How to use Ideas at your meetings and events

⭐️ Crowdsource your meeting agenda
To keep your meetings effective, you can crowdsource your agenda before the meeting starts. It allows you to focus on the key areas and on what your team currently needs.

⭐️ Brainstorm new ideas at your workshop
When solving a case study at your company training or workshop, you can brainstorm their ideas in order to find a solution for the presented problem. It helps you involve the whole group and collect more ideas in a short period of time.

⭐️ Collect team’s challenges
At your team meeting, you can collect the most burning issues or roadblocks your team is currently facing. Once you’ve captured all issues in one place, you can start working on solutions with your colleagues and keep track of the progress.
