Creately for Diagramming

In IT world, day-to-day activities, we have to work with projects and provide some wireframes, flowcharts and other graphical diagrams to internal (seniors) and external clients. There are a lot of tools available to create all these diagrams.

Few days back, from one of my senior I come to know about Creately, an online fast tool to create wireframes, flowcharts, graphical diagrams etc. You can draw almost everything using Creately. It’s really user friendly. You will create your diagram; do changes; save it there. You can export it in form of Image, PDF or SVG file.

You can start using it with Google account from here: https://creately.com/openid/google/login

Or directly from their website: https://creately.com

I love it the way it works.

You can use Free or Paid account. In case you are using free account you have to share your diagrams publicly. That’s the only and the biggest disadvantage they are having.


Thanks!!!!!!!! Enjoy Programming J

Undoubtedly, Gmail has become a very important part of each and everyday's life. Through Google Apps, they have given freedom to use Gmail for business purpose as well. Google Apps is having feature to feel like you are sending emails through your own servers, instead of Google server. You can use email id's like abc@domainname.com, xyz@domainname.com etc.. and on backend emails are sent through Gmail. Let's see how we can handle this whole thing :

1. To set up an external email, first of all, you should have domain name and it's control panel.

2. Go to link : http://www.google.com/enterprise/apps/business/ and setup your Google Apps account.

3. Login to your control panel and navigate to Mail Manager. Point DNS Server’s MX records to Google Apps. Add following MX entries :

ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM with priority 1
ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM with priority 5
ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM with priority 5
ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM with priority 10
ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM with priority 10


Save them

and will look like this : 



Note : TTL should not more than 3600 seconds for Google records. 

and we are done with set up!!!!
