Anyone who works with external partners will stress the importance of face time. From creative agencies hunkering down at a company’s headquarters for a week of brainstorming to salespeople stopping by their customers’ offices, these interactions are a staple of business as usual ... and business in 2020 is anything but usual.

How do you move work and relationships forward when these types of meetings are no longer possible? More than 32,000 Slack customers rely on shared channels to bridge those in-person gaps.

The tips below will help your teams work together just as closely as they would in person.
