You, or any meeting participant, can create a discussion group to include all participants with one click, saving the effort of one-by-one invitations. In the meeting group, all participants can gain access to the meeting background, view event information and group announcements, jointly edit meeting notes, and record and share important information about the meeting. Once a meeting is over, the meeting initiator can convert the meeting group into a standard group chat, which is disassociated from the meeting event, so members can freely discuss more topics.
