Episode Notes

Want to automate your documents? Step one is not shopping for software. Barron Henley talks about how to get started — without purchasing a thing. Before that, we say goodbye to two Dropbox services we loved.

Aaron was a big fan of Mailbox, the cutting-edge email app that Dropbox bought in 2013 and basically neglected ever since. Sam was a big fan of Carousel, Dropbox’s photo app that finally made it easy for him to share a common repository for family photos. Well, a week ago Dropbox canned both of them.

(FYI, Aaron and Sam are both test-driving Google Inbox app for email, and Sam is sticking with Dropbox for family photos, but he’s hoping some of the Carousel features make it into Dropbox proper.)

Document automation may not sound like the sexiest topic, but if you have ever accidentally saved over one of your templates, you will be riveted to your headphones while Barron Henley talks about what really goes into document automation (hint: it isn’t necessarily new software) and how to get started.
