30:58.32 choose that project and then I choose
30:59.70 what quadrant it goes in so go ahead and
31:1.32 choose quadrant four here and then this
31:3.78 is the cool part which is I can actually
31:5.22 assign this task to somebody else and
31:7.92 the reason is simple which is one
31:9.60 sometimes I get an email and I want to
31:11.28 prioritize it
31:12.54 for myself but maybe I want to go and
31:15.06 assign that to another teammate
31:17.04 because again if it's an external email
31:19.74 that's really important
31:21.42 I want to make sure that the appropriate
31:22.92 folks are involved and actually they
31:24.48 know that they are actually
31:26.52 um responsible for this and so I can
31:29.04 choose a person right and so go ahead
31:30.84 and choose somebody else here and then
31:34.80 um I can choose the the due date again
31:36.66 I'm going to change this due date here
31:38.16 uh and then I can set effort Etc there's
31:40.74 an option to extract action item and
31:42.66 this is one of those AI element that
31:44.40 we're adding sort of on a passive side
31:46.26 the reason why we do that is
31:49.20 um again use AI if it helps you but this
31:52.68 is one of those options where it tries
31:54.24 to extract the action items for you from
31:56.16 inside that email nothing is perfect and
31:58.86 I so there's that caveat
32:0.96 um and we never you know promise that
32:3.60 everything work works out perfectly but
32:5.40 the way part of Matrix does it is it
32:7.50 goes and created the the action items as
32:10.20 appropriate for you and hopefully help
32:12.12 you save time anyways I go back to here
32:14.34 I create action item
32:16.02 and voila I get this item details here
32:19.14 I've prioritized this email and then if
32:21.66 you notice on the email itself the party
32:23.52 Matrix tag shows up and so what that
32:25.62 means is that this email has been
32:27.18 prioritized
32:28.56 um and so if I were to go back here
32:31.08 and I opened the same panel again you
32:33.36 see how that capture email option has
32:35.10 gone away and instead I get the option
32:37.20 to open the item so then I don't go and
32:39.42 prioritize the same email over and over
32:41.64 again so there's a couple of these email
32:44.54 Outlook Integrations out there and they
32:47.22 try to go and help you create tasks but
32:49.38 that's all they do they just help you
32:50.64 create more and more tasks without
32:52.20 actually helping you understand the
32:53.88 status of your existing tasks for that
32:56.34 email so with part of matrix it's
32:58.26 intelligent enough to know that hey you
32:59.76 prioritize this email already click on
33:1.68 here and you'll see the status of it
33:4.08 but the other thing I want to mention
33:5.52 too that's also unique to part of Matrix
33:7.14 for Outlook is the ability for you to
33:8.46 take this email and attach an existing
33:10.80 task because maybe you get an email and
33:13.56 you have an existing task for that
33:15.54 client or for that particular action
33:17.70 item well instead of going and create
33:20.04 another task you can actually just hover
33:21.72 over an existing task you can search for
33:23.46 them here and then just attach and so
33:25.98 what that does it attack takes the email
33:27.66 itself the email file and attach it that
33:30.30 task and now anyone who's in that eat
33:33.18 that task in that project can see the
33:35.52 email so if you forward an email the
33:37.98 problem affording email is you have a
33:40.02 thread but then if you have multiple
33:41.34 emails now you've just created multiple
33:43.08 threads and you've completely lost track
33:44.64 of everything so with pretty Matrix
33:46.44 you're able to attach multiple emails to
33:48.12 one single action item allowing you to
33:50.58 have a centralized Place understand
33:53.64 um to understand everything that's
33:55.38 relevant within the context of that task
33:57.30 within the context of that project
33:58.56 within the context of that event so
34:0.42 that's how it works
34:1.80 and if I were to go back to this project
34:3.54 here you see that email shows up right
34:6.12 here right it assigned to the
34:7.50 appropriate person it's set the
34:8.76 appropriate due dates
34:10.38 um it has the notes from the email
34:11.70 itself there's a resource section the
34:13.62 email file very very easy for me to turn
34:16.80 email into a task and delegate it and
34:18.84 now I know that this email won't be
34:21.42 dropped right because it's a sign
34:24.00 there's due dates for it and if it's not
34:26.16 done it will show up in overdue and the
34:28.50 system will send reminders to ensure
34:31.02 that you actually get it done very very
34:32.76 powerful way to
34:34.74 um capture that now the second part is
34:37.14 in the Microsoft teams integration so
34:39.30 I'm going to show you how Microsoft
34:40.14 teams integration works so if you want
