Minute Taking in Microsoft Teams Meetings

When conducting meetings it is important to note key actions and takeaways for yourself and your team members to focus on. After-all there was a point to that meeting you just had right?

It can be hard to keep focus in meetings, especially if you are not a main contributor but suddenly find yourself with a ton of actions to perform. Taking meeting minutes becomes more critical and helps people be more productive about their time.

When you launch a Teams meeting, anyone can begin to take notes during the meeting and these notes are shared automatically with the meeting participants.. The notes are stored in a OneNote especially created for the meeting.

From the meeting control bar, click on the ellipsis (…) and select Show Meeting Notes

The notes section will open up as a blade to the right of the meeting window
