The Soft Return, and Other Slack and Zoom Hacks You Need

These software shortcuts will make your workday more productive

If you're a desk worker, you’re likely two and a half years into WFH at least some of the time or most of the time. Your remote office setup is dialed in: You’ve got your preferred desk chair, your widescreen monitor, your janky little ring light for video calls. No way you’re slacking off; you’re firing off Slacks nonstop, and Zoomin’ like the meeting monster you are.
