‘Historically what might have taken a couple of days to iron out is now generally something we can jump on within 30 minutes with Slack. That’s helped a lot with the openness and transparency around what issues are present and where people might need help.’

Jagdeep Das11:00Okay, the beta version is ready! Should work for everyone on the staging site.
Matt Brewer11:05This is great. Do you mind if I share with #team-execs? They should have all the background that they need after our briefing last week.
Zoe Maxwell11:06I think that’s a good idea! The sooner we get feedback, the sooner we can begin testing on the site.
Matt Brewer11:07I'll report back.
Arcadio Buendía11:36In the meantime, @Zoe Maxwell and I have been working on refreshing the ‘Thank you’ page with some signature A1 style. Anyone want to brainstorm a funny headline?

Arcadio Buendía12:45 We have a winner: how does ‘Order confirmed. Beep boop.’ sound to everyone?

Arcadio Buendía08:45Hello! I bring good news! I think I figured out the user flow that we were trying to solve last week.
Zoe Maxwell08:50My word! That is good news. Care to share?
Arcadio Buendía09:00It’s something like this. I’ll share this in channel if you think it’s okay:

Zoe Maxwell09:04Brilliant! A work of art! Five stars! But seriously, this makes sense. Share that in channel.
Arcadio Buendía09:06Thank you, thank you! I’d like to thank my agent, and my parents.
Zoe Maxwell09:25Hey, if you’re free, can you call into this Zoom? We’re talking about the ideas that you had. 55-55-55 (yes, that’s really the number).
Zoe Maxwell09:55Let me know if you want to talk strategy for our internal review today.
Arcadio Buendía10:00That’s a good decision. I could outline some background information and you could go through the designs? Or vice versa?
Zoe Maxwell10:02I think you’re more familiar with the designs, so how about the second option? Sound good?
Arcadio Buendía10:10Yep. Also, did you see this note? Any idea of what you’re doing for your slide?
Elena Nowak
Hey, everyone! For our team offsite next week, I have a new idea. How about if everyone on the team prepares a short presentation – just one slide – about where they see the team going in the next year.

Harry Boone09:00Hey, you two. I have some late-breaking feedback that I’d like to share with the team, but it’s a little sensitive.
Zoe Maxwell09:02How can we help?
Harry Boone09:05I just showed some of our pages to an outside counsel and we’d like to be a little more conservative when talking about upcoming products.
Sara Parras09:06Ah, okay. Should we take a second look at the roadmap section of the site?
Harry Boone09:10Yes, that’s the primary area of concern. Here are a few specific things to watch out for:

Legal notes – Roadmap

Zoe Maxwell09:14This is great, thank you. Is it okay if I share this feedback directly with a designer?
Sara Parras09:15I’ll have one of our engineers stand by for layout changes.
Harry Boone09:16This is great, thanks for the speedy work on this.
Zoe Maxwell09:30I’ve got someone working on this later today – will share their work here as soon as it’s ready.
Harry Boone09:30Sounds good, I’ll be standing by.
Sara Parras09:32Another Slack conversation that saves us an email chain and a meeting. Let’s do this again sometime!
