Decisions now includes an agenda time tracker and advanced decision management

Aug 8, '2019 / by Decisions

The Decisions development team has been hard at work this summer, building new features to help customers have better meetings. 

 

Time Management

There is now a visual cue that follows the length of the agenda to keep meetings on track and on time. If you want to see the precise time left for a topic, hover your mouse over the time tracker. The visual turns red when there’s less than one minute remaining.

Decision Management

Decisions recognizes and picks up tasks and decisions from the meeting minutes in OneNote and Word and syncs them within Microsoft Planner.

Now, you can override or replace earlier decisions with new ones. Previous decisions are nested with the new one so you can easily manage and track them. The same great feature that  shows you the meeting and meeting minutes connected to the decision will still be there.

  • Visit the decisions list from the agenda or within the Microsoft Teams tab
  • Click “replace previous decisions” from the menu (three dots)
  • Search for the decision you want to replace

Share OneNote Meeting Minutes

They also apply to minutes taken in Microsoft Word.
