Have you ever found yourself drowning in a sea of back-to-back meetings and projects, with your calendar packed to the brim, leaving barely any room to catch your breath, let alone tackle your growing to-do list? And don’t even get me started on those meetings where you find yourself nodding along, trying to appear engaged, but secretly questioning, "Why am I even here?"

With Scoop’s Meeting Workflows, you can regain control of your schedule and ensure you attend the meetings with the highest value. 

Ensure every meeting has a clear purpose

Knowing what the meeting's all about ahead of time can make a real difference. When you've got a clear agenda or prep materials, it's like having a roadmap. You can quickly determine if joining is needed or if your time could be better spent elsewhere.

With Scoop’s Meeting Workflows, all your meeting details are seamlessly integrated into timely notifications that give you access to agendas or docs in one click. If crucial prep is missing, attendees can anonymously request the organizer to fill in the gaps with the Ask for Agenda button in the 24-hour notification. 

Skip unproductive meetings

If a meeting seems unnecessary, you can use Scoop to propose skipping discreetly. Simply select Propose Skip from your 24-hour or 15-minute notification, then choose whether to send this suggestion anonymously. You can also add a note to let others know the reason for your suggestion. Scoop will then pose the question in the meeting channel for attendees to vote on whether to skip or keep the meeting anonymous.

If the overall feedback is to skip, the meeting owner can decide whether to reschedule from their Google Calendar or cancel directly and free up some time in everyone’s day.

Spend your time on the most valuable meetings

With Scoop, you can take control of your schedule and make smarter decisions about how to spend your time. Request the necessary meeting prep to ensure each meeting has a clear purpose, and if you’re still questioning whether your next meeting is necessary, suggest skipping it altogether.
