Yesterday, a coworker who deals with a lot of event management type work asked me for some advice. He was looking to automate the setup of reminders and logistic for events. I mentioned using Shortcuts on his iPhone to automate the process. He had tinkered with Shortcuts before, but just a little. I showed him how to branch (if/then), variables and “date math”. He said he’d give it a look last night. Just saw him at the watercooler, and he’s got a full system in place now.

I really enjoy teaching people how to make technology suit their needs.
