So many options…
- Store in Google docs, except that when you really need to access it, there’s no internet!
- Store in Electronic Document Management system, except that when you really need to access it, the remote desktop session doesn’t let you log in!
- Store in a word doc on laptop, except that when you really need to access it, you’re using another pc!
Revert to no.1, go round and round!
Or, decide which system is going to give your organisation the most benefits for the task in hand. For example; it’s ok to use Google docs if your notes are just for you, you don’t need them to be filed in a specific place for other to access. Generally when you need access to them there is an internet connection and you can also access them on your mobile.
On the other hand, if your organisation uses a specific purchase order template and wishes to be able to search for order by date, approver or supplier etc., it makes sense to file the purchase order away in a prescribed manner within a document management system.
