Draft is a writing app that's a bit more like the individual focused writing apps like iA Writer and Ulysses, only its a web app with an incredibly simple interface. If you want to write without distraction, it's great.
Then, when you need edits, you can edit words and sentences—and include a comment to say why you made the change, Google Docs style. You can share the doc with others to get them to edit it. And you can preview document versions side-by-side with a diff view that shows what changed.
And despite being a small, indie app, it's still alive and maintained—and used daily by its founder, @natekontny.
I still use Google Docs most often for collaborative writing, because it's something almost everyone uses and understands. But if your writing team is looking for a more writing-focused collaboration app, it's worth considering.
Based on Slack pricing other teams shared on Capiche, 70 team members is likely not enough to negotiate a Slack discount, but it's a large enough team that you will likely want a paid plan. The Standard plan is what two-thirds of paying teams use—and it costs $6.67/month per user if paid annually (which for your team would work out to $467 a month, but you would need to pay $5602.80 upfront, plus tax, for a year subscription). Otherwise, the play would cost $8/month per user with a monthly subscription.
But if you want to save, Slack's free plan is used by nearly a fourth of the teams on Capiche. As long as your team doesn't have more than 10,000 messages, or doesn't need to view older messages, you're free to use Slack for free as long as you want.
There are two main approaches that I’ve used: A stream of feedback from users where you see everything that comes in and start noticing trends, or an upvote board where you add ideas once then upvote them each time someone adds a new feature request.
At Capiche right now, we have a #feedback channel in Slack where we share every feature request and idea that comes in. At our current size, it’s an easy way to make sure the entire team sees all feedback. And when several people share the same or similar ideas over time, you start noticing trends and things that should be prioritized.
In my previous team, we used an internal tool where you would add feature requests once and included the users’ email address. When someone else requested the same feature, we’d upvote the request, log their email address as well, and add a comment with any extra details. Over time, the top requests would bubble to the top, and once we added a new feature, we could easily email everyone who’d asked for the feature to let them know it’d shipped. You could build something similar in Trello; there’s a Power Up to vote on cards, and you could list emails in comments. Trick is to only add each idea once, so the list doesn’t go crazy.
Prioritizing and deciding what to focus on is the tough part, but at least the data form users helps surface trends and areas people struggle with or want improved, so even if you don’t ship exactly what they ask for, you know you’re going in the direction they need.
From checking a number of tools, Post Affiliate Pro seems to support the most languages with 36 supported languages today including Chinese, Arabic, Japanese, Turkish, Polish, Russian, Portuguese, Spanish, French, and more. You can add your own translations as well—with a discount on your subscription if you help add a translation. And at the same time, it supports multiple currencies for international sales.
For referrals, InviteReferrals is focused solely on rewarding customers for referring new customers—so you could give your customers (or both the customer and the person they refer) a coupon or gift voucher if they share your page and then someone signs up. It also supports 30 languages including Chinese, Korean, Thai, Hebrew, Arabic, German, French, Russian, and more.
There are a number of larger affiliate platforms that include little detail on their site about internationalization. Performance Horizon's Partnerize (who runs Apple's affiliate program, among others) says it supports 30 languages, and Rakuten Marketing's dashboard is in 5 languages while it says it supports affiliates in 202 countries. Commission Junction lists 6 country sites but doesn't mention supported languages. These each require contacting a sales team to start using their platforms.
Otherwise, many popular affiliate tools only support English or a handful of languages. Tune (formerly HasOffers) supports 14 languages and lets you edit their language files—though only with Enterprise plans. Tapfiliate supports only 6 European languages. LeadDyno lets you fully customize your affiliate site's CSS—and it suggest using that feature to edit the copy on the entire affiliate site. That makes it possible, but far from easy, to internationalize.
A fun newer option I've used for small campaigns is Viral Loops—though they only support English (you could change the form language yourself, but not the dashboard).
Notion has a slightly hidden way to sort database items by author. First, you need to add a new field with a "Created by" field type, then you can sort by that new field, which automatically shows the item's author. This works in any Notion database, including tables, kanban boards, calendars, lists, and galleries.
The easiest way is to click the Properties button above a database view, select Add a property, hover over the Property Type menu that typically selects a "Text" field by default, then scroll down and choose Created By. That will add a new field that shows each item's author's name. You can then sort by that field to sort items based on who added them. Or, repeat the steps and choose Last Edited By to then sort items based on who changed them most recently.
This only works for items in databases; standard pages don't have a way to add a field. You can, though, drag any page into a database in Notion to convert it to a database entry, where the original note creator would show in the Created by field. Or, click the Updates tab on any page or item in Notion and scroll down to the first entry to see who created anything on Notion.
Thanks to @notionHQ for the tip!

