Take a Skip Day

Independent of a channel’s meeting interval, each user can always individually pause their participation or decide to only take part every other time.

Use Cases

Virtual Water Cooler

When teams work remotely or distributed, there is no chance to meet co-workers on the hallway or at the coffee machine. But without the occasional off-work chat, it becomes hard to build up team spirit.

With Macarons you have regular virtual coffee breaks with random team mates. And unlike real hallway encounters, Macarons helps you start the conversation with built in or custom ice breakers.

Connecting Teams

As organizations grow, teams evolve into specialized departments focusing on specific tasks and projects. But when there is no direct work relation, people from different departments rarely get in contact with each other.

Macarons can bridge this gap. Regular and fully random matching of people from multiple teams creates personal connections across organizational structures — allowing ideas to flow again.

Lunch Date Roulette

Lunch break is essential to recover and relax. Yet, often it becomes a routine and you go to the same place with the same people every day.

With Macarons you can easily set up a lunch lottery. So at least once per week, people are randomly matched in lunch pairs or groups. Make your lunch break more fun by shuffling groups and trying out new restaurants.
