Alfonso Huertas11:00 AMOkay the beta version is ready! Should work for everyone on the staging site.
Marcos López11:05 AMThis is great. Do you mind if I share with #team-execs? They should have all the background they need after our briefing last week.
Ximena Dávila11:06 AMI think that’s a good idea! The faster we get feedback the faster we can start testing on the site.
Marcos López11:07 AMI'll report back.
Arturo García11:36 AMIn the meantime, @Ximena Dávila and I have been working on refreshing the Thank You page with some signature Acme goodness. Anyone want to brainstorm a funny headline?

Arturo García8:45 AMHowdy! I bring good news! I think I figured out the user flow we were trying to solve last week.
Ximena Dávila8:50 AMMy word! That is good news. Care to share?
Arturo García9:00 AMIt’s something like this. I’ll share this in channel if you think it’s okay:

Ximena Dávila9:04 AMBrilliant! A work of art! Five stars! But seriously, this makes sense. Share that in channel.
Arturo García9:06 AMThank you, thank you! I’d like to thank my agent, and my parents.
Ximena Dávila9:25 AMHey if you’re free can you call into this Zoom? We’re talking about the ideas you had. 55-55-55 (yes, that’s really the number).
Ximena Dávila9:55 AMLet me know if you want to talk strategy for our internal review today.
Arturo García10:00 AMThat’s a good call. I can set up some background and you can walk through the designs? Vice versa?
Ximena Dávila10:02 AMI think you’re more familiar with the designs so how about the second option. Sound good?
Arturo García10:10 AMYep. Also, did you see this note? Any idea of what you’re doing for your slide?
Lisa Zhang
Hey, everyone! For our team offsite next week, I have a new idea. How about everyone on the team prepare a short presentation — just one slide — about where you see the team going in the next year.

Matías Avilés9:00 AMHey, you two. Have some late breaking feedback I’d like to share with the team but it’s a little sensitive.
Ximena Dávila9:02 AMHow can we help?
Matías Avilés9:05 AMI 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.
Catalina Álvarez9:06 AMAh — okay. Should we take a second look at the roadmap section of the site?
Matías Avilés9:10 AMYes, that’s the primary area of concern. Here are a few specific things to watch out for:

Ximena Dávila9:14 AMThis is great, thank you. Is it okay if I share this feedback directly with a designer?

Matías Avilés9:16 AMThis is great, thanks for the speedy work on this.
Ximena Dávila9:30 AMI’ve got someone working on this later today — will share their work here as soon as its done.