34:42.06 to install pre-matrix go to the App
34:43.62 Store here and again search for
34:45.36 pre-metrix once you do print Matrix
34:47.70 shows up right here and you right click
34:49.44 on it and pin again there's different
34:51.42 versions of pretty Matrix right I have a
34:53.04 HIPAA version here I have the standard
34:54.48 version here and then once you do you
34:56.58 see this entire part of Matrix project
34:59.04 view inside Microsoft teams itself
35:1.62 what's what's nice about this is I don't
35:3.54 have to switch I can actually do this
35:5.82 all inside Microsoft teams if you use
35:7.98 teams on the mobile device we also are
35:10.02 one of the very few Integrations that
35:11.88 works inside teams on mobile as well so
35:14.04 you can see the your entire party Matrix
35:15.78 on your phone inside teams and we were
35:18.60 the launch partner with Microsoft to
35:20.34 bring that to your Android device as
35:22.08 well so keep that in mind
35:24.66 um I'm not going to go into the details
35:25.98 into the teams app here because it's
35:27.48 very very similar in terms of interface
35:29.04 right I go to Project list I see the
35:31.32 quadrants and then I can click on this I
35:33.00 see the details but there's a couple of
35:35.28 things that we can do inside teams that
35:36.96 we can't do anywhere else let me show
35:39.06 you for example I go to this chat and
35:42.00 again this is one area that I would love
35:43.74 to encourage you to do if you get a
35:45.42 chance which is when you go to here and
35:47.88 imagine if you have your various
35:49.74 co-workers on the left hand side here
35:51.36 maybe your manager maybe your colleague
35:53.40 that you worked with so many different
35:54.66 projects and you go to this plus icon
35:56.94 and when you choose party Matrix you get
35:59.16 two options the first is the ability to
36:1.68 add what's called a one-on-one view
36:3.24 which is the ability for you to actually
36:5.70 for with this person that you work with
36:7.98 inside teams see all the tasks you have
36:9.72 in common with them and then the second
36:11.34 is a full project view so let's just say
36:13.50 earlier I made a suggestion maybe you
36:15.66 can create a project that you can share
36:16.74 with your manager well let's just say
36:18.18 you have that project you can go to this
36:20.04 invite um invite your your manager and
36:23.82 now you don't even have to switch to
36:25.26 part of Matrix you can just go to this
36:26.82 tab and see all the tasks you have
36:28.26 within that project but what I want to
36:29.94 show you is our one-on-one view which I
36:31.50 think is a very very unique and Powerful
36:33.54 feature I already have it installed so
36:35.16 I'm going to open it
36:36.38 you see I've Eugenia selected here and
36:39.12 inside this channel Eugenia in the
36:41.10 one-on-one here I can literally see all
36:43.26 the tasks I have in common with her
36:46.20 across my entire party Matrix regardless
36:48.96 of projects and so the way you can
36:51.48 imagine this is
36:53.22 right we have all these projects all the
36:55.20 tasks associated with it and you have
36:56.94 multiple projects with multiple tasks
36:59.46 but if you work with someone how do you
37:3.36 know what are the things you have to do
37:4.68 for them
37:5.76 um if there's so many different projects
37:7.14 you have to switch the project and so
37:8.70 forth so pretty Matrix It flips that
37:10.56 whole thing around and gives you a
37:12.18 people-centric view and so that's what
37:14.34 this is right here it's a people-centric
37:16.14 view where it finds everything in common
37:17.76 between two people and so when I go here
37:20.34 I can see all the tasks I have and so
37:21.96 you see it's a lot more than what I
37:23.16 showed you earlier inside of Matrix and
37:24.96 not only that I can see all the due
37:26.40 dates and I can sort my due dates very
37:28.14 very easily imagine if this was my
37:30.60 manager and I go to here and I have this
37:32.40 conversation and then we start talking
37:33.72 about hey by the way what are you
37:35.34 working on what are your priorities well
37:37.02 I can literally pull this up show my
37:39.96 manager and have a conversation and say
37:42.18 by the way like these are all the things
37:43.56 I have on my plate you know which one
37:45.66 you want me to work on like hey can we
37:47.40 move the change of due dates for these
37:48.90 other tasks and so forth very powerful
37:51.24 way to stay aligned the second cool
37:53.94 thing is the ability to add tasks
37:55.92 directly from here
37:57.36 one thing we've seen over and over again
37:58.92 and you know think about the last time
38:0.48 this happened to you you go in a meeting
38:2.22 you talk about all these amazing things
38:4.80 you're going to do and then afterwards
38:7.86 um two weeks later you have a
38:9.78 conversation and someone asks by the way
