Welcome to Fellow!
How Fellow is Organized
Fellow is divided into three main sections: Home, Meetings, and Feedback.
And within each of those categories are various elements including action items, templates, meeting streams, private streams, shared streams, and feedback.
But to get started, we’d recommend exploring meetings first.
The meeting view in Fellow is essentially your calendar and a meeting note. The idea is that you’ll be able to tie each meeting note directly to the calendar event for easy access and organization.
But here is where it gets special, you’ll be able to collaborate on this meeting note in real time, specify the takeaways/todos, and create a historical stream of notes.
Inside a Fellow Note
Talking points are checkable discussion topics. You’ll be able to check these off as you go through the meeting, add supplementary notes to them, plus (if you want) any talking points that you don’t discuss can be carried forward to the next meeting.
Action Items are a type of to-do. They are designated tasks that someone is assigned that they need to get done. To make sure no action items are lost, all your action items will be compiled in one master to-do list of sorts. Plus any incomplete action items can be carried forward as well.
So when you have an upcoming meeting, you can add to the agenda in advance (as can your teammates) so you create a collaborative meeting agenda. Each person can add talking points, additional notes, or resources. They can create headers, format text, and highlight specific items or add any relevant links to documents.
Then during the meeting, you can add supplemental notes, check off talking points as they get discussed, and then assign clear action items to your team
If this is a meeting that happens more than once, you’ll be able to see all of the older notes in one continuous stream. All of your notes will be stacked on top of each other, but more importantly this means you’ll just need to scroll back to see previous notes and what was discussed.
Outside a Fellow Note
The other important thing to know, is that you can send the agenda/notes out to your team using email, Slack, or MS Teams. Which can prompt your team to add their own talking points. Or be a nice recap after the meeting.
Once you know how meeting notes work in Fellow, then you’re off to a great start because the same principles that apply to meeting notes apply to Streams! You can add content, format however you would like, and all your notes will be grouped in streams.
