Mr. Ed — The One Trick Pony

On January 3, 2016, in Growing Pains, by JohnR

not-a-one-trick-pony-tallThere is absolutely nothing wrong with being a “one-trick” pony, if the pony is Mr. Ed the talking horse. But what if Mr. Ed could also use an iPhone?

He could use the Marching Orders App to show Wilbur how he wants improvements made to the stable.

First task, he takes a picture of a tree needing pruning so he can walk under it for shade.

Next task, being Mr. Ed, he could dictate the details of his preferred grooming schedule.

And then, he could save a picture of the flat screen TV he wants into his Camera Roll to use in a task titled “Mr. Ed’s New Entertainment Center”!

Wilber would be in trouble. Mr. Ed is the boss.

If you are the boss and need to leave notes to people working for you, Marching Orders was designed to do one important thing well; make task lists with pictures to tell someone else what you want them to work on.

Take Some Pictures

There is no "right way" to do it but most will find the easiest first step to be taking pictures that illustrate what you want the recipient of your Marching Orders to focus on. The app will let you crop and scale any photo if needed.

Dictate Some Text

Use Speech to Text if your device supports it to make this a really fast process or type in what you like for titles and/or descriptions. Pictures will help to minimize how much you need to enter to give good instructions!

Print Marching Orders!

Send your file to any AirPrint printer or email it as an attachment. With Marching Orders, you can easily give your staff a great task list with a minimum of time and effort! Check out our Tips & Techniques posts for more info!
