Using Greenroom Notes

Within Greenroom, the notes tab allows you to create two different notes: a standard note and shot note. In this article, we'll give an overview of Greenroom notes and differentiate between a standard note and a show note.

Greenroom Notes Overview


Difference Between Standard Notes and Shot Notes

The "Notes" tab allows you to create two types of notes: a standard note and a shot note. 


With both of these types of notes, you can format the text by changing font size, font color, among other key formatting abilities. Additionally, both types of notes share the ability to be collaborative by inviting other Producers or Presenters to work simultaneously on them, much like Google Docs.

Pre-loaded in the Notes tab is a "Best Practices" note, which gives tips and tricks for how to best use Greenroom and prepare for live shows.

Standard Notes

A standard note allows the Greenroom user to generate a document-like note, that can be typed out or pasted in from another document.
In the top right corner, you have the ability to invite collaborators. Along the bottom of the note are easy-to-use formatting tools. Notes are often used to document important items that need to be shared and consolidated across Producers and Presenters, or house reminders to be referenced at a later time.
For both Presenters and Producers, all notes that they have created across multiple Greenrooms can be seen by navigating to their profile avatar and selecting "All Notes" in the drop down menu.

Shot Notes

As mentioned, shot notes, like standard notes, have the ability to be formatted and collaborative. What differentiates shot notes is that they specifically accompany each shot that exists within your Showboard. 
As you cut to each shot within the Showboard, the shots' respective shot notes jump to the top of the page. Shot notes allow you to host notes and talking points that are specific to each shot. Furthermore, with their talk track easily accompanying the shot they are on, Presenters are able to stay focused and on topic. No more using note cards or reading off of a word doc – the script is within the Greenroom attached to the shot that is currently live. (Note: these shot notes may also be copy and pasted from another document into Greenroom).
If you have a slide presentation within your shots, you can also access slide notes within that shot.  This gives the user the ability to host notes that correlate to each slide within their presentation deck.  As the user scrolls through the presentation deck, the slide notes will jump to the top of the page for whichever slide is being presented.