38:11.40 what was the status of that and suddenly
38:13.86 the answer is like oh I forgot to write
38:15.18 that down right and so which part of
38:17.46 Matrix we encourage you to use this
38:18.96 capability to add share tasks so then
38:20.88 you can actually add the task as you
38:22.68 have that meeting
38:24.30 um perhaps if it's a web call or or
38:26.52 whatever you can go here add a task and
38:28.92 so for example
38:30.66 um
38:31.50 check in with Tom do tomorrow right so
38:35.46 if I do something like that right here I
38:37.92 can actually create the task directly
38:39.72 set the due date already by using the
38:42.24 natural language and then also my
38:44.76 managers assign and then my my I'm added
38:48.24 as a follower so I get a status update
38:49.92 on this and then all I have to do is
38:52.02 choose what project it belongs in
38:54.54 and so I can choose the project from
38:56.16 here and um
38:58.50 and then the which quadrant it belongs
39:1.26 in right the do now or do later and then
39:3.30 click on ADD and that's that's pretty
39:4.86 much it allowing me to add tasks really
39:6.60 really rapidly without having to switch
39:8.64 contacts
39:10.44 the other thing that I think is really
39:12.54 powerful in terms of our integration
39:13.98 Microsoft teams is the ability for you
39:15.72 to actually just convert any chat into a
39:17.94 task so again you're talking to your
39:19.62 manager and the person say hey could you
39:21.36 I actually have a message here could you
39:23.52 follow my time I can literally just
39:25.20 hover over this dot dot dot choose
39:27.30 create party Matrix action item and you
39:29.58 can create the task directly from that
39:31.62 conversation you've just had with that
39:33.24 person when they ask you to do something
39:35.04 right you don't have to switch a part of
39:36.42 Matrix you have to switch to another
39:37.62 application you can create the task at
39:40.38 to the appropriate quadrant create the
39:42.06 appropriate due date directly from here
39:43.62 one of the most amazing thing about this
39:46.02 particular Integrations is the ability
39:47.46 to link back to the moment in time when
39:49.26 you have those conversations so I don't
39:50.82 know if you know again this really
39:52.26 depends on
39:54.24 um your organization and so forth but
39:56.16 imagine if you created a task and then
39:59.22 six six months later you go back and say
40:1.56 wait but wait a minute what was our
40:3.18 conversation around that entire task you
40:5.40 know I lost contacts with part of Matrix
40:7.68 it actually creates a link back to that
40:10.92 moment in time inside teams when you had
40:13.08 that conversation so you know about the
40:15.48 the context this is such a powerful way
40:17.46 to
40:19.02 um remember to remind yourself why you
40:22.20 asked someone to do something Etc so
40:24.48 pretty Matrix link that back to that
40:26.70 message in that moment in time
40:28.80 the other thing you can do inside for
40:30.90 the Matrix 2 is the ability for you to
40:32.46 share tasks directly here again this is
40:34.44 one of those Integrations inside teams
40:36.12 and so if you go to here and you choose
40:37.80 pretty Matrix you can actually attach
40:39.90 part Matrix as as action items right so
40:42.30 I can do that and attach those action
40:43.86 items and what's neat about this is then
40:46.14 my teammate can look at this view the
40:48.12 item or save it or if they have the
40:50.40 appropriate permission they can Market
40:51.66 as done Etc
40:55.62 so that's our Integrations inside inside
40:57.84 teams now we have a lot more
40:59.40 capabilities as well that you know we
41:1.38 don't have the time to go through but we
41:3.18 will have a webinar that's working with
41:4.56 deep dive into the Microsoft teams but
41:6.84 for example I want to show you two which
41:8.70 is for example if you go to the App
41:10.08 Store here and you search for party
41:11.52 Matrix
41:13.08 um
41:14.90 if you search for pretty Matrix
41:17.76 um
41:19.32 one of the things you'll notice is that
41:21.30 you know we have the various
41:22.14 applications but also at the same time
41:23.82 we have workflow so actually we're one
41:26.10 of the launch partner for workflow
41:28.14 inside Microsoft teams allowing you to
41:30.12 create sort of like an if this and then
41:32.04 that environment so
41:34.68 as a way to actually again increase your
41:37.02 productivity uh as you think about all
41:40.14 the automations that you can do as you
41:42.42 use per Matrix more and more
41:44.40 so with that I'm actually
41:47.40 I'm going to jump back into your part of
41:49.14 Matrix because I want to talk about
41:51.06 again how you can get value the most out
41:54.66 of pretty Matrix today because as you
41:57.24 can see there's a lot of capabilities
41:59.00 that may or may not be relevant to you
