Urgency report in Remeet
April 24, 2021
One of the unique features of Remeet is that users don’t have to select exact time for their meetings. They rely on the scheduler to find the most optimal schedule for the entire team.
However, some meets are more urgent than others and Remeet allows people to increase the urgency for meets that can’t wait.
What we recommend is to define some internal guidelines on when something is urgent. Without people using urgency setting consistently, there’s a risk that the number of urgent meets will increase over time and that will make other meets suffer. Here’s our recommendation:
- Very Urgent - you are blocked and that has a significant impact on the business
- Urgent - you are blocked, but there’s no significant impact on the business and you can do some less important tasks in the meanwhile.
- Normal - default for most on-demand discussions. To have it scheduled sooner, make it shorter and with fewer people.
- Low - default for most recurring meets. This is important as this will make people less reliant on recurring meetings and schedule on-demand meets when questions/problems arise.
- Lowest - default for all the casual/informal discussions. E.g. 1-1s between peers.
To help teams following their own guidelines we are introducing an Urgency Report:
This report shows:
- A breakdown of all meets by urgency. Both by meet count and by sum of meet durations.
- A breakdown by users. You can see who tends to schedule urgent meets more often.
- Urgency change over time, so you can track how prioritization improves over time.
You can generate the report by clicking on your user avatar and then

We hope that this report will be a useful addition to other Remeet reports:
