Hey @thongda thanks so much for this thread! Hello everyone! The tools I personally use are: * Pomodoro- Tracker. com to track how much time goes into which are of my work , so I can always optimize. A cool plus to this free app for me is that you can enroll into the Global stats and see how other people use their Pomodoro Tracker. I don't connect it to any other apps, as this is good enough for me as a standalone time-management tool. * Office Hero Planner to break down the specific tasks and schedule for the next day at the end of the previous working day, that way I can just leave the office without thinking of work, and come back the next thay to a whole agenda already planned. Less stress! Can't really connect it to anything, but have access through a QR code to a webpage that gives actionable tips on small steps that you can take to improve productivity. * GitLab for code management. I guess when choosing the git repository, one must address what their specific needs are. For me GitLab is the perfect choice thanks to features like time-tracking, built-in free CI and the fact that you can choose who gets access, and exporting is better IMO. * Google Docs & Google Drive for most of my file management. I've always used them so I guess the main reason is the fact that I'm used to their services, and the familiarity makes it super simple for me to create, share and manage documents. Also, it is quite simple to connect them and use with other tools, so that is a big convenience for me. * Luxafor Flag for outer interruption management and to receive visual notifications about important and urgent emails only. I use it to show my team (or random people when I'm out-of-the-office ,e.g. in coworking spaces or cafes) when I'm available or not. Red and Green are the basic colors I use, and I have a blinking blue queue of notification set up when I receive a really important email. Also have it set up for Discord, Slack, GitLab and  Google Docs via Zapier. * Zapier to just connect and automate what you couldn't otherwise. For example, I use Google Docs and Google Drive for most of my document management, and various Slack channels for team communication, and Zapier seems to be able to connect and create flows (zaps) for use-cases such as my Luxafor Flag lighting up when someone mentions me on Slack. This dramatically reduces my time spent uselessy browsing or reacting to each and one of notifications, when they actually don't involve me. Yellow flashes indicate a new commit in GitLab to projects of my choice. This is particularly important in team projects, so I don't miss out on changes.

I use Slack that is integrated with Google Drive which makes it very convenient when you receive timely notifications on comments in Docs and so on :)
