Use this template to keep your meetings focused, document agendas, track decisions, and detail action items. Be organized, productive, and prepared in an easy and visual way.

Pro-tip: You can use this mural on your own, or invite your team to collaborate for a more visually engaging meeting (plus a shared record of what you discussed).

The meeting notes template helps you:

  • Keep your meetings focused and on track
  • Get aligned with your team
  • Document ideas and decisions in a shared digital space
  • Track action items and progress

How to use the meeting notes template

To use the Mural meeting notes template with your team, follow the steps outlined below.

1. Define meeting goals

The first step for your meeting notes mural is to define the goals you’d like to achieve with your meeting. Use the color-coded sticky notes on the left side to add your goals.

2. Create your agenda

In the next column, use the sticky notes to create a basic outline that will serve as the agenda for the meeting.

3. Build a list of attendees

The third step is to define your attendees for the meeting — one useful tip is to give each participant a distinct color for their sticky notes, so that it’s easy to track who is contributing (you can also assign tags to each participant and attach them to sticky notes for the same purpose).

4. Conduct your meeting

As you move through your agenda, empower your team to add sticky notes with thoughts or feedback using the center section of the mural. This can help influence or guide your decisions and action items.

5. Record decisions and define action items

Once you’ve moved through your discussion points for the meeting, add any decisions or action items to the right side of the mural using the appropriate columns — here again using a color-coding or tagging system can help make roles and responsibilities clear across your team.

Tips for using the meeting notes template

To get the most out of the Mural meeting notes template with your team, you should:

  • Define your goals, agenda, and (of course) list of attendees before the meeting, so you can hit the ground running and immediately empower people to participate
  • If you want to collect feedback as a group but avoid groupthink, try using Mural’s private mode, which allows you to have each participant contribute their thoughts privately and without influencing one another
  • Keep your meeting notes mural up to date so that you can track progress over time, review discussion points, and take action faster
