How are things going?

Thanks for asking. Everything is not so bad, but I'm a little busy.
Due to current situation, I'm working more at home and there are many things that I should do when I come to work. Also, I have more opportunities to do new jobs since I just changed departments last month.
So it is very peaceful and meaningful for me to take a coffee break with you.

1 - Use the article 'the" to specify that is a specific "current situation"
Oh, you got your hands full if that's the case. It's a pleasure to have a coffee break with you. So, how do you manage your time these days?

Let's all have a good time! I'm curious and take on whatever that I find interesting.
I work toward the goal of accomplishing those tasks by deciding a few things to do in a day in advance during telecommuting these days.

You did a great job! Keep it up!
That is good. It's good to plan ahead. Do you like working from home? I like working from home. I get a lot of things done.

Yes, I'm a software engineer, so if I have a PC, I can work at home.
However, there are various temptations at home, so I think that it's a bit difficult to work while overcoming such temptations.

1 - "From" is a more appropriate preposition
The best way to work at home is to develop a strict timetable that includes work and all your temptations. For example, you will work for 2 hours and then 2 hours of your temptation tasks.

That's a good idea! Thank you for your good suggestions.
Do you work on the idea? With the outbreak of the COVID-19, I think that how each worker performs properly was tested throughout work from home.

That's a good idea! Thank you for your good suggestions.
Have you worked on your idea? With the outbreak of the COVID-19, I think that the way how each worker performs properly was tested throughout work from home.

1 - Best to use the present perfect to ask if they have already worked on it
2 - Best to say "way" as it sounds more straightforward/ if you say "properly", you're already judging or assuming each worker has performed properly, so it's best not to say it
Yes, I do use a timetable, it helps me with my time management. Due to COVID-19, people will have to be self-disciplined because they will be working from home and face many temptations like you.

I will practice your good idea from tomorrow while working from home.
In the future, I would like to consider ways of working that make use of the lessons learned throughout COVID-19.
