  1. Would you like to embed your product inside Coviu?
  • Would a screen share suffice? If so, Coviu can do that without modification.

  4. Coviu & Partner: Decide on timeline for shared marketing, PR and launch activities
  5. Partner: Submit App code at least 2 weeks before planned launch date
