Hi All,

I've recently written a quick blog digging into some of the detail around Microsoft Teams Meeting Notes, what they are and why they are like that, and trying to answer my own question of why didn't they just use OneNote.

Welcome any questions, comments or improvements from the community =)

Great blog Mike. I enjoyed reading it. Not a lot of people I talk to know about the MHT file or the hidden notes in OneDrive. Will be great to refer others to in the future.

Best, Chris

Hi, @Mike Parker.

I've also noticed that Meeting Notes (.mht) renders inside the Teams mobile app as compared to OneNote which opens a browser window if you click the Notebook tab.

 

Much better experience when the assets/pages are within the same app.

Do we know if there's a limit to the number of "sections" that can be created in the meeting notes tab? @Mike Parker

@Mike Parker thx for this. useful. still not sure if the users can easily compare previous meeting notes. like you are able in OneNote swapping from one page to the other , and copying content over from last meeting.  I am sure this in under development within Teams so let's see if MS can bring this together in a more user friendly way. (as my users got lost)
