Great meetings have great introductions by the meeting owner that sets out the scope, purpose and goals of the meeting.
Set an agenda and let participants comment and share their thoughts ahead of time to make sure all invited can contribute meaningfully to the meeting.
Clear agendas allow participants to opt-out of a meeting if they don't have anything meaningful to contribute. This frees them up to do more meaningful work while still having access to meeting notes after the meeting.
A clearly visible meeting agenda makes it easy for everyone to follow the flow on the meeting and arrive prepared.
Rich meeting notes for each item provides everyone the information they need. You can even @-tag other meetings, people, tasks, goals, projects, announcements or any other data you have in Workjoy for rich context.
Most meetings don't make an impact. That's why we have build in the option to add a final decision for each agenda item and nudge everyone towards action.
Actions items are assigned directly as tasks in Workjoy so you never lose track.
With meeting notes and highlighted decisions everyone can go back and recap the meeting.
With highlighted decisions you make it clear to everyone what should get done.
