0/ 💡 We have taken meetings at Doist to the next level by using Todoist to structure them. Some tips on how we make meetings more productive.

1/ ✍️ Having an agenda makes it easy to keep a meeting on track. Sharing an agenda beforehand makes it easier to prepare for a meeting. We cancel/postpone meetings that don't have a good or a full agenda.

2/ ✅ During a meeting we assign actionable tasks with due dates. Given that the whole organization uses Todoist in daily workflows it means that tasks aren't forgotten. People can also use things like reminders, priorities, labels to ensure that things get scheduled and done.

3/ 📝 Comments are used to add context or description. This is especially useful to do before a meeting, so people can have a full context and can prepare adequately.

4/ 🔬 The project history is used to review past agendas or actionable tasks.

5/ 💨 You can do all of the above using a document, but Todoist is better as you'll get more structure and you can easier assign actionable tasks. Using Todoist Quick Add it's also trivial to add an agenda item from anywhere in a matter of seconds.

6/ 🚦 Bonus tip: Red, yellow, green check-in is a great way to start a meeting, and get a pulse on what energy people are entering a meeting with. We only do these for our 1 on 1 meetings.
