Instant Agenda is simple software that takes the pain out of meetings. Build agendas as a team, focus discussion, simplify follow up and send action items to your favorite productivity app. Unlike any similar product, it actually helps you run a better meeting with tools to promote good facilitation.
Good meetings take effort. Instant Agenda keeps you on track and on time, and gets you to put a bit of thought into meetings ahead of time.Cons:
IA is a separate web app used to create an agenda. Would be awesome to be fully integrated into gcal/outlook so I don't have to switch UIs.
Instant Agenda facilitates "lean coffee" style meetings. Participants vote on topics, and then IA runs through the agenda for you and prompts you to move on when time runs out on a topic.
Biggest value for me isn't the facilitation of meetings in real time, but the collaborative agenda building. Have a weekly 1:1 with your boss? Use IA to add topics throughout the week, and review a few minutes ahead of time so you know what you'll be talking about.Andrew Homeyer has used this product for one year.
Keeps my meetings on track while still being collaborativeCons:
Would be cool if Michael Ball could personally facilitate my meetings
Instant Agenda is the best (I use for all of my standing meetings) because it keeps the team on track and doesn't put me in the position to be the bad guy when someone derails my meeting or goes down a rat hole. It has a feature where the group can vote if something is going off topic which I love. I wish all of my customers and partners used Instant Agenda.Megan Espeland has used this product for one year.
