2Take Meeting Minutes with the Notecard

In order to utilize the Notecard during a meeting, the note taker will log into the meeting in MeetingBooster. The agenda is outlined on the left of the Notecard. The note taker can take notes on each topic, make conclusion statements, allocate tasks and enable meeting tools such as Voting etc. Everything is automatically transferred over to the meeting minutes.

Take Meeting Minutes with the Notecard

Documenting who said what during the meeting is important, and the note taker is able to take general notes to a topic or state which participant made the comment. Taking minutes can’t be any easier!

It is important to use conclusion statements instead of notes when something is decided upon as the meeting minutes can be viewed as “Conclusion Minutes” or “Discussion Minutes”. The Conclusion minutes will include an executive overview of the minutes and display only the conclusion statements made during the meeting whereas the Discussion minutes will show all notes leading up to the conclusion.
