Otter provides an easy way to save time and ensure everyone is aligned after a meeting through an automated meeting summary. Based on our Automated Summary feature, Otter will send you and your calendar guests a summary of the meeting to provide a quick overview of topics, meeting slides, and action items.
Meeting Summary Overview
When you record a meeting for a calendar event synced to Otter, you and all calendar guests will receive a Meeting Summary email within 2 hours after the meeting ends. For Otter to successfully send the email, the following guidelines must be met:
- The calendar event is synced to Otter on the Home page
- Enable auto-share to calendar event guest for the meeting
- Record the calendar event through web, mobile, or OtterPilot (recommended)
The email summary can vary depending on the meeting and may contain any of following
- General meeting info (dates, time, duration)
- Action items created during the meeting
- Automated Summary
- Automated Slides presented during the meeting
The Meeting Summary email provides a quick overview of any action items created during the meeting. Collaborators and calendar guests can easily review tasks, follow-ups, or actionable items that were assigned to the team in this section of the email. You can add action items from the email by clicking ‘Add action item’, which takes you directly to the transcript. Check out Overview of Takeaways to learn more about how you can interact with your Otter transcript to add action items as well as notes, highlights, and comments.
One of the exciting features of the Meeting Summary email is the summary section, which has been generated by Otter’s proprietary AI. This section allows all calendar guests to easily scan through the main highlights and topics of the meeting. The summary will reflect the Automated Summary shown in the Takeaways panel within the transcript. Click ‘Open in Otter’ or the timestamps to go directly to the transcript.
Automated Slide Capture
Images added to your conversations during the live recording through the Automated Slide Capture function using OtterPilot, will appear in your Meeting Summary email. Click on any of the images to go directly to the transcript to view.
Ensure Auto-share notes to calendar event guests is toggled on for both Manual Recording and OtterPilot. You can find those settings in Account Settings > Meetings. Enabling these settings will allow your calendar guests to receive the Meeting Summary email.
If you do not have auto-share on, you can manually toggle auto-share for each event that you want your calendar guests to receive the Meeting Summary.
- Navigate to the Home Page.
- Click on the calendar event on the right side that you want the Meeting Summary email to send to.
- Toggle on Share with calendar guests.
- Your calendar guests will receive the Meeting Summary email for that event.
By default, Meeting Summary is enabled for all accounts. You can change the notification settings in Account Settings > Notifications > Meeting Summary.
This setting will affect receiving the Meeting Summary email for both calendar events that you are the owner of, as well as calendar events where you are a guest, and the host has recorded the conversation in Otter.
