Most of my meetings nowadays are held online.
I hate being late to meetings, but I also like getting things done. When my calendar gives me the reminder about a meeting 10 mins before I’ve developed a habit of joining the meeting straight away so I am already in the meeting when other people join. That way I can continue my work without forgetting to join right on time. I’ve found if I don’t do that I’ll dismiss the notification, get caught up in my work (flow) and forget to join.
This was all well and good at my previous company where we used Google Meet. But my current company uses Microsoft Teams and when I join 10 mins early everyone else invited to the meeting gets a notification telling them I’ve started the meeting! Who designed Microsoft Teams thinking that was a good idea!?!
Any ideas how I can work with this?