42:1.56 today and and what happens is each
42:3.48 person here at this com in this
42:5.34 conversation will use part Matrix in a
42:7.62 slightly different way and each team
42:8.88 will use protomatrix in a different way
42:10.62 so my recommendation going back to part
42:13.26 of Matrix is when you open up pretty
42:15.18 Matrix again create a project for those
42:19.20 various areas of responsibilities that I
42:20.88 mentioned your personal tasks the things
42:22.62 you have to do if you manager as well as
42:24.42 your critical project invite the
42:26.64 appropriate people start writing down
42:28.68 the task in there make sure you set due
42:31.08 dates automatically so then the system
42:33.36 will send you the reminders as needed
42:35.10 and then
42:36.66 from there uh use that as a way to start
42:40.02 your day and you look at it and
42:41.46 understand where you need to focus your
42:42.78 time and if you do that then you will be
42:46.08 able to communicate to everyone else
42:47.82 what the priorities are and I think that
42:50.40 you'll get the most out of pretty Matrix
42:51.98 after that you can take some of these
42:54.78 Advanced capabilities and adapt it to
42:57.36 your specific needs because every
42:59.04 organization might be able to leverage
43:0.96 part of Matrix
43:2.16 um in a different way
43:4.14 okay so I see some questions let me take
43:7.14 a look here in the chat um is it
43:9.36 possible to assign uh racy to resources
43:14.58 um in terms we don't have any specific
43:16.68 way for you to to do that but one thing
43:20.16 you can do is you can tag party Matrix
43:23.82 action items so for example let's say I
43:26.58 have a task here there's a tag section
43:28.80 if you tag pretty Matrix you can create
43:31.08 what's called hashtag right so
43:34.02 so um
43:38.52 imagine if if in pretty Matrix you can
43:41.22 create these different hashtags and it's
43:42.66 just a way to organize and classify
43:45.78 tasks Beyond just the item name and
43:49.68 Beyond the icons here and Beyond the the
43:52.68 starring and so you can think of this as
43:55.20 just a way actually in fact if I start
43:56.76 something it gets a special tag called
43:58.50 star and so when you use pretty Matrix
44:0.84 with other methodology around process
44:3.72 improvements
44:5.04 Etc my recommendation is to actually
44:8.28 um tag it and then from there on you can
44:10.74 use it in the appropriate way
44:13.98 um in terms of protection using team's
44:15.72 approval in fact actually that's that
44:17.52 was one of the workflow
44:19.26 um suggestions that we have when we talk
44:21.90 with Microsoft so keep that in that's in
44:24.66 the back burner that's something that we
44:26.10 might actually work on in the future
44:28.08 um the second Point around part of
44:29.52 Matrix working with sharepoints actually
44:31.32 what's really neat is party Matrix also
44:33.48 has what's called a Chrome extension and
44:35.10 an edge extension when user you can go
44:37.50 again to the edge App Store on the
44:38.94 Chrome App Store install protomatrix
44:40.38 sign in with that and if you're browsing
44:42.96 on SharePoint so let's imagine you're on
44:44.76 SharePoint right here you can click on
44:46.74 pretty Matrix and then convert that
44:48.78 SharePoint page into a protomatrix task
44:52.26 so if you were wanting to share a
44:55.38 particular document right from
44:57.48 SharePoint on your internet you just go
45:0.12 to that SharePoint link and you can
45:1.98 attach that link to a product Matrix
45:3.42 task or assign it to somebody so we
45:5.52 don't do any direct Integrations or
45:7.38 changes within SharePoint itself but you
45:9.54 can convert any SharePoint into a task
45:11.22 or attach to SharePoint link for example
45:13.26 let's say imagine again this is
45:14.58 SharePoint I can copy this link I can go
45:17.22 to here paste it in the resource section
45:19.98 um
45:21.00 right and I can change the
45:23.82 uh SharePoint name
45:27.54 example
45:29.10 and so I'm able to create all of those
45:31.32 different links here
45:33.36 um and so have all that come together
45:35.82 and so you can think of at this as a way
45:37.98 to
45:39.24 um
45:40.68 Point part Matrix of various documents
45:42.48 and someone else can click on this and
45:43.86 open the web pages needed now there's a
45:45.84 couple things I didn't go over which is
45:48.24 again the ability for you to attach work
45:50.70 Word documents in it and you'll get to
45:52.50 print Matrix preview and so forth and
45:54.72 then the the other thing I want to
45:56.16 mention for everyone here too is we do
45:57.90 have some other webinars into the
46:0.18 advanced capabilities around pretty
46:1.38 Matrix email management and part of
46:3.48 Matrix as well as a deeper dive into the
46:5.82 Microsoft teams and Outlook and so if
46:7.68 you go to webinar so you
46:9.54 can see those recorded webinars as well
