Spruce Q & A Meetings topics addressed below.
Meetings Powered by Spruce
Q: Is there a limit to how much material you can load onto each Meetings application?
A: We don’t have a cap on how much you can store in your media library or how many sections you can add. We want you to be able to upload as much information and create as many sections within the app as you want. However, I wouldn’t upload something as long as a feature length movie. It’s possible, but it would yield some sluggish and buggy results. Regardless, running out of space is not going to be a problem.
Q: Can you customize the thumbnails?
A: No, you cannot customize the thumbnails. But, we have had several people ask about that. The thumbnail automatically produces images of what you are uploading. Custom thumbnail images is something that we are definitely open to.
Q: If you’re in a meeting and someone doesn’t have Spruce, can you share materials from Spruce with non-Spruce users?
A: No, you have to share the passcode to that particular meeting. What we are finding out is that Spruce is not necessarily recommended for first-time meetings with clients or colleagues. It’s much more effective and far less intrusive if everybody takes the time to download the app before hand and establishes how they are going to use the interface and how it should be introduced to one another.
Q: Can you walk us through the interface? What would be the typical order and process in which I could present clean and organized information?
A: People can flip through the presentation however they want to. It’s a matter of how you would want to control your meeting. Spruce is designed in a way to maximize simplicity and meeting organization as well as improvisation. One of the huge perks of Spruce is the ability is has to allow you to take any of your meetings home with you. Until you set a meeting expiration date, you can access any past meeting on your personal device whenever you want to review the materials at your leisure.
Q: Can you copy any of the sections and reuse them for other meetings?
A: That’s a functionality that we are actually working on building right now. Being able to simply copy and paste sections and directories would be useful. Keep a look out for that soon.
Q: Could you use just the dashboard display to present content or would you have to use the app?
A: The dashboard is mainly for editing and maintaining your different meetings or directories. This can be accessed online at www.getspruceapps.com. I wouldn’t recommend presenting your materials through the dashboard. You could certainly get through a presentation that way, but it could be intrusive, especially if you’re managing multiple meetings and directories with private information that you do not wish to share with everyone you are presenting to.
