45.16s our
46.44s webinar so um I want to let you know too

1:7.68 to go ahead and jump to this
1:8.64 presentation here again if you have any
1:10.84 questions send them in the chat
1:14.28 okay so my goals for today uh one help
1:17.24 you understand the basics of pry Matrix
1:19.20 and then two provide you a framework to
1:21.32 get the most out of PM with the least
1:23.28 amount of work because that's always our
1:24.76 goal right um and then thirdly to help
1:26.64 you envision what your work and life
1:28.16 success may look like with party
1:31.16 Matrix one thing I always like to talk
1:33.96 about are the challenges that customer
1:35.52 face one thing I've noticed over and
1:37.52 over again is that team members always
1:39.32 have trouble understanding what's
1:40.76 priority right now it is so fascinating
1:43.36 that with all the technology that we
1:45.04 have people still have no idea what
1:47.20 others are working on and why and so
1:50.20 more than half of the people that we've
1:51.84 surveyed struggle with this team
1:53.68 prioritization
1:55.20 aspect and then the Corel to that is
1:57.68 that it's actually very difficult to
1:59.32 keep uh track on the status of work
2:1.84 across many areas of responsibilities if
2:4.20 you're like many others that I've talked
2:5.84 to um which is you no longer have just
2:8.32 one area of responsibility as in one
2:10.84 thing that you're responsible for
2:12.40 instead you're juggling between multiple
2:14.40 things that are actually sometimes
2:15.96 conflicting and so with all of that how
2:18.48 do you decide what to work on how do you
2:20.12 decide where to start your day and given
2:22.60 all these choices and so vast majority
2:25.40 of people struggle with prioritizing
2:27.48 tasks within that context of so many
2:30.48 responsibilities and then thirdly emails
2:32.84 and meetings are just the bane of our
2:35.64 existence for lack of better words it's
2:37.16 just causing far too much contact
2:38.60 switching um i' I myself struggle with
2:40.92 this constantly I get a lot of emails
2:42.80 hundreds of emails per day and so from
2:44.84 that you know I'm always looking at the
2:46.88 emails I'm like okay which one of these
2:48.32 do I respond to which one of these can I
2:49.92 delegate which one of these can I
2:51.24 actually um postpone and then not only
2:54.16 that you're having meetings software
2:55.72 like Microsoft teams or slack or
2:57.52 whatever and people are sending messages
2:59.32 back and forth there too and so what
3:1.56 happens is that with all these software
3:4.44 all these things that's actually taking
3:5.76 our time away we're switching
3:7.32 applications we're switching contexts
3:9.40 often and it's very very difficult and
3:11.40 so a lot of people three-thirds of
3:13.64 people struggle with prioritizing emails
3:16.20 and so if you get more than 5 10 emails
3:18.36 per day I know that um you know it's not
3:21.16 an uncommon challenge where you start
3:22.56 losing track of the most important
3:25.28 emails so what is party matrix it's a
3:28.08 comprehensive email priority and project
3:30.12 management software to help teams manage
3:32.32 emails conduct more efficient meetings
3:33.72 and get real-time status update on
3:35.44 critical projects and priorities at the
3:37.44 end of the day party Matrix is a
3:39.16 communication software so I want you to
3:41.24 be aware of that keep that in the back
3:42.48 of your mind as you look at party Matrix
3:44.44 and it is also just a piece of software
3:47.20 it will not solve everything for you but
3:49.60 what I'll try to my best to do today is
3:52.20 show you how you can tackle some of
3:54.40 those challenges that we talked about um
3:56.40 so that you can be more effective at
3:57.92 prioritizing your task and at least be
4:0.00 on top of things that truly
4:1.92 matter so how does patrix help with each
4:4.68 of these problems that I mentioned
4:6.16 initially first it uses What's called
4:8.24 the four quadrant methodology to promote
4:10.12 effective prioritization now if you're
4:12.20 not aware of what that is we'll go into
4:14.20 a little bit more details around that
4:15.96 particular approach but it is just about
4:18.80 surfacing up and communicating to
4:21.12 yourself and to your co-workers what's
4:23.28 really important and so then you have
4:25.20 one central place where you can see
4:28.64 everything that needs to be done and
4:30.20 that's the key right because if you
4:31.76 don't have a complete perspective then
4:33.80 you cannot decide on what it is that's
4:35.64 most most
4:36.96 important second of all prod Matrix
4:39.12 provide different views such as the
4:40.52 one-on-one the agenda the timeline to
4:43.00 help you understand what needs to be
4:44.20 done within the right context and so
4:45.84 when we talk about context switching we
4:47.40 talk about many errors responsibilities
4:49.52 well the best approach to understand
4:51.28 what to spend your time on then is to
4:54.40 narrow the focus at any point in time so
4:56.68 then you're looking at one area of
4:58.28 responsibility and find out what you
4:59.64 need to do and then you need to switch
5:1.56 contact to um I'm working for client x
5:4.72 what are the things I need to do for
5:6.52 them and then finally party Matrix is
5:8.92 probably one of the best and most best
5:11.00 and most integrated solution in the
5:12.48 Microsoft teams and Outlook ecosystem
5:14.68 for very effective email and task
5:16.40 prioritization in fact we have
5:18.20 capabilities in there to turn emails
5:20.44 into task um attach email to existing
5:23.08 task setting up rules and automations
5:25.40 and so forth and a lot of other
5:26.96 Solutions don't even come close so what
5:30.28 makes p Matrix better is that we're also
5:32.28 Microsoft 365 security certified across
5:34.96 our web app teams app and Outlook app
5:36.80 and so if you um are trying to use prod
5:39.12 Matrix across your organization or your
5:41.04 it team and you know they're trying to
5:43.92 approve it or whatever rest assured that
5:46.44 you can make that request and our
5:47.76 certification makes it so much easier to
5:49.48 get our applications approved so if you
5:51.24 do use the Microsoft ecosystem it's just
5:53.44 another
5:54.28 add-on second um we're constantly
5:56.96 advancing the work that we have and in
5:58.56 fact one of the things that we're doing
6:0.08 is we're using AI to help you achieve
6:2.56 your goals so what that means is help
6:3.96 you generate projects that you need to
6:6.16 um to work on in order to achieve your
6:8.00 goal and then also providing you
6:10.16 training materials and ideas and
6:12.04 suggestions on how to use your spe how
6:14.52 to use P Matrix for your specific
6:16.24 function and challenges so one thing one
6:18.60 side note I want to mention here is um
6:21.60 if you are struggling with using prod
6:23.64 Matrix or you're struggling with project
6:25.32 management and task management and
6:26.68 priority management in general and you
6:28.72 want to share with us those challenges
6:31.24 uh we can actually send us a message and
6:33.88 we can actually send you back you know
6:35.68 training materials to help you tackle
6:37.48 those specific problems so we we'd love
6:39.48 to hear from our customers on how um on
6:42.44 the challenges they face and how they
6:43.84 can use P to tackle
6:47.32 that and then P Matrix Pro excuse me P
6:53.16 Matrix provide what I call people
6:54.36 Centric collaboration uh which means
6:57.40 that not only do you look at everything
6:58.92 from a project standpoints but also from
7:1.20 the perspective of people you know what
7:3.44 are the things you have to do for each
7:4.80 person Etc and then lastly P Matrix is
7:8.04 available as a standard SAS solution
7:9.92 which is vast majority of people use
7:11.44 that but we also have hipa compliance
7:13.36 which is for healthcare Life Sciences as
7:15.36 well as an Azure government Cloud
7:16.92 solution for state and local government
7:19.00 so as you use P Matrix more and you're
7:21.08 expanding the the software usage across
7:22.96 your organization and you need our
7:24.32 Enterprise solution or specialized
7:26.32 solution rest assur that we actually
7:28.00 have those capabilities but also across
7:30.24 teams and Outlook as
7:32.20 well okay so what makes patrix effective
7:35.72 um one it helps you focus on what you
7:37.48 need to work on now what you need to
7:39.32 work on later and what you should
7:40.64 delegate and then finally py Matrix
7:42.64 provide the one place everyone can go to