If you’ve made changes to a branch, then decided never mind, these aren’t the changes that need to be made, there’s a way to easily clean up the mess. Just delete the branch in GitHub.
To do that, open your repository in GitHub.com, click the Branches button, then click the trashcan icon beside the branch you want to delete. If you’re not an administrator, you can only delete your own branches; you also can’t delete locked branches like the main Master branch or other protected branches.
Or, if you did want to keep the changes but also wanted to clean up your GitHub repository and get rid of the new branch, you’ll first need to merge the changes. Create a new pull request from your new branch, merge the changes into Master from that pull request, then close the pull request. GitHub will then show an option to delete the branch as it’s now redundant.
You can’t delete branches from GitHub’s desktop apps, or from GitHub’s
hub terminal app. You can delete branches from git in Terminal, however, with the
git branch -d branch_name command (see StackOverflow for more details).
The easiest way to download anything from GitHub is to download the entire repository. If you navigate to any repository’s main page, you’ll see a green Clone or download button in the upper right side of the page. Click it, then choose Download ZIP to save a full ZIP file of everything in that repository’s current master branch to your computer.
That might be overkill though if you only want one file. You can download individual files from a GitHub repository, though it’s not quite as direct. Browse to the file you want to download, then click the Raw button. That will typically open the plain text version of the file in your browser, without any of GitHub’s branding or interface. Now, press
S to save the file from your browser, or use your browser’s share menu to save the file on mobile.
If the file type isn’t a text or code file, one that GitHub lets you edit online, then you may see a Download button on the file instead. If so, you’re in luck—click it to save the file to your computer. Typically PDFs and app installers show with download buttons in GitHub.
Have a GitHub repository you no longer need and want to delete? You can remove repositories from GitHub’s repository settings if you’re an admin on that repo. Do note, though, that once you delete a repository, in most cases you cannot restore it.
Once you’re certain you want to delete a repository, click the Settings tab in the right of the repository. Scroll to the bottom of the page to the Danger Zone section, click Delete this repository button, then type the name of the repository and confirm to delete it.
GitHub’s desktop and mobile apps don’t let you delete repositories. Instead, if you’re in the GitHub app, click its View on GitHub button or press the
G shortcut to open your repository online where you can follow the above steps to delete it.
If you use GitHub’s
hub CLI tool, you can delete a repository by entering
hub delete organization/repo in Terminal, replacing
organization/repo with the organization and the repo name, respectively.
When your car has an odd noise at a specific speed in inclement weather, it’s frustrating yet forgettable. When the car won’t start in the morning, though—or, perhaps worse, when it randomly won’t start even after repairs for seemingly no reason—it’s maddening. Something that used to work doesn’t…
Grab coffee at the same café every week, and you’ll rarely think about the order or price. Switch up your routine, though, and you’ll stumble over the order and fumble for additional change. Travel to a new country for a cognitive overload not only in language, sights, and smells, but also in the…
A cardboard sign and chartered plane doesn’t make an airlines, nor a video and signup form an app. But neither does a full-fledged airlines—complete with check-in counters, planes, pilots, and safety videos—guarantee success, nor the most polished app in the App Store.

When Google launched their online office suite with Docs and Sheets in 2006, feature parity with Microsoft Office wasn't the focus. Neither was a price tag of free, or cross-platform support by virtue of being a web app. Instead, Google focused on the pain of emailing documents back and forth to…
Software’s not all that expensive when you buy one app for one person. It saves time and makes you money, and all’s well.
Then your team grows, and by the time you pay for G Suite, Slack, GitHub, and all your other work tools, software’s not such an innocent expense anymore. Pay $75 per person for…
Slack took over modern office communications partly because it's free to start. Any team can sign up for Slack and use all of its core features for free. That's how it slowly got adopted in companies from the bottom up, as smaller teams joined Slack, then got their wider division to start using it…
It starts with a shiny new app in beta, free while you try it out. It sticks, and its paid plans make sense. You happily upgrade and bring your team onboard.

HubSpot starts out cheap—or free, if you use its CRM. But what would your team pay each month if you rolled it out across your company and used its marketing tools extensively?

Email seems impossible to tame. It’s everything: your online address, the bit of identifiable data you use to sign up for apps, apply for jobs, work with clients and colleagues, message friends, follow newsletters, and on and on the list goes. And as such, your inbox isn’t just a list of unread…
The best time to get software discounts is when you first start your business—and to get those discounts, you need to sign up with the best deal. $1,000 off AWS or 30% off HubSpot might sound great, until you realize you could get $100,000 in AWS credit or 90% off your first year of HubSpot with the…
