Regardless of how you use your computer, you probably will often type the same things over and over. If you’re applying for jobs, for example, you might repeatedly type things such as, “I look forward to hearing from you.” and “ If you have any further questions, let me know.”
At Megabite, there are many instances I have to correspond with our clients. Writing brand new proposals for client’s network revamps or new builds. And answer questions regards which digital devices someone should buy. Many of the questions I receive are identical. There are explanations that we have crafted that are so on point that we used them over and over again. Typing that same information over and over is time-consuming and tedious. And that’s why I don’t do it.
Textexpander is a software application that automatically inserts preset snippets of text when you type a short abbreviation. It’s available for Windows and MacOS.
For example, there are times I need to inform a client who will be arriving at their home to help them with issues they are having with their computers. I have created snippets of each of our tech’s biography and all I have to do is type in the abbreviation I assigned to that certain snippet, and the entire text is automatically inserted into the email. The most utilized snippet we use is on the 321 rule.
Textexpander can be used to fill out dates, names, and addresses on forms. Textexpander is also a great utility application for anyone that writes a lot. You can also create snippets for words you often misspell.
Until next time,
