The meetings dashboard is the default page when you log into your account, whether on the App, or via the WebPage. It is a priority based display, presenting items requiring immediate attention first. Its content varies depending on whether there is any interaction required, e.g. where you have no feedback requests outstanding, that particular panel will be missing from the dashboard (rather than appearing as an empty box).
On your first visit to your meetings dashboard, it is entirely likely that you will see just one panel – the one on the right. This panel is most commonly seen by people who have downloaded the app in order to provide feedback on a meeting, and then accessed the app outside of that meeting. It simply provides a link which explains how to get more out of the dashboard (should you so wish).
If the dashboard is accessed when their meeting is in progress, and if the meeting has been enabled for In-meeting feedback, the above panel will be replaced with something like the panel on the right.
Clicking the feedback button will immediately take the user to the pages where they can provide live meeting feedback, and see the results (if they have been shared).
Below this panel (if it is active) is the panel for providing feedback on past meetings where, for some reason, feedback opportunities were not taken at the time.
It lists such meetings up to three days old, and the list can be worked down remarkably quickly by clicking once on the relevant face for each meeting. It is restricted to three days because it assumes that feedback changes beyond three days may not always be helpful to the organiser.
Where future meetings have been loaded from the Inspirometer Outlook Add-in, these are displayed in the next panel (shown on the right). Meetings that are being hosted by the user, and which have feedback enabled, have an edit button beside them which enables the user to adjust the meeting time (even when it is underway) and add and delete attendees if required. This functionality means that meetings can be edited without losing any feedback to that point.
The data for individual past meetings, where they are the user’s own meetings, or where the feedback results have been shared with the user, are accessible via the report buttons in the ‘Feedback on Past Meetings’ panel.
Where feedback has been enabled, but the data has not been shared with the user, this is shown by a ‘Not Shared’ flag against the entry.
Below the past meetings panel, is a button to access the users overall meeting statistics in the form of donut charts.
Below that will appear the graphs and charts that help the user to track progress in their own meetings, and to see the key opportunities for improvement therein (shown on the right). These are currently in the process of being implemented and they include:
Trend charts of meeting effectiveness plotted over time so that improvement can be tracked.
Trend charts of key meeting statistics for different types of meetings so that patterns in the data can be seen more easily.
Wordclouds of prevalent comment terms, coloured according to the relevant emotion being expressed by the attendee.
