Covered in This Article:

How to Start a Meeting

  • Navigate to Meetings*

  • Click Start Meeting

  • Choose a team

  • Choose a Meeting Type

  • Click Begin

Within the meeting, a number of features are available to keep teams on track:

  • Total meeting length timer

  • Agenda section timer

  • Pause button

  • Move backward button — to go to the previous section

  • Move forward button — to go to the next section

Tip: You can click specific sections to jump directly to them.

To make navigation easier, another way to jump to a new section is by clicking a section name on the left — such as Rock Review*.

The facilitator utilizes the Ninety toolset during the meeting to:

  • Check-in with the team

  • Monitor and update KPIs*

  • Review progress on Rocks*

  • Read through the team's Headlines*

  • Adjust the To-Do List*

  • Raise, Discuss, and Resolve (RDR)* prioritized issues

  • Conclude

Example: within ROCK REVIEW*, the facilitator can filter, edit, search, make an Issue, archive, and more during the meeting. All the information saves automatically — the same way it would when editing/adding Rocks in the account normally.

Tip: During the Meeting, right-click on any item in DATA*, ROCK REVIEW*, TO-DO LIST*, or HEADLINES* to copy the information into an Issue to discuss during RDR*!

For more on this tool, check out the 90u Library.

How to Suspend a Meeting

To exit a meeting before it is completed, click the SUSPEND button. This will send you back to the Meetings* page.

When you're ready to re-enter the meeting, just click CONTINUE MEETING, and it will take you right back to where you left off. Clicking the Trashcan will delete your meeting.

How to Conclude a Meeting

The Conclude section will show a recap of all To-Dos* on your list and have NEW next to any created during that meeting.

Under Ratings, input what each person rates the meeting (1-10) or mark them absent. Then click Finish.

If you do not see all the people you expected to see under the Ratings section, be sure you added your people as users or that you assigned those users to the right team.
