Bluescape Meeting Improvements :woman_technologist: (Web and Wall)

Call it a gift from Cupid, here to give you even more meeting features to love!

You can now host or join ad hoc meetings and scheduled meetings in Bluescape with a single click. Schedule meetings using our Outlook plugin, copy meeting information from My Bluescape or directly from a workspace, and share with your desired participants. Ad hoc or scheduled, Bluescape meetings have you covered.

Every meeting now contains an automatically generated meeting workspace for participants to collaborate and share content. This meeting workspace is accessible through our new tabbed meeting style. Switch between the Bluescape Meeting tab or the Meeting Workspace tab to increase collaboration and productivity.

Don’t worry about anyone feeling left out of a meeting! Bluescape users and visitors can join meetings with respect to their permission settings.

Additionally, we’ve added a speaker view so you can see who is talking at any moment in the meeting. We’ve also introduced a voice focus setting to minimize the amount of background noise you hear when participants’ mics are on. This feature is toggled ON by default.

Notable Bug Fixes & Improvements

Group Select Objects in a Canvas

Last release, users experienced issues group-selecting objects in a canvas. When you’d group select objects in a canvas, the canvas was automatically selected along with the intended objects. This was not the desired behavior.

:bug: Bug Fix: We’ve resolved this issue from the previous release, and now only the intended objects are selected.
