Hardly any other function is changing as much within MS Teams as the note-taking function of the meetings. We had the wiki and OneNote as a note-taking feature. If you now click the “Notes” button in a meeting, the latest variant comes up and I think it’s very great: Notes with MS Loop 🚀💼
What are the advantages of MS Loop? 🌟
• 🚀 Parallel work: MS Loop allows you to work together on notes and documents in real time during your team meetings.
• 💬 Seamless collaboration: The loop components can be copied directly and pasted and opened in a Teams chat or mail. This way you can continue working on these components directly within chats and mails.
• 🌐 Web browser support: MS Loop offers you the possibility to open and edit the notes in a web browser.
• 📆 Task management made easy: When tasks are listed and assigned to people in a loop, they are automatically synchronized with the task owner’s planner. You will then find these tasks clearly arranged
in the “Task from Planner and ToDo” section in MS Teams.
But how do you find an MS Loop for a specific meeting later? 🤔
• 📆 In the meeting: Just click on the desired meeting and go to the “Details” section at the bottom. There you will find the link to the meeting notes.
• 📂 In OneDrive: If you were the meeting organizer, you can find the corresponding MS Loop document under “My Documents Meetings”. If you were a participant, look under “Shared.”
Now, of course, there are also a few things to keep in mind: 🔍
• 🌐 Internet connection required: An active internet connection is required to view or edit the content in MS Loop. Offline storage or synchronization is currently not possible.
• ❌ No external sharing with guests or externals: Microsoft Loop does not currently support sharing with guests or external users.
But don’t worry, these features are already in the planning stage!
