Why we built it
After a rather lengthy meeting with a large number of people, I was grabbing a coffee with one of our client stakeholders who asked “I wonder how much that meeting just cost us?” So I built this App as a bit of fun, but also to show how meetings that lack structure can be a huge drain on organisational time (and money).
How we built it
The App was built in the Power Platform, using the mobile layout. It’s some data fields and a calculation, nothing you couldn’t do in Excel – but this is far more useable and has a far better user experience!
Use this screen to calculate (roughly) the cost of meetings, especially recurring meetings. Set the sliders to the values you require and the cost is calculated. Select a recurrence value if required.
Use this screen to help focus you on the costs being incurred “live” during a meeting. Open the screen at the start of the meeting and hit “start” – watch the costs ramp up!
Note: Figures are approximations and should not be used for anything other than informational purposes.
