About this template...

If there's one template you need, that's the Standard Meeting template. Use it when none of the other templates are more appropriate.

How to use it
Start by preparing an agenda. A good practice is to assign owners to each talking points, so that everyone shows up to the meeting prepared. During the meeting, write down all the decisions that are taken. We highly recommend that you describe the decision making process. It's just all too common for a team to make a decision today and make the exact opposite one a month later because everyone has forgotten why it was made in the first place. With this template, you should be able to avoid this caveat quite easily.
Finally, after the meeting, add tasks and assign them to your teammates. You can create Asana tasks, Trello cards and more right from Scriby. Make it your own
The standard meeting template is meant to be customized for your own needs. Just import it in your meeting and add more specific categories, as needed.

Why use meeting notes templates?

Make meetings result-oriented
Meeting notes and summaries unarguably make meetings more productive. They encourage attendees to focus on what should matter: action items and decisions. Research has showed that participants of a meeting are a lot less likely to leave a meeting frustrated about wasting their time when someone was asked to capture the minutes.

Save time preparing meetings
In truth, meetings are more similar than they are different. So chances are that you'll repeatedly go through very similar meetings. Instead of coming up with an agenda and a structure every single time you're in a meeting, you can save time by using a prebuilt template. With Scriby, you can even create your own meeting templates.

Break down communication silos
Meeting note templates help structure the meeting, increase accountability and decrease miscommunication. Meeting minutes templates also help clarify what the objectives of the meeting are. For Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, it is very important before the meeting to make explicit if "we are in the room to make a decision or to have a discussion?" Different templates for different expected results: that's exactly what you can build with Scriby.
