I was assigned the research of an issue, after doing that I told in a meeting what we needed to solve, then someone asked which engineer would take care of that so I said me and they didn't listen. Then they asked again and someone else spoke before I could. I can't have good performance if they don't give me tasks. I'm bored of doing nothing, fuck quarantine making people forget I exist.

    It sucks, but try giving yourself the work before anyone else can get there - both on your issue tracking system and verbally. So when explaining the results of your research, you can say something like:

    "...and therefore the next logical tasks are to implement x, y & z. I've written those tasks up as Jira stories and made a start on x."

    If anyone then doesn't hear you or cuts across, you can then just reiterate with "I've actually already started on x - I've added y & z in Jira, so feel free to grab those" (or similar.)

    You could have still said that you were already thinking about working on it

    Looks like there is no company work to do.
    So you finally have some spare time to work on your side projects...
