How to Get the Most out of Your Meeting Room

Now that you've signed up for a Meeting Room, here are some of our best tips for making the most of it!

Put your Meeting Room link in your email signature

That way you’ll never forget it, and people can always find where to meet you.

Make sure you have a good WiFi connection

Video chat requires good WiFi, so be sure you’re ready to go before you start a meeting. If you aren’t sure how to check your connection, we offer a tech check within the meeting room that does this for you.

Think outside the box!

We know meeting rooms are great for remote teams, but the possibilities really are endless. Host a virtual movie night or Dungeons and Dragons campaign!

Cut phone calls cold turkey

Phone calls are a bad habit that we’re here to help you break. After all, people are meant to talk face-to-face, and video chat is as close as you can get without actually being in person. Plus, video chat has been proven to build tighter bonds within your team.

Collaborate, collaborate, collaborate

Screen sharing allows you to collaborate on tasks while maintaining connection with your team, family, or friends. Whether you’re working on a novel, a wedding speech, or a grant proposal, allows for real time teamwork from anywhere in the world.

Meet with older family members, face to face.

Research from a National Institutes of Health grant informed’s design to ensure that it’s easy to use for older adults. Connect with grandparents or older relatives on a platform that is quite literally designed to accommodate them.

Look your best

Looking good on camera can be tricky, so be sure you have some natural light, the right camera angle, and are sitting up straight. For some more tips, check out this article.

Practice looking at the camera when you’re speaking

This one is tricky and requires lots of practice, but can make a big difference in how you’re perceived on camera. While you’re speaking, look into your webcam, but make sure to look at guests when they’re speaking.

Happy chatting!
