How To Take Notes While Mobile With the IBM Connections iPad App

View Comments
As I get ready to go to IBM Insight next week it occurred to me that it's good timing to talk about a question that I've gotten recently. Specifically, some colleagues have been asking about a way to take notes while traveling for a customer meeting or industry conference.

The way I do it is with the IBM Connections iPad app.  In the demo below, you'll see how to start creating a note from scratch.  One of my favorite capabilities is that you can co-edit with multiple people at the same time.

So imagine going to a conference and you and other colleagues at all taking notes in the same place without overwriting each other.  Perhaps one of you is taking pictures during the keynote and adding them to the note, while the other is writing down key bullet points.

Once you are done, you can publish the note and make it available to other colleagues in the organization that perhaps couldn't travel to your meeting.

Because this is all done inside the Connections app, the document security is kept and you don't need to take it out to another editor, and then bring it back.

So what do you need to make this happen? Whether you are a cloud or on-prem customer all you need is the latest version of our free iPad mobile app plus the IBM Docs add-on.

If you want to start playing with this, you can start a free 60 day trial of IBM Connections Social Cloud today!
