EY on friday: from now on, Skype will no longer log in automatically. Use teams. Monday: partner does a f/u meeting on Skype.
Anyone else have someone in their life / work or personal/ who continually brags about “knowing how to set up a zoom meeting”? It’s month three of the pandemic. We all know how to set up a zoom meeting Karen.
Desi 🐟 who went the arranged marriage route - how did you vibe with someone without meeting in person? Talking to this girl over the phone/Skype but struggling to relate/connect with her. Any tips/recos ?
I am SO tired of hearing “you’re on mute”. How have people not figured out how to effectively use zoom/teams/etc yet. 🤦♀️😭
If your team is working from home, do you check their Skype and ping them every now and then to make sure they are not leaving their desk? I don’t like it when people are not immediately available.
I really want to try for baby no. 2 soon but now if I would start it would put me in my busiest month of January when the baby would be due. I already went down in hours this past year because of the pandemic and my Team had to pick up the slack. I also was told yesterday that the team struggled when I went down in hours. I really want to start trying because I want my kids closer in age. My daughter turns 2 in July so I would like to start soon so they are 2.5-3 years apart. I don’t know
Any recommendations for affordable zoom camera?
What are y’all thoughts on using Slack for team collaboration? Is it just me or is the platform over complicated and clunky?

Seeing some people just roll out the bed and show up on zoom meetings. I think this will come in handy to remind them to shower and change, ‘hopefully’? 🤦🏻♀️😂
Do y’all think Zoom is here to stay? Feel like Microsoft would be able to take them on using Teams video chat function (since most companies have office and teams already). What’s their competitive edge?
How do you remove a message you sent on Skype? I thought it was right click remove message but I don’t see that option when I right click
How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.
Trying to get to new WiFi and I live in a remote location in upstate NY. Any recommendations on what I need mbps wise in order to work from home efficiently? I do not want my zoom or teams video calls to lag and I download large files daily. Thanks!
When you accidentally turn on your Skype video while shirtless during a team meeting and it takes you a minute to realize it....🙄😖
Anyone else having problems maintaining sanity while having their kids fighting with each other in the background of Zoom calls for work? 😑
PSA: make sure you change your smoke detector batteries at home so that people on zoom don’t have to listen to it for an hour
Hi ladies! I have a Skype interview next week and I don't interview well on Skype. Suggestions about what to wear, any other tricks that might work in my favor? Thank you!

Anyone know of someone who became a JAG or OCG after big law? I wouldn’t mind the pay cut given their hours and benefits, but don’t know what those paths would look after the mandatory service.