7:46.40 to know what needs to be done so I want
7:48.60 to again emphasize this last part which
7:50.84 is one as you use part Matrix first as
7:53.72 an individual P Matrix will help you
7:55.88 understand your priorities but then two
7:57.76 as you use P Matrix across your team try
8:0.60 to make sure that everyone knows that if
8:3.48 there's a change in priorities that they
8:5.72 update in PR Matrix so then it becomes
8:7.44 the central place to have everyone be on
8:11.24 the same page and that's the key okay so
8:14.08 I do want to emphasize some of those
8:15.56 things and so you know not everything
8:17.32 can be done by the software it is at the
8:19.36 end of the day up to you and so I want
8:21.68 to emphasize that part and so with that
8:24.72 I'm going to go into the fundamentals
8:26.16 behind prot Matrix in case for those um
8:28.32 who aren't familiar with the four
8:29.76 quadrant methodology I want to start
8:31.88 with the basic which is there's a famous
8:33.96 quote attributed to former President
8:35.40 Eisenhower what is important is seldom
8:37.52 urgent and what is urgence is seldom
8:40.04 important and what I really like about
8:42.16 this quote is it does such a good job of
8:45.24 separating separating the dimensions of
8:47.44 importance and urgency right so we very
8:50.92 very often get confused with urgency and
8:54.12 importance so what I mean by that is
8:56.04 that last email in is typically the
8:58.76 first email will respond right when you
9:0.48 go check your email what do you do you
9:1.76 look at the top of the list and at the
9:3.52 top of the list you go and you respond
9:5.12 that one first is it the most important
9:6.76 I don't know but it's the last one that
9:8.68 I just got so I'm going to answer that
9:9.96 first and so that happens to all of us
9:11.96 and so we mix up the concept of
9:13.60 importance and
9:14.72 urgency so the only way to overcome that
9:17.48 is to take everything that we have to do
9:19.56 and separate them out into these
9:21.68 Dimensions so let me give you an example
9:24.96 let's just say if you take out a piece
9:26.52 of paper right now and you start jotting
9:28.60 down every you have to work on
9:30.24 everything well almost everything
9:32.20 because sometimes you know there are
9:33.60 some things that are so minute and small
9:35.48 that maybe they don't require to be Rin
9:37.56 down or things that are always have to
9:39.08 be done they don't even Rin down right I
9:41.12 don't have to tell you go drink water or
9:42.48 eat food obviously but when it comes to
9:45.00 priorities imagine if you wrote down all
9:47.40 your priorities across all your projects
9:50.08 now the second thing I want you to do is
9:51.96 if you look at that list decide what
9:53.60 needs to be worked on you start at the
9:56.00 top you start at the bottom and if you
9:57.72 have trouble deciding that that's when
9:59.44 we break it into the quadrants so now
10:1.76 what I want you to do then is take that
10:3.72 list and instead of putting into one
10:5.80 linear list we separate into these
10:7.76 buckets so in the top left it's called
10:10.12 the do now these are the important and
10:12.36 Urgent task just think about the tasks
10:15.24 that have to be done and then have to be
10:18.64 done soon right that goes to quadrant
10:20.64 one and then quadrant two are tasks that
10:23.36 are important but not urgent so these
10:25.64 are things that have to be done they're
10:27.08 really crucial to your goals or whatever
10:29.28 it is that you're working in your
10:30.36 project your initiative but they don't
10:32.32 have to be done at this moment and so
10:34.08 that goes into quadrant 2 and then what
10:37.24 are the things that are not important
10:39.04 that you could delegate to others and so
10:40.76 that goes into the delegate box and then
10:42.80 finally the stuff that you don't know
10:44.48 where belongs yet within the quadrant
10:46.08 goes in the inbox so then everything
10:47.88 starts in the Inbox and then from there
10:49.60 you decide within those three other
10:51.76 quadrants where they belong and that's
10:54.20 as simple as that so at the end of the
10:56.28 day party Matrix just takes this very
10:58.24 very simple concept step and then turn
11:0.04 it use the software to actually help you
11:2.52 achieve that and then we add all the
11:4.20 bells and whistles around
11:6.08 delegation around um collaboration
11:8.88 around integrating with everything that
11:10.40 you use so that's all you have to think
11:11.96 about um on what PR Matrix is in a
11:14.64 nutshell now I do want to emphasize a
11:17.00 couple of things from a philosophy
11:18.52 standpoint as you think about how you
11:20.40 spend your
11:21.44 time obviously if you have tasks that's
11:24.24 in the do now quadrants that's where you
11:26.36 should always be focusing your time and
11:28.72 effort
11:29.64 if you start your day before you check
11:31.36 your your emails before you do anything
11:33.04 else start looking at your quadrant one
11:34.96 and start going through the list and
11:36.16 plan for that then what do you do next
11:38.96 right don't work on the stuff that's
11:41.04 urgent but not important you start work
11:42.96 on the things that are important but not
11:44.52 urgent and so then Q2 which is the plan
11:47.08 quadrants is what you want to focus your
11:49.08 time on so one thing that I learned from
11:51.92 a customer that was actually so
11:53.24 insightful was that if you have all your
11:55.88 stuff in quadrant one that means you're
11:58.00 constantly fired fighting that means you
12:0.56 did not do a good job planning and now
12:2.64 everything is urgent and everything is
12:4.48 important and then nothing is because
12:6.80 you've just completely you know mixed
12:9.48 them all together and now you have to
12:11.32 just work work work work so ideally as
12:15.00 you're planning all this out don't have
12:16.60 more than 25% of your things in quadrant
12:18.52 1 and then don't have more than 25% of
12:20.68 the things in quadrant 2 and that's the
12:22.56 whole goal of the prod Matrix to make it
12:24.32 extremely visual for you to see your
12:26.76 priorities hopefully that gives you a
12:28.56 sense of how this all fits together now
12:32.76 here's the next part that's actually
12:34.68 this is the reason why prod Matrix makes
12:36.44 you successful which is take this Matrix
12:39.84 that you've just built with all your
12:41.84 priorities organize into q1 Q2 Q3 and Q4
12:46.52 take this list walk around the office
12:49.12 and start comparing
12:50.92 notes so the four quadrant isenhower
12:53.60 Matrix create alignment because it
12:55.80 forces you to prioritize right so
12:59.00 instead of walking around the office and
13:1.00 showing your to-do list you're showing
13:3.32 your priority Matrix and success from
13:6.36 using promatrix isn't necessar from
13:9.16 finding what everyone agrees on it's
13:10.88 about discovering the disagreement on
13:13.12 what should be a priority when it isn't
13:15.84 and so when you walk around the office
13:17.44 with the Matrix and you you talk to your
13:20.64 manager and you talk to your direct
13:22.04 reports and you all look at it and say
13:24.04 wait a minute I thought that this was
13:26.08 higher priority or this was lower
13:27.60 priority and that that's where all the
13:29.68 magic happens those powerful
13:31.56 conversation on deciding what needs to
13:33.72 be done and what should not be done so
13:36.20 keep that in mind that you know if you
13:39.00 do that and you do get success from that
13:41.44 you're using Prometric correctly because
13:43.68 if you have all this written down all
13:45.40 your priorities but it's siloed no one
13:47.60 knows about it and no one is in
13:49.44 agreements and no one is in alignment
13:51.40 what's the point so I want to emphasize
13:54.56 that if you use prot Matrix for yourself
13:56.76 fantastic every day that you start with
13:58.88 Matrix you look at the the software and
14:0.92 you know what your priorities are if you
14:2.80 use prod Matrix within a team compare
14:4.88 notes constantly compare the M your
14:7.32 Matrix with others Matrix um have
14:9.68 conversations around it okay so with
14:12.28 that I'm going to jump into the demo and
14:13.84 show you how to actually use Prometric
14:16.76 features to actually tackle some of
14:19.24 these challenges that I talked about as
14:21.48 mentioned um there's the chat section so
14:23.84 if you do have questions feel free to
14:25.60 send it and if you don't send it the
