How to Effectively Manage LegalMeetings In Your Program

How should we effectively manage LegalMeetings in our program?

Citrix GoToMeeting is set up so that every person gets their own account. Unfortunately, most legal aid programs cannot afford that and will only get one or two accounts initially. (We suspect this will change over time when people see the value.)

As such, we have to do some creative work-arounds to make the Citrix technology "share-able" with many staff members.

When Do I Use GoToMeeting versus GoToWebinar?

What is the Difference Between GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar?

Both products are excellent, but they serve different purposes. There are three considerations that would determine which one you should use:

1. How many people will attend your meeting? GoToMeeting only supports 26 people (including you) to attend. If you think you might have more than 26 folks, you'll need to use GoToWebinar, which supports up to 1000 participants. (No, that is not a typo.) :)

XML is a tool that allows these different data systems to communicate with each other.

"It's come to the point where nonprofit staff who aren't using RSS aren't really doing all of their job.

I know, I know — you don't believe me, and you don't care."
