Cool Tool Review – GoTo MeetingBy
I am working on a project for a local government client right now and needed to confer with the database programmer. He wanted to be able to show me what he was doing and why for each of the database fields and some other things going on the background. We used a tool called GoToMeeting and I was able to see what was on the programmer’s screen while he was working on it.
I logged in, did a short registration and download process, the programmer gave me a session ID and within minutes we were doing collaborative work even though our offices are about 60 miles apart.Â We could have used the GoTo Meeting chat, but chose to use Skype for the dialog instead.Â It was just easier to talk things through.
I was viewing his screen real time and I could actually “control” the mouse and point out different things on his screen. I was able to suggest changes and see the results immediately.Â
We could have had up to 10 people in our meeting – think of the potential! This tool would be very useful for a sales presentation, brainstorming sessions and other online collaborations.
PS – Yes, the links in this review are affiliate links, but this is a tool I use and I highly recommend. It comes with a free trial and is very reasonably priced (less than $50 per month).