14:26.88 chat today in the webinar you can always
14:28.84 email me as well and as I mentioned the
14:31.52 webinars are recorded and we post them
14:33.52 on webinars and then the other
14:36.20 webinars I mentioned around um email
14:39.24 management as well as templates and so
14:40.80 forth you can also find them there to
14:42.32 register and then always always reach
14:44.52 out support we love to
14:46.76 hear from you we love your feedback um
14:48.84 those are the things that actually helps
14:50.08 us understand what are the features
14:51.52 that's important and then also if you
14:53.56 get confused or if you find certain
14:56.04 things challenging in terms of actually
14:58.24 executing sh um those are the feedback
15:0.68 we also want to listen to okay with that
15:3.28 I'm going to jump to the demo and show
15:6.04 you um party Matrix so here I have
15:10.12 priority Matrix open so if you have
15:12.64 party Matrix you should see something
15:14.36 very similar to this which is in the
15:17.16 middle front and center is the quadrant
15:19.68 so here I have the web app open you can
15:21.72 get to the web app by go into our
15:23.20 website and click on web
15:25.36 app or you can click on U or you can go
15:27.92 to Party metric
15:29.20 and so you get the same view
15:31.32 here and so um this is the web app and
15:34.00 so you see how everything that I have
15:36.04 sort of goes into these four quadrants
15:37.88 right I have the Quadrant One the fire
15:39.64 SL do now do later and then quadrant
15:42.88 three that's a delegate quadrants you
15:45.36 can actually customize it you can change
15:46.96 it to file resources and then the Inbox
15:49.84 and so whenever I create a task I have
15:51.88 to decide what quadrant belongs in so
15:53.88 let me give you an example I'm going to
15:55.56 create a task and I'm going to say
15:57.48 followup um um with webinar participants
16:2.88 okay and then I'm also going to say do
16:5.28 tomorrow at 2 pm so what's going to
16:7.92 happen now is that when I click that add
16:10.28 it creates a task for me and because I
16:12.28 said do tomorrow at 2 p.m our system
16:14.08 interprets that and actually set the due
16:15.76 date for me on December 6th at 2 p.m my
16:18.48 local time so when you use pry Matrix
16:21.08 and you create task definitely do this
16:23.24 due date thing um it's so useful I I set
16:26.20 due dates on every single one of my
16:27.72 tasks and the reason I do that is then I
16:29.92 know what needs to be done when right so
16:32.44 don't think about just Tas as a list
16:34.44 think of task as the second dimension of
16:38.12 importance and urgency so if you don't
16:40.12 know when something is due then how can
16:42.08 you figure out when whether it's urgent
16:43.68 or not so that's why setting due dates
16:45.52 is so important and PR Matrix makes it
16:47.40 so easy for you to set that due date so
16:50.36 I could have typed you know do next week
16:52.28 do in one month do in a year um Etc so
16:55.72 directly from there okay so now that
16:58.56 created a task in per Matrix you see how
17:0.20 it puts here in the quadrant here now
17:2.68 when I click on that task it opens
17:4.84 What's called the item details on the
17:7.20 right hand side the item details is
17:9.24 where you add information around the
17:10.88 task so if I'm sure you've used a
17:13.16 bajillion task management software right
17:15.68 everything has an a task name to it
17:17.88 everything has a notes description
17:20.08 everything has a person responible a due
17:22.04 date ET party Matrix is no different
17:23.80 from that so what we have then is we
17:26.16 have the project it belongs in we have
17:28.56 the name of the task um there's a couple
17:30.84 things that's unique about party Matrix
17:32.88 I can go and I can star it and when I
17:35.08 star a task what happens is I actually
17:37.36 get a special report around it so I like
17:39.84 to St tasks that are very important and
17:42.04 that's what's really nice about it is it
17:43.84 helps me stay focused too and so it add
17:47.80 adds another dimension of importance to
17:50.56 the task that I have and then I have
17:52.72 icon so here let's say because it's
17:54.68 email I'm going to go ahead and choose
17:55.84 the email icon here and then the owner
17:58.56 right right now it's delegated to me I
18:0.16 created that task but I can go ahead and
18:2.32 delegate to another person if I needed
18:3.92 to and then next I have progress effort
18:6.72 reminder and dates as you uh see here
18:9.56 the due date is already set but
18:11.20 reminders is actually really neat I want
18:13.64 to emphasize the difference between due
18:15.44 dates and
18:16.44 reminders let's say you have a project
18:19.08 that's due in two weeks and then imagine
18:23.36 you create that task in pry Matrix and
18:25.08 now it's doing two weeks well two weeks
18:26.92 come around and then you the due date
18:29.12 and you realize wait a minute it's going
18:30.32 to take me 3 days to work on this
18:31.80 project how am I going to get that done
18:33.56 I can't get that done in one day so
18:35.36 that's a difference of reminders and due
18:37.08 dates you want to set a reminder to
18:40.00 prior to when you want to finish that
18:42.80 but it's different from a start date as
18:44.48 well because start date means this is
18:45.80 when you start but reminder again is a
18:47.80 way to surface it up to bring it to the
18:50.12 top of the list so then you know to
18:52.64 actually get started so I like to think
18:55.08 of reminders as a cheat to make make
18:58.56 sure that you trick your brain into
19:1.00 thinking that something is urgent
19:2.84 especially when it's important so let me
19:4.72 rephrase that let's just say if I have a
19:8.00 bunch of task or a bunch of emails or
19:10.92 whatever it is guess what the last one
19:12.92 in is the one that you tend to focus on
19:15.72 right so by setting due dates and
19:17.92 reminders in pry Matrix what's really
19:19.72 happening is that PR Matrix will surface
19:22.00 it up to the top of the list for you
19:24.04 automatically so then you know that okay
19:26.84 I actually need to get this done and so
19:29.12 when you have that something like that
19:31.96 happened it ensures that the most
19:33.52 important tasks are work done so here's
19:35.72 how I like to do it so you see how I
19:37.72 have reminders here I actually type at
19:39.56 the very bottom here there's a little
19:41.64 piece of um there's a input box here and
19:44.20 I can say remind me daily so what is
19:48.00 happening now is that I've just set a
19:50.48 reminder in PR Matrix to remind me daily
19:54.44 to get this task done and so if a task
19:56.92 was truly important this thing will bug
19:59.08 me until I get it done and it is so
20:1.48 useful to do that and in fact when I
20:4.08 create tasks for myself in my actual
20:6.00 project I always set due dates I always
20:8.00 set reminders I tend to do reminders you
20:10.48 know I I like recurring reminders
20:12.60 because if with recurring reminders if
20:14.32 it's not done it'll keep bothering me
20:16.40 about it um and so you know you
20:19.20 obviously can click on this button right
20:20.92 here and set the the reminders but I
20:23.16 love typing it into the the chat here
20:25.72 because it's so easy for me to type
20:27.12 remind me daily so obviously I can type
20:29.68 remind me weekly I can type remind
20:31.84 everybody daily remind everybody weekly
20:34.20 Etc and the whole goal around this is to
20:36.72 ensure that everyone knows to get
20:38.24 started on it I'll give you an example
20:40.32 of how I use it as well let's say when I
20:43.16 have to follow with the client um a
20:45.00 customer rather in a year guess what
20:48.04 setting a due date a year from now is
20:49.88 like one thing but what I always do is I
20:51.72 would set a due date a year and then I
20:53.60 set a reminders in 11 months and now in
20:56.20 11 months it actually surfaces up and
20:58.00 like like oh hey I actually got to get
20:59.56 ready for this so I can follow up with
21:0.84 the customer so powerful so useful for
21:3.44 things that are further
21:4.88 out okay now as we go further down
21:7.40 there's the chat section which you see
21:8.92 that I'm starting to type comments in
21:10.44 here the chat section is exactly what it
21:12.96 what it says which is it's a place for
21:14.88 you to have conversation with other
21:16.76 co-workers as well if needed but you as
21:18.80 you can see I can also type commands
21:20.52 right but if you have multiple people
