Good point. "Toxic waste dump" +1 to that. Cleaning up our storage has been a "job for the interns" for a while now... We have no interns ;) A robust search capability is probably the one critical…

Ah, Notion. I'm a long time fan, but reluctant to adopt it more broadly @barrald. Do you think it scales well? I get the feeling that it would get too cumbersome with larger teams.

You're right @lebaux - solution should be tailored to the problem. We also Confluence for doc creation and that suits a lot of use cases, but I still run into the times when Word or Excel files are…

That's generally my approach too @adityarao310. I was pretty pumped when GSuite started working with Word and Excel files more cleanly.

I think we're in a similar situation @-c-. Legal and accounting requirements tend to come from outside the company and keep us on MS Office for a few things. It's not a huge issue, of course, but I…

We use a combination of MS Office and GSuite, but I'm a bit over the recurring cost of MS Office when we don't use it all the time. It's something we have in case we get an excel file.

We've been using sherlockscore.com for only a month or two. It's been a huge help measuring activation and adoption and getting Intercom to fire off the right messages at the right moments.

We've decided to start a weekly live show. I'm looking at https://streamyard.com/, but am super curious to hear from this group. Any suggestions?

PandaDoc has been awesome, but it could be overkill if you're just looking for quotes like a Quickbooks/Xero/Wave accounting-type tool give you. I'd still go with PandaDoc for the integrations…

Thanks! I had seen Laura's AMA, but forgot to check it out.

We had integrations built with Integromat, but they would often 'break' and have to be reset so we moved on. Might be worth looking at…

Coffitivity (https://coffitivity.com/) is good for café-style noise. I've also found Brain.fm + noise-cancelling headphones to be super helpful in getting back on track and focusing on a task.

Thanks! We use Buffer, too. MeetEdgar has been on my "to try" list for a while, so I was wondering if it would come up here.

We use Confluence to plan our posts, which means that there's not direct…
