Are you looking to finish all of your holiday shopping on Cyber Monday this year? Check out 5 tips for getting the most out of Cyber Monday while working remotely.

1. Plan your Cyber Monday strategy.

Get your list and check it twice before the sales start. This way you can schedule meetings around key sale start times as well as make sure you don’t waste any time browsing for things you don’t need. You can get your deals and not skip a beat at work.

2. Share your window, not your screen.

There’s nothing more embarrassing than having your team accidentally see your window with your way too full Amazon shopping cart when you meant to share the excel chart with your quarterly budget…

So instead of sharing your entire screen, you can simply select the specific window you want to share with your team in And when you’re done presenting, you can give screen sharing power over to the next presenter. Which leaves you free to keep your eye out for Cyber Monday deals.

Use a password manager like LastPass to store all of your passwords securely. You can then log in to all your favorite places quickly and get all the Cyber Monday savings. You’ll be finished with all your holiday shopping faster and able to get back to maximum productivity levels. Using LastPass you can also save credit card information and shipping addresses to save even more time during the checkout process!

4. Take advantage of meeting recordings.

Of course, you should always attend all necessary meetings with your team. But it’s understandable that real life might get in the way of things once in a while so make sure your team is recording the meeting. This way you can access the meeting at any time and stay in the loop. This is also helpful if you were in the meeting, but need a refresher on what was covered down the line!

5. Get more done with smart integrations.

Take advantage of the helpful integrations to streamline your productivity during the Cyber Monday madness. Make it easy to schedule a meeting on the team’s favorite calendar app. This way no one will have any excuse for missing a meeting. You can also quickly get in touch with your team by starting a meeting directly from your favorite chat client like Slack or HipChat or within project management tools like Trello. You’ll be so efficient with your work that you won’t have to worry about missing your favorite Cyber Monday deal.
