Sometimes it's helpful to highlight certain information in your notes, add content hierarchy to an agenda or provide additional reference information within text. Meeteor enables you to bold, italicize, add hyperlinks, and break text into multiple lines. Click here to learn more about how it works.
To help you get the most out of these formatting features, we've provided some examples of how you can leverage formatting to make your content more productive. If you have other formatting hacks, please share them with us!
In this article, you'll learn how to:
- Create sub bullet points under a main item
- Utilize italic text for adding secondary information
- Provide a shortcut to reference material
- Bold the first line to make it a header.
- Break the sub items into new lines and add a "-" before each item like bullet points.
Use case 1: Meeting Agenda
Some teams add additional information to each agenda topic for clarity or group similar discussion items together under a bigger topic. Advanced formatting provides more flexibility to create an agenda that works for your team.
Example 1: Create a main agenda topic with detailed questions for discussion.
Use case 2: Taking Notes
When taking notes during a meeting that has multiple topics being discussed, it can be helpful to keep similar conversation together.
Example 2: Create a header to identify the conversation topic and add relevant notes as sub-bullets. (Notes are only for reference, not for actions.)
- Add secondary information in parentheses and italicize the text so it's distinguished from the main text.
Use case: Agenda
When multiple people are facilitating or presenting different topics in a meeting, it's helpful to clarify the owner and time allotted for each agenda item.
Example: List the time allocated for each agenda item.
- Go to the page you want to link to and copy the web address (URL).
- Paste that as the hyperlink in your text.
* Text that is formatted as a link will not appear on the Documents page of the Workspace.
Use case 1: Reference content within Meeteor
When the discussion in a meeting is dependent on the results of the previous conversation OR when there are cross workspace references, it can be helpful to provide a direct link to that reference material.
Example 1: Add prework called "Review meeting notes from last meeting" and link directly to that prior meeting.
*Go to the meeting you want to link to, and copy the web address (URL) for that meeting.
Use Case 2: Meeting logistics
Provide a direct link to a Webex, GoogleHangout or other virtual conference information so its quick and easy for everyone to join at the start of the meeting.
Example 2: Add a direct link to the screen share.
Use Case 3: Reference material
Inevitably there will be external content that is referenced in a conversation. It can be helpful to include a direct link to that reference material so you can keep the key takeaway on hand and have the full information easily accessible.
Example 3: Reference an article in a Learning by capturing the key takeaway in Meeteor and linking to the original article.
