3 updates to make remote work a breeze: Zoom, the new Calendar, and comment replies

Staying connected and collaborating is crucial for being productive while working remotely. That means teams are messaging, hopping on video calls, and scheduling meetings more than ever before.

That’s why we built three new ways to keep your team happy and connected, no matter where they are. You can reply to specific comments, instantly start a Zoom call, and completely manage your calendar to get the flexibility you need while working remotely — all in Front.

Reply to a specific comment for clarity ✏️

So much of the collaboration in Front happens in comments. Now you can avoid clutter in group conversations by responding to a specific comment. 

Want to iterate on an idea, or clarify what was said? Just reply to it directly. It’s an easy way to catch up when jumping into an ongoing conversation, or make sure a critical comment isn’t missed.

Hop on Zoom in a single click 🎥

Often your most genius work happens in spontaneous brainstorms or in face-to-face chats at your desk — so we recreated that experience in your inbox.

With our new Zoom integration you can start a call from the comments bar in Front in a single click. The seamless integration lets you have quick chats or group meetings, no matter where you are.
