Do you do any followups on the answered questions from the meeting?

What do you do with unanswered questions? In the big meetings, we’ve started getting a lot of questions which we don’t manage to answer in the meeting but we don’t want them to go in vain. Do you have any tips?

Have you tried answering them in writing? That’s what we do, after each meeting, we take the questions left and answer them in a doc. Then we share it on Slack along with the slides and the recording from the meeting. Have worked well so far.

Hi both, 

We used to do what Dara is suggesting, after a while it was taking so much time! Don’t take me wrong, we want to address people’s questions, but we found another way how to save us some time ;)

Towards the end of the meeting we tell employees how much time we have left and that we take x number of questions. We also stress out that we will answer in writing those questions that have at least 5 likes. Something like, ‘Hey, we have 5 minutes left, we have time for 3 more questions so make sure you upvote the most relevant ones.’ It works nicely :)
