Online meetings, conducted using services such as WebEx™ and GoToMeeting™, are a terrific way to collaborate with people both inside and outside the organization.
But online meetings also have drawbacks. One of the most common is the lack of a shared set of notes that everyone can see, such as a whiteboard.
SmartDraw provides an ideal solution: a visual diagram designed for online meetings. It works like an electronic whiteboard, except that it's much faster and offers a permanent, shareable record of the meeting.
It's very easy to use. Simply open the Task Management diagram in SmartDraw and build an agenda in advance of the meeting. Lay out main topics to be discovered, and add discussion items as subtopics. The visual format makes it simple to build, edit, and understand. You can even assign action items to individuals and set completion dates.
SmartDraw makes it possible to create these shared notes in real time because of its automated design. It's actually quicker than writing on a real whiteboard. But unlike using a word processor, you get a clean, easy-to-read visual diagram.
When the meeting ends, simply share the file with the team using tools that you already know. Action items and completed tasks can be viewed and updated on any device, anytime, anywhere. You can even convert your meeting diagram into a full project plan, complete with a Gantt chart and timeline, in a single click.
SmartDraw lets everyone collaborate on what's important: getting things done.
