There may be times when you need to reconcile all of your meeting notes into one document. Even though all the important topics covered in the meeting will be covered in the document, it can be quite difficult to remember everything. Also, including other attendees’ suggestions and feedback in the document after a meeting can take time.
To help you in such situations, Google simplified the method of creating, sharing and attaching to encountertake notes in Meet and Calendar. He made it very simple for a Google Meet organizer to start a new Google Docs for meeting notes from inside Google Calendar events and use it more to collaborate with other participants.
This method allows you to create a google Doctor for meeting notes, attach them to a calendar event and share the notes with everyone in the meeting. Additionally, the link between the calendar event and the document allows users to access notes from Google Drive and Google Calendar. Here’s how you can create meeting notes in Google Calendar and then access them during your meeting:
