When joining any meeting in Microsoft Teams, you have the option to share your meeting notes in a wiki page.
This has different advantages than sharing your notes with OneNote, which we covered in a previous article in this series.
Wiki pages are simple yet flexible pages that let you add text with formatting, links, quotes and images.
In this article we continue our series designed to help you understand the options that are available in Teams Meetings, and to share in one central resource all the information you need to use Meetings in Microsoft Teams.
Sharing your meeting notes with Wiki pages in Teams
To capture your meeting notes in a wiki page in Teams, follow these steps:
Once your meeting is created, it will appear in your calendar.
To add notes in a wiki page, you need to join the meeting from your calendar:
- Open the meeting invitation
- Click the Join button
Tip: You can also click the Join Microsoft Teams Meeting link at the bottom.
After you have selected the audio and video settings for your meeting:
- Click Join now
- Click on the Ellipsis (…)
- Click Show meeting notes
One advantage of adding notes to a Teams meeting is the ability to use Rich Text formatting.
To use Rich Text click on the Ellipsis (…)
The following will happen when you add notes from a Teams meeting:
- A new wiki page will be created
- A new tab called Meeting Notes is added to your channel, letting you share the notes for each meeting.
So to recap, it’s important to remember that the option to capture meeting notes in wiki pages is only available once you have joined the meeting in Teams.
And once meeting notes have been captured, users will be able to view and edit those notes by clicking on the Meeting Notes tab in the channel for that team.
Unfortunately Wiki pages in Microsoft Teams are not searchable in Teams, SharePoint or Delve as of this writing.☹
