How To Take Meeting Minutes In Microsoft Teams

In this video, we're going to take a look at How To Take Meeting Minutes In Microsoft Teams because there are quite a few different, nuanced ways to take notes, depending on how you set up a Microsoft Teams meeting.

  • The video provides guidance on how to take meeting minutes in Microsoft Teams, addressing various scenarios depending on how the meeting was set up.

  • The most common way to set up a meeting is through the calendar, where you can add an agenda that others can edit in real-time during the meeting.

  • In a scheduled meeting, there is a notes section available where everyone can contribute their notes, but external participants may not have access to them.

  • The video suggests using the chat function to take meeting minutes in a channel meeting, keeping everything in context within the thread of information.

  • For channel meetings, the options for taking notes are limited to using the meeting chat, OneNote, or a planner set up within the team. OneNote requires setting it up as a tab in the channel for easy access.
