Topics for discussion
We tried holding the meeting in a Collaborate session. The general consensus was that although the GUI is better in Collaborate, the audio was not so good as in Teams, with occasional echos and drop-outs.
It was agreed this was best left until such time as we could meet face to face again.
Most people liked the ability to see absences in their calendars. However, there are considerable privacy issues which will need to be addressed.
George brought the meeting's attention to the document on website cookies recently circulated by the DPO. All to read and digest for future discussion.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday 15th April 2020 online at 10am.
