We hope you're safe and healthy. As organizations around the world embrace remote work, with urgently put together work from home policies in the face of coronavirus (COVID-19), our parent company, Zoho, is offering a remote work tool kit free of cost until July 1, 2020. Check out Zoho Remotely.
We understand that this is a very trying time for the entire world, and we commend the amazing work our doctors and medical personnel are doing, but we also need to think about our IT help desk teams who are fighting to keep our companies running during this crisis.
Help desk teams are being stretched thin and flooded with VPN connectivity issues, requests for resources for at-home work like laptops, and more. A huge shout-out to all the help desk teams keeping us afloat! We'd love to hear your help desk stories and learn about how you're dealing with all the tickets and requests as a result of this quarantine. Share your helpdesk story, or thank your help desk team for doing an amazing job using the hashtag #helpdeskheroes.
