In the next 3 minutes, you'll learn the basics to getting started with Meeteor.
Here's what we'll cover:
- Using workspaces to organize your meetings
- What you can do in a workspace
- Using Meeteor to have better meetings
- A few bonus tips
Everything in Meeteor is organized into workspaces so you can find all related meetings in one place. A workspace can be a team, project, workstream or department—however you organize your work.
You can create a new workspace or switch between workspaces in two ways:
- Use the workspace navigator dropdown menu.
Note that only workspace that you belong to will appear in this menu.
- Use the "+" button in the top navigator bar to create new workspace.
Click on the "+" button at the top and select 'Create Workspace' to create a new one.
Workspaces house meetings, tasks, documents, learnings and decisions that all relate to the workspace topic. You can navigate between a workspace's pages using the left-hand navigation menu. You can also use the workspace info page to manage the workspace.
On each page, you can create new and view previous content. Meeteor will automatically pull content from your meetings into their respective pages, so everything will be in one place.

- Add Meeting participants or guests
Meeteor makes it easy to invite people to join your meeting, so you can collaborate with your team, client or anyone, even before they become a Meeteor user. Select a participants' names from the dropdown menu if they already have an account. If you don't see the person you want to invite on the list, click "Can't find someone?" in the dropdown menu and type in first name, last name and email to add this person to the meeting.

Meeteor users and guests will both receive an email with all the information on the View Summary tab along with the meeting participant list, date and time.
- Follow through on the Meeting Outcomes
Use the left navigation to visit the Tasks page to follow through on your Tasks and address Backburner items. Visit the Decisions and Learning page to quickly find prior decisions and learnings without digging through old meeting notes or email.
