How do I use Otter Assistant?

Setup is quick and easy. When you log into Otter.ai and see a popup introducing Otter Assistant and My Agenda, click Try for free to begin.

Next, Otter needs to sync your calendar events. On the right panel of your Home Feed, click Connect for each calendar app you use and sign in to allow Otter to access your calendar.

Connect Otter to Calendar

On the right panel of your Home Feed, if you have connected your Google or Microsoft Outlook calendar to Otter, you can see your upcoming meetings. From the calendar, you can directly join your meeting and also schedule Otter Assistant to join, and capture and share meeting notes with participants.

Home Feed and Calendar

Lastly, you can preset Otter Assistant to join all meetings automatically by default (and switch off Otter Assistant for specific meetings in Calendar as needed). You can change the default any time in Account Settings > Meetings for Otter Web or Home Feed > Settings (gear icon) for Otter iOS/Android.

Set up Otter Assistant to join meetings automatically

That's it. Now you are all set!

Sharing Notes with Meeting Participants

Otter Assistant is designed for collaborative note-taking by making sure everyone has access to the transcript.

If you’d like to record and transcribe a meeting without sharing, you can turn off Otter Assistant for that meeting on your calendar by switching the Otter Assistant toggle to off. You can then record the meeting with the Otter web app or mobile app.

You can also set your sharing preference for conversations recorded with the Otter web or mobile app by going to Account Settings > Meetings on web or My Agenda > Settings (gear icon) on iOS or Android.

FAQ

What will happen to my Otter Assistant recordings and transcripts afterward?
