Adding Power to Google Account

on October 27, 2017 No comments


If you are like us and you have a busy office, sometimes any little thing we can do to make our systems integrate with each other work for us is a welcome upgrade. It will also be a blessing for some of our current customers. If you are already using DocuSign, Trello, and Quickbooks, it’s a nice shortcut to make a day’s workload a little lighter.  The Quickbooks add on puts a View invoice box attached to a group of all the invoices gmails you recently sent out. Keeping everything in one place. Try it out, see if you like it.

From Google Tech news:

Google is launching third-party add-ons for Gmail today. These native extensions will allow you to bring the power of services like Asana, DocuSign, Trello, Wrike and others directly to your inbox — no matter whether you are an enterprise or individual user.

If you’ve been following along, this announcement doesn’t come as a total surprise. The company first announced at its I/O developer conference in March that this feature was coming. At the time, though, this was only a developer preview; since then, Google has worked with a number of partners to bring a first set of native extensions to Gmail.

This first set of partners includes Asana, Dialpad, DocuSign (coming soon), Hire (by Google), Intuit QuickBooks, ProsperWorks, RingCentral, Smartsheet, Streak, Trello and Wrike. Unsurprisingly, the focus here is on productivity services that, for the most part, already include some connection to email. The add-ons live in the right sidepane of Gmail (though sadly they are not available in Inbox by Gmail, Google’s other email client).

Asana co-founder Justin Rosenstein told me that this will allow his customers to more easily bring tasks from external emails to the work-tracking service. It also will allow Asana users to see more details about tasks that appear in emails they receive directly from Asana or from other users.

The same is true for most of the other integrations, whether that’s the Trello add-on allowing you to turn emails into actionable tasks or the RingCentral add-on allowing you to make outbound calls and view and send SMS messages from your inbox.

What’s nice is that these add-ons also work in the mobile Gmail app on Android. As for iOS support, a Google spokesperson tells me the company is “working with Apple to bring Gmail Add-ons to iOS users.” It’s unclear when exactly this will happen, though.

As somebody who heavily relies on Trello’s Chrome-based plugin for Gmail to stay semi-sane, the idea of a native integration with Gmail definitely sounds like it’ll make life easier — especially because of this mobile integration.

You can now install these integrations from the G Suite Marketplace; if you are a developer, you can also start creating add-ons for your own organization. These Gmail add-ons join similar tools for Google Docs and Sheets that are already available in the Marketplace.”

What Is Your Favorite Version of Windows?

on August 16, 2017 No comments

What Is Your Favorite Version of Windows? I know, that’s a loaded question. For most of the PC users Windows has historically had so very many quirks and bugs, it can be difficult to say that Windows itself has any favorites. But let’s face it. If you use a PC and not a Mac, then you are used to Windows and all of it’s quirks. Today, if you were to purchase a new PC the default operating system is Windows 10. If you have a touch screen, then windows 10 isn’t so bad. If you don’t have a touch screen, then you will probably end up using the Windows 7 interface of Windows 10.

Spyware and Other Malicious Methods of Attack on Your Computer

on June 3, 2017 No comments

spyware removal, it solutions for companies, help deskvero beach computer expertsAs a company who’s main product the installation and maintenance of computer networks for businesses, we are acutely aware of the kind of problems caused by software.  Especially FREE Software!

When a client calls us with the complaint that a certain computer in their network is acting funny, we can pretty much guarantee that the user has downloaded something. By now we have encountered this situation often enough so that we know the symptoms. Resolving and removing Spyware and Malware can be time-consuming, but often we have a successful outcome and are able to get our clients back up and running.

My team here at Unified Techs warns our clients to be very careful of opening emails which are not from someone you know and giving up private information over the web. But we will always have one or two people who forget, and they end up creating a situation which can affect all of the computers on their network and can sometimes even infect the computers belonging to their clients.

Most recently we noticed an uptick in  SPYWARE, in particular, we saw a rash of fake anti-virus programs. These are malicious programs which get installed on your PC and pretend to be legitimate programs trying to remove a virus for you; all you need to do is enter a credit card number to buy a subscription. Never enter your card info… at

First of all, PLEASE do not download any FREE programs which promise to optimize your PC performance, and protect your system. They are designed to do just the opposite. These programs are called Spyware, and while some are simply a nuisance, others will take over your computer and demand ransom money. They will bury malicious code in the dark corners of your system and it can be almost impossible to remove them.

Second, never enter your card info… at best you will be charged the subscription fee and a virus installed on your system. Which you will then have to call us to remove.

The absolute worst case is these hackers will go on a shopping spree with your credit card info.

If you are not certain who these Spyware companies are, here are some of the more common names:

– Win Antivirus Pro

– Antivirus Pro 2009

– Micro Antivirus

– WinAntiSpyware

– Antispyware Pro XP

– AntiVirus 360

– AntiVirus Lab 2009

Unfortunately, these programs will not easily uninstall and require some advanced tools and registry editing to remove.  DO NOT attempt to remove them yourself!

Unless you are very familiar with editing the guts of your Operating System (OS) you will likely cause more harm than good trying to remove them. Your best defense is continual awareness, not opening unknown applications or downloading from unsafe websites, especially ones that give away free music, movies, games, or other computer programs you would normally pay for.

Windows 10 Tiles, or Start Screen?

on April 4, 2017 No comments


manage IT company, IT management, computer installations, computer repairs, network installations,

Windows 10 is an operating system that aims to  mimic operating systems we use on our tablets and smart phones. While it takes some getting used to, as all new software does, on a touch screen computer, it’s easy to manage. You have the same swipe ability that many of us have become used to on our tablets and smart phones. On systems without a touch screen it can be more cumbersome to sift through. We have users who really became upset when the Windows 10  Operating system was first uploaded. They literally could not find anything on their laptop or desktop.