21:22.32 working together it's a very very good
21:24.36 place to have communication and it's
21:26.32 stored within the context of the ask so
21:29.44 often that we have meetings and chat
21:32.44 messages sent back and forth or text
21:34.24 messages or emails and we're talking
21:36.16 about 15 different things and then guess
21:38.48 what two months later you're trying to
21:40.20 go back and you're like what did we
21:41.44 discuss and you've completely lost all
21:43.88 that context so party Matrix has a chat
21:46.72 but it's within the context of this task
21:48.92 so then when you talk about this task
21:50.72 you have this conversation in here and
21:52.56 you have a record of it and when you go
21:54.16 and look at it you see exactly what you
21:56.08 talked about and why and so forth not
21:59.32 only that this chat section offers the
22:1.56 record of all the changes that you've
22:3.60 made such as setting due dates and and
22:6.20 so on one thing I really like about the
22:8.88 chat section is it offers a place for
22:11.44 you to onboard new employees or new
22:13.88 people who are responsible for the task
22:16.16 very easily they can go take over a task
22:19.32 read the chat section and knows exactly
22:22.40 everything about the task so imagine you
22:25.28 have something that's that's very
22:26.60 important and then you know over the
22:28.44 course of six months a year you have all
22:30.36 these history prod Matrix keeps a record
22:32.52 of that for you now hopefully you're
22:35.60 thinking about some use cases as I'm
22:37.32 walking through this um and I am
22:39.56 highlighting the capabilities that I
22:41.04 think are most
22:42.48 powerful and so that you have that chat
22:44.64 right there and then you have the note
22:46.28 section this is where you can add
22:47.56 subtasks and you can add basic
22:49.12 information around the task itself it is
22:51.36 not intended to be rich text because if
22:53.44 you want Rich text that's what Google
22:55.12 Docs or you know Microsoft Word is for
22:57.56 but you then you can link those
22:58.88 documents into PR Matrix the note
23:0.72 section is just intended to you know
23:2.68 allow you to create subtasks very easily
23:4.52 here and then finally you have the
23:5.92 resources section which is where you can
23:7.48 upload files um link to SharePoint link
23:10.48 to drive or if you use other software
23:12.92 web apps or SharePoint or whatever you
23:15.00 can link it all here so prod Matrix
23:17.12 gives you one central place to have all
23:18.80 of that tied together from a task
23:22.04 standpoint and that's what an item
23:23.96 details is and so every task has the
23:25.92 item item details so let me give you
23:28.08 some high level um advice and suggestion
23:30.52 here one if you use party Matrix to
23:32.92 create task always set due dates right
23:35.92 always set reminders and then um when
23:38.68 you delegate you can set the owners here
23:41.28 and what happens is if you need someone
23:43.52 to be notified of all the changes that's
23:45.36 happening to this task add them as
23:47.16 follower so you saw how I created this
23:49.40 task I assigned it to Eugenia but I'm
23:51.24 added as a follower so then when the
23:53.64 this task gets updated I'll get notified
23:55.88 and that's pretty much it from a task
23:57.36 standpoint
23:58.52 let's go back to the Matrix view you saw
24:0.88 how I added this task here in Quadrant 4
24:3.60 as I mentioned I could have added to any
24:5.08 quadrant but now let's just say I want
24:6.48 to make sure that I know that this is
24:8.56 important in urgence well I just drag it
24:10.48 up here to quadrant one and so now when
24:12.68 I look at this and I start my day it is
24:14.60 so visual right and hopefully you get
24:17.60 the same sense which is you know the
24:19.68 problem with the linear list is it's a
24:21.60 list right you have to decide where to
24:24.68 focus your time and effort the whole
24:26.56 point of the Matrix is that it makes it
24:28.80 so it's so visual that I can see that I
24:30.80 need to focus on quadrant one and so
24:32.88 hopefully when you're using patrix move
24:35.00 things around you know shuffle things as
24:37.44 needed um so make it visual for you to
24:39.64 see that and so instead of having one
24:41.16 list you have four lists that's how one
24:42.80 way to look at it the other thing I like
24:44.48 to do too is also I drag this here so
24:47.20 then I can focus my attention on
24:48.88 quadrant one I can focus my attention on
24:50.88 quadrant two right and so it allows me
24:53.60 to actually shift my focus and and see
24:56.48 more of that list
24:58.68 but part Matrix also gives you an
25:0.44 ability to view all this data that you
25:2.52 have from using other views so as I
25:5.40 mentioned in my presentation we have the
25:8.08 list view which is where I can go and
25:10.12 take all the tasks that I have and I can
25:12.04 sort it right I can sort it by do dat
25:14.00 sorted by modify dates sort sorted by
25:15.84 owner and so forth what I like this list
25:19.04 view for is for me to see the task that
25:21.52 overdue it's so easy for me to see the
25:24.08 things that are overdue because they
25:25.28 have the red text here and then I can go
25:27.36 through each of them either change the
25:28.72 due date or or fix it in whatever ways
25:31.28 so that's very
25:32.72 useful then you have the calendar view
25:35.08 so the calendar view takes all the tasks
25:36.68 that you have with due dates and then
25:38.32 shows in a calendar format now of course
25:40.16 things that don't have due date wouldn't
25:41.20 show up on here but if you were
25:43.04 listening to my advice you'd have due
25:44.68 dates on on them right um and then
25:46.76 afterwards you can actually just drag
25:48.08 and drop things and to change the due
25:50.24 date directly from here and of course I
25:52.08 can click on each task and open the task
25:53.88 on the right hand
25:55.28 panel and now if you want to go and look
25:58.00 at even longer time Horizon than we have
26:0.68 the timeline and G chart view so if um
26:3.80 if you have tasks that spans across
26:5.88 multiple days or multiple weeks the
26:7.76 gantar views gives you a much much wider
26:10.56 range of days than just a calendar right
26:12.80 so I can actually go all the way back
26:14.56 from November I can go into January and
26:17.68 I can see how things pan out here and
26:19.88 with party Matrix I can actually link
26:21.64 task together to build dependencies as
26:23.52 well so with dependencies I can say that
26:25.48 task a depends on task B and so forth so
26:28.28 all of that is possible within the
26:29.52 resources
26:30.88 section okay so that's within the the
26:33.52 context of the quadrants um I do want to
26:35.84 quickly mention that in every quadrant
26:38.24 you have this option called the filters
26:40.24 and so sometimes customers U Want ask
26:42.68 questions like hey you know I have all
26:44.44 these task in P Matrix how do I find out
26:46.84 what I've done this past quarter well
26:49.08 why do you want to find that out easy
26:50.80 it's if you're doing a performance
26:52.20 review you want to prove to your manager
26:54.64 look at all the things I've worked on
26:56.00 right py Matrix gives you that view very
26:57.64 very easily you go click on filters you
27:0.08 say finish items and then you choose um
27:4.32 uh the dates from when you did it and so
27:6.68 that allows you to see all the things
27:8.68 that you finished within a certain time
27:10.48 Horizon um or also you want to go and
27:13.24 see tasks assigned to your um direct
27:17.20 reports and see what are the things
27:18.52 they've worked done this past quarter
27:20.08 Etc so pry matrix filter system is very
27:22.92 very useful to to show you whatever
27:24.72 information that you need generally you
27:27.36 just click on you know clear filters and
27:29.32 so you only see the tasks that are open
27:32.04 um but of course you can change it as
27:34.60 needed so now we've talked about the
27:36.64 quadrants we've talked about the item
27:38.28 details let's talk about projects so
27:40.04 what are projects anyway um on the left
27:42.36 hand side here I have a list of projects
27:44.60 you can think of projects in a couple of
27:46.60 ways you can think of a project as an
27:48.36 area of responsibility something you're
27:50.20 working on right you can think of
27:51.88 project as an actual project you know
27:54.04 for example if you're a project manager
27:55.88 and you're managing a project well
