Why do you need meeting notes and meeting minutes?

While you can record Zoom or Teams calls and transcribe them, meeting notes and meeting minutes provide quick visibility of what was discussed—to attendees as well as stakeholders who couldn’t make it. Standardizing your meeting notes format ensures consistency across team members while encouraging a culture of intentionally-designed and productive meetings.
Coda is an all-in-one doc for your team. And because real-time collaboration is a core feature of Coda docs, meeting notes can be edited and seen by multiple people simultaneously.

Key components of a meeting notes template.

The actual meeting notes.
Coda starts with a familiar writing surface, so you can use the bulleted lists, checkboxes, and color formatting you’re used to with other writing applications.
Action item tracking.
Hold your teammates accountable with a table for action item tracking—right in your notes, without having to switch to another tab.
Agenda and discussion topics.
This template contains placeholders for the agenda, date, attendees, and meeting notes. All you need to do is fill them out.

Step-by-step instructions for using this template.

Additional sections you might include in your meeting notes template.
