BusyBlock

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Happy Monday, everyone! While some of us have been back in business for a week already, this is the first working day of 2015 for a lot of people. Shame.

Having trouble getting back into the groove after your 15th cup of coffee? Luckily for all of us, DropBox has shared a little productivity secret with us – an internal tool of theirs called BusyBlock. It’s a simple system that allows you to throw up a little red flag and let your coworkers know that you need to be left alone for a while. Sounds perfect!

Their beautiful explainer video was made by Markus Magnusson.
