I would also go for having people post office hours -- hours when they can be easily interrupted and answer questions.

This allows people to manage their energy and use their best time for deep work, and allows people who need an answer to know when a good time will be to virtually drop in and get an answer.

On the guide, we wrote we have by default ALLOW ANY, DENY SOME. If you are online then you can be interrupted unless you set your status to the headphone emoji.

Otherwise posting office hours may force the idea of how many office hours each person is doing and that's not something we want to measure.

It depends on which things you need to measure based on the type of company you have or you want. A D2C company clearly needs a fixed amount of office hours where a SaaS company may not.
