In addition to the action item section, there is a stream/meeting specific action item tab. This pulls out the action items for past and current notes, making it easy to review what has been done, and what still needs to be done.
Once enabled, you will be able to get an overview of the action items that originated during that stream. The number beside the Action items tab indicates the number of incomplete action items.
When you click into the tab, you also have the option to sort your action items by a variety of characteristics: Note (the note where the action item was created), Assignee (who has been assigned the task), Due Date (when it is due), and Status (complete, incomplete, won't do)
Depending on how you choose to sort your action item, you'll see different views. The default is Status, which means that you can quickly see what the incomplete action items are from previous meetings (similar to the carry forward function).
