We have five messaging apps - five fucking sources of stress and I still receive messages on my phone. How about I ignore all of you while I do my actual job?

And the health checks, it's so dumb. You keep updating it every month but why can't you use the same link? Why do you have to generate a new one every time and then ask why people aren't submitting their crap? "Oh, well we send the updates in the group chat in this other messaging platform and people should just check that all the time." You have a project, man? Do you have a life? You want my JIRA issues?

This is stupid. So fucking dumb and easy to fix. It's like you just can't detach yourself from anything. Every time you decide to use one app or one form, kill the rest. Just kill them. Close your eyes and shoot them in the head.

    Everyone thinks their process is so easy... because they think of folks doing just their process...

    Is that for different projects? Just let the PM worry on putting values to update

    Notifications are true evil design though. App developers know we are gonna check them no matter what. It is for this reason I have hidden every notification including group chats and check mails only in the morning or before the evening. If something is important they will call me.

    @iamai Just one project but they require you to be online on some of them for tracking and shit. I don't follow most of it. It just annoyed me again today to find that someone's been messaging me in another completely different app they setup.

    @aviophile Same. I'm only really active in one app where I actually talk/work with the developers.

    @rutee07 it does sound difficult to track progress. Multiple email threads on same topic is confusing much more different apps.
