Hi. 

 

On the page https://support.office.com/en-us/article/take-meeting-notes-in-teams-3eadf032-0ef8-4d60-9e21-0691d31... it is described that to start to take meeting notes before the actual meeting, you should: "go to Meetings on the left side of the app, select the meeting, and click Chat with participants. Select the Meeting Notes tab, then click Start taking meeting notes."

 

My issue is that I don't find anywhere to click "Start taking meeting notes". Has anyone been able to get this to work? 

 

Thanks, Magnus

Yes, Christopher, that we have worked out is the only way of having a meeting note in advance of a meeting. It is by no means a user friendly procedure, and not something I will be able to recommend to the group I am working with at the moment (a management board for a large company), i.e. 1. to take your time to start a meeting in advance and 2. have the notice inserted in the meeting thread that the meeting already has occurred. 

 

So I conclude that there's no reasonable way of having a meeting note created for a channel meeting before the actual meeting. I hope Microsoft is working on implementing a solution for this.

 

So what will I be recommending? Well, I noticed today that the OneNote app recently was updated with the feature of connecting its pages to meetings (in particular to Teams meetings, something OneNote 2016 isn't able to do) so I think that's the way forward until the meeting note logic in Teams has been improved.

 

Thanks for your help guys! It's much appreciated. //Magnus

your conclusion seems right! 

 

Me and Chris will attend the Teams AMA later today and bring it up there
