A good way to get familiar with them is to check out a few samples and templates. Essentially, they are documents that gather important aspects of a business meeting: from the agenda to the follow-up actions. For example, if you're going to conduct a meeting to discuss a new business plan with your board members, you'll need a specific meeting report to get things covered. You need to jot down important points to be addressed during the meeting.
Some of the main things your meeting report sample should always include: the date, meeting attendees, the agenda and a space to jot down actions and tasks agreed upon during the meeting. One of the best ways to stay consistent across meetings, team weekly, and never have to wonder about how to structure a meeting report is by creating your team's very own, reusable, template. In Slite, you can use customizable templates for your team to re-use every time they have a meeting. In the end, the best way for a meeting report to be successful is by making sure everyone prepares in advance, follows the agenda, and comes out with actionable, clear meeting notes. Most of all, the meeting report should be available for everyone present at the meeting, and stored in an accessible place for all.
