Meeting Assistant 3.21 is now available
Brace yourself – Winter ’19 is here! And for our beloved customers, it means new features.
Add Some Pizzazz to Your Meeting Notes with a new Rich Text Editor
Leave the era of plain-text notes behind by installing MA version 3.21. Now, you have all the modern rich text editor features at your disposal. Enrich the visual aspects of your meeting notes with for example italicized text. Rejected something, but wish to still retain the original text? Use strikethrough!
People commonly use lists to organize text and thoughts. Bulleted or numbered lists facilitate task management, to mention one thing as an example.
Even though it goes without saying, adding rich text support into Meeting Assistant finally fixed one complaint we have been getting every now and then. If a client was already using rich text in an object, the contents of that field were displayed as raw HTML. In practice, this means a mess of a text with cryptic strings riddled among the actual text.
Incrementally Growing Meeting List
Another major improvement relates to the meeting list. We decided to get rid of the old list using a one-time loading functionality. The new list will automatically update to display additional meetings when you scroll up or down. No more waiting when loading your lengthy list of meetings. User data is fetched incrementally, a block at a time.
Our aim was to enable Meeting Assistant users to better concentrate on tasks at hand or in the near future.
You start with 50 past meetings and 10 future meetings. Each time you scroll the list to the end of the current selection, a new set of 50 meetings is added to the list.
If you are one of our Meeting Assistant mobile users, you will be happy to hear that both of the aforementioned major improvements are available also for the mobile. The only difference is that new meetings get added to the list via the use of buttons, instead of continuous scrolling.
Blast From the Past
We added a couple of nifty features in the previous versions without any fanfare. This is a good opportunity to give a bit of a backstory. Meetings have different states, such as in preparation or ongoing. A while back, we added a new state called review.
The idea is to facilitate automated processes, that gets activated when the meeting is finished. When the meeting agenda items have been processed, and the meeting automatically enters the review state, you can for example launch an approval process for that meeting.
Also, to make completing meetings effortlessly, we added an Accept button into the meeting list.
This whole area is really interesting from the business perspective. Thus, it is worthy of a blog entry all on its own. We’ll get back to this in the near future. In the meantime, you can get a glimpse into the possibilities offered by meeting stages by reading the original stage introduction.
As is par for the course, this update fixes numerous bugs and comes with several performance enhancements.
