I usually avoid pinging people and rather prefer to send an email unless something needs attention urgently say within 15 mins. Feedback I received says, I need to be more informal and leverage chat and other means more often. Email comm makes it a formal comm 🤔. Personally I find it annoying when someone ping me with a question which I could have answered by day end when I am not fighting a fire. Anyone else prefer emails over pings for non urgent things? Or am I doing it wrong?
