Login in to Myna
First things first: You need an account with Myna to use the app. If you haven't please visit here to sign up
The very first thing you will see after the app starts is the login screen, which looks a bit like this:
Click on the "Sign-in" button to sign in to Myna
Once you have done this, return to the app and you should see something like this:
Office 365 or Gmail user? You connect the app your calendar to automatically start and stop meetings
If not, skip to the next section
Click on your calendar provider eg "Outlook" for Office 365
If you can't see this page, look for three dots in the lower left hand side of the page
and click "Account"
Follow the login procedure and you should now see the Calendar screen
Anything highlighted in red is an automatically recorded meeting. What makes something an automatic recording is driven from your General Settings. These include Zoom and Skype meetings
If you want to select (or deselect) a meeting being recorded, just select or deselect the tick box
The calendar refreshes when you first log in, so if a meeting is added for the same day, you will need to hit "Refresh" to update it
The next step sets where your recordings will be stored. To get the best out of Myna, and to get your SmartTranscript delivered to you, you will need to store your recordings in Dropbox
First, be certain that you have a Dropbox folder, and that you have connected Myna to your Dropbox account. If you have, the path should look like C:\Users\<your name>\Dropbox (Personal)\Apps\MeetMyna
So click on the 3 dots
and in the bottom right-hand side, click "Set Directory"
Here you need to select the Myna App Dropbox folder
Audio device setup
Click on the 3 dots again
and click on "Audio Device Settings"
Select the Mic and Speakers you want to capture
Configure Voice Activation
This is a great way of cutting out background noise like typing from your side of the recording.
Click on "Configure Voice Activation"
And you will see a screen like this:
Click "Auto Configure"
Select your default language and click the record button
You will need to speak in your usual voice for about 20 seconds, and feel free to read the text on screen if it helps. Nothing will be send back to Myna.
Once you have finished, you will see a screen like this.
You can see how well the system performs by recording your voice, and playing it back.
Now, click the back button
And you're done!
If you want more control over automatic recording, including driving your recordings from labels in Outlook, then move on to the next article. Otherwise, you are good to go and "meet memorable"!
