New Release: Better Outlook Performance, Requested Features, and Google Apps Beta - Less Meeting

Posted by | October 17, 2011 | Features Update | No Comments
We are very excited to announce that we are releasing a new version of LessMeeting today. This includes updates to both the Outlook plugin and the web app.Requested Features
Our users have always had great ideas and suggestions about ways to improve LessMeeting. Here are some of the ones we have included in this release:

The Dashboard has been simplified to focus on upcoming meetings and action items.

We’ve also updated the attendance list with two new features.

  • The attendance list now shows the organizer at the top followed by the rest of the attendees listed alphabetically
  • A new check all / uncheck all link on the attendance list, which makes it easier to manage meetings with a large number of attendees

International symbols and other languages now appear correctly in minutes emails too.

Last, we’ve added a new setting to the Daily Digest (available on the Settings page).  In addition to managing your own Daily Digest settings, you can now turn off Todo Reminders for attendees in your meetings.

As always, if you have any additional feature requests we’d be glad to hear about them!

Improved Performance for Outlook Plugin

We know that some of you have been experiencingperformance issues with Outlook, so today we’re releasing a new Outlook plugin that will run much faster. The new plugin should install automatically after a few days, or you can download it now here.

If you are still seeing performance issues, please let us know by emailing us.

Other Fixes

We’ve made a couple of small bug fixes for Firefox users and CC users:
  • Meeting note no longer loses cursor focus in Firefox 7.0
  • Small bugs related to meeting sync using cc@lessmeeting.com
Beta Testing for Google Apps Integration
We are working on Google Apps integration so that users that have Gmail can sync their calendars without including cc@lessmeeting.com in each meeting. If you are interested in this please let us know and we can discuss setting up the beta test.