27:57.56 that's a project in P Matrix as well um
28:0.08 but you might also have a um you would
28:3.60 call let's just say an initiative so
28:6.08 let's just say if you have an initiative
28:7.96 that says hey this quarter we're going
28:9.28 to achieve X and then you create a
28:11.60 project in P Matrix and now you have all
28:13.40 the goals and tasks just revolving
28:15.92 around that particular initiative in one
28:17.96 central place and then you can involve
28:20.24 all the necessary people and so they
28:22.16 have they're on the same page you might
28:24.20 also have a project for a department so
28:26.64 imagine if you have a marketing
28:27.88 department all the marketing people
28:29.52 might want to be on one project so they
28:31.84 can see the entire Department's priority
28:33.84 list right and so when I think of of
28:37.20 projects in party Matrix I think of them
28:39.40 as transient which means they come and
28:42.52 go right if you have something that
28:44.12 starts you know on a quarterly basis
28:46.44 that's a project that comes and go um
28:48.32 you might have something that's what
28:49.68 called persistent which means they stick
28:51.36 around forever so in our company we have
28:53.84 a project for each one of our uh
28:56.72 applications so our teams app Outlook
28:59.00 app Mac app Windows app IOS app each of
29:1.84 those have their own project in py
29:4.24 Matrix along with all the task and
29:6.36 features and work that we have of course
29:8.64 you can imagine those projects are
29:9.88 massive they've been around for more
29:11.72 than a decade and so they have massive
29:14.00 list of features and so forth but it's
29:16.40 so powerful because someone can take a
29:18.20 look at that that Matrix and see
29:20.40 everything that they have in the history
29:22.28 of everything that we have for that
29:23.68 project it allows you to keep people on
29:25.72 board um keep people up to date so
29:28.20 easily and then at the same time party
29:30.16 Matrix hides everything that's not um
29:32.16 important right now so that's a
29:34.56 persistent project so when you use part
29:36.44 Matrix um I have a couple
29:38.00 recommendations one I always think that
29:40.56 you should have a personal priority
29:42.44 project because at the end of the day
29:44.40 it's about you right you're here today
29:46.72 because you're interested in become more
29:48.24 effective at PRI prioritizing your task
29:50.92 therefore you should have a matrix to
29:53.72 just write down all the tasks that you
29:55.36 have so you can think about it and you
29:57.32 you have a one place where you can um
29:59.80 you know take the stuff out of your
30:1.08 brain and get it down on something
30:3.56 tangible even if it's digital um but
30:6.04 patrix just gives you a very good
30:8.04 perspective on that then you should have
30:10.40 a project for team priorities and when I
30:12.60 say team priorities this is a little bit
30:14.00 more flexible but if you manage a team
30:16.56 you should have a project with all your
30:18.04 delegates in there and then if you or if
30:20.64 you're part of a larger team um you
30:23.04 should have a project with your manager
30:24.56 so then your manager can look at it and
30:25.96 see what are your priorities right right
30:28.68 and then finally you should have another
30:30.32 project around key initiatives or goals
30:32.84 that you have for this quarter or this
30:34.60 this month or whatever it is um and so I
30:36.88 think those are the three projects that
30:38.92 you should always start with and then
30:40.96 from there you can expand um so I have
30:43.36 personally several hundred I want to say
30:45.32 like 300 projects or so across all of
30:47.92 the things that I have and it's you know
30:49.96 everything from again transi or
30:51.52 persistent so forth but with part Matrix
30:54.00 I actually can go and um have a very
30:56.68 easy time understanding what I need to
30:58.20 work on and there's a couple of ways let
30:59.72 me show you how that
31:0.92 works on this left hand panel you see
31:3.44 how I have my list of projects right I
31:5.80 can choose jump between different
31:7.44 projects now when I choose a project
31:10.00 what happens is I can actually see
31:12.04 what's called the project details so we
31:14.64 talk about the item details where we can
31:16.16 edit information around the items well
31:18.04 the project details let me edit the
31:19.44 project itself so I the project name but
31:22.20 here's the cool thing I can start a
31:23.88 project what it happens then is when I
31:26.00 start a project it gives me a sense of
31:28.48 okay these are the project that are high
31:30.40 priority right and then of course you
31:32.52 have the task that are high priorities
31:34.40 inside the project that high priorities
31:35.92 since those should be the highest
31:37.00 priorities for lack of better words and
31:39.20 then down below that you have the people
31:41.20 the team members involved in it so um
31:43.80 when you create a project you can have a
31:45.16 project just for yourself you can also
31:46.88 have a project for you and multiple
31:48.56 co-workers Etc anyone who's in this
31:51.64 project um gets full visibility into all
31:54.56 the priorities they can make all the
31:55.80 changes and so forth part Matrix lets
31:57.92 you create readon views and so forth but
32:0.92 um in general usually my recommendation
32:3.40 is just add the team members who needs
32:5.64 to be in the project so they can see all
32:7.44 the task and then you know they can go
32:9.72 and Mark Tas is done and so forth you
32:11.32 can delegate to them and then below that
32:14.00 you have the quadrant names um now
32:15.96 what's really neat is I told you around
32:18.44 the the Eisenhower Matrix and the do now
32:20.56 do later and so forth but in reality you
32:23.76 know party Matrix is flexible in reality
32:27.12 when you work with something like with
32:29.44 prod Matrix you might want to change the
32:31.48 quadrant names to something that more
32:33.68 reflects the uh the way you work or the
32:36.28 way your organization works so we let
32:38.48 you or uh rename these quadrants to
32:40.88 whatever it is that you need so for
32:42.20 example you saw how instead of do now I
32:44.52 have fire do now so I can just click on
32:46.64 each of these quadrant names to change
32:48.00 it I can also click on the quadrant
32:50.04 colors and change it now why do you want
32:52.40 to change the quadrant colors I like to
32:54.64 change quad quadrant colors to maintain
32:57.24 different them for different types of
32:59.44 project that I work on so then on the
33:1.00 left hand side it's very visual for me
33:2.44 to see okay these are my you know
33:4.68 marketing projects these are my
33:6.40 engineering project and so forth um and
33:8.88 then also you can actually customize
33:12.72 this in a way that makes sense to you so
33:14.96 for example instead of having a delegate
33:16.88 box you see how I have fires and
33:18.52 resources once you've made all this
33:20.56 customization you can go up to the top
33:22.72 right here and save project as template
33:26.24 what this allows you to do is when you
33:28.76 create projects in P Matrix you can
33:30.60 actually choose from templates that
33:32.44 you've created using the terminologies
33:34.40 that you care
33:35.44 about in fact um we have several hundred
33:39.96 types of different project naming
33:41.56 conventions that you can use for free um
33:44.32 just by going to our website and then
33:46.16 checking all the different matricies
33:47.60 that we have and the reason you have
33:49.48 that is because you can think of
33:51.16 anything that's in the 2x two Matrix the
33:53.04 two Dimensions importance and urgency
33:55.80 right those are two dimensions but you
33:57.64 can also look at effort and impact right
34:0.16 that's another dimension and so you've
34:2.16 probably heard of strength weakness
34:3.76 opportunity threats that's from business
34:5.52 school where you have um you want to do
34:8.56 market analysis Etc so part Matrix gives
34:11.12 you that infinite flexibility and then
34:13.32 once You' created the projects that you
34:14.84 care about or the name and Convention
34:16.12 you care about you can save it as a
34:17.68 template okay so that's how you modified
34:20.60 a temp uh a project name so now going
34:23.24 show you how to create a project on the
34:25.52 left hand side here under project I can
34:27.44 go create project right create project
34:30.80 when I create project I have several
