On the request of many users we changed the default policy for task reminders.Â Up toÂ now, you didn’t receive task reminders for due tasks by by default. Now we changed this. The defaultÂ behaviorÂ is now that you automatically receive task reminders for due tasks 3 days in advance. You can change the notificationÂ behaviorÂ in AgreeDo’s settings.
If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
We fixed an issue with the latest chrome browser. Some of you noticed dialos popping up and down continuously. As soon as we fixed the issue, google updated their library which also fixed it…:-)
We are currently investigating a problem with the feature online meetings on iOS 6 devices. Until we have a fix please uncheck the feature ‘Online Meetings’ on https://www.agreedo.com/MeetingApp.html#settings;meeting.

Hereâ€²s a summary of the most important comments from the ongoing discussion on LinkedIn about “What are the 5 most important rules for writing perfect meeting minutes?”.
Know your meeting type!
The right type of meeting minutes depend on the type of your meeting. Whether it’s the summary of a board meeting or a brain storming, makes a huge difference in what to write down!
Know your audience!
Be sure for whom you write you meeting minutes. Know their culture and their expectations. Whether they are used to a more narrative style or a more terse style (just facts). If you ask me, I am more on the short and to the point style side
Keep it short !
If you rewrite the current status too often the meeting minutes get useless. So try to only write those points down which are nearing their deadline and are currently most important. leave out all the others or group them together under another topic.
Keep the focus!
When meetings lose their focus it’s likely that their minutes also have no focus. So try to remember the purpose and the targets of the meeting. Take this as a starting point for deciding what items (i.e. decisions, tasks, important info) should be part of your minutes.
Know your people!
An important part of meeting minutes are tasks, due dates and their assignees. You need to be carefull of whom to send a reminder (in the meeting minutes). People who are well organized don’t need reminders. Therefore sending them a reminder could run you in problems! On the other hand you will have attendees and tasks assignees who regularly need reminders on their tasks. Remind them, and make sure they know they are constantly tracked.
There are lots of other good hints for perfect meeting minutes in the above mentioned discussion on linked in. So drop in and read of all it or even add your comments!

- AgreeDo:Â Drive a process with AgreeDo comment feature
Drive a process with AgreeDo comment feature!
|You can trigger actions from within AgreeDo! First, you need to understand the power of the commenting feature in AgreeDo. It can do so much more than just commenting. Just a short walk-through with an example:|
- During a meeting you want to get input on a specific item from your colleague “Jane”, who is not attending the meeting
- Select the meeting item in AgreeDo, then click on the comment button on the left to write a short note to Jane.
- In the comment dialog, check the â€œSend As e-mailâ€ option and add Janeâ€™s e-mail adress. Hit the “Add Comment” button..
- Now Jane gets an e-mail with your note along with the link to the item.
- She follows the link to the item and adds her comment.
- Next time you open your meeting minutes, you’ll find Jane’s comment! Note: This is also true, when you create a follow-up meeting and include the item in it..
It’s so easy to collaborate using the commenting feature along with Send as e-mail. Try this for:
- meeting preparation
- requesting info during a meeting
- requesting progress for an ongoing task
It all works the same! Try it now and send us your feedback.
