This week, we’ve added a live dashboard (and redesigned the dashboard to fit our new theme). The live dashboard shows you who’s currently in a room, and updates live as people join and leave.
One of the most annoying things about trying to join an online meeting is finding it in the first place. That’s why we have permanent rooms at MeetSpace instead of magic links, invitations, or “add each person to the call” mechanics.
But, we know that sometimes when you show up on your dashboard, you’re not sure which room the meeting is in that day. In the real world, you can glance into the conference room through the glass and see who’s in there, and when you see friendly faces you can walk right in. To mimic that, we’re introducing the Live Dashboard.
The Live Dashboard shows the avatars of the people in the room so you know exactly which one everyone’s already in. When people join and leave the room, the dashboard updates instantaneously, so you don’t have to refresh the page.
To make the Live Dashboard work, we now support uploading an avatar from your profile settings page (click your name in the header). Avatar uploads are powered by shubox’s beta.
So go upload an avatar and enjoy the new dashboard!
