Today, we are excited to announce the launch of ReadyTalk Quick Launcher - a tool available on your desktop that makes it easier and faster to start, join, and invite others to meetings. This tool will be a favorite for people who would like a quicker, persistent way to connect to their ReadyTalk accounts. If you are tired of logging into ReadyTalk through the browser to gain access to your account then this is definitely the tool for you. Quick Launcher gives you the ability to:


  • Start an On-Demand Meeting with a single click. The Quick Launcher stores your account credentials eliminating the need to type in any numbers or codes.

 


  • View a list of Scheduled Meetings in Conference Center and choose the meeting you’d like to start.

 

 


  • Skip all audio prompts with the Start Audio Meeting feature. The Quick Launcher will dial you and immediately connect you to your Audio Meeting. It remembers the last 10 numbers you dialed so you can quickly select connect to your cell phone, desk phone or conference phone. Check the option to "Launch web controls on connect" to open up the web meeting controls for managing your audio meeting or for running an On-Demand Web and Audio Meeting.

 

 


  • Instantly create an email invite with Invite Others. All the login information is included giving your participants a quick and easy way to join your ReadyTalk meetings.

 

 


  • Join a Web Meeting faster when you're colleague hosts a ReadyTalk meeting. Simply enter the 7 digit access code of the On-Demand meeting you’d like to join and the Quick Launcher will drop you right into the meeting, bypassing the registration process.

 

 


 

 

 

The Quick Launcher can be opened by double clicking on the optional desktop icon, left or right clicking on the tray ico. The goal of this tool is to be available for you anytime you need it, but to not be in the way when you don't.

The ReadyTalk Quick Launcher is available today free of charge and can be downloaded for Mac or Windows here: http://www.readytalk.com/support-training/downloads. If you have any questions about the Quick Launcher or are having any issues downloading please contact ReadyTalk Customer Care at 800.843.9166. As always, if you have feedback, feature enhancements, or questions give us a call at any time or leave them in the comments below.

Love the concept. I immediately downloaded for my Mac OS X Version 10.6.8 I can't seem to get the start on demand meeting to work. After playing around for about 5-6 minutes I was finally able to get the connecting to network box but then received a network error and was eventually logged off automatically. Looks like there are still some bugs?

@Angie - Thanks so much for the feedback. I hope it works out great for you! @Katie - Very sorry for the inconvenience I have forwarded your comment to our customer care team who should be following up with you shortly to troubleshoot. Thanks for making us aware though. Please contact customer care at 800.843.9166 if you'd like to expedite the troubleshoot process. Thanks!

So happy to have this work immediately. Usually my company requires us to get IT Help Desk assistance for installations, which is a minor hassle, but I was able to install this tool myself. Thanks for simplifying the launch. Two other items on my wish list -- 1) volume control for audio-only calls via the web hub; 2) larger font size display in the list of phone numbers or ability to zoom/magnify.

Thanks for the comments Elizabeth. I will definitely submit those feature requests for you. Take care!

Helpful, but it needs to show up as a "Mac App" on my Command + Tab app switcher - it's hidden and I need to click it in the top bar.

Also, if it could remember my last meeting number, and save a list of frequently used meeting numbers with a name option, that would be helpful.

See "Mobile Day" iphone app for some ideas to pull into this desktop widget - and also help integrate ReadyTalk into that app better - it keeps failing to sync.

Thanks a mucho!

Thanks for the feedback Travis - I will absolutely pass on to the team. We have several planned enhancements for Quick Launcher coming this year so stay tuned.
