Since the pandemic, remote work has become a trend for job seekers and employers. It may be convenient because it keeps you away from the hazards of traffic and rush preparations. However, there are a few complications to consider in working remotely. Interaction with co-workers can be difficult with the lack of tonal and visual context. Remote work has also paved the way for the term “Zoom fatigue” due to the increase of video calling across the board.
That’s why over the past few years, several companies have created tools to help with remote work, whether it’s an interactive whiteboard for collaboration purposes, hanging out in a metaverse of the workplace, or simply spicing up a virtual meeting. Hera is just one of those tools that can help manage the complicated calendar of a remote worker.
How Hera works
Hera is a simple app that helps users give an overview of their day and schedule accordingly. Users can simply create an event and send the invite through email so that other participants can instantly join the scheduled meeting. In case there’s a conflict in schedule, users can also simply reschedule.
With Hera, users can share their availabilities with co-workers or other participants that they need in a virtual meeting. All they need to do is drag and drop open time slots; the app even has templates if users need to send a message across.
We're building Hera publicly so each month we publish our changelog to reveal our new features and improvements!— Hera (@hera_hq) January 28, 2022

Another cool thing about Hera is that it allows users to take notes beside the task or meeting that is scheduled. Users can just add their thoughts in a feature called Markdown.
Currently, Hera is available for Mac or can get into a call with one of the founders. It’s like having a calendar, scheduler, and sticky notes in one app. It is the new generation of calendars. This is the calendar that is preferable for multi-tasking.
