Some of you may have noticed a few changes in Meet-O-Matic, and that’s because
we have now launched version 4.1. It doesn’t sound like much, but we’ve been doing
a lot of spring cleaning, and there area whole new set of features and changes
that we’d like to share.
First and foremost, we’ve completely reworked the whole front end for people
responding to invites, to make the experience better, especially for those
using devices with smaller screens. We have a lot more ideas to make the experience
still better for everyone, and these will be coming very soon.
Along with many sites, we used to use Google Analytics and other tools, partly to
help improve what worked for our customers, and partly to monitor for issues, such
as denial-of-services attacks. However, now we are aligned with Turalt,
we wanted to pur privacy first-and-foremost, so we have now entirely dropped all
third-party cookies and tracking. We do still use a private monitoring system, but
as of now, every single piece of data from the site is now controlled entirely
by us, and this is our new policy going forwards.
Again, there will be more coming soon to help with privacy. In particular, in a few
months we will start to use accounts more, even for free users. This will make it
easier for you to manage your own data, even if you are using our free service.
Improved email notifications
The email notifications are continuing to get better. We’ve been using a transactional
email service to improve deliverability and appearance for our messages. We still
get occasional issues with emails going astray, both for people organizing meetings
and responding to them.
First, in the Settings page, you can now set alternate email addresses. If you
are organizing a meeting, all notifications get CC’ed to these addresses. Handy if you
need to keep someone in the loop, as well as to
But this is just the start. Very soon, we’ll be notifying organizers of email bounces
and contact updates, directly through the meeting pages.
Thank you for sticking with us. We want to make
Meet-O-Matic better for everyone, while still preserving the vision that
Marc and I had when we started on this journey.
