Resources to equip your conversations with IT
The browser extension improves Fellow usage by 3.6x and will set your team on the right track to building healthy meeting habits. By embedding directly into Google calendar, teammates can prepare for meetings and review Action Items in their typical workflow.
Fellow’s Desktop App provides the best in-meeting experience by ensuring Fellow notes open side-by-side all virtual meetings with Companion Mode. Making the desktop experience available to all Fellow users at your organization will ensure high adoption by 5.7x, and greater likelihood of teammates creating healthy meeting habits.
Fellow’s MS Teams integration will ensure teammates can use Fellow without ever leaving the app. Bring your notes into a convenient panel next to your video calls and eliminate the need to search for your agendas before the meeting.
Fellow IT resources designed to empower your business with a focus on security and data privacy at Fellow, your Fellow tool stack and the roll out of Fellow with a implementation and communication plan.
We know that solidifying a timeline is key to an effective roll out of any new tool. Our team has created these resources and provided a manageable timeline on how to get this information passed along to your team. These timelines are based on what we have seen to be the most impactful with teams who have previously been onboarded with Fellow:
Notifying your team of a new tool will help prime them for future communications regarding the implementation as well as set expectations on what's needed from them.
Get your IT team to help with connections and integrations of the tool stack used by the organization and mass deploy Fellows' Desktop App / Chrome extension.
