Live Minutes

 

(no filtering, secondary level)

With LiveMinutes, just share a meeting link with your peer, upload your docs, discuss and annotate them in real-time (in-browser audio or Skype), and capture the meeting’s interaction in beautiful reports!

This works great for discussing a presentation, a PhotoShop design, or an Excel budget. The meeting might start with a discussion on a document, but often participants need to draw a schema or fetch content on the Web. LiveMinutes integrates all these tools in one.

At the end of the meeting, LiveMinutes generates a beautiful report capturing the meeting’s interaction. Teams can keep track of meetings and decisions made, and pass the information to others.

Timeline View

Embed code cannot be obtained until a timeline is published and made “public” on the site. Once the embed code is obtained, the user can make a timeline “draft” form again, timeline is not publicily visible, and the embed code still functions. There is an “Uncategorized” category that does not list projects on the website, so if a user wanted less visibility, uncategorized would be the preferred method. Flash 9 or higher is needed for site to work properly.
