Improve your workflow
Stay on track with actionable meeting notes
Nourish your note-taking know-how with your reMarkable paper tablet.
There’s no one right way to record what happens in a meeting. What’s important is that someone is on hand to turn discussion into clear action.
That someone could be you. Whether you prefer detailed meeting minutes, a simple agenda with bullet points, or a more specialized technique such as the Cornell Method, your paper tablet supports many workflows with templates and other features that make taking and sharing meeting notes effortless.
Looking for new ways to take meeting notes? Here are three examples to try:
If your team regularly shares meeting agendas ahead of time, the outline method may be for you. Adding notes below different items on the agenda may sound simple, but that doesn’t make this method any less powerful.
Writing on paper, this method can quickly become messy and chaotic, with notes belonging to one item spilling over into another. On reMarkable, you can select and shift around handwritten text with ease.
Use the selection tool to grab, move, and resize individual words, sentences, or entire paragraphs, giving yourself more room during meetings when a specific topic dominates discussion; taking up most of your time and notes.
Instead of following the chronological flow of the meeting, the quadrant method splits your notes into four sections for predictable, organized note-taking every time. Label the quadrants “questions,” “notes,” “personal action items,” and “assign to others” — or add your own twist to the categories — and add notes to each section as the meeting progresses.
Promoting focus is one of this method’s biggest strengths. For example, if you need to review your personal action items, the quadrant method gives you a clutter-free view of just the tasks assigned to you.
For an extra layer of prioritization, use different-colored highlights to draw attention to important details like dates and results.
Popular among students, the Cornell Method encourages you to summarize meetings and condense your notes into key topics and questions.
Use the Cornell template to guide your note-taking using this technique. Record concise notes in the lined section on the right, add overarching topics and questions in the left-hand column, and summarize the meeting at the bottom.
If you need to revisit your meeting notes, glancing at the summary section saves you time.
After the meeting
Your reMarkable makes it easy to get meeting notes quickly and safely into the hands of people who can act on them.
You can convert your handwriting to typed text that can be reused in emails, reports, or presentations. To optimize your handwriting for conversion to text, remember to use simple formatting: your reMarkable can recognize and convert cursive and block letters, bullet points, and even some smiley faces, but not mathematical symbols and diagrams.
You can send your converted notes by email directly from your reMarkable, but you can also integrate Google Drive, Dropbox, and Microsoft OneDrive with your paper tablet. This enables you to upload notes and documents to the cloud storage solution your colleagues are already using, making them readily available to the whole organization.
Need a few more lines to fit all your meeting notes? There’s no need to add a whole new page. Use two fingers to pan and scroll inside any document, giving you more space to work with.
