Help your meeting guests prepare for a meeting by using the new Read Status in the information panel of each meeting to detect meeting readiness and determine next steps. 

Where To Find It

  1. Click on any of your Docket meetings in the left meeting panel to display the meeting on the right in your meeting workspace.
  2. Click the (i) in the meeting header, just to the right of the meeting title. This will open the meeting information panel.
  3. In the information panel, view the guest list. You may have to scroll down to see it if there are a lot of meeting details. 
  4. To the right of each meeting guest, you can see the agenda and recap read status.

How It Works

Read Status for Agendas

A read status for an agenda indicates the guest viewed the meeting agenda.

When will an agenda read status change?

  • The meeting has not started yet.
  • The guest has accessed the Docket agenda through either the shared email or directly in Docket prior to the meeting start time.
  • The guest has re-reviewed the meeting agenda through either the shared email or re-returned to the meeting in Docket which will reflect the most recent view if prior to the meeting start time.
  • After the meeting starts, the read status is frozen and will no longer change from the most recent view prior to the start of the meeting.

Examples: 

  • Dustin is invited to a meeting and hasn't viewed the meeting yet. The agenda read status will show as --. 
  • Dustin is sent a shared agenda and viewed it in email prior to the meeting start time. The agenda read status will register that he reviewed the agenda.
  • Dustin views the agenda directly in Docket prior to the meeting start time. The agenda read status will register that he reviewed the agenda.
  • Dustin reviews the agenda in email or directly in Docket after the meeting start time. The agenda read status will show the time of the most recent view prior to the meeting start time or -- if not read at all.

Read Status for Recaps

A read status for a recap indicates the guest viewed the meeting recap.

When will a recap read status change?

  • The meeting time block is over. 
  • The guest has left the Docket session. 
  • The guest has accessed the Docket recap through either the shared email or returned to the meeting in Docket.
  • The guest has re-reviewed the meeting recap through either the shared email or re-returned to the meeting in Docket which will reflect the most recent view.

Examples: 

  • John is attending and viewing a Docket meeting that is still in progress. The recap read status will show as --. 
  • John continues to view the Docket meeting that is now no longer in progress. He has not left or changed his Docket session. The recap read status will show as --.
  • John leaves the meeting session and returns to the meeting in Docket to view the recap directly. The recap read status will register that he reviewed the recap.
  • John is sent a shared recap after the scheduled meeting time has ended and viewed it in email. The recap read status will register that he reviewed the recap.
  • John re-reviews the recap in email or directly in Docket after the scheduled meeting time has ended. The recap read status will show the time of the most recent view.

Best Practices for Read Status Use

If guests have not read an agenda prior to a meeting you may consider:

  • Encouraging guests to pre-read the agenda by sharing (or re-sharing) the agenda. Perhaps they get so many notifications, they did not see it or forgot about it.  
  • Shifting a meeting to provide additional time. If a majority are not prepared for the meeting, consider shifting it to another day or time to give guests a chance to prepare.
