In the turbulent times we live in, it is worth noting that management guru Peter Drucker once pointed out that great managers tend to have great meetings. In addition to our work in developing Meetin.gs we have once again collected some interesting tips and tools for helping you to improve your meeting management skills. Enjoy!

New with Meetin.gs: 2-column Meeting View
Based on your feedback we have made some user interface improvements with the aim to reduce complexity and increase the clarity of the user experience. We dropped the chat section as an overlapping feature with the material comments and made your meeting experience simpler with the 2-column view.
You will find the previous chat conversations under your meeting materials. Note, that there is still a chat function when scheduling is going on – the chat window will open below the scheduling options.
