Setup Meeting Before Starting

In cases where you want to pre-set up a meeting before inviting participants you can start a meeting in draft mode. Draft mode is available for all meetings.

Draft mode is useful for:

  • Populating with tasks a planning poker session for the team to estimate.

  • Preparing a retrospective activity at your own pace.

To start a meeting in draft mode, you need to be on your Team O'clock dashboard and click the plus button on the meeting of interest.
