Meeting minutes and agenda template

Tasked with taking notes at a meeting? Use this handy template, and half your work is done.

Keep everyone on the same page

Just add your content

With the pre-formatted text as your guide, you can use this ready-to-use template to fill in the attendees, agenda, discussion and action items as soon as your meeting begins.

Invite your team to the doc

This cloud-based template makes sharing simple. No need to save to your hard drive, no need to attach it to an email. Just invite your meeting attendees into the doc.

Co-edit together in real time

After you invite your team to the doc, they can view the notes and add comments. They can even update text or add a photo of the whiteboard if you give them editing privileges.

4 tips to improve your meeting notes

1. Set up your doc before the meeting

This template is designed to get you organised and put everyone on the same page even before you meet. Because it’s a Dropbox Paper doc, it lets you link to calendar events and use time-saving keyboard shortcuts. 

2. Add links for context

If you have existing docs with background info, add links to help your team get up to speed. Before the meeting, share your meeting notes doc to provide context for the discussion.

3. Highlight key points

To make a note more noticeable, add images or Dropbox files to provide proof points and examples. With the Paper mobile app, you can snap a picture of whiteboards and stickies, and your photo will be automatically placed in your meeting notes.

4. Note decisions and tasks

The template’s to-dos feature shows your team the next steps and helps you keep track of action items. To quickly create tickboxes, type brackets (“[ ]”) followed by a space. To assign to-dos, just tag a teammate with @ plus their name.
