Browser Extension Stops Users From Scheduling Useless Meetings
Work

A simple tool could boost productivity by questioning whether every group invite is really necessary

In just about every office, there’s a colleague that sends out a few too many meeting invites. Meetings Kill Creativity is a browser extension that asks users to reconsider the usefulness of a huddle whenever they try to schedule one, with tongue-in-cheek prompts like, “You’re about to make a bunch of people a little sadder. You sure?”

As simple as it seems, it can have an impact on work-life balance and productivity. Harvard Business Review reported that 65% of senior managers say that meetings prevent them from completing tasks. Meetings also have a negative effect on the overall satisfaction of employees.

The free plug-in was built by Moo, a company that makes business cards.