34:32.52 options the first I have a blank project
34:34.68 when I create a blank project literally
34:36.64 the project will have nothing in it I
34:38.36 can just choose the project name I can
34:40.48 choose some basic templates here and
34:43.04 then I can choose a color that's pretty
34:44.56 much it but I can also create a a
34:47.84 project from um public templates so I
34:51.04 mentioned how we have hundreds of
34:52.48 templates well these are a few dozen
34:54.16 templates that we've selected and from
34:56.12 here you can can actually uh choose one
34:58.40 of these types of projects and create a
35:0.80 project from that those templates and
35:3.04 then you can also have my templates and
35:4.96 so these are project templates that
35:6.44 you've created and you've saved within
35:8.84 your organization and so this gets
35:10.36 shared across your team so when you
35:12.12 create a project template input Matrix
35:14.60 you can share with your team members and
35:16.44 allows you to actually leverage each
35:18.56 other's knowledge um to become more
35:20.52 effective more quickly and then finally
35:22.92 you have the option to create with AI
35:25.44 this is actually pretty straight forward
35:28.00 it says type your goal and when you type
35:30.20 your goal in here you press create and
35:32.08 so it takes around a minute or so but
35:34.28 our AI will actually generate a project
35:36.68 for you based on your goals along with
35:38.96 suggestions on how to tackle that so if
35:41.40 you're interested in that I recommend
35:43.52 you know during this webinar or after
35:45.76 this webinar open up your prot Matrix
35:48.00 sign in create those projects that I
35:49.80 mentioned and then try one of the AI
35:52.12 projects to see if it's something that
35:53.68 actually could be helpful to you
35:55.32 examples let's say you want to be
35:57.20 promoted right to a senior position well
35:59.96 type that in and see what party Matrix
36:1.80 says or let's say you want to improve
36:4.08 your marketing or your U manufacturing
36:6.64 processes type that in and see what P
36:8.88 Matrix comes up with so that's how you
36:11.48 create a project so now um I've showed
36:14.64 you how to create projects I've shown
36:16.08 you how to customize projects I've shown
36:18.00 you how to create tasks I've shown you
36:19.24 how to customize tasks let me switch
36:21.00 gear a little bit and talk about emails
36:22.84 because that's the bane of our existence
36:24.72 we had so many emails um in fact fact
36:27.60 you know if you are like me you probably
36:29.72 get so many emails and I'm guilty of
36:31.36 this by the way which is I get an email
36:33.16 and sometimes I flag them it's great if
36:35.76 I have only Five Flags emails but if I
36:37.76 have dozens or hundreds of flags emails
36:40.56 it becomes impossible to manage so with
36:43.76 part of Matrix I can actually turn an
36:45.20 email into a task and then from there I
36:47.88 can actually set all those due dates I
36:49.92 can delegate I can prioritize those
36:51.76 emails and I Leverage The Power of the
36:54.28 Matrix and put it onto the emails
36:56.84 themselves so let me give you an example
36:58.72 here I have Outlook open by the way of
37:1.56 course you know I'm showing outlook for
37:3.60 web here but PR matric uh has Outlook
37:6.48 Integrations for web for desktop for
37:9.68 mobile um Etc all of those okay so to
37:13.00 get prod Matrix for Outlook you simply
37:15.16 go to the app store and then click add
37:18.32 apps and then choose prod Matrix and
37:20.16 then you can install party Matrix and
37:21.44 then sign in with the same account that
37:22.80 you have but of course I already have
37:24.32 party Matrix installed so I'm going to
37:25.64 go ahead and choose party matx here so
37:27.96 now I've taken an email and from that
37:30.60 email I click on the app and then I
37:33.56 click on party Matrix I have two options
37:36.44 I can prioritize this email or open p
37:38.48 Matrix I'm going to go ahead and choose
37:40.08 prioritize email now look what happens
37:43.48 the right hand side changes and now I
37:45.76 have the ability to turn any email into
37:47.76 a task all I have to do is click on
37:49.80 capture email but I can customize this a
37:52.32 little bit I can change the name of the
37:53.96 task I can change what project it
37:55.96 belongs in so party Matrix just chooses
37:57.96 a project for you but you can decide
38:1.12 what project belongs in let me give you
38:2.80 an example let's say you get a client
38:5.16 email right an external customer sent
38:7.40 you an email uh now that email may
38:10.08 involve a task and you need to delegate
38:11.84 to somebody well this is where you go in
38:14.92 choose the project that is relevant to
38:17.40 that customer and then choose what
38:19.48 quadrant this belongs in right if it's a
38:21.36 very important email that's got to be
38:22.80 done now choose quadrant one if it's an
38:24.80 important email but doesn't have to be
38:26.08 done at this moment choose quadrant 2
38:28.40 and then next to it you can delegate to
38:30.16 somebody else so you can see how again
38:32.52 in the beginning it just delegates to me
38:34.72 right because I created but I can go and
38:36.20 change the owner now Eugenia will go and
38:38.72 get a notification that I've created an
38:41.84 email from a task and delegate it to her
38:44.76 and then of course set a due date right
38:46.84 I could say due on that day uh and then
38:50.08 I just click capture email and that's it
38:52.20 so the moment I click capture email the
38:54.52 right hand side changes into the item
38:56.96 details and this is exactly the same as
38:59.00 what you saw in the web app what project
39:1.00 belongs in the the name of the item you
39:3.76 can star it the owner you're a follower
39:6.32 on this task so eugia updates it you get
39:8.52 notification and then you get progress
39:10.68 effort you can set reminders you have
39:12.60 the chat section here now there's one
39:14.40 difference which is in the resources
39:16.68 that email is uploaded for me so what's
39:19.92 really neat is Eugenia when she gets
39:22.16 this message she can actually open the
39:24.36 email that I've attached so then she can
39:27.12 open that email look at it respond to it
39:29.68 Etc directly from um from her perto
39:33.28 Matrix account but let's just say that
39:37.68 the customer sent me an email but it
39:39.88 actually belongs in an existing task
39:42.44 well party Matrix is the only software
39:44.12 that I'm aware of that lets you attach
39:45.84 email to existing tasks as well so
39:48.56 sometimes it doesn't make sense to
39:49.68 create more and more tasks right
39:50.96 especially if it's a followup so instead
39:53.00 of actually prioritizing the email I can
39:55.64 open pry matx and now what I can do is I
39:57.96 can attach an email to an existing task
40:0.28 so when I go to this view you see it
40:1.84 looks a little bit different um I can
40:4.00 search for a PR Matrix item and then
40:5.88 instead of creating a new task I just
40:7.52 hover over that item and then choose
40:9.80 attach so what that does is it'll take
40:12.96 this email attach an existing task and
40:14.76 then I can have 5 10 emails right bunch
40:17.44 of Word documents PowerPoint Etc all
40:19.56 linked together in one central place and
40:21.80 then we know exactly what priority that
40:23.56 is because you know it's in the right
40:24.88 quadrant and so on um but also part
40:27.84 Matrix when you open this view party
40:29.88 Matrix will show you that hey this email
40:31.72 has already been prioritized you can
40:33.48 click open item here and take a look at
40:35.36 it um at the same time on inside the
40:38.12 Outlook itself you see how this email
40:40.48 has been prioritized and so the tag part
40:42.36 Matrix shows up very visual looks just
40:45.40 like a flag emails the only difference
40:46.96 is it says part Matrix so personally um
40:50.48 I use I prioritize a lot of emails just
40:53.32 because I have to um party Matrix has
40:55.68 multiple ways of prioritizing emails you
40:57.84 can actually also forward prod Matrix
41:0.88 into um I'm sorry you can forward any
41:3.16 emails into prod Matrix as well so every
41:6.52 person you know every account has an
41:8.80 inbox address so what that means is I
41:11.16 can actually copy my inbox address and I
41:13.76 can forward my email to it in fact
41:15.08 that's what I do all the time on my
41:16.64 mobile device which is when I'm out and
