We’ve all been in those meetings when we wonder just how much time people contribute to the discussion, particularly those who “monopolize” the meeting. Now you can easily find out using the Meeting Monopolizer Monitor App!
Here’s how it works - just add a timer for each person in the meeting. This is as easy as typing each person’s first name. When the meeting starts with someone speaking, just tap that person’s timer to start the timer and the meeting. As different people take turns speaking, just tap their timer. This causes the last running timer to pause while simultaneously starting the tapped timer. Tapping a running timer pauses that timer as well as the meeting.
When the meeting is finished, tap the “End Meeting” button to generate a report showing the total amount of time contributed by each participant as well as the percent of the total discussion time each person took. A nice pie chart helps visualize just how much each person contributes.
Meeting Monopolizer Monitor currently supports up to 18 timers. These are quickly accessible, and if you find that your most active participants are spread out on the screen, just shake the app and watch the timers “magically” shuffle themselves into order based on the timers - the most active people rise to the top!
Despite the witty name of this app, it actually can be used for anything that requires quick and easy access to multiple timers. Perhaps you might find it useful in timing a relay race, a debate, or a science experiment! You also are not limited to meetings - take this app with you when you hang out with your friends to see who is the chattiest among you!
NOTE - this app does have a small ad banner at the bottom, BUT if this bothers you, you can turn off the ads completely by going to this app's settings.
