Transcripts and Short URLS

A few weeks ago, I pushed two changes to TodaysMeet: a transcript view and short URLs for rooms.

Transcript View

The transcript view is very much like the projector view (formerly called “read-only”) except for two important points.

  • The transcript view is chronological, so it’s easier to read in order, and
  • the transcript view does not update automatically.

To get to the transcript, look for the word “transcript” at the bottom of the Listen panel.

Short URLs

Every TodaysMeet room now has an automatic short URL associated with it, suitable for tweeting. These short URLs start with “today.io” and can be found at the bottom right of the Listen panel.

Thoughts?

If you’ve been using either of these new features, what do you think? What could be improved? If you haven’t, go try them out!
