The new Docket App for Zoom provides a meeting experience like none other by combining the power of Zoom video and collaborative Docket platform for a unique and focused meeting.

Busy teams use Docket for all stages of their meetings for greater collaboration, efficiency, productivity, and alignment.

BEFORE - Prepare for meetings in the Docket app through event creation, recommended templates, and sharing agendas and pre-reads so that you and your guests are ready for each meeting.

DURING - Launch your Docket app within your Zoom call so that you can collaborate, take notes, and create tasks, all while keeping focus and avoid the messy juggling of windows during your meeting.

AFTER - Docket helps you easily memorialize your meeting notes, actions, decisions, and takeaways, and Zoom transcription and recording together in one place so you and your guests can reference them any time and to make it simple to share to your favorite document storage or CRM solution.

Docket was named the winner of Zoom's 2020 "Whale Watch" App Marketplace Competition and is recognized by G2 as a leader in meeting management software.
