@Erica Moss This is everything. 

Pretty sure @Erica Moss is my spirit guide :D

With most of you on the West Coast, and others on the East Coast, what's your favorite communication practices for collaborating realtime?

Erica Moss Community Manager Oct 11, 2018

@Carol Jones Great question! Chat definitely becomes our watercooler, and we try to observe remote team best practices — a big one for us is if one person has to be on a video call, we all hop on a video call (versus one person on camera, and the rest in a conference room). If you're looking for other tips, we often reference the Trello blog, as they create a lot of great content around this topic. 😄
