We have been working diligently to provide customers with the best meeting experience possible. We are proud to say that their experience is about to get even better!Here is a list of some of the powerful new features that users can expect in MeetingBooster 3.1:
It is now possible to add tags called Meeting Attributes to a meeting. For instance, if you wanted to include a “Confidentiality” field for your meetings, you would use a Meeting Attribute.
Meeting attributes are also searchable.
A meeting attribute can be used to:
- Add additional information to meetings
- Add to the Agenda and Minutes
- Categorize a meeting – You can add sequential numbering to meetings and define composite attributes for meetings
Task Permission Improvements
Meetings lead to tasks, and tasks lead to results, and managing task permissions with MeetingBooster just got better!
You can now choose to enable/disable Task Permissions. For instance, if you wanted to stop the Due Date from being changed by an Owner of a task you would enable Task Permissions.
Task Permissions can be applied in the following ways:
- Admin User can Set Permissions for Task Owner: All task permissions can be customized by an Admin user to specify what Task Owners can change on tasks.
- Task Creator can Specify which Permissions can be changed by Task Owner: The Task Creator can define what properties can be changed by the Task Owner for each task. This option can also be disabled by an Admin user.
- Project Permissions: Projects are now only visible to members by default. This means that any user who is not part of the project will not be able to see it.
Performance optimization within MeetingBooster means it is even faster than before! General performance enhancements as well as improvements to the task list and meetings have been made to the MeetingBooster system so you will see a noticeable difference over previous versions.
