Definitely a big inspiration for us! Thanks:)
Great point, well articulated. Our product does not officially support Exchange (mostly due to dev bandwidth limitation :( ) BUT if you can subscribe to your Exchange calendar in a Google Calendar (linked to any Google Account) then you can try Hera without any frictions because Hera will be able to pull your meetings from the Exchange calendar.
I've seen resources for that: https://www.howtogeek.com/435975/how-to-show-an-outlook-cale....
Let me know or shoot me an e-mail at bruno at hera dot so if you need any help!
I agree with your analysis, but I think there is significant impact on features you can build on top of "store files locally", including collaborative features (sharing meeting notes without too much frictions) On a personal note, I prefer the locally stored path as well.
To name a few: - Tight integration between your calendar and the context (notes, actions) related. The notes you take are automatically linked to this calendar event, the attendees, potential past related meetings
- The notes you take in Hera can feed into other tools, for instance Todoist for your next actions.
- Fewer friction points: you click on one button and it opens your Zoom/GMeet/... and your notes where you find back your preparation. Spinning a new page in Notion is not that hard, but you would be surprised by what small friction points do over time.
Your meeting notes are linked together if they are linked to the same "group of meetings" (that we call Streams). So that when you enter your "Weekly Product", Hera gives you a quick access to the outcomes (highlights, next actions) of the previous Weekly Product(s) meetings
Also, Hera tries to understand (nothing fancy or machine learning-related) what you do with your meetings. If you always use the same template of notes in meetings with a title "1o1 John - Bruno", Hera will suggest you to do it for you in the future.
I've logged your feedback, thanks!
- On calendar's data: we only use the title, description, etc. of the calendars you have chosen to sync in Hera. - On google drive files, I will clarify this right now, but basically we have an export feature to google docs, which is entirely opt-in. If you want to use the feature, the first time of course you need to give us access to a small subset of your GDrive
Great remark. The recurring fee is mainly tied to the fact that the value you get from Hera should grow over time.
The more meeting notes you write into Hera, the more connected all your meetings will be and the more context Hera will be able to provide you in each meeting.
It's not like a one-time tool that you always use to do the same thing. I am not saying that we won't test one-time price at some point, but it's not in our short-term plans.
Good question, mainly two points: 1. We had deep expertise in Electron and web dev. We are 4 months old so we wanted to validate the problem AND our solution as quickly as possible.
2. Meetings, by essence, have many stakeholders. Some (if not most) of the attendees are not on Hera and this is where having our core product mostly web compatible will proved to be useful - we can easily spin up for instance a public page to share the outcomes of your meeting to people not using hera
Totally get that the safety of your meeting notes is top priority. We have not yet settled on whether we want to choose the "notes stored locally" path or the "fully encrypted on our server" path, mainly because of the impact on features we want to build in the upcoming years.
We will communicate publicly as soon as we take a strong stance.
No problem, thanks for taking the time to comment :)
You're the second to suggest that, we are implementing the change on the home page as we speak, thanks :)
Thanks for the comment, it would indeed probably clarify the shortcuts!
Yes, Fellow is one of the first company to build a meeting-centric solution! Few significant differences: - Hera is very single-player, our product is built around making YOU more productive with your meetings - There is a strong focus on automation. Let's say you use a template for one occurence of a weekly meeting, Hera will suggest you to create a rule to do that automatically for all the future occurrences. - A other point, that might seem trivial but is definitely not: Hera is FAST, and entirely usable with the keyboard. We believe it's actually key to be able to use such product DURING a meeting, when your mental bandwidth is dedicated to the ongoing discussion
Understood, right now your meeting notes are not encrypted, but stored in a secure database on our server. We are currently considering two options to make sure your notes are safe: either end-to-end encryption on our servers or offline-based storage for your notes.
Thanks for the remark
Thanks for the kind words! Looking forward to seeing you on Hera!:)
No, it's not: You can see Hera as a note-taking app entirely dedicated to meetings. It's easy to take notes in meetings, capture highlights or next actions that you can then either export to other tools or easily access in your future meetings.
touché, our french origin is exposed :) We've had this feedback before, I am going to change that, thanks for the suggestion!
