With Meeting Notes, you can include and track the processes, decisions and required action items directly related to the entities in AdaptiveWork.
These entities include Work Items such as Programs and Projects, Portfolios, Cases, Customers, Users/Resources, Objectives, Targets and Contributions.
Meeting Notes can provide a broader picture of what came before the entity, as well as track the new decisions and the ongoing progress of action items happening outside of the entity.
A Meeting Note can include multiple Decisions and Action Items.

When you add a new Meeting Note, its state is Unpublished. During this stage, you can add details to the Meeting Note, as well as have additional users add Decisions and Action Items to the Meeting Note.
