Nice to iMeet You
These days, many of us have to attend conference calls and meetings in which the participants are spread out across a lot of different locations. Increasingly, we have less face-to-face interaction and more voice chats, which means that presentations aren’t as dynamic, it’s hard to get everyone on the same page, and the real value of collaboration is lost. That’s why we’re so excited about our new integration with iMeet.
When you sign up for iMeet, you create a virtual ‘room’ that you can ask up to 15 people to join. Enabling video means you’ll see everyone in your meeting in one place and interact as if you’re all sitting around the same conference table. With our new integration, you’ll be able to bring Evernote right into your room to capture more insightful information from your meeting.
Evernote + iMeet: More context around your meetings
In addition to enabling you to invite people into your own private meeting room, iMeet also lets you share files and your Evernote notes in a visual way with everyone in the room, fundamentally transforming the way that you’re used to exchanging information when meeting with someone via your computer.
If you make a habit of taking diligent meeting notes in Evernote or want to share your notes, you’ll love this integration.
- First thing’s first: authorize your Evernote account by hovering over your own meeting cube.
- In your profile, you’ll see a little Evernote icon.
- Once you click on it, you’ll be asked to authorize the app.
- Pull up a note from your Evernote account to share with everyone in the room. The host of the iMeet meeting can share a note that will float to the forefront of your screen and be visible and accessible to everyone in the room.
- Create a new note from your Evernote account. Any iMeet participant can link and use their Evernote account privately while in a meeting.
- Take group notes. If you click on the Notes button next to Chat, you can take group notes in the ‘Room Notes’ area. You can save the content of the group note into Evernote. In addition to the content of the note, it will also include information like who contributed to the note as well.
- Take notes for yourself. Going to ‘My Notes,’ you can type away, without disrupting the conversation, and save your personal meeting notes to your Evernote account.
Ideas for using iMeet with Evernote
- For HR and recruiting. Use iMeet to conduct webcam interviews with potential candidates and take notes in Evernote to remember what you liked and didn’t like.
- For sales training. Practice customer-facing presentations and elevator pitches with colleagues. Save collaborative feedback to Evernote.
- For team meetings and presentations. Share Evernote notes, PowerPoint presentations, and Word documents on screen while discussing them with colleagues.
- In a legal setting. Use iMeet to conduct a deposition or share documents with opposing counsel. Jot down questions in ‘My Notes’ and refer to them in Evernote later.
- In an education setting. Whether you teach at the school or university level, use iMeet to connect with colleagues, share research, etc. Pull up an article you clipped using the Evernote Web Clipper and float it on screen during your meeting.
