I've been working at home for over 6 years now, and I love it.

Takes some getting used to at the beginning, but I would not have it any other way now.

We use Microsoft Teams and you can mute people, chat threads, and other channels so that you are not bothered. You can set your status to "Busy" and go about your work. Answer chats/messages at your leisure.

Basically, you have to tell certain people to bugger off....in a nice, professional way. Big Grin | :-D

I am usually heads down coding for 6-8 hours a day. I answer questions in the morning for 30 mins and at the end of the day for 30 mins.

I only let certain people interrupt me during the work day, all others need to schedule a meeting to speak with me (approx. < 15 mins tops).
