In this article, you'll learn:
During a meeting, the conversation can become distracted by topics, issues, questions or initiatives that are important but off topic for that meeting. These are Backburner items. To help get the conversation back on topic, you can acknowledge the importance of the subject and capture it as a Backburner item in the meeting notes.
In Meeteor, we create a special task group "Backburner" as a default for every workspace so you don't lose any great ideas, but can also keep them separate from your actionable to-dos.
You can only create a Backburner item in a meeting. Click "T" (Task) as the note type and select Backburner in the drop-down menu as the Task Group and assign an owner who be responsible for ensuring the topic is addressed at the right time.
Yes! If you're still on the meeting notes page, you can choose any Task Group from the dropdown, and move Backburner item to any other Task Group.
If you're on the Tasks page, you can simply drag a Backburner item and drop it under any Task Group. Then you can manage all the details related to this task, including due dates, contributors, notes, and documents.
Backburner is below the main task list on the Tasks page. When you've addressed a Backburner item, you can check it off as complete. Once it's checked, the item will move to the Completed list at the bottom of the Tasks page.
Don't let Backburner items sit for too long. The owner is responsible for converting it to action, which may mean adding the topic to a meeting agenda, creating a task, or transferring the idea to another workspace.
