Working from home, in sweatpants, without worrying about being late for a meeting, sounds like a dream come true! But what about team collaboration? How can we unite and work together when we are not in the same office?
Don’t worry, we’re not suggesting you send funny gifs to your coworkers all day long (although, that could be a great idea), we have some better options for you! Here are some remote team collaboration tools that will make your work easier and your team stronger:
Do you remember that feeling of satisfaction when you crossed out a task from your to-do list? Imagine that, but online and with your team members. Trello is a great tool to keep track of your project progress and assign tasks to team members. Plus, you can customize it with funny stickers and emojis to keep the mood light.
Slack is like the virtual water cooler. You can chat with your team members, create channels for specific projects, and even integrate it with other tools, like Trello or Google Drive. You can also use emojis and gifs to express your emotions and make your messages more fun!
Do you miss those face-to-face meetings? Zoom is the solution! You can have video conferences with your team members, share your screen, and even use the virtual background feature to make your coworkers laugh (or wonder if you’re secretly on a beach somewhere).
4. Google Drive
Google Drive is the perfect tool for collaborating on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. You can work on the same file at the same time, leave comments, and track changes. Plus, you can use Google Meet to have video meetings with your team members directly from Drive!
Donut is a Slack extension that randomly pairs team members for virtual coffee breaks. It’s a great way to get to know your coworkers better and have some fun conversations that are not work-related. Who knows, you might discover that you have a coworker who’s also a Harry Potter fan!
These are just a few examples of remote team collaboration tools that can make your work easier and your team stronger. Remember, even if you’re not physically in the same office, you can still bond with your coworkers and have fun together!
