Hello Product Hunt community - @dylansather and I are so excited for our first launch! We built Should It Be a Meeting with a straightforward (and fairly obvious) goal in mind - to help you spend less time in unproductive meetings at work. We've been fortunate to work at both small and large companies, and we've experienced first-hand how a meetings-heavy culture can crush a team's productivity and morale. We hope our tool is equal parts fun and useful, with just a hint of snark. ๐Ÿ˜œ Enjoy using it - feel free to share with your colleagues at work, and we'd love any feedback you have! ๐Ÿ™

@dylansather @droosevelt Love this... needs to be a Slack integration maybe through Slackbot. It could pop up whenever you type the word "schedule" into a thread ๐Ÿคฃ

GUT REACTION : ๐Ÿ˜ Let me expand on that thought. BRAND : ๐Ÿutifully simple, MVP decision tree tool by @ratethatmeeting PROBLEM : 3 months avg of wasted time per year on unnecessary meetings SOLUTION : 30 second normalized survey MARKET : Enterprise interest in Productivity Apps are down ~2.5% this quarter, but up ~10% since last Spring [source : http://bit.ly/2FyFTlf ] COMPETITION : COOs worldwide, would be sweating for their jobs being automated, but this just helps communicate & take anything personal out of shooting down waste of time workplace gatherings. TEAM : @droosevelt @dylansather TRACTION : 151 claps on Medium [ http://bit.ly/2w3HYGz ]- not bad PRICING : FREE! Rate That Meeting is $10/mo for teams CONCLUSIONS : Yes. More of this. Surveys can be surprisingly powerful. You'll see, you'll aaall see.

Haha, cool tool! How did you create the quiz? Or with which software? I'm looking into creating something like this as well and am looking at solutions.

@poehah this was custom-built using React (we <3 React) and React Router (https://github.com/ReactTraining/react-router) to control the flow between pages. Happy to go into more detail if you need!
Hayden Evans
It should just link to a static page that says "No".
