Thanks, @Marie, for all those great resources (and for the mention), and thanks to the author @Julia_Martins for including all of us.

For anyone new to this, I’m happy to offer more tips, like not setting up camp in arm’s reach of the refrigerator!

Stay safe,

Larry

Thanks for posting this! I’ve worked from home for the past 3 years now, but others within my company hasn’t.

It can definitely have it’s challenges with keeping the team productive, especially when they haven’t done it before. Now it’s becoming mandatory for all of us to work from home.

I spent the past week updating my templates and helping others get setup in Asana. I’ve created videos showing teams how to navigate and create their own projects.

This is affecting to many people, I’m just trying to do my part and help out where I can.
