lovely little UI details

My company relies on Slack, and while Zoom still seems to be the favorite for Work from Home standup meetings, its "Call" feature is great for quick conversations.

Slack of course has a "share screen" button, and even gives participants the ability to "draw" on the shared screen, with a highlighter like pen. One detail I liked is that the marker fades out on its own after like ten seconds... given that  screen display is often changing, it neatly sidesteps that usual problem of the markup not matching what's beneath. I like it as a subtle solution to a UX problem other people might overlook as an issue, much like Basalmiqs Big Blue Arrow...