41:18.96 about I get an email from a customer and
41:21.20 now I need to make sure that I don't
41:22.64 forget it right again I can't just flag
41:24.76 it U because I'll probably forget it
41:26.80 give within the context of everything I
41:28.20 have or let's say I have to delegate it
41:30.04 I can actually forward that email into
41:32.44 my inbox set a due dates and then I'm
41:34.56 able to prioritize that um so part of
41:38.24 Matrix has a lot of flexibility and also
41:40.44 couple other things which is every
41:41.92 project in prri also has an email
41:43.84 address so you can actually create all
41:46.08 sorts of fancy rules that allows you to
41:48.40 ensure that anything that's relevant can
41:50.72 actually be Associated within the
41:52.20 appropriate quadrant inside pry
41:54.12 Matrix so that's how email integration
41:56.76 works now we also have Integrations
41:58.96 inside Gmail um it's not as powerful as
42:1.28 Outlook just because of the way Gmail
42:3.52 works but by using the inbox address and
42:6.04 in Gmail it actually works extremely
42:8.12 well now I'm going to switch gears over
42:10.28 to Microsoft teams um so promatrix is
42:13.12 probably the most integrated solution in
42:15.12 teams with respect to the features that
42:16.88 we have so the way you use the teams app
42:19.56 is you click on the App Store search for
42:21.60 prod Matrix and install it and when you
42:23.36 do you can click on PR Matrix here and
42:25.64 then you right click and pin it so I
42:27.72 recommend if you do use part Matrix pin
42:30.04 it inside teams allow you to access it
42:32.00 very easily now as you can see when I
42:34.20 open PR Matrix inside teams it looks
42:36.24 almost identical to my Outlook I'm sorry
42:38.12 to my web app right and that's the point
42:40.12 you have your list of projects and then
42:42.20 you can click on a project and you
42:43.48 actually jump into the details of the
42:46.32 project and this allows me to not switch
42:48.84 contacts as often because you know if
42:51.44 you're in teams and you're chatting with
42:52.84 somebody in teams and you want to add
42:54.72 something to Pro Matrix I would hate to
42:56.92 have to open the web app or go to prym
42:58.84 Etc so the point is have this
43:2.04 accessible at all at all time um now
43:4.96 this view that I have here is called the
43:6.52 home view to get to the home view you
43:8.48 click on this home icon here so what's
43:10.56 in the home view the home view tells you
43:13.00 what are the items that requires your
43:14.52 attention so we talked about due dates
43:17.16 reminders and how you might be delegated
43:19.36 to task or get updates and so forth well
43:21.32 it all shows up here in the
43:23.00 alerts so I have a number here it tells
43:25.52 me that I have task that requires my
43:27.04 attention you know I can click through
43:28.96 each of these right and I can actually
43:30.72 see the task and as I go through them I
43:32.96 can look at the item details and know
43:34.88 exactly what the changes are and and why
43:36.96 it's popped up once I'm done I can also
43:39.48 clear all the old notifications or
43:42.28 notification for finish item and if I
43:44.28 get to zero here that means I've also
43:46.44 achieved inbox zero with respect to
43:48.88 notifications and now that nothing
43:50.44 requires my
43:51.96 attention so when you have a task in PR
43:54.88 Matrix and you set a doe dat dates and
43:56.76 then you set those daily reminders
43:58.96 that's how you get alerted on when you
44:1.44 need to actually work on it right so
44:3.56 those daily reminders will pop up here
44:5.24 in the alerts and you're constant
44:6.96 reminded to work on that task and so
44:9.12 when when I have a task and I set those
44:11.28 daily reminders I'm constant reminded
44:14.44 all the time that I need to work on that
44:16.20 task and and because of that I don't
44:17.92 drop the most important ones so I
44:19.68 recommend that you do those reminders
44:21.60 those recurring reminders for that
44:23.88 reason okay now let me show you some
44:25.76 featur That's Unique inside teams with
44:27.92 petrics if you go to a chat with
44:30.28 somebody inside teams one of the things
44:32.44 you can do is open What's called the
44:34.00 one-on-one view so instead of looking
44:37.80 at just the list of projects that you
44:40.60 have PR Matrix allows you to also look
44:42.72 it from a people perspective so as you
44:45.28 can see I open this oneon-one with
44:47.16 Eugenia I can select Eugenia here and
44:49.80 now I see all the tasks I have in common
44:52.00 with her across all of my matrices
44:56.56 let me give you what an example why this
44:58.16 is so powerful let's just say if you're
45:1.16 a manager and you're working with your
45:4.20 delegate your direct report and you're
45:6.36 trying to see hey are my direct reports
45:8.68 working on these other tasks you know
45:11.36 for client a or this other task for
45:13.56 Project B right what are the things that
45:15.40 are overdue so by going to the oneon-one
45:17.76 and looking at that person you can
45:20.40 actually the task name you can see all
45:22.28 the tasks that are overdue regardless of
45:24.32 the project they're in and as long as
45:26.52 you and that person are in the task
45:28.44 together right so one of you is the
45:29.88 owner one of you is the delegate and so
45:33.88 um and so when you look at this view it
45:36.68 is so useful because if you're having a
45:38.68 meeting with one another and you're
45:40.44 trying to talk through priorities guess
45:42.36 what you don't have to open Party Matrix
45:43.92 and jump to different projects you can
45:45.64 just go down this list change the due
45:47.52 date as needed and then all the things
45:49.00 that are overdue shows up red allows you
45:51.32 to focus your time real quick now to add
45:54.40 the one-onone view you just simp simply
45:56.12 click on the plus here choose party
45:58.64 Matrix and
46:0.44 then um and then choose oneon-one view
46:4.36 here now if you use party Matrix and you
46:6.80 use Microsoft teams I generally
46:8.60 recommend that you add this oneon-one
46:10.00 for every single one of your direct
46:11.56 reports that you work with and then you
46:13.56 know select that direct reports and now
46:16.12 it's so helpful because you'll have a
46:18.16 lot more efficient meetings and
46:20.44 effective meetings because you can just
46:22.32 jump right into the tasks that matter
46:24.80 most now let me show you something else
46:27.04 too which is in the chat section with
46:28.88 somebody in teams one of the things you
46:30.68 can do is you can actually convert any
46:32.68 message insti teams into a task as well
46:35.24 so you see how someone might send me a
46:36.76 message could you send me a report I can
46:38.72 hover over this ellipses here and create
46:41.08 PM item so then if I'm talking to my
46:43.92 manager or I'm talking to my direct
46:45.72 report and and we're sending message
46:48.80 back and forth and one of needs to be
46:50.12 converted into a task so easy I don't
46:52.08 have to open for Matrix I can just click
46:54.12 on that comment uh the other thing I can
46:56.36 also do is I can actually send party
46:58.12 Matrix task here as action cards and the
47:1.64 whole point of sending action cards is
47:3.56 to let the other people see the task the
47:6.08 party Matrix task directly inside teams
47:8.44 without having to go to party Matrix so
47:10.56 let me give an example of when I use
47:12.12 this which is I delegate something to
47:13.68 somebody and then crickets as in I don't
47:16.12 hear back from them on on the status
47:18.04 update well I would go into my teams app
47:22.56 go down here select this and then send
47:24.44 that task to them and say hey by the way
47:25.88 did you get a chance to see this right
47:27.36 so that allows them to open up that
47:28.80 party Matrix task and respond to it as
47:31.28 needed so party Matrix also has
47:33.88 Integrations with your meetings um we
47:36.08 also have Integrations with Microsoft
47:37.96 co-pilot if you're using that at an
47:40.00 Enterprise level and then we also have
47:42.24 Integrations with Microsoft teams
47:44.08 workflow so that allows you to create
47:46.12 all sorts of automations as well so
47:48.12 those are beyond the scope of today's
47:49.64 webinar but I want you to know and be
47:52.00 aware that with part Matrix you have
47:53.84 that infinite flexibility
47:56.28 so with that I'm going to recap jump
47:58.44 back to my presentation um summarize
48:0.84 what we've talked about and then take a
