As someone who frequently gets pinged in random teams' meetings as
well as attending many regularly over the course of a week, I find
having them spread out as much as possible to be helpful to me, at
least. If everyone pings me at the same time because they're all
holding meetings in conflicting timeslots in many channels, I'll
probably just have to start scheduling "office hours" instead and
telling people to arrange any in-meeting input from me well in
