Every meeting or stream that you have might have its own "defaults" or "preferences". It can be hard to keep track of, but you can use Stream settings to set/edit those defaults.

In Stream settings you can adjust settings for:

These Stream settings can be found by clicking on the lightning bolt icon in the upper right hand corner of the note.

Stream Details

Stream details is the place where you can edit the name of the stream and add/edit a description.


Meeting automations are actions that can be configured to happen before or after the meeting. At its core, meeting automations allow you to automate part of your meeting workflow including:

** Meeting Automations are a pro feature**


Set a default template for that stream. Or check that the right template is being used.

Sometimes, a template gets saved with incorrect information (like extra talking points). This can get confusing, but to resolve this you can go to Stream settings and see what is part of the template.

Or maybe your meeting has "outgrown" its template. Use Stream settings to Browse templates and find/create a new template that works better.

Tabs and bookmarks

Bookmarks and tabs allow users to pin internal and/or external resources to their Fellow streams so that everything is easily accessible. There are a few types of bookmarks and tabs including:

Action items

Quickly view complete or incomplete action items that originated during that stream by turning on the Action items tab. This is a great way to follow-up on action items, and keep everyone accountable.


You never know how well your meetings are going if you never ask the participants for feedback. ** Meeting Feedback is a pro feature**

If turned on, the Feedback tab will appear at the top of the stream. This will be a compilation of any feedback that has been gathered about that meeting.

On Pro Plans, if Request Meeting Feedback is turned on a thumbs up/thumbs down option will shown at the bottom of the note to encourage people to share their feedback. When they respond they will also be given the opportunity to provide more feedback about what they liked or what they didn't. By default, feedback gathered will be anonymous but you can turn this off in Stream Settings.


An objectives tab can be added to streams to make it easy to discuss the progress of OKRs during team meetings. This will help ensure that every team member is aligned on project goals. **Objectives are an Enterprise level feature**

Apply filters to see specific and relevant Objectives for your team. For example, if this is a Marketing team meeting, I'd filter to only shown Marketing team objectives for the current cycle.

Other bookmarks

Adding a bookmark to another Fellow note, or external site makes it easy for everyone to have access to the same resources (plus it's very easily accessible).

These can be bookmarks to shared streams, YouTube videos, Confluence, etc.


Carry forward is when incomplete action items and/or talking points are carried forward to the next instance of the meeting so that nothing gets lost.

For both talking points and action items, there are three options: Ask me, Always, Never

Always and never are fairly clear, either items are automatically carried forward each time or no items are ever carried forward.

For the Ask me option, when a new note is created you will see a banner at the top of the note showing the number of incomplete action items and/or talking points. In this case, I have 2 of each.

I then have the choice if I want these carried forward or not. And I make this choice by pressing No or Yes.

Calendar Events

For 1-on-1s and team meetings, the notes in Fellow will have a related calendar event. If you have merged the notes for more than one calendar event, you will see all the events associated with the notes.


With this integration section, you can set it up so that all action items are synced to a specific Asana project, ClickUp space, and Trello or board.

For example, if you have a specific Project check-in meeting, you can link that Asana project with the stream so that action items created in this stream will be synced directly with that Asana project.

** These integrations are Pro features**
