Meet with Confidence

Why I love Join a Meeting

Like most companies, at ReadyTalk, we have a lot of meetings. We even have the dreaded “meeting about an upcoming meeting.”

A typical meeting in the marketing department means that most of the participants are in a conference room but one or two people are usually working from home; and there’s always a launch plan being discussed and it’s usually an Excel file.

Obviously, we use ReadyTalk’s web conferencing service to share the document and make changes. Even though we are all around a conference table with a projector in the room sometimes it’s just more convenient to participate on your own laptop. Because it’s an internal meeting and it’s not a structured meeting, we never decide whose access code we’re using until we’re all on the call. Once we decide, everyone jumps out to our website and logs in that way – it doesn’t take long but it’s always a distraction.

Not anymore.

Yesterday, the ReadyTalk Quick Launcher was released. It has a lot of great features, but my favorite is “Join a Meeting.” It makes joining a meeting so fast! Here’s how:

Right click on Quick Launcher icon in the task bar and select Join Web Meeting:

Enter the access code of the meeting you want to join:

And that’s it; you’re automatically connected to your meeting.

Internally, we’ve been using this feature for weeks while Quick Launcher was in Beta. It’s so easy to use and makes it simple to get an ad-hoc meeting going quickly. If you haven’t tried it yet, you can learn more in yesterday’s blog post. If you’d like to try it out for yourself, download it today.

If you've already downloaded Quick Launcher, we'd love to hear what you think.
