Docket’s 2020 Year in Review

Since January, it’s been a whirlwind of excitement for the Docket team. Despite the many changes this year has brought, we’ve pressed forward on our mission to rid the world of wasteful meetings.

Most notably, we’re proud to have helped thousands of teams navigate the digital transformation of their workspaces. Supporting organizations that have shifted to remote work environments and developed hybrid offices (like our own!) has been an inspiring challenge, and we’re honored to have played our part through it.

Before we close out the year, join us in reflecting on some of the exciting things from Docket in 2020.

2020 in Review

“I’m proud that our mission has helped thousands of teams reduce a common frustration during a time of overwhelming and dramatic change.

— Darin Brown, CEO

In January, we kicked off the year with a funding announcement and the launch of our premium Pro and Business plans. These offerings allowed us to provide greater customization and expand how everyone across an organization can use Docket to make meetings awesome.

We added Kelly Watkins to Docket’s board of directors. Her experience helping companies like Slack, GitHub, and Abstract has provided us valuable guidance throughout this year.

In May, we won the first-ever Zoom Marketplace “Whale Watch” competition sponsored by Zoom and investment partners Sequoia Capital, Emergence Capital, Horizon Ventures, and Maven Ventures.

Being named the winner of this competition helped us secure additional funding, allowing us to expand our team with five new full-time employees. We even welcomed four interns this summer.

“I’m proud of the team for excelling in this new normal by adapting, showing each other grace, finding balance, and working hard to create software that helps other teams do the same.”

— Dustin McCormick, VP of Engineering

We rolled out several new features and integrations to help teams lead better meetings throughout the year, including Guest Access, Meeting Search, Team Templates, and integrations with Salesforce and HubSpot. We were even honored as a featured Sales App at HubSpot’s INBOUND. Our biggest launch came near the end of the year with the release of Docket 2.0—combining our Agenda and Notes tabs into a unified document.

“The thing I’m most proud of this year was designing the groundwork for an unrivaled virtual meeting experience, during a year that proved the value of remote collaboration tools.”

— Dakoda Johnson, Designer

We expanded our library of professional meeting agenda templates to help teams across various disciplines jump into meeting preparation faster. From a package of templates to help plan and track OKRs to templates for help Agile teams with daily stand-ups and retrospectives to a suite of templates for client-facing meetings, we’ve added meeting ideas for every team.

And if the year didn’t leave us with enough to celebrate, we were honored when named Docket a Leader in the first-ever Grid® Report for the emerging Meeting Management Software category. We’re so thankful to our customers and our users for their support and feedback. We’re honored to serve you and help you make the most of every meeting.

“We had a lot of things happening, and a lot of people took note. I’m looking forward to the fun meeting intelligence features we will be working on. I feel those will give Docket high value in our space and garner even more popularity.”

— John Barlow, Senior Software Engineer


As we look ahead to 2021, we’re eagerly developing the next generation of meeting app features to help make your team’s collaboration productive, engaging, and inspiring.

We certainly can’t wait for the launch of Zoom’s new desktop app experience. The team is working hard to give Docket users enhanced in-meeting functionality in early 2021.

“2021 will be a huge year for Docket. We will take our current platform to an entirely different level for our customers. I look forward to hearing even more stories about people discovering through Docket that meetings can be fulfilling, enjoyable, and fun!”

— Heather Hansson, Director of Product
