What are the best WFH tools in your opinion? Do you use any?

Many of us were not accustomed to the remote working environment. But since the pandemic we were forced to explore the WFH culture. Personally, I found it really difficult to communicate efficiently with my collogues, but then I started using the Google tool kits and it helped me a lot. So, what are the best WFH tools in your opinion? Do you use any?

I happen to work for one! Rock was purpose built to help remote teams communicate and collaborate better. Asynchronous by default and synchronous when needed we aim to reduce the number of notifications and direct communication needed to work together (think continuous messages or back-to-back videoconferencing meetings). Instead, people should be able to have flexibility and stay productive through other means of communication as well. By incorporating tasks, notes and messaging on one platform it saves you a lot of time that would else be spent switching tools and setting up/updating different workflows. Besides that, in a lot of tools it's also surprisingly difficult to work together with people outside your organization (think freelancers, partners, clients...) we tried to tackle this by making the workspace open to anyone, so you can directly work together with whoever :) A connection to G-Drive also allows you to connect your Google documents and have enough storage for anything, we also have a Zoom integration, so you can directly start a meeting in any workspace without the hassle of having to look for links! Leaving you a link in case you want to check it out, it's totally free to sign up! https://rock.so/product Hope this helps and in case you checked it out I'd love to hear your take on it!

I've used Google Docs and Google Sheets pre-WFH, but I've been using them differently since WFH - as remote whiteboarding and collaboration tools, not just as document and spreadsheet. I've also started using Notion as a productivity system for personal projects. Other tools that I am using are pretty standard - zoom, slack, loom, etc.
