Meeting Minutes represents the clock time of a meeting – or in the case of the summary metrics at the top of the Meetings tab, the sum of the clock times of all meetings in the view. Participant Minutes and the subsidiary values Participant Video Minutes and Participant Audio Minutes all take into account the number of participants and their individual time of participation in meetings.
As an example, look at the screenshot below which shows a filtered list of three meetings.
For meeting #1: Meeting Minutes = 50.35, the clock time of 50 minutes and 21 seconds. Participant Minutes (and since this call, like all three, is video only, Participant Video Minutes) is the sum of the individual participants’ time on the call, or 50.33 minutes + 50.07 minutes = 100.40 minutes.
For meeting #2: Meeting Minutes = 74.32, the clock time of 74 minutes and 19 seconds. Participant Minutes is the sum of the individual participants’ time on the call, or 74.17 minutes + 74.07 minutes = 148.23 minutes.
For meeting #3: Meeting Minutes = 93.05, the clock time of 93 minutes and 3 seconds. Participant Minutes is the sum of the individual participants’ time on the call, or 93.02 minutes + 92.82 minutes = 185.83 minutes.
(Note, the display data for individual figures reflects rounding that may not perfectly tie when summed with other similarly rounded figures. In a similar way, clock times are presented without fractional seconds displayed, leading to similar minor anomalies.)
At the summary level (the key figures above the detailed list of meetings), the totals for Meeting Minutes and Participant Minutes are presented without fractional portions of minutes, so Meeting Minutes = 50.35 minutes + 74.32 minutes + 93.05 minutes = 217 minutes (217.72 minutes), and Participant Minutes (and Participant Video Minutes in this example) = 100.40 minutes + 148.23 minutes + 185.83 minutes = 434 minutes (434.46 minutes).
