Thank you for coming here!
I recently joined a project team as an expert to support remotely. Everything related to work is communicated within the work chat group and people are expected to be responsible due to the tight timeline.
Last Wednesday, the project manager had to take half day off for a presentation to another client.
So throughout the day, the other team members covered as much as possible for the project manager and she replied messages whenever she could.
Everything was going well.

This was a task not easily covered by other members of the team, as the outline required full understanding of project status, stakeholder relations, client management intentions etc etc.
And everyone had enough on
