Detailed instruction how to schedule and access the adhoc meetings

Updated over a week ago

Employees can schedule ad-hoc meetings outside of the recurring schedule. For instance, if an employee needs to meet with their manager next week for an important discussion. A calendar event invite will be sent to both parties.

As an employee you have several key functions:

  • Once the invitation is sent, you can collaborate on the meeting agenda by taking an active role in structuring the conversation.

  • Create talking points or load them from the 1:1 template.

  • Use shared notes and add comments.

  • Reschedule the meeting.

  • Cancel or delete it if you are an organizer.

⚠️ Before scheduling the meeting, ensure the relationship between the organizer and participant is set. How to set the relation you can read here.

Scheduling the adhoc meeting

1. Employees can schedule ad hoc meetings under the Me tab -> 1:1s -> + New or using the Quick add button.

2. In the pop-up window, select the employee for the meeting. If the relation is already set, the system will prompt to proceed to the upcoming meeting or schedule an ad hoc meeting.
