First thoughts on Amy (x dot aiiiii)

Last week I was part of the lucky few to get onto Amy’s good list. I made it to the automated personal assistant free account and she happily just set about handling her first meeting.

So how’d it go? Over-all it was great, and sooooo close…… The on-boarding was real easy. The instructions are REALLY clear and the start of the process was easy. Also, the real test, both participants made it to the meeting.

But right near the event, here’s where it went slightly off the rails. My colleague. helpfully emailed over his phone number, just in-case I got lost or needed a hand. Amy however, she auto-resent out a new invite to everyone updating the meeting from a “Meet in person” to a “Call” eeek.

Because I’m not a total truster of new tech I only let Amy book up a simple meeting with one person who I know, however if this was for a few people and in the last minute it tried to re-arrange something that could have been a problem.

I wonder if Amy could have a “1 hour to meeting *lock*”, where the ususal flurry of emails from anyone but the organiser will ask permission to change the details rather than straight away sending out 10 new invites and changing the scope of the meet. That or improved understanding of people sending their phone number just to be helper.

Now I know it’s naughty only posting stuff when it doesn’t work, but I hope you’ll see from this that I really like x.ai so far, and a tweak would make it less panicy.
