After pandemi We was often going to meeting about our works at school but now we working from home. We also hold meeting from zoom.

I have a meeting with my director at the end of the month. I must prepare the document for the meeting . we always discuss the financial situation of the company such as business results, total access, accounts receivable, accounts payable, financial statements. Because I am a general accountant. Then I have to make a financial plan for the next month.
Sometimes when I do not prepare the documents, we could postpone the meeting to the first of the next month

Telling the truth I hate meetings. I think most of them are waste of time. I've visited hundreds of meetings and I would like to say - every other of them could be replaced by emails and phone calls. Honestly, you have to postpone your tasks going to a meeting to listen to someone's problems which you even not interested in. Then you return to your workplace and find another task in addition to those you've laid aside before.
Yeah, I admit, sometimes you need to meet your colleagues face to face to discuss problems which can't be solved by mailing. But not twice a day, anyway.

I don't have meetings because in my country we are still in quarantine

Hello,
I would like to ask if there is some option for editing a comment after being posted ( but before being approved and published) . Many times, I submit a comment and just after that I realize it's incomplete or there is some grammar or typing errors, but it is too late to correct,
Thanks for your attention

Hello Asni,

No, I'm afraid there is now way for you to do this. I'd suggest you leave your comment for a few minutes after you've written it. Then if you read it once again before posting it, you will probably find such errors.

It's actually a good practice for your writing in general, too!

All the best

For every project, we needed a number of meetings to assign tasks for the next delivery. Also, those meetings were important to control and monitor the work of each member of the team and estimate the costs so that if there were some deviation, we act urgently to deliver it on deadline.
We used some kind of mobile application to arrange them. In this way, we can move, postpone or bring meetings forward anytime because everyone is easily reachable.

In the meantime l don't have any meeting and also two next month that I have to go to get it, but in the past before coronavirus pandemic I was go to meeting every Friday with my friends or on wedding's family.

We, all students in our class, have too much expectations on this trip. But the pandemic disease haven't finished yet.
So, I wish to end this pademic disease very fast. You all do take good care of yourselves.

As I am a student, I don't have meeting to go. During this quarantine, my close friends and me meet each other by using zoom meeting app. Every year, final part-1 students in University of Medicine have to go a trip in Myanmar.
My friends and me made a group for this trip and we talk about our lives, experiences and play games through zoom app so that we can close each other. This is such a nice meeting for me. My friends, members of our group, are good-natured and helpful enough.
I bet we will be the best group in the class.
