Start Meet Now

To start Meet Now, go to your Beespace and clic on ajouter-note-icone icon next to My Meetings (1) or New Meeting (2) bottom on the top of the window.


Then, just choose the meeting type that suits you: is it a last-minute meeting (e.g. scrum) or a structured and planned meeting (such as a board meeting)?

In this case, we will click on Meet Now :


Meet Now will allow you to start a meeting instantly, without having to prepare and distribute an agenda.

Very useful if you need to hold an unscheduled meeting, but want to keep track of the decisions made and tasks assigned !

Hold a Meeting

At the start, Meet Now always contains the first topic. You can also add topics as you wish during the meeting.

So, you are already ready to take notes, assign tasks and record your decisions.

As with a Scheduled Meeting, all Beenote features are available in an Immediate Meeting.


Please note that the time will be in red because the meeting was not scheduled with time allotments for each topic.
