As we all hit the ground running in the first few weeks of 2012, you no doubt have a list of goals and milestones that you wish to achieve for your company and for yourself. This is the year when you will define clear goals, complete all projects, meet the deadlines, exceed expectations, work within set budgets, and more.
You’ll be at your best in 2012 which means increasing productivity and efficiency. We would love to think that the Mikogo software will help you in achieving your 2012 goals. Make the most from online meetings this year by saving yourself valuable time and money while increasing productivity. To help out we have a few Mikogo pointers for the new year.
For those of you who have only used Mikogo Version 4, you may be very used to accessing all Mikogo features from the software panel that floats on your desktop. However those who remember previous versions of Mikogo (e.g. Version 3) will know that features could be accessed by clicking on the icon in the taskbar’s system tray. If you are new to Mikogo or a long-time user, either way you will be interested to learn that the “old school” feature menu can still be accessed in Version 4 as shown in the image to the right. Read on below for more details.
Ever needed to participate in an online meeting but unable to get to your computer? Now you can with the newly released Mikogo mobile apps. There are two apps available, with the first being available for use on an iPhone or iPad (iOS app) while the second app is for use on Android phones and tablets.
The apps allow the user to join a Mikogo session from their mobile device and view the computer screen of the presenter in real-time.
Recently Version 4 of our second desktop sharing product, BeamYourScreen, was tested by Online Meeting Tools Review, a vendor-independent reviewer of web conferencing and webinar solutions. A total of 35 different software tools were included in the assessment and we are pleased to announce that our Version 4 software was ranked as the third highest web conferencing solution in the market, placing it above the likes of WebEx, Fuze Meeting and Teamviewer.
Now, while it was the BeamYourScreen product that was directly put to the test by Online Meeting Tools Review, the product and included features within BeamYourScreen Version 4 are identical to that of Mikogo Version 4. So we consider this a huge pat on the back for Mikogo as well!
In general, when you invite a participant to join a Mikogo session, you no doubt direct them to our Join Session page, get them to enter the session ID and join your session. However if you prefer, it is in fact possible for your participants to go straight to your own website and join from there. So how does this work?
We have created a way for you to integrate the session login form directly into your website. This is now available with Version 4.