48:2.32 look to see if there's any questions so
48:3.84 if you do have questions send them in
48:5.40 the chat now and I'll take a
48:7.32 look all right I'm going to go back to
48:9.64 my presentation here and let's summarize
48:12.48 what we've talked about so now it's up
48:14.80 to you it's on you to sign up for per
48:17.60 Matrix if you haven't already and then
48:19.16 if you do use teams and Outlook make
48:20.76 sure you install the application um as
48:22.92 you can tell you do not require you do
48:25.32 not need teams and Outlook to use prot
48:27.40 Matrix but if you do have teams and
48:29.04 Outlook definitely install them for for
48:31.48 um for your account and then I do
48:34.44 recommend again to create three projects
48:36.52 a personal priorities a share team
48:38.16 priorities and key initiative and then
48:40.00 of course try out that AI project if you
48:42.28 have a specific goal in mind like again
48:44.60 getting promoted or something else and
48:47.60 then invite the appropriate team members
48:49.56 and Pitch them on why it's important to
48:51.04 focus on high impact task I can't
48:53.04 emphasize this enough which is
48:57.04 party Matrix is a communication tool
48:59.16 right and so as a communication tool
49:1.28 what we're doing is we're helping you
49:3.40 communicate to others what you think
49:5.24 your priorities are and the whole point
49:7.60 is to get a really useful and helpful
49:9.88 conversation that's to the point when
49:12.04 you have a meeting inside party Matrix
49:13.88 I'm sorry when you have a meeting you
49:15.60 know a physical meeting in an office one
49:18.00 of the recommendations that I have is
49:19.84 Project party Matrix on the big
49:22.56 screen your conversation will be so much
49:25.20 more persective because instead of
49:27.28 jumping around and you know trying to
49:29.12 talk through all these different tasks
49:30.36 and then realizing afterwards that you
49:31.72 never got to your most important task by
49:33.76 projecting part Matrix onto the big
49:35.24 screen everyone can hone in and focus on
49:38.40 the key task and then um when you create
49:41.36 task in sear Matrix set due dates I
49:43.84 highly recommend due dates I highly
49:45.28 recommend reminders and then I highly
49:47.36 recommend that you use the quadrant to
49:49.72 its full potential right use it to
49:51.84 organize the information that you have
49:54.52 and then I also say Ruth LLY prioritized
49:56.56 and what that means is that you know if
49:58.16 you don't prioritize your time you don't
49:59.76 prioritize your task someone else will
50:1.96 so it's up to you to do that
50:4.40 part um some advice I you know sometimes
50:8.64 customers would struggle with managing
50:11.84 their task inside pry Matrix because
50:13.36 maybe they've created too many well if
50:14.96 that's the case take a step back and
50:17.52 track higher impact task right the
50:20.04 things that are actually important and
50:21.28 so use party Matrix for what it does
50:23.84 best which is to ensure that you are
50:25.96 prioritizing the key task um use your
50:29.60 party Matrix as a communication tool as
50:31.68 I mentioned with your manager as well as
50:34.08 your team members so think of it as a a
50:36.64 fractal right your priorities for um
50:40.00 initiative might have multiple projects
50:42.16 and from that you might have multiple
50:43.56 priority level from each of those
50:45.16 priority level you might have a project
50:47.04 associated with with more priorities and
50:48.68 so forth and so you might have a matrix
50:52.16 that's PRI for tracking priorities with
50:54.00 your manager and then you have a matrix
50:55.52 for tracking your priorities your sub
50:57.76 priorities think of it that way with
50:59.76 each of your direct reports and so PR
51:2.00 Matrix Works across all of those levels
51:4.36 and then make sure that you use P Matrix
51:6.28 to manage your individual goals the root
51:9.24 of prod Matrix is in individuals because
51:11.56 I think that you know if we can't help
51:13.52 you as an individual prioritize your
51:15.16 task oops the point in in doing anything
51:18.12 else so hopefully you find promatrix
51:20.48 useful for
51:22.08 that and so what would success would
51:24.44 patrix looks like it will be the one
51:26.68 central place to track all your
51:28.44 priorities as well as all your team
51:30.04 priorities right everyone should be able
51:31.56 to know exactly what everyone else is
51:33.44 working
51:34.28 on and then if you have repetitive
51:36.72 procedures those are templatized like I
51:38.92 mentioned um to save you time on future
51:41.12 work and then important emails are
51:43.16 prioritized and triage and never
51:45.36 forgotten as mentioned you know I will
51:47.76 have the other webinars that dive deeper
51:49.64 into the templates as well as email
51:52.00 prioritization so if you're interested
51:53.84 make sure you sign up for that and with
51:55.72 that I conclude my presentation now if
51:57.84 you have any questions I look at them
51:59.44 right
52:5.64 now um so someone mentioned that you
52:9.48 have audio problem uh so don't worry
52:11.84 we'll re sending out the recording of
52:14.12 This webinar afterwards so hopefully
52:15.48 you'll get a um better perspect uh
52:19.08 better audio quality
52:21.80 then um so the other question is
52:24.96 security and adding emails that contain
52:26.60 customer information that's a fantastic
52:28.12 question so we have as mentioned
52:30.04 multiple versions of pry Matrix so of
52:32.20 course you have your standard solution
52:34.00 uh the SAS solution and so in that case
52:35.64 when you do upload the emails it goes
52:37.20 into our system we also have the Hippa
52:40.00 compliant solution as well as the
52:41.60 government Cloud solution so if you use
52:43.52 the government Cloud solution for
52:44.76 example when you upload the emails it
52:46.16 actually goes into the government Cloud
52:48.12 version of our software and then finally
52:50.28 we also have the ability for you to turn
52:51.88 on um what's called your Microsoft
52:55.84 uh one drive Integrations and so in that
52:58.00 particular case when you upload an email
53:0.04 the EML file is actually uploaded into
53:2.40 the administrators of one Drive account
53:5.40 so if that is helpful in terms of
53:7.60 managing security that's that's also an
53:9.76 option for for all our paying customers
53:11.84 as well um and then finally we have an
53:13.72 aner prise solution of PR Matrix which
53:15.44 means you can have private deployment
53:16.72 and so forth so there's a bunch of
53:18.80 different ways in terms of how you
53:20.44 manage the information in PR Matrix you
53:23.20 also have the option um when you create
53:26.12 a task with email let me show you here
53:29.12 option here when I go back to my email
53:31.84 prioritization and uh my email Outlook
53:35.20 integration I can actually click on this
53:38.32 option here and then choose settings and
53:40.60 from here I can say I can change the
53:42.96 various options I can upload the message
53:46.24 as a body the essentially the message
53:48.44 from the email as the body in my item
53:50.32 notes um I can attach the original email
53:53.08 so if you attach the EML file for for
53:55.28 example then even if you delete the the
53:57.80 file from your email account that email
54:0.04 file is still in P Matrix and someone
54:1.52 else can open it right so if you
54:2.92 delegate that to somebody else they can
54:4.52 still access it and then you can also
54:7.28 just link the email to patrix so then
54:10.84 instead of uploading the um email into
54:13.88 party Matrix it actually gives you the
54:15.80 option to link to it which means if you
54:17.48 click on that link it opens up part
54:18.96 Matrix I'm sorry open up your outlook
54:21.12 and jump to that email in the web app
54:23.92 hopefully that answer your questions
54:25.16 around email management and the options
54:28.76 there great are there any other
54:31.80 questions um as mentioned uh I'll send
54:34.20 out the recording for this webinar
54:35.48 afterwards and if you have any questions
54:36.92 or use cases uh questions Etc please
54:39.96 send us a message send me a message high
54:41.72 or support uh we'd be
54:44.68 happy to address them or if you have
54:46.20 questions around our hipa compliant
54:48.32 Azure uh government Cloud solution or
54:50.64 Enterprise solution as well thank you
54:53.24 very much for your time I appreciate it
54:55.28 hopefully this was
55:6.60 helpful
