what are participant minutes?

Participant minutes is a popular unit to measure meeting usage. With 1 participant-minute, 1 participant can join a meeting for 1 minute. It is calculated for each meeting separately as follows:

number of participants x duration of meeting in minutes

This is the calculation that almost all API providers use. But Clan Meeting is determined to pass on as much savings to you as we can.

Introducing - dynamic participant minutes.

Example: In a 3 participant call of 30 minutes, if one participant joined after 20 minutes.

Participant minutes

= 3 (participants) x 30 (total duration in minutes)

= 90

Dynamic participant minutes

= 30 (minutes spent by participant 1) + 30 (minutes spent by participant 2) + 10 (minutes spent by participant 3) 

= 70

what are meeting minutes?

Meeting minutes is simply the duration of a meeting in minutes.
