I recently discovered the meeting notes template in Confluence (I'm using 5.8.13) and I'm wondering what the best way to use it is? I see two possibilities for recurring meetings. First, you could create a new page for each new meeting or second you could create one page and then edit and update that same page for each new meeting.
Does anyone have any best practices or ideas on how to best use this template?
I would recommend creating a new page for each meeting, and setting the heading of the page to include the meeting text. Another recommendation is usually to nest these pages under a "meeting notes" page to keep everything neat and tidy in your confluence space.
so if you copy the recent page for the new meeting, you do not use tasks in Confluence?
Otherwise if you use them, an open task from the last meeting you will have twice (1 on the old page and 1 on the new).
Maybe you have a recommendation how to deal with this issue.
Thank you! Cheers, Anna
I wouldn't recommend to copy the pages and tasks for the reason you mentioned. You'll get duplicates of the tasks!
Instead, you could try this approach
This is also the meeting notes best practice for Confluence which we help automate with our App.

Also agree with Davin and Jeff. With a page for each meeting and a parent page that uses the children macro, creating a new page with the meeting template automatically displays each new meeting as a link on the parent page.
And if you utilize a calendar appointment for a meeting (and this is probably obvious...), using this approach you can place its link on the appointment to the specific meeting where it will display the invitees and agenda. Later a click on the same link will reveal the updated version which will be show notes/minutes and action items. For recurring meetings as in your case, just a link to the parent page may be preferred; attendees can click on the upcoming meeting link or past meetings as they desire.
