What is an all-hands video?
An all-hands video is a recorded message you share with your entire team as a standup or company-wide update. If your all-hands is asynchronous, participants can record and share their updates using Tella. Rather than a live meeting, team members can watch each other's updates and respond on their own time.
How to make an all-hands video:
Step 1: Record
Log in or sign up for Tella. It takes two clicks to get inside. Once inside, open the screen recorder and pick the screen and camera you want to share. Press “Start recording.” Record your all-hands message. If you need to make any changes, it’s easy. You can make as many clips as you need.
Step 2: Customise
Once you’ve made your all-hands recording, use Tella’s editor to trim and rearrange clips. You can also select custom backgrounds or apply different layouts as well.
Step 3: Share or Download
When you’re all-hands video is complete, click “Finish.” You’ll be redirected to Tella’s share page, where you can watch the video in full. To share it with your team, use a unique link or download it as an MP4 file.
How long is an all-hands meeting?
An all-hands meeting usually lasts between 10 and 20 minutes. Anything longer and it gets too cumbersome. If done asynchronously, you can record your all-hands meeting and share it with your team afterward. If done this way, keep your update to 2 to 4 minutes so you don’t lose anyone’s attention.
What is the point of an all-hands meeting?
All-hands meetings get everyone on the same page and share quick updates between teams. Rather than lengthy updates on matters that are relevant to only a few members, all-hands meetings are great for connecting team members and building camaraderie, especially if the team is remote.
How do I make all-hands more efficient?
To make all-hands meetings more efficient, teams should record their messages on their own time using Tella’s screen recorder. It takes only a couple of clicks to start recording in Tella and gives each team the ability to edit their recording. In this way, each team’s update is efficient and only includes the essentials.
