Open Day April and May 2020 - Getting Used To Working Remotely

Summary of Frappe Team Activities for the month of April and May 2020

 · 3 min read

Open Day is where we share our activities of the month with each other and the community. It's when we take a step back and see where we stand. To see past open days, click here.

April and May 2020


In April and May, the team worked remotely due to the lockdown imposed by the government in India to contain the spread of COVID-19. This hasn't changed much for most of us though, as Frappe always had a remote work option which many availed (the office in Mumbai has an average attendance of around 50%).

Since we had our self-appraisals in April (you can read more about it here), the open day was cancelled and in May everyone showcased all the work done in the 2 months.

This was the second open day conducted remotely (first time in march), as opposed to having everyone attend it at the office in Mumbai. While we were still getting used to remote meetings, by the end of it we all liked it.

It was nice to meet the team after a while, everyone shared their work accomplishments and how they spent their time at home coping with the new reality.
