Sometimes adding talking points, action items, and bullets is not enough. While those options are great, they don't support ongoing discussion and don't support any sort of emotional reaction.

The good news is that Fellow has comments & reactions that can help fill that gap!

What are Comments & Reactions?

Comments: Questions, updates, or thoughts attached to a specific talking point, action item, or bullet point. Comments enable you to have asynchronous discussions outside of the meeting time, and leave notes about that specific point. (Pro Feature)

Reactions: Emojis attached to a specific talking point, action item, or bullet point that convey general reactions. For example, if a teammate adds good news into the agenda you'll be able to react with a 🀩 , πŸ† , or πŸ¦Έβ€β™€οΈ . There are so many possibilities

Where can I add comments & reactions?

Comments and reactions can be added to any content in a note such as talking points, action items, or bullet points.

How can I leave a comment and how can I leave a reaction?

First find the point that you would like to add the comment or reaction to. Then click on the three dot drop down at the end of the line. Select Add a comment.. or Add a reaction. And that's it.

How to find resolved comments?

If you have accidentally resolved a comment thread or need to refer back to it at a later date you can go to the three dot drop down for the specific note in the series and show resolved comments.

Potential use cases for comments & reactions

Async meetings

Use comment and reactions to interact with the meeting agenda asynchronously. Attendees can leave comments or reactions to show that they have read the agenda, provide input, or just celebrate good news.

Voting or pulse checks

Reactions are a great way to run a quick poll and reach a decision. At Fellow, we've even used reactions to vote for teams in social events. It's quick and easy way to see if there is any consensus.

Minimize distruputions

During large meetings such as a town hall, encourage attendees to add their questions as comments or respond with reactions. This can help the meeting stay on track.
