Automatically Share Meeting Notes in Google Docs

By now, you’ve probably read our posts on streamlining your workflows with automation and automatically sharing meeting notes in Slack. So you probably have a good idea of how integrating meeting notes with the tools you already use can save a lot of time and effort sharing the information that comes out of meetings. In this post, we’ll do a quick refresh on the importance of sharing meeting information and cover how to connect Supernormal with Google Docs, so you can automatically share your notes into Docs to make your workflow sing! 

The Value of Sharing Meeting Information

Meetings are an important part of how work gets done. They provide a space for exchanging ideas, solving problems, and making important decisions. However, the real value of meetings lies not only in the time spent together but in how information is generated and shared afterward. Here are some ways sharing meeting information can be so valuable:

  • Ensuring Alignment: Sharing meeting notes and outcomes helps ensure that all team members are on the same page regarding decisions made and action items assigned. This alignment is crucial for avoiding misalignment and fostering a shared understanding of the team's objectives.
  • Promoting Transparency: Openly sharing meeting information promotes transparency within the team. When everyone has access to the same information, it builds trust and encourages a culture of openness.
  • Enhancing Accountability: By sharing meeting notes and action items, team members are held accountable for their commitments. It helps track progress and reminds individuals of their responsibilities, increasing overall accountability within the team.
  • Facilitating Knowledge Transfer: Valuable insights and knowledge often emerge during meetings. By sharing this information, team members who were unable to attend or weren’t invited can benefit from the collective wisdom, fostering continuous learning and growth and defeating dreaded meeting FOMO. 

Integrating Supernormal + Google Docs

Google Docs is a widely utilized platform for creating and editing documents collaboratively in real time. When combined with Supernormal, this integration unlocks a new level of seamless collaboration for teams. Here's a breakdown of how this integration operates and the transformative potential it holds for team productivity:

  • Easier Note Formatting: For all our die-hard note-takers who have a meticulous way of writing and sharing notes - we see you! The integration of Google Docs empowers individuals to easily collect, edit, and format their notes in the collaborative documentation tool they already know and love. You no longer have to copy and paste notes from Supernormal. Now you can have the notes and any portion of the notes automatically ported into a new or existing Google doc! 
  • Instant Document Sharing: With Supernormal, you can automatically share notes with other call participants or with a Group. We take this a step further by integrating with Google Docs. Now you can instantly share notes into a Google doc that’s shared with anyone. 
  • Central Hub for Information: Supernormal remains a centralized place for all your meeting notes but we know that you might already use Google Docs as your team’s knowledge repository. With this new integration, you can seamlessly import your meeting information into the place where you keep everything else.  

If you’re a Google Docs user, the integration with Supernormal not only simplifies collaboration but also enhances productivity by creating a unified ecosystem where all the work that comes out of meetings meets non-meeting work.
