At the root, a meeting is a discussion. And one of the most important aspects to have a meaningful discussion is to stay in context, which is why we’ve added the latest feature changes to Instant Agenda.
Previously, when running your meeting and stepping through your agenda, the current topic in discussion would disappear from the agenda so as to bring attention to it at the top of the page, where notes, action items and decisions could be catalogued. And once you completed discussion on this topic, it would appear not in the agenda, but rather in the History tab. Here, you could reopen the topic for discussion if you needed to return to the topic.
Now, all of your topics stay in your agenda the entire duration of your meeting so you can easily stay in context, and know how the meeting is going at a quick glance. This optimizes a couple of things.
First, it’s much easier to access your closed topics and bring it back to the table if necessary – in a discussion, after all, what is decided or concluded in one topic can change the results of one you’ve already closed. The number of clicks are reduced so you can quickly keep the meeting moving.
Second, knowing how far along in your agenda you are is important as well. With the current topic in discussion remaining in the agenda, you can not only see visually how far into the agenda you’ve gone, but you can quickly see how the current topic applies to the rest of your agenda.
Third, everyone loves a checklist. Meetings aren’t always enjoyable, but knowing that each topic you move on from is getting you closer to meeting outcomes, the easier it becomes to make the most of the meeting.
