Hey Martina! Slack, Notion, and Asana are for sure the to-go ones. Recently I have been using Macro which makes my Zoom meetings more colorful and fun :)
Martina Hackbartt
@5harath Hi, Sharath! Such a good combo, I use all those 3 as well. Haven't tried Macro but definitely will. Thank you for sharing!

Hi. I really love to use weje.io for my personal to-dos and working tasks. It allows to manage information in easy way. Also it allows organizing every details on your personal way. If you're a visual person like me, it would be a big plus.
Martina Hackbartt
@vmigova Hi, Valeria! I've never heard of weje.io, I'm quite a visual person and usually use notion for to-dos and working tasks. I will try it out and let you know! Thank you for sharing :)

I'm constantly using Slack and ClickUp for quick communication and project managing. Since our team consists of remote and hybrid working, we use our own video tool to make group video gifts to recognize and celebrate our employees: https://www.vidday.com/video-mak... It always feels good to surprise and delight a team member!

I wouldn't normally have an iPad in an office, but because I work from home I sometimes like to draw things out and airdrop it to my computer. It can really speed up communicating an idea when I have a sketch. Alternatively, I have been enjoying FigJam by Figma

@product_at_producthunt -- I find myself using the sidecar feature on Mac+iPad only coz I'm home. Especially helpful when I'm presenting a deck to lookup/write notes.

@product_at_producthunt Hi Michael! FigJam seems like a very good tool to quickly connect ideas. Thank you very much for sharing! I'll try it out soon

Early 0-to-1 stage startup, 100% remote (will remain so), 3 people -- so Zoom, Google Docs/Sheets, WhatsApp. Our product is kinda designed for new normal: we believe the future of work is going to be heavily individual-centric, as opposed to it being company-centric. And so, Yuga is an employee engagement SaaS where employees plan their long-term career using LinkedIn for login (vs enterprise) and managers work alongside on Yuga to see how the company fits in, for proactive retention. There's also a module for mentor engagement and a Brag/Work journal to track those wins you'd normally lose track of usually. We're at yugahq.com.

Hey, Martina! I work remotely as a copywriter for an e-commerce brand. Our daily drivers are Slack and Asana (switched from Trello). Couldn't live without those for sure! And, well, email, haha. It's funny you made this discussion today, though, since I've just launched Setup Scout. It can help you build your remote workspace, which can greatly improve your productivity and even health!
Martina Hackbartt
@st__matt Hi, Mantas! It's good to know you just launched, congrats! I'll give Setup Scout a try :) Also,, I find Asana and Slack very useful as well

Hi Martina, Hope you are having a good week too :) Here is my list of tools used for remote work on a daily basis: - I check my email and then assignments in the ticketing tool (we use our tool UseResponse -https://www.producthunt.com/post...) - For online meetings we use Whereby and Zoom - For instant team communications we use Telegram - Teamviewer for screensharing - Plus shared documents in Google Docs/Sheets
Dan Frankowski
Slack, Zoom, Gmail. The usual. :) And, Condorsay. Since you kindly asked, our tool Condorsay (https://www.producthunt.com/post...) is aimed at helping a team frame and make decisions asynchronously and independently. (They come together at the end, once they've evaluated the options.) So we consider Condorsay to be very supportive of remote work. We posted on product hunt today. Take a look if you feel moved.
Martina Hackbartt
@dfrankow Hi, Dan! I'm looking forward to try Condorsay out with my team; seems like a veeery useful tool. Congrats on the launch!

Recently I made a free work management platform for small and remote teams called TaskPoint. The overall reception from my cohort at uni has been great so far. What is great about it is that features like messages and files are pretty much unlimited. Check it out if you're interested at https://www.producthunt.com/post...

If you want a platform that's a little more fun than Zoom for virtual connections, we've been using Topia (https://topia.io/), which is a solidly better way to connect for a meeting.
Brian Swichkow
@alexshebar we've loved the energy you've brought into https://topia.io/producthunt and are excited for the next hybrid event! It's a virtual clubhouse made to be magical by the PH community.

And if you want to switch to a new company, I do recommend my website https://remotefront.io for everyone. It saves you hours of job hunting and sends you related jobs to you 2 times a week so you can enjoy your free time learning new stuff. You would be applying to jobs that are directly sent via email.
Martina Hackbartt
@sandeep_acharya Hi Sandeep! Sounds like a great idea! I'll definitely keep your website handy for the future
Sandeep Acharya
@martina_hackbartt You would be amazed to know that remotefront.io is able to curate and post 3321 remote jobs in last 45 days. There are so many remote openings everyday.

We building conversational client onboarding platform and use Slack, Notion and Zoom. Out of those 3 the most valuable for us is Notion by far.
Martina Hackbartt
@dmitry_chourpo1 I absolutely love notion as well! I don't use it with my team but most of my work and study I organize it there
