      Trello, Clickup, and Asana are some productivity tools that integrates with MS Teams. MS Planner is also another useful tool for organising and managing tasks.

            That's an interesting thought! Apple is committed to fostering a strong office culture, that embraces real-life collaboration. It also explains why Apple has been hesitant to offer remote working to everyone.ย 

            Whether remote teams can pull off an iPhone is debatable.

            But despite the present situation, remote teams have been working productively to develop and build almost everything from games to software. Perhaps one day, a fully remote company might create something revolutionary like the iPhone!ย 

            1. 1

              Yeah, that's a very interesting thought!

              I am doing a lot of customer interviews at the moment for my startup and whilst a lot of people are excited about remote work because of the flexibility it gives - they admit that their firms have not figured it out yet and there are a lot of issues there.

              I guess the best way to iron out those problems is by doing and maybe one day it will become as effective as in-person collaboration is!

            1. 1

              If companies want to stay competitive, they must offer flexible work options. Similarly, I came across a report which said nearly 40% of workers would leave their company if not given the option of working remotely. Essentially, remote working is not seen as a perk anymore, but rather as the preferred method of working.ย 

              On a side note, it looks like you forgot to include the link to your article. Would be great if you can share the link :)

                Thank you so much for your comment and yes it seems the link wasn't included

                Great news! I have always thought that having some of Notion's features, especially the Slash command on Google Docs, would be really helpful for heavy Docs users like me.

                This is a very smart move by Google and would give a stiff competition to Notion & Coda.

                1. 1

                  This is good news. But unfortunate to hear that 50% of the employees would like to come to the offices.

                  It is very likely that this is due to employees working at home during a pandemic and would need a change of environment.

                  1. 1

                    Looks great, thanks for the link. I'll give it a goย 

                    1. 2

                      Thanks for sharing this helpful resource :)

                      It had all the travel and visa information that I was looking for. I would love to work from one of the Caribbean islands, if I had to choose.ย 

                      1. 2

                        I am glad that you found it useful stellarusso! The Caribbean islands seem like the perfect place to work for a year.ย 

                        The best option it seems would be Anguilla.

                      1. 2

                        That's fantastic! Thanks for sharing this news.

                        1. 5

                          As Discord's entire product is geared towards offering a great audio experience, I think their users will benefit a lot from this. Eager to see how this plays out

                          ย 

                          1. 4

                            And since they have the lead on audio, I think they'll lead this new market as well in a couple of years. But CH will still be at the top. They have the badge for being the first to create an audio-only social network, and there seems to be place for everyone in this newly emerged market.

                            1. 2

                              Definitely excited for Clubhouse as well. Can't wait to see it on Android.ย 

                            2. 2

                              Agree. I think Discord already had set a foot for audio experiences (actually most of my experiences with Discord have been audio only for a while). I'm not then how the new clubhouse like feature will play out.ย 

                            1. 4

                              It's an interesting strategy, but I think it will affect the platform's experience. If I have to pay to get the most recent content or be updated for sure, I will find another free option. Yeah, you can produce high-value content and look for monetization; for that, we have medium or custom platforms selling courses or memberships to communities, and it's okay.

                              But, if I will have to pay to get noticed or see "the most special tweet" with "premium information." Thanks, but no thanks.

                              1. 3

                                Good point, Samuel. I feel that Twitter's feed will remain the same. For content creators to reach more audiences, they'll need to share the tweets in public. It would work the same way how writers use a free newsletter to grow their audience and a paid one to monetize their content.ย 

                              1. 4

                                Congrats, Cecilia ๐ŸŽ‰

                                  Delighted to read your story, Lorraine! I saw that you have written about missing your colleagues. When working remotely, how do you cope with the lack of face-to-face interactions?ย 

                                  1. 1

                                    Thanks, Stella! Our company/team have started doing more bonding activities - recently my team took a fun Buzzfeed quiz together and then talked about our results, and in a larger team meeting we did Kahoot with fun facts about one another. Other teams have done trivia or yoga. We even got to do a virtual Escape the Room for our virtual offsite last year. Hope these ideas inspire you!

                                    Hello everyone,ย 

                                    My name is Manel, I have been working remotely/freelancing since 2012. I love my lifestyle and I am looking for the right community that will help me to assess my skills and develop them in the long term. I would be more than happy to assist others with what I can/know.ย 

                                    (I support the idea - I don't know the speaker ๐Ÿ˜…)

                                    I support the idea - I don't know the speaker

                                      Great to have a freelancer of your experience! Welcome to the clan, Manel!

                                        Wow! Great news! Excited to learn more about this new initiative

                                      1. 1

                                        Incredible stuff, everyone!

                                        1. 4

                                          It's been an incredible year for remote work and thanks for this informative recap. Here's to more such great news in 2021 ๐ŸŽŠ

                                          1. 2

                                            Both modes have their pros and cons.

                                            I believe it depends on how experienced the person is. Freelancers who are just starting out can base their fees on the hourly rate, as clients would be unlikely to take a huge risk by charging by the project.

                                            Eventually, after gaining experience and becoming more structured, you will have bigger clients who don't care how much time you put in, but instead on the value you deliver.
