It’s likely that in today’s remote work environment that someone is going to be late and/or not attend the meeting. While you don’t want to get into the practice of having people miss meetings, making sure that they can be recorded is an important option, particularly as it can serve as a record of the meeting.
If you are going to record, be sure to check out any local legislation and/or policies around recording and privacy and what agreements need to be obtained in order to share the recording. Check out Rev.com and Temi.com, two transcription services that offer low cost options. You’ll want to try out a couple of options to see what is going to work best for you, AND this can save a lot of time which used to be spent on having someone take hours typing in their handwritten notes.
One real benefit to recording meetings is that you can use the transcript from the call to serve as official meeting minutes. It can also serve as a “going back to” place to confirm who is going to do what as a result of the call.
Another consideration is where will things be housed. Consider a common naming system (i.e. date, focus) and also consider how additional materials may be housed. This could include handouts and other items.
