The main aim of a Complish discussion is to help you have 'fewer, better meetings', whether they be asynchronous, or you plan to run them synchronously. With either of these types of meetings, having a meeting agenda and keeping meeting notes, is indispensable to running an effective meeting.
Using Complish discussions to run your meetings
With a Complish discussion, you can run any one of your asynchronous meetings from directly within a discussion using a blank note to start, or a meeting template. Or, you can use discussions to write your meeting agenda or take notes to accompany a synchronous meeting.
1) Using Discussions for Asynchronous Meetings
Anytime you want to discuss something without a call, Complish discussions can be used. Some examples of types of async meetings you may want to have with discussions include: presenting a proposal or brainstorming with your team. An asynchronous discussion can be used in two main ways.
As a collaborative workspace to discuss a specific topic.
To act as a meeting agenda, on which you can invite users and encourage them to add their discussion points to the 'meeting agenda'. Once everyone has contributed their discussion points, let the discussion begin.
2) Using Discussions for Synchronous Meetings
The best way to have 'fewer, better meetings' is to prepare well for them. If you have a synchronous meeting in your calendar, link it to a discussion!
Complish's discussion feature can then be used both as your meeting agenda and/or your meeting minutes. When creating a new discussion, or note within a discussion, you have the option to create a discussion from a blank note or work off a pre-determined template.
