Can you email me you slides? Is this the latest version of your deck? Does anyone remember what Jess said about that slide with the green chart?
Sharing presentations between your team raises all sorts of questions. Sharing documents outside your team is even trickier. Expand that to people you may not even know personally, such as those you present to at a conference, and it’s somewhere between really complicated and impossible.
We wanted to rethink the way all this works and help you share presentations simply and securely. We wanted to make sure you’re also on top of who has access to your content and we wanted to let you keep the conversation about your content flowing.
So, how do we do this?
With Zeetings, you drop the static presentations that get lost in email threads and go out-of-date as soon as they’re sent and replace them with interactive virtual environments that house your presentation materials and the question and comments everyone makes. Each presentation is, unsurprisingly, called a “zeeting”.
What happens next is the bit we really wanted to tell you about. Once you’ve created a zeeting, people can start following it. This works in a similar way to following someone on social media but instead of following a person, you follow a presentation. Followers get updates you make to your content and any new questions and comments that are posted in Activity.
To let people that attend your broadcasts start following your zeeting, just check the box that says “Participants can follow my zeeting” on the purple broadcast screen before you hit “Start Broadcasting”. During the broadcast, participants will see a button that says “Get a copy”; by clicking it, they can start following your zeeting.
When you share a zeeting, people you share with can automatically start following it.
A quick word on security. To follow a zeeting, your followers will need a Zeetings account. For private zeetings, this means all followers are easily identifiable – you can check them out on the green Share screen. Also, whilst followers are able to access you zeeting, they are not able to download your content.
Security has been our number one priority in designing how following works. As a presenter, you are in complete control over who can follow your zeetings and you are able to revoke that access from a follower at any time.
So next time someone asks for your presentation, forget sending it out and losing track of where it goes – just send them your share link and tell them to get on board and start following. You just may start a movement:
