The Todoist App on IOS with Voiceover
Let’s get started with chats about organization.

and we then start chatting about how Google drive notifications work.
0:50, We now have folders for DM35, well DM33 threw DM50 with a talking points google doc in each folder.
Ready for us to share our ideas of what we want to talk about.
1:41, Michael thought he could copy and paste, turns out he couldn’t. Here’s how he ended up getting around that, and adding the Google docs to each of the aforementioned folders.
1:50, and then he explains to you how to access team folders from the drive.google.com site.
2:20, so now we have talking point documents through episode 50, if anyone else wants to take a stab at going through the process of creating new talking points document for additional episodes, feel free to reach out. Or, I’d love to hear some of you’r automation tips, the one Damashe mentioned might be worth looking into as well.

Navigation of the Todoist app on IOS with Voiceover
5:45, as you’ll hear, if you run into this problem it’s possible the only way you’ll be able to get past it is to force close the app from the app switcher.
NOTE: this doesn’t always happen, sometimes when using The todoist app on ios with Voiceover, voiceover will jump to the premium feature notification, however there are other times it doesn’t.

Fix Desktop, maybe?
9:00, Listen to one desktop thing that could be improved.
9:38, one of the tips Michael recommends when using the keystrokes referenced in the documentation available under the resources heading for this article is that you proceed the keystroke with a scape.
