Meet with Confidence

Did you notice? Your meeting controls changed today

As of today you may have noticed some visual changes to your ReadyTalk meeting controls.

This is the first phase of a plan to create a more modern, intuitive interface that will improve the collaborative meeting experience while preserving the meeting interface for presentation oriented meetings. We think these changes enhance and clean up the meeting controls while giving you more real estate when presenting.

These initial enhancements are designed to create more content sharing space:

  • The Insert and Manage buttons moved into the presentation area.
  • The Previous and Next buttons, the Full Screen button, and the Annotation Tools moved to the content share area. (These tools automatically expand when you hover your cursor on the content share area. Likewise these tools will automatically collapse after a few seconds when your cursor leaves the content share area.)
  • The presentation bar can now be collapsed, giving you more real estate for sharing content. When you are the chairperson or co-presenter, the presentation bar will automatically collapse when another co-presenter shares their desktop. The additional space makes it easier to see what is being shared. 

As you can see in the side by side below and the collapsed presentation view below that, significant space has been saved by moving those buttons as well as providing a more sleek and intuitive layout for chairpersons and co-presenters.

So, why are we doing this?

We recognize that our controls are great for presentation-oriented meetings like product demos, training, webinars, etc... However, that leaves out a lot of users who use our service for more collaborative meetings. The end goal is to allow the chairperson to choose the type of meeting that works for them whether that is a collaborative meeting or a presentation.

Over the next several months, we'll be developing and testing more enhancements to our controls. If you'd like to be involved in this testing we'd love to have you on board! We are forming a customer insights team to help give early feedback on new product ideas and enhancements. Email cit@readytalk.com if you'd like to become a member.
