We’ve added a tool that you can use inside of your meeting to keep it on track. It’s a slide show view of your agenda, and it shows you which topic you should be discussing and how much time has been spent on this topic.
How does this help?
The biggest complaint we hear from meeting organizers is meetings get off track. The conversation drifts away from the agenda or too much time is spent on a topic, resulting in the meeting not accomplishing its goals.
The in-meeting tool addresses this problem. It should be used inside of the meeting and it helps the organizer drive the meeting. It prominently shows you which topic you should be discussing, how much time has been spent on this topic, and what’s left on the agenda.
It also lets you take organized minutes during the meeting. It can be difficult to drive the meeting, follow the discussion, and take minutes all at the same time. To help, we’ve designed the tool so you can quickly summarize each topic’s discussion.
How does this work?
On the right side of your meeting page there’s a link titled “Use the in-meeting tool” under the section “Meeting Tools”:
Clicking that link will launch the in-meeting tool in a new window. When you run the tool you’ll see which topic you should be discussing, who should be presenting it, and how much time has been spent on this topic:
You can also add minutes for each topic, assign action items, and add parking lot items.
The tool is meant to be used inside of your meeting, but feel free to try it out beforehand. You can try it as many times as you need, and it won’t affect any of your meeting’s information.
