Plan your daily stand-ups, performance reviews, and weekly status updates using the Meetings feature in Kenjo. Go to Settings > Overview and activate Meetings. Once activated, you will find it at Home > Meetings. 




Creating a meeting


Create a new meeting using the [+] button and complete the wizard steps:


  1. Name the meeting and select a department if needed.
  2. Choose the corresponding template for your meeting:
    • Blank template (use this option to set up your own template, adding the agenda items you want).
    • Daily standup (pre-defined template for a daily standup meeting).
    • Weekly status update (pre-defined template for a weekly status update meeting).
    • Team leader update (pre-defined template for a team leader update meeting).
  3. Set up date and time.

Schedule recurring meetings


When you set up the date and start time, you can activate the "Repeat meeting" option, then select on which day or days of the week the meeting will take place. 


Reminders


If you would like to remind participants 10 minutes before the meeting starts, you tick the "Send reminder" option in the second step of the wizard. 

If you didn't select this option, you can still use the bell action next to the "Participants" label to send an immediate reminder to all expected participants (i.e: participants not working the day when the meeting will take place won't receive the reminder). 



Participants


Each meeting has an owner and any number of participants. Add more participants using the appropriate link. Use [...] to mark employees as absent, transfer the meeting ownership, or delete participants.


Employees who are absent (vacation, sickness, etc. ...) are automatically marked as absent in the meeting.


Agenda


Add all the necessary items to the agenda so you don't forget anything. The following options are available:

  • Text: Text boxes are especially good for capturing all kinds of thoughts and notes. These can be changed either by the meeting owner or by any participant.


  • List: With the help of a list, you simply create a checklist, which you only have to check off in the conversation. This way you can see immediately whether there are still any unanswered points. Here, too, access to the list can be restricted or made available to all.


  • Tasks:  Use the agenda item Tasks to create and assign tasks directly to all participants. These then appear as usual in the Tasks area of the main navigation. This ensures that distributed tasks are always present during the meeting.


  • Question: Would you like to document the opinions of the participants on a topic? Simply add a question and define the visibility. You can determine whether the answers are stored anonymously or by name and whether all participants have access to the answers or only the owner. In order not to falsify the answers, all answers remain hidden until you have answered yourself.

General options available via [...]:


  • Save as template: For recurring meetings following the same pattern, it is a good idea to save the structure as a template once it has been set up. Next time, this can be loaded directly with one click.
  • Load template: Load an existing template and add the saved process to the current state of your meeting.
  • Edit: Customize the name, date, or other general settings of this meeting.
  • Delete: Remove permanently the meeting.
