When you organize a meeting, it’s probably your responsibility to take notes. Whether you plan to share those notes or just keep them as a reference, be prepared to capture them. Google Docs gives you a convenient way to start.
With a few clicks, you can select the upcoming meeting and have the details with sections for notes and action items all set. Then when the meeting starts, you’re a step ahead.
Insert a Meeting Notes Template in Google Docs
Go to the spot in your document where you want to add the meeting notes. Click Insert > Templates from the menu bar and select “Meeting Notes.”
You’ll then see a drop-down list of suggested events from your Google Calendar. Choose the meeting or use the Search box if you have many.
And just like that, a meeting note template will pop into your document. You’ll see the date, title, and attendees as Smart Chips. You can simply click one for additional details.
You have a spot for Notes with the first bullet point ready for your input. You also have an area for Action Items with the first box of a checklist. Like any list in Google Docs, add your item, hit Enter, and you’ll see another bullet or check box ready for your next item.
The meeting notes template in Google Docs is one of those features you don’t realize exists unless you’re browsing through the menu. So remember this handy tool for your next meeting and get a jumpstart on your meeting notes!
