Meetings in SoWork
The core of the SoWork virtual office experience: simply walk up to another teammate to connect over a video or audio call! As long as both teammates are set to "Available" they'll connect and have a meeting. From there you can invite others, launch your many meeting tools, convert the meeting to private, and much more.
What a spontaneous meeting between teammates looks like in SoWork
SoWork offers preset Meeting Zones for you and your team, for example: "All Hands", "Team Standups", "Break Rooms" and many, many more. If you're feeling creative, you can even make your own custom zones in Mapmaker.

Meeting Summaries and Meeting Library (Codex)
SoWork offers automated Meeting Summaries powered by our Smart Office AI Assistant Sophia. Sophia can summarize your meeting, assign action items, and share or email the summary to anyone of your choosing.
SoWork's Meeting Library (your 'Codex'), is your one-stop shop for all of your team's Meeting Summaries. Here, you can quickly browse meetings you've attended or missed, and even read select Meeting Summaries that Teammates have shared with you.

Teammate Connection Insights
Studies show that teammates feel happiest and fulfilled at work when they have strong connections with at least 3-5 teammates. In your virtual office in SoWork, you can make sure that happens.
Connection Insights help you to see at a glance who your closest Teammates are, and who you might want to start talking to more to make sure they feel included on the team, too.
The "What's Happening" tab in your SoWork Office makes it super easy to get signal on what your teammates are up to and who's around - enabling you to communicate quickly and collaborate and brainstorm effortlessly.

Online Status and Working Hours
Whether it's time for deep work or if IRL beckons you can set your avatar's online status accordingly. Available let's others connect to you via proximity while Unavailable let's other's know that you're away.
Working hours let your teammates know what times you’re working and are generally available. At the end of your day when you are offline, they will also let others know when you'll be back.
Availability insights help you collaborate efficiently
Decision and notification fatigue is real but in SoWork we'll do the heavy lifting for you. With at a glance memo notifications you can quickly see and prioritize tasks around unblocking projects and moving work forward versus catching up or teammate bonding.
SoWork's Memos help lower the burden of decision and notification fatigue
Mapmaker and Avatars
SoWork's Mapmaker offers everything from preset options to fully customizable offices, furniture, landscapes, Meeting Zones, holiday themes, importable map art and objects, and more. If you can dream it, you can do it in SoWork!

Having your own spot in your virtual Office is a great way to let others know where to find you and gives you the opportunity to decorate your desk and walls in style with our Mapmaker. When you're offline your Workspot serves as a beacon location where teammates can message and leave you memos for when you return.

Teammates and Visitor Passes
All SoWork plans allow an unlimited amount of teammates in your virtual office. Teammates have access to all core features in SoWork.
A Visitor Pass grants your Guests access to your office for 2 hours. Guests are temporary visitors to your virtual office, they have fewer permissions and cannot access your Office's Premium features or teammate data (like Mapmaker or your Automated Meeting Summaries).
SoWork's Teammate Management tab makes it easy to manage permissions in your virtual office.
Slack and Google Calendar
With integrations for Slack, Google Calendar, and more, you can streamline your app switching so you can spend more time on the work that really matters.

Use Zapier to connect SoWork's AI summaries and action items to all of your team's most popular apps. Send AI Meeting Summaries to Notion so you can store them with all your other notes. Synchronize Action Items to Asana tasks, so your team can take action as soon as the meeting ends. The possibilities are endless!
Zapier integrations are exclusively available for Premium Offices and Trials.

Coming soon: sync all of your recurring and future events to your SoWork office, so you can update the location in one click.
Why Remote Teams Love SoWork 💜
SoWork has played a crucial role in bringing our team closer together. One of the key factors for us was giving each team member the opportunity to create their own unique and engaging work environment. With SoWork, it's incredibly easy for team members to connect online, collaborate, and engage with one another.
Jana EStrategy and Innovation Specialist
SoWork has not only heightened the hybrid work experience, it has surpassed it. Today, there are many features on the platform that I wish we had in real-life. These are so good and make so much sense that we even tried to implement some of these features in our physical office.
Russell SDeveloper Relations Manager
SoWork’s AI note-taking tool is just a game-changer. This feature automatically takes notes during meetings and transcribes them for easy reference later on.
These automated meeting summaries save time and ensure that important information is not missed, and action items are automatically created.

I've had phenomenal coworking and also social experiences on SoWork - night and day from remote work on Zoom because interactions among teammates feel so much more natural and spontaneous.
In my experience the SoWork team is also super-responsive to feedback and needs of customers.
Diego TMid-Market Business Owner
