  5. LATAM Reps Call Survey

In the end of 2018, we’ve done a Rep survey to analyze the effectiveness of Reps call activity. Based on the survey and data that we’ve collected from various sources, we made this analysis. One of the recommendations from the analysis is then to organize an experiment call in LATAM time zone. We’ve done 2 calls in early January 2019. As a follow up of the experiment, we wanted to do a brief survey to find out if the calls were actually effective. The survey will be open from the 1st of April until 10th of April. Please fill it out before then. This will be a valuable feedback for us to evaluate our experiment.

Firefox 66

What’s in new !
Starting with the release of Firefox 66 for desktop and Firefox for Android, Firefox will block audible audio and video by default.
