Client manages many critical recurring meetings that have frequently-changing attendees and topics. These meetings recur throughout the year and often require moving attendees and topics from one meeting to another. The meetings also require frequent rescheduling.
Available calendar tools handle meeting scheduling just fine but they don't help with moving topics and attendees at all. Also, the usual calendar-style displays don't present the meetings in a helpful manner.
Clear Data Incorporated created an Excel/VBA tool (called Meeter) that separates the detail management from the meeting presentation. The user manages topic and attendee details in forms without regard to the presentation of the meetings. This makes it easy to focus on the details and move them from one meeting to another with out having to navigate a calendar to get to each meeting.
Meeter presents the meetings with their details in an easy-to-view, color-coded stream that updates automatically as the user changes the details.
