Taking minutes can be a tedious task, but thanks to our Minutes Builder feature, it’s never been easier. Thanks to these improvements, it should be easier still. Boards can now:

  • Compile real-time meeting minutes and collaborate with others through simultaneous editing capabilities

  • Quickly add a note, create a motion, assign a task, or take attendance
  • Make in-line edits to a topic or description with ease

Messenger Feature updates

Messenger Document Support

These updates will bring a new level of collaboration to board meetings. No matter where you are, you’ll be able to share and receive attachments securely with your team. Customers can now:

  • Communicate and share documents between meetings with OnBoard’s Messenger Chat tool.
  • Anytime, anywhere access with board members’ mobile devices (iOS or Android apps)
  • Optimal security to ensure confidential documents aren’t shared with the wrong audiences
  • Drag and drop files into the message, or board members can select from their computers or OnBoard resources folders.

Messenger Document Support is included in the Premium and Ultimate packages for web and mobile.

User Profile and Director Visibility

User Profile and Director Visibility

Does your organization have privacy concerns? Since it’s 2022 and cybersecurity concerns are everywhere, it probable does. With this update, board administrators will be able to set privacy levels for their organizations’ directory and their teams’ profiles.

  • Administrators will have more control over the privacy settings for their organizations. For example, the directory can be set to administrators only, or all board members. The profile section can be set to admins and profile owner, all members, or groups.
  • In case there are privacy concerns, members’ contact information and demographic details can be hidden.
  • The entire directory can also be hidden from members, which will be valuable for organizations that are concerned with keeping their members’ information confidential.

Any administrator will be able to manage visibility options for their organization.
