Right before a video call, there are a few places that you need to navigate to - you'll need to open the meeting agenda and then visit your calendar to find the video call link.
It can be a bit of a pain, but Fellow can make this easier in 2 ways:
Browser Extension and MS Teams app
Install our browser extensions, MS Teams or Zoom apps to have the notes embedded in your video call. This means that all you'll have to think about is joining the video call and your notes will follow.
Join straight from Fellow
Fellow surfaces video call links from your calendar event descriptions and puts them directly on the meeting agenda. Meaning all you have to do is click the video conferencing button, which will open the video call in a new window.
This button will appear to the left of the "Send Notes" button before the meeting, so you don't have to worry about clicking on the wrong meeting link or missing it entirely.
If you are using GoogleMeet, the link will look like this:
And if you are using Zoom, then the button will look like this:
And if you use MS Teams, the button will look like this:
Once you have the video call open, all you'll need to do is rearrange and resize your windows so that you have Fellow and the video side-by-side or install our extensions through user settings >apps & integrations to have your video call and Fellow note appear in the same window.
In the notes header, you'll be able to see who else is viewing the note. (People who are not viewing the notes will be in black and white)
View meeting recordings
There are some occasions where you might record the video call in addition to taking meeting notes. In these cases, it can be frustrating if the notes and video recordings are kept in different places. Especially if this is for someone who missed a meeting and is scrambling to catch up.
Fellow makes this easy! When a meeting has been recorded via Google Meet, Zoom, or Microsoft Teams, these recordings will be accessible at the very top of the note.
If there is more than one recording, a transcript, or another attachment this button will look a bit different. Instead of showing the logo of the video conferencing tool you used, it will show a grey video image next to either Attachments or Recordings (depending on the scenario).
For example, this is how it looks with both a Google Meet recording and attachment.
