Looking for a better way to plan remote meetings across time zones, and keep up with events. What software is doing that best today?
We have 15k newsletter subscribers, and have around ~2k of them in a Slack group. We're starting to encounter issues in terms of community management - specifically, it's hard to pin content like c...
Google lets you subscribe to a calendar using a URL - although when using an Outlook 365 Calendar link, events are copied over once, and then the syncing stops. This seems to be a relatively new is...
And of course Mercury for all things banking :)
Curious - do you set it and forget it, or are you regularly evaluating competitive options to your existing stack?
We moved from Sketch to Figma and from Asana to Linear.
We don't have an active schedule but are often trying to optimize what tools we use.
Looking at your jobs board it looks like you have some of your team in San Francisco and some remote. With Slack as your main communication channel, how do you manage asynchronous communication across different time zones? We're working to figure that out at Clutch right now and would love your insight.
We only have remotes in the US at the moment. So the 3 hour timezone hasn't been a big deal. Most of the conversation in Slack dies down around 4pm PT so people have time to focus.
Apart from direct DMs and @'d there isn't an expectation that you stay on top of channels and asynchronously responses are fine if people are busy.
In general we mostly leave things to develop organically rather than add too many processes.
Also interested. Have y'all explored other tools outside of Slack? We're building pingpong for async communication. Would love to hear your thoughts. usepingpong.com
Actually - ignore this question here, going to post as main question :).
Just recently switched the whole company to Notion which has been killer for us. Couldn’t imagine working without it. Slack however has killed my productivity... need to figure out the best way to manage that... any tips?

@preshdkumar If Slack overload has become an issue, you can try using Lowdown - they offer a newsletter that takes the most engaged information from all of your workspaces and throws them all into a weekly newsletter.
That looks really cool—do you use it, and has the signal/noise ratio been pretty good for you?
With VSCode, anything specific that got your team to chose that over Sublime Text or any other code editor?
I believe it has good Typescript support.
We don't dictate that you have to use VSCode so some engineers use other IDEs
