Tool tips is a regular series where Hightail employees share their life’s most essential apps, online services and websites. Next up is HR/Staffing Specialist, Lindsey Robinson.

HR is a special department where we save every document of information. It is usually daunting to keep track of all the reports, job offers and forms that we depend on, but Hightail’s Desktop app is our silent hero. It allows us to save everything virtually while granting access to the whole department (all three of us), which helps us stay green and efficient. Anytime we need to look back at an old offer or report, we effortlessly peek into our shared folders instead of frantically searching through cabinets full of loose papers.

Playtime
Pinterest is the holy grail of everything. It helps me organize projects and events and is also there for me when I am bored out of my skull. Anytime I have to plan a work event, find out a friend is getting married or want to make house upgrades, I bust out Pinterest to get the ideas flowing. I love that you can collect your ideas on boards to keep your projects separate and make comments…very similar to our amazing new beta product, Hightail Spaces.

General resource
I love following the Humans of New York blog by Brandon Stanton. The stories he gets people to share are often nothing you would expect and it’s a great reminder that everyone has some kind of battle or struggle and to just always be friendly, kind and understanding. To get real world news, I recently started reading theSkimm. I usually don’t have time to catch up on world events so this daily newsletter is a quick update on what’s happening outside of work.
