If the meeting is scheduled in Google Calendar, the storage location and language will be determined according to the default language and default workspace in “Personal Settings - Meeting Settings”. If you use the Chrome application to invite, you can specify which workspace to store it in.

11. Why does SeaMeet Copilot still join the meeting even after I’ve turned off the auto-join feature?

First, please disconnect your Google Calendar in order to stop SeaMeet Copilot from synchronizing with your Google Calendar. Go to Account -> Integration to disconnect Google Calendar.

If after disconnecting, SeaMeet Copilot still joins the meeting, it is because the meeting was scheduled before the disconnection. In this case, you can manually remove the meeting from your meeting list. Go to Meeting List and find the future meetings with the turquoise background. Simply click on the trash can icon to delete the meeting.

12. As a registered user, can I invite the copilot back to the meeting if the copilot leaves the meeting?

Yes, you can invite the copilot back to the meeting. You can go to your meeting list and click on Start Recording to invite the copilot back to the meeting.

13. If I use an unregistered account, will the registered user be able to see the meeting records?

If the registered user has invited the copilot to the meeting, then the registered user will be able to see the meeting records. Moreover, if the registered user has scheduled the meeting in the meeting list, they can use the auto-share feature to share the meeting records with everyone that is invited to that meeting. Simply go to General -> Auto Share and choose All participants in calendar event. You can take a look at our tutorial for more information.

14. Will the registered user be able to receive the meeting transcription if they join a meeting scheduled by other users?

If the registered user invites the copilot to the meeting, then the registered user will be able to receive the meeting transcription. If the registered user has not invited the copilot to the meeting, then they will not be able to receive the meeting transcription. However, if the meeting owner has enabled the auto-share feature, the meeting transcription will be shared with everyone that is invited to the meeting.

15. Where can I see the email that I have set up for auto-sharing?

Go to Workspace -> General -> Auto Share. You can see the email that you have set up for auto-sharing in the Auto Share section.

16. Do I need to confirm the invitation email for the copilot to join the meeting?

No, as long as you have invited the copilot to the meeting, and you have enough base minutes left, the copilot will automatically join the meeting.

17. Do I have to use Google Calendar to invite the copilot to the meeting?

Not necessarily. SeaMeet provides multiple ways to invite the copilot to the meeting. You can find more information in our tutorial.

18. If a registered user hosts more than one meeting at the same time, will the copilot be able to join all the meetings?

No, only users with team plans can host multiple meetings at the same time. If you are using an individual plan, you can only host one meeting at a time. The number of available copilots depends on the number of paid licenses. That is, if there are two paid licenses, you can invite two copilots to join the meetings.

19. How long does a meeting stay in the meeting list? How can we know which meeting in the meeting list lasted the longest?

Currently, meetings do not have an expiration date. You can see the meeting duration of each meeting in the meeting list.

20. How much would I pay if I use more than the 50 hours of base minutes? Does the system notify the user when the base minutes are running out?

After you exceed the 50 hours of base minutes, you will be charged $1 per hour. You can always check the remaining base minutes and the minutes used at the bottom of your sidebar.

21. Will the copilot quit the recording if the base minutes run out?

Currently, there are only two situations that will cause the copilot to quit the recording. One is when a user with the free plan uses more than six hours in total, and the other is when a single meeting exceeds the limits of certain hours. For free plan users, the limit is one hour. For paid plan individual users, the limit is three hours, and for paid plan team users, the limit is five hours.

22. What if the language used in the meeting has more than one language. For example, a meeting in English and Chinese. How should I set the meeting language?

Although one can set the meeting language to Detect Language, we recommand users to set the meeting language to the primary language used in the meeting for optimal performance. One way to do deal with multiple languages is to set the meeting language to the primary language used in the meeting and switch to the other language mid-meeting when the conversation will be conducted in that language. The transcription will then have both the primary language and the other language.

23. Can I also record the video of the meeting?

No, SeaMeet currently only supports transcribing and recording the audio of the meeting. Video recording is not supported at the moment.

24. Can I download the meeting recording?

Yes, user with paid plans can download the meeting recording. Free plan user can only listen to the recording on the SeaMeet platform.

25. Can SeaMeet discern between different speakers in a physical meeting?

This feature is not yet available. However, it is expected to be provided in this quarter. Users can use one single resource of recording device to record a physical meeting and SeaMeet will identify the speakers based on the audio, and then user can then manually change the speaker in the transcription.
