A list of our internal productivity tools:

Slack

The central hub for communication. This is used to communicate and receive updates from teams and multiple tools. It’s also our ‘go-to’ to establish if someone is available.

Google Apps

Our productivity suite covers email (Gmail), calendar, docs (Drive), and communication (Hangouts).

Productivity Tip: Type sheets.new or docs.new and hit Enter to directly open a new Google Sheet or Doc directly from chrome browser search.

Gmail email aliases using plus notation: Append a plus (“+”) sign and any combination of words or numbers after your email address. For example, if your name was yourusername@gmail.com, you could send mail to yourusername+1@gmail.com or yourusername+mailinglists@gmail.com.

This is used to manage, plan and update the Alt roadmap, weekly iteration Kanban and updates to be announced to users.
