Confluence Meeting Notes and Microsoft Outlook

We are currently in the process of transitioning off OneNote and SharePoint over to Confluence.  One of the things that I am currently agnonising over is the very easy way that I can take meeting notes from within Outlook into OneNote. 

 

I know how to create the meeting notes and agendas in Confluence but I was wondering if there was a way that we can have a similar connection between Outlook and Confluence.  

 

Note:  I am not looking to migrate existing content from Confluence to Outlook... just new pages going forward.

 

Thanks & Best Regards,

 

Brian

I am also curious about this same question.  We have meetings in Outlook with dozens of participants.  I would like to be able to add them all to the Attendees, as well as using the body of the meeting into a field in the Meeting Notes template.

Hi @Brian Hankey

Just came across your question and I think we have the perfect fit for you!

The Meeting Notes App "Meetical Meetings for Confluence" supports Server (Data Center in Beta) and Cloud.

Main Features:

  • The Outlook Calendar Add-in which comes with Meetical allows you to create Meeting Minutes and Meeting Notes fast and easy, directly from Outlook Web or Outlook Desktop. 
  • The page and calendar event get linked to each other in order to access and find the agenda and minutes fast.
  • Any updates to your events / meetings are automatically propagated to the Confluence page. 
  • Meetical also groups recurring meetings under a nice overview page and helps you stay organized with consistent page naming, complete content, and professional meeting minutes. 
  • New Meeting Templates are built-in and you can also use your own completely customized Meeting Templates.

Please note, Office 365 (or hybrid setup) is required to run Meetical. 

Greetings,

Lukas

 

P.S.: Also available for Google Calendar as Confluence Chrome Extension

Hi just tried to link the add-in - this is a paid app?

I'm looking for a similar solution.

During Atlassian Summit I went to the booth of Yasoon (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/vendors/1211722/yasoon) and they have given me a preview of a solution in which you will be able to create a Confluence page from Outlook, so keep tuned!

I will post an update when I see the solution in the Marketplace or when it will be possible to join a beta program of the solution.

Hi Koen,

thanks for stopping by our booth at Summit :) 

See my update below!

Agreed.  Would love a button in Outlook to make a Confluence page from the meeting invite.

Outlook Calendars can be integrated into Confluence using Outlook Calendars for Confluence

The button to make a Confluence page from the meeting invite may be a suggestion to the creators ;-)

I saw some products like OCC but what I am really looking for is for it to be natively built into Confluence so that we don't have to purchase an additional license for something.

Agreed, and bumped.

We need this functionality yesterday.

There's a great Jira add-in for Outlook, but not for Confluence. Is this on the roadmap? If so, ETA? May I please alpha test?

I too would like to know if there is a way to accomplish this. I'm looking at ways to move away from OneNote and would love to implement this type of feature, as I rely heavily on the Outlook->OneNote integration for meeting notes. 

Outlook has an addin for OneNote to create meeting notes page.  this is what I would like to see for confluence.  currently I just copy the onenote page into confluence

Hi everyone,

Thanks to Koen for stopping by our booth @ Summit.

We now have the app in the Marketplace, right over here: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1220972/outlook-meetings-for-confluence?hosting=cloud&tab=overview

Please note: This is a first version that only works with Confluence Cloud + Office 365. We plan on adding Confluence Server & DataCenter in a month or so, make sure to watch the app for updates! We are very eager to hear actual feedback, please be blunt!

@Tobias Viehweger Thanks for the great news.  Our Confluence version is a Server version, therefore we will have to wait.

 

Please do keep us posted on the status of the server version.

 

Gruss Gott!

Brian
