How to Write a Meeting Agenda or Recap

Points to remember

When taking notes, please:

  • Update the links for the SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. log and the agenda.
  • Do not copy and paste the whole Slack conversation, the meeting recap is a summary of the meeting not a dump of Slack.
  • Please make sure you use .org IDs in the recap for attendees, acknowledgements, and notes. Only use Slack usernames for announcing new team members. All attendees are asked to provide their .org ID’s at the beginning of the meeting. If in doubt you can ask the attendee.
  • Do not include any links to Google documents or other similar areas of organization that have been referenced in the meeting as this can get hijacked when in the public domain. Instead, please reference the Slack link where the document has been mentioned.

As an example, please view the recap meeting notes for December 7, 2021.

The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience.

Type /re and select the Recap reusable block
