View Full Version : Is the clipboard a capture tool for you?

I've written a review of ClipMate, an excellent tool that extends the Windows clipboard into another capture tool for my GTD workflow. The full review is on my Marc's Outlook blog.
Have any of you approached the clipboard as a capture tool? Do you use a clipboard manager program?
I'm including a poll here to get a sense of what tools forum members prefer.

I am a big ClipMate fan. I use it everyday as a data collection tool and for speeding up my access needs to data I have deemed to be important to me.

It sounds as though you're using ClipMate for long-term filing and access. What sort of information do you find yourself storing and organizing?

My "folders are":

Critical Message Links
Typically once a day I go thorugh my Inbox and move stuff that needs to go into the other folders or into Outlook. At least every three months I go through all the folders and make sure that stuff that is in there needs to stay or be moved to Outlook or my file system.

This is very much how I'm using ClipMate. The only difference is that I've added a ClipMate review to my weekly review to purge/move/categorize items.
Thnaks for sharing your folder hierarchy. I've kept mine a little simpler:
