And yet another tutorial video, part of our ongoing effort to create a bunch of learning materials for new users! This one is about getting a lot done, which means using Kerika for large scale projects.
And Kerika’s Views feature helps you stay on top of things no matter how many projects you have underway at any time.
Here’s a quick tutorial video on how to get the most out of Kerika’s Highlights and Views:
How Chat works in Kerika: a new tutorial video that shows how Kerika’s chat is the smarter alternative to email for distributed teams.
The latest in our series of updated tutorial videos for new users 🙂
Along with our recent (and ongoing) effort to update all the Kerika tutorial videos, we will be rolling out a new system of sending welcome emails to new users.
These emails will come once a day for the first 10 days or so (it depends upon how many tutorial videos we end up creating), and each email will include a link to a specific tutorial: e.g. how files are managed in Kerika, or how teams can be set up.
Our goal is to help new users learn about core features of Kerika as quickly as possible, over the first couple of weeks of their usage.
These emails are distinct from the notifications that might be generated through your normal usage of Kerika, such as (optionally) getting a task summary sent at 6AM.
A simple unsubscribe system is also being rolled out in conjunction with these emails: if a user doesn’t find these tutorials helpful, they can stop receiving them.
And another video in our revamped tutorial series: how you can manage your teams and privacy in Kerika.
We hope these tutorials are useful; let us know what you think.
OK, another tutorial video done: this time on how to use Kerika with Box.
Kerika works seamlessly with Box for secure storage of all your project files: just sign up as a Kerika user with your Box ID, and all your Kerika files will be stored in your own Box Account, where they will always be under your control.
This tutorial video shows you how.
Intended audience for this video: new Kerika users who want to leverage Box.
We are (finally!) getting around to updating the Kerika tutorial videos; what we have on our YouTube channel has definitely gotten stale.
Here’s the first in the new series:
This video is intended for new users: people who discover Kerika and sign up to start new accounts.
For people who sign up by clicking on an invitation email sent from a coworker, we have a different video that is more focused around their needs:
And, finally, for people who sign up to use Kerika with Google Apps — and this is the vast majority of Kerika users, worldwide — we have this video:
There’s a lot more coming.
We had previously been using SSL certificates for our website (kerika.com) and this blog (which is on a subdomain: blog.kerika.com) that we got from GoDaddy, but we have moved away from them.
What pushed us away was their aggressive approach to billing customers: they automatically renewed our SSL certificates after just 9 months into a 12-month contract, which we found unacceptable. Talking to their customer service people was an unhappy experience as well, so we decided to not do any more business with GoDaddy.
Now we are using a SSL from Amazon for our website and app (kerika.com): Amazon actually provides free SSL certificates to sites hosted on Amazon Web Services, and it was easy and simple to set up.
However, AWS doesn’t provide wildcard SSL certificates so we couldn’t handle our blog as well — particularly as our blog isn’t hosted at AWS. Instead we got a SSL certificate for the blog from RapidSSL which is reasonably priced.
So far, so good.
We have a new (five-minute) video that gives a fast overview of Kerika’s many capabilities:
