Link a decision in meeting notes to the decision log

I just want to create a decision in the meeting notes and have the decision link to the decision log so I can see all of them.  I tried @mention, date, decision  but I don't see it linking to the decision log after I publish the meeting notes

Hi @Edward Abbati,

It was discussed in this thread as well. The Decisions Log uses the Page Properties Report Macro to display information. The Decisions Blueprint includes a Page Properties Macro in order to collect the information about the decision.

Thanks,

Hello Edward,

The decisions in the Meeting Notes template in Cloud are separate from the decisions made using the Decision Template. Only those made using the template will show in the Decisions Log.

There's no way to aggregate the decisions made in meeting notes for now, but we have a feature request below that you can vote on for this:

Please also submit your feedback regarding Decisions using this short survey, which will go to our development team.

Thank you for your understanding.

Regards,

Shannon

"There's no way to aggregate the decisions made in meeting notes for now," - how come? (((

Hi Irina,

There are two types of Decisions in Confluence at this moment:

  1. In the classic version of the editor, there is a template called the Decision Template. The Decision Template would create a Decisions Log automatically. This log displays all pages that have been created using this template.
  2. In the new version of the editor, the Meeting Notes Template also has a feature called Decisions, but this is separate from the original feature. Therefore, these decisions aren't included in the Decisions Log because they aren't pages created using the Decision Template.

I do understand that it's a bit confusing because of the new feature, but since the new editor is being gradually rolled out and improved, there is not yet a feature to aggregate those types of decisions.

This new editor will be continuously improved, so there is still potential to have functionality like this. For that reason, I would encourage you to vote on the feature request, and fill out the survey that I shared above. It will help to improve that feature based on how Confluence users intend to use decisions in their workflow.

I hope that helped but do let me know if you have any questions about that.

Regards,

Shannon

Thank you, Shannon, I voted already. If would be good to have a macro which will allow to aggregate decisions from the Meeting notes.

Irina,

Thank you for your vote! It would definitely be good to have, for sure!

Take care, and have a pleasant rest of your week.

Where is the Decision Log located? I understand it is created "automatically" the first time the Decision template is used, but i can't find the Decision Log anywhere?

Help?

Hi @Nadine_Miner,

At the time of this thread, the Decisions Log would indeed have been created automatically and could be accessed from the sidebar. I tested it before I wrote back Edward back in August, but it seems like something changed since then.

This will need further investigation, as it could be a new bug. Could you please raise a new question specifically about that issue, and then tag me on your question? Then I can continue my investigation and reply to you directly there. I'm just trying to avoid using an older thread in case other users are having the same issue. I want them to be able to see that it's a recent problem.

Thanks again, and I'll let you know what I find out!

Shannon

Hello again, @Nadine_Miner!

I've just discovered your thread from Thursday:

I'll be following-up with you there, as we've done some further investigation on this in the meantime.

Thank you for your patience!

Regards,

Shannon
