If the context of your email doesn’t suggest that you will be meeting in-person, Clara will schedule a call by default. Calls are categorized as either direct calls (1-on-1) or group calls (2 or more guests).
Default Meeting Methods
While setting up your virtual meeting preferences, you have the option to set a Direct default and a Group default. If a standard codeword isn’t used and the context doesn’t suggest otherwise, Clara will schedule the call via these defaults.
If you’d like to use a meeting method other than the default, you can indicate this to Clara in your email:
“CCing Clara to help get a Skype call on the calendar.”
“We can use my Uberconference line!”
“Let’s hop on a quick phone call to discuss.”
If your participant asks to use a virtual meeting method other than your default, Clara may ask for your permission before proceeding.
