TO SAY THAT times have changed since the past few months would be quite an understatement. Not too long ago, a typical writer or a publisher followed an established procedure of meeting the interviewees, preparing a draft, submitting the same for a review, seeking approval, and then finally publishing the piece. The entirety of this process would take a minimum of 3-5 days. What seemed like a relatively long cycle is now expected to happen in an instant. Fast-forward a few months to today, the same writers swiftly get over a Zoom call, connect to their customers, and immediately submit the draft right after the call. The piece would then get published overnight, and what used to be a long process is now compressed to less than a day.
My own work keeps me on my toes, thanks to the digital movement accelerating at a rapid pace. The world is moving with an unreasonable speed, and the digital business is soaring today. One such application that has been off-the-charts with respect to its usage and availability is Zoom. Having been an ardent user of Zoom myself, especially in the past few months, where I was required to attend at least 2-3 Zoom meetings a day, it’s suffice to say that discovering the Zoom App Marketplace has been an added bonus to my work. It has integrations with several other applications, which have made my work considerably easy for me.
However draining long working hours can get from staying in the same place all day at home, I have found solace in the fact that several Zoom App Marketplace applications help with my productivity. With these apps, my job becomes a little bit more smooth-sailing. My long work-related meetings and conferences are not as challenging as they seem, and have turned out to be quick and efficient instead! So, grab onto your working attire and let’s take a detour to tread along the productivity-boosting application lane together.
- Docket — For agenda creation
Most of my mornings start with Zoom meetings.
If a meeting has no agenda, it gets hard to focus on a particular discussion and keep track of what’s happening.
Docket helps me collaborate with my colleagues to create an agenda, prioritize the list items and also distribute the same. The application also has a task manager to keep track of the action items! Its integrations improve team performance and make meetings more fun in general.
- Marsview Notes — Meeting Assistant
Meetings usually seem long and taxing because of the several parallel discussions and action items to address.
However, Marsview Notes captures the whole meeting and transcribes the notes without missing a beat! It allows me to highlight the key-points, analyze conversations, summarize the meeting minutes, and also delivers comprehensive, easy-to-understand notes to my email.
I really just have to attend the meeting. Marsview takes care of everything else for me.
- Zapier — Automating workflow
Being a multi-tasking employee is not easy.
Zapier automatically connects every app that I use with Zoom and triggers an action to automate my workflow. As I focus on my work, this application completes my background work for me without having to repetitively multi-task.
- Evernote — Organizing Notes
Evernote syncs and organizes all the available notes, creates templates for the same, helps build to-do lists and store media. The entire information on Evernote can be easily, directly accessed and updated through the Zoom chat.
- Smokeball — Supercharging Law
If you’re a law practitioner, this one is specifically for you. It can be challenging for remote law firms to manage time and meetings with their clients consistently throughout the day.
Zoom Integration with Smokeball helps your law firm track your time, automate and document your client meetings in the most efficient way possible.
- Redbooth — Team Management
I work with a team that has to constantly manage several tasks at once. As this happens, it becomes hard to keep track of what my teammates are doing and understand the status of the projects that I’m working on.
Redbooth helps me stay up to date with my team’s progress and gives me a heads-up on every recent activity and notification.
- Memory— Time Tracking
Last but not the least, the most effective way to maximize your productivity through Zoom meetings is by keeping tabs on how much time you spend on all your applications.
Memory, an AI-powered time tracking app, creates a literal digital memory of all your work and builds a private timeline.
So here are your magic tools to make the most of every meeting you attend. You have the absolute power to accelerate your work from home.
