Rumpus can improve all your meetings. Shared cursors, annotations, and emoji reactions provide valuable feedback whenever you present. If multiple team members need to share, Rumpus saves precious time whenever you need to switch presenters. By inviting everyone to participate in the meeting, collaboration flows and teams grow stronger.


To help you make the most of your meetings, here are 10 moments to consider making a Rumpus.


1. Audio conference calls

Many teams still rely on audio calls for some, or all, of their meetings. Use Rumpus to share screens in tandem with your phone call to allow teams to see what everyone is talking about.

2. Status meetings

Rumpus removes interruptions and awkward transitions whenever someone new presents. For information sharing meeting with more than one presenter, all the shared content you need is right where you need it.

3. Design reviews

Shared cursors provide pointing and annotation capabilities to stakeholders who may not have access to the design team’s toolset. Use emoji reactions to exchange further feedback and reach consensus without disrupting the flow of the meeting.

4. Huddle room collaboration

Rumpus can even make face to face meetings more efficient. Stop swapping a video cable to share screens. Connect a laptop running Rumpus and have your team share their screens through Rumpus.

5. Scrum

How often do you find yourself needing to check working software against the design and acceptance criteria to ensure it’s complete? Rumpus lets you easily navigate across all the documents you need to get done.

6. General meetings

Two of the best tools for a successful meeting are an agenda and meeting notes. Your agenda, meeting notes, and even presentations are always accessible to everyone with no awkward interruptions.

7. Ideation/Brainstorming

Let’s say you're brainstorming in a shared document and you want to show an example of an idea to your colleagues. Rumpus lets you move back and forth between your ideation canvas and any explorations you require.

8. Problem solving and decision making

Complex problems need input from every member of a team. Rumpus invites everyone to contribute to the big picture. Critical decision factors and alternatives are present in the meeting and everyone is free to share their data points and have their say.

9. Personal projects

Collaboration is key to any group activity, whether we’re in the office, or at home. Try Rumpus with your fantasy leagues or use Rumpus for vacation planning with distant relatives.

10. Project reviews

Your budget, schedule, and requirements may live in different applications with different owners.  Any decision on how to move forward on a project must consider all three factors. Rumpus makes it easy for teams to trade constraints and consider impacts on quality.


Happy Rumpusing!
