Even though you’re not physically in the office, it doesn’t have to be difficult to be productive working from home. Here is a list of 5 tools to become productive when working from home.
1. Notion – I‘ve been using Notion for the past three months to organize my projects, tasks, goals, budget, and more all in one place. While it is a learning curve, once I started getting my hands dirty in Notion, I never looked back.
2. Slack – If you work with a group of people then Slack is the perfect tool for all your communication needs. Basically, it is an organized instant messaging tool for teams that need to work collectively on projects in real-time. It’s a great way to keep your team accountable, especially during this time of uncertainty. Also with Slack, you can create channels for different topics and is an easy alternative to email. It also has video calling capability, making it easier for your team to communicate online for meetings.
3. Google Drive – If you’re new to remote working, there is a chance your company hasn’t yet transferred to paperless. Google Drive is a cloud-based file management tool that allows you and your team to access and create files online. Google Drive allows your team to create documents, spreadsheets, forms, presentations, and more. It’s simple to use and a change that will greatly benefit your team’s efficiency, while saving all of that paper in the long run.
4. Zoom – With Zoom Video Conferencing, you can talk about tasks that need more explanation, furthermore, you can do screen shares to show the person sitting on the other end how to do something. You can set up invitation-only meetings, so only those will be able to access the video conference, who had been invited. This means that you won’t be interrupted by a random call. You can also host webinars too.
5. LastPass – LastPass provides a modern miracle for users who are sick and tired of constantly struggling to remember passwords. LastPass can be used across several devices, storing various passwords in your vault and auditing your passwords in order to help you create better, more secure passwords.
Those were my top five tools that I use on a daily and weekly basis. What tools do you use? Please let me know in the comments below.
