1. What does LFTD stand for in workplaces?

Left for the day

Someone who sent you LFTD has "left for the day." You're most likely to receive this acronym in a message sent by a co-worker who has clocked out and left your workplace. Whatever you wanted that co-worker to do, it will have to wait until tomorrow.

Your co-workers may send you LFTD in chat, email, or text messages, when you ask them whether they're around and can complete a task. You may also encounter LFTD in your co-workers' Away messages, if they set one before leaving early for the day.


Alex, can you hop on a call with me at 4?
Sorry, LFTD because my kids got sick at daycare. Hoping to be back in tomorrow
No worries, hope they feel better!
