Corporate formalities/requirements (ex.minutes) in Glassfrog?

Hello all,

I've recently started getting familiar with GlassFrog and think I've got the jist of it but still not 100%.

Does anybody know if GlassFrog can pretty much help with most (if not all) corporate requirements such as minutes (since Glassfrog is a tool to help with governance)

One of the biggest ways for a lawyer to try to "pierce the corporate veil" is to prove that a corporation/LLC has failed to follow corporate formalities so was thinking that not only would GlassFrog help in using Holacracy, but a 2nd benefit as an online tool for corporate requirements.

Thanks in advance,

Cyrus

In our organization we use the Glassfrog meeting outputs as meeting minutes and we do not take any secondary minutes. The only thing that might be missing is meeting attendance. Otherwise I believe that meets the legal requirement, we use our shared google calendar for attendance documentation.

Thank you Jenn.  Much appreciated. 

So just to confirm, let's say me and you were in a circle and you were the lead link and I as the secretary.  As of right now, there is no way for us to indicate on GlassFrog that we both attended a meeting?  Thus, the reason for implementing a shared Google calendar?

Thanks again!

Yes, we use the google calendar to announce meetings, solicit rsvps, and because people mark yes/no for attendance it meets the legal requirement of knowing who is at which meetings.

Anyone can log in to Glassfrog during a meeting by clicking "Join Meeting" but the glassfrog history doesn't show who signed into the meeting. I will say the glassfrog team is always open to feature requests and you could request that. 

Good luck!
