Does anyone else have major issues with being interrupted whilst programming

I just lose track , I have it all in my head get an email read it try and get back into it but it takes me 10 minutes

Problem is I'm the main dev. I get a lot of emails 😔

    there was a dev here on devRant who wrote a ms Outlook plugin in order to automate and prioritize his emails. The important ones would be sent to his slack chat.

    Try planning on paper before implementing (when you are dealing with narrow scoped tasks). Helps a lot.

    Handle email, Slack, etc at specific moments, like at the start of the day, after lunch and at the end of the day.

    Tell people they can use a specific channel for emergencies (an email with special keyword in the subject, a specific unmuted Slack channel), and revoke that right from abusers.
