Hi Deborah,
A lot more friends want to join these meetings. Can these meetings not be sent out as proper zoom notifications that can be automatically added to iCal or Google Calendar? Can the meetings be recorded for the people who could not join?

Thank you,

Dear Yogesh,

Thank you very much for your feedback and much more for your interest!

Reclone meetings are normally recorded and published on the reclone YouTube Channel here. We did not record yesterday’s meeting because it was not a talk, hece the meeting notes above.

We also have calendar invites but will need to add your email and that of your colleagues to it. Please email Deborah and provide all the email addresses you will like to be added to the calendar. If you also have a more efficient suggestion, please let me know.

The link on the meeting fliers also has contains the zoom link meeting where meeting is happening. Please check it out.

Hope these help.
