How it Works
Groove+ Home Page
Meetings will begin to appear 1 hour before your first meeting with a client. You will only see meetings show up that have been logged from your calendar (G-Cal or Outlook Calendar) to Salesforce either through calendar background sync or by manually logging the meeting back to Salesforce. Note this means that any meetings created within Salesforce and that are not in your calendar will not populate in Groove+.
You will notice the Meeting change from “Prepare” to “Update” after the meeting has completed
An hour before their meeting, users will receive a push notification alerting the user of the upcoming meeting and showing the event name
Opening the notification will open Groove+ to the upcoming meeting, where they can review account notes and insights
Within 5 minutes after their meeting ends, users will receive a push notification to update Salesforce fields and meeting notes via the Groove+ app
Opening the notification takes the user into the app to view their previous meetings - update fields, notes, etc.
