Meeting notes



We'd like to use Confluence to keep meeting notes, which will include action items.

We know that there's a limited option for this currently in Confluence (setting dates, and tagging people), however - this is not enabling us to use different dashboards for the content of these tasks. (for example, see all tasks together of 1 project, of a resource, filter by due date, etc.). We're actually looking for something which will integrate meeting notes while generating JIRA-similar-tasks (from content perspective).


Are there tasks in Confluence which can be integrated? Can we modify the pages on Confluence to look like meeting notes?

Hi Sagi,

do you also have a JIRA installation? If so, I would leave the tasks in JIRA and create reports in Confluence for these JIRA-issues.

But if not, you are very limited regarding tasks in Confluence. 

Do you know this blog: ? Maybe you get some ideas from that

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for your answer. I do have JIRA. However, I don't have an intuitive way to open JIRA tasks from confluence. I assume I will need to create those first in JIRA, and then copy a link to the meeting notes. I'm looking for something which is a bit more straightforward while conducting the meeting.

Any ideas?

You can write the JIRA Summary on the Confluence page in the meeting. Just the summary as text.

If you are ready with most of the summaries, save the page and select one line and hover over that selected line. If Confluence and JIRA are connected to each other, you will see a small JIRA Icon. Click on that, enter JIRA Project, issue type and description.

The text on the confluence page will change to the representation of the JIRA issue and you can open the issue with one click and edit the assignee, due date, details and so on later after the meeting.

You could also put a JIRA filter macro into the Confluence Meeting Notes so that it dynamically shows the tasks (issues). (This requires JIRA and Confluence to be linked.)
