Thanks for chiming in Nguyen Kim Son! Do you have recommendations for how to implement such trial periods? What are some of the tradeoffs and considerations, in your opinion?

I think this period could be “informal” at first: the person participates in other team meeting, even takes small tickets if they want. The “official” period starts when the person decides to fully join the team and last for several days. Normally the person should know at this point if they like the team (and vice versa) so this period is more of a confirmation.
