Florent's opinion, our marketing manager: "Clockwise has quickly become a must-have for my calendar management. I set my preferences, and Clockwise allows me to really stick to them. In teams, the extension allows you to find the best slots for meetings, and its autopilot feature is very handy."

Do you work in English? Grammarly is the extension to have on your browser. In addition to correcting grammar and spelling, this extension helps you with tone and sentence structure. It helps you eliminate writing errors and find the perfect words to express yourself.Grammarly shares real-time feedback on your Google Docs, Gmail, Twitter, LinkedIn or anywhere you can write: it helps you understand at a glance not only what you can improve, but also why these improvements can help your reader.

Florent's opinion, Growth Marketer: "Grammarly integrates with most web pages: Google Docs, Twitter, LinkedIn... This allows us to ensure consistency in all our English content."

Pocket

The Pocket extension for Chrome is the easiest and fastest way to save articles, videos, and anything else you find on the Internet. With just one click, the content you save is available on all your devices in one place and in a simple environment, so you can access it whenever you want, whether you're at home, at work, or on the go. Pocket is like your bookmark where you can access the content you want. Once the extension is installed, you can either use it to save a link, articles or images, or right-click on them: quick and efficient!

The opinion of Florent, our Growth Marketer: "I use Pocket to save articles to read later. It allows me to structure my monitoring. Its simplified interface makes for pleasant reading, with no superfluous content. My advice: use the highlighter to save the most important passages."

Loom

Loom is an extension that shows us the power of video. It allows you to get your message across quickly and clearly whether it's onboarding new employees, solving customer problems or giving a presentation. With this extension, you can record your screen, voice and face to create an instantly shareable video in seconds.With interactive feedback and comments throughout the timeline, it's never been easier to share a design with voice commentary, give a product demonstration or send a video to your colleagues. You can also record your screen, even outside of Chrome: to troubleshoot customer issues on your solution for example. Loom is the fast and convenient extension you won't be able to do without for sending videos.

The opinion of Gaël, our Business Developer:

"I use Loom to create a link with my prospects in a period marked by social distancing. In particular, I have replaced my usual emails and voice messages with videos made with Loom, which allow me to present what I have to say to my prospects while introducing myself in a more natural way to them."

Station

Station is the browser extension that helps you move from one application to another, from one note to another, from one message to another. With a search bar connected to all your favorite applications (and there are 670 available) you can view all your information directly from the extension and get there with one click. Switch from a Slack channel, to a Google Sheet document or a Pitch presentation directly from the Station extension.

The opinion of Florent, our marketing manager:

"Station is my new go-to for quickly searching and accessing a document on Google Drive or a conversation on Slack. The best part? Its integration with Google Calendar is the fastest way to view and join a meeting on Google Meet."

1Password

A password manager extension? 1password is for you. Effortlessly save your passwords and secure every account in one place. Thanks to this Chrome extension, you will only have one password to remember: the master password of your account. 1password goes even further with a subscription, offering you to share some passwords with your team. Thanks to this collaboration, no need to make secure files for newcomers in your company: you just have to add them on 1password. They'll have direct access to the shared passwords on your company space. The most convenient feature? The automatic filling on the different sites.

The opinion of Benjamin, our CEO:

"1Password has allowed me to really change the way I manage my passwords. Faced with quite a lot of news about password theft and dissemination, it is important to always use a full password (24 characters for my part), different on each site, and if possible, enable 2FA. The Chrome extension to have an advanced password manager integration is a must!"

RemoteBoard

RemoteBoard is a Chrome extension for internal communication. You can display your intranet information and internal tools in the new browser tab. The extension also allows you to send notifications to your employees, no matter where they work. RemoteBoard allows many integrations such as Google Slides, Sheets, LumApps, videos, gifs, custom buttons: your new tab becomes your best friend for productivity at work. Send out an internal survey, share a new presentation or welcome a new employee? Nothing could be easier with this extension. It's programmable in two clicks.

Charlotte, Junior Marketing:  

"A very handy extension for managing group cohesion and passing on information within a telecommuting team, but not only that. The possibility to update the RemoteBoard with a gif or a weather forecast gives us an extra reason to take a look at our new tab every day. Not to mention, of course, all the new presentations, future events, replays and KPIs that are just a click away."

Bonus : Slack Emojis

We couldn't introduce you to our favorite Chrome extensions without mentioning Slack Emojis. If, like us, you use Slack for your team conversations, you'll want to download this extension. With a few clicks you're logged into your account and you get a notification for each new emoji on the messages you send. Useful to be notified of your collaborators reactions when you send a document or ask a question on a Slack channel. The application is 100% free, very easy to use but it is also a side-project developed by our COO Simon. Something to be proud of.

The opinion of Gaël Giraud-Vinet, our Business Developer:  

"Finally a tool to instantly see my colleagues' reactions to my Slack posts or those I'm concerned with! All you have to do is install the free web extension on your browser and then you automatically receive all the notifications related to the reactions expressed in Slack."
