Being efficient during the MDT
1. Recording a meeting
2. Use Live captions
3. Meeting minutes
Guests cannot access meeting recordings via a link to the recording on Stream. If you want to share the recording with them, the person who recorded the meeting will need to download it from Stream and upload it in the files section of a Teams channel that your guests have access to. Click here for more information. Please check the information governance in place for your organisation regarding recordings.
Be aware that Stream has been temporarily disabled across NHSmail and is currently undergoing review. If you need Stream and are on NHSmail, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. The team will review your case and enable Stream on a case-by-case basis.
If you want external guests to view the meeting minutes, add OneNote as a tab to a Teams channel that your guests have access to (click here to see how to). Then use this shared notebook to take meeting minutes and point your guests with a link to the relevant OneNote page.
For every participant to be able to add to the meeting notes in real-time, add a OneNote notebook to the Teams channel that you’re using for the meeting (click here to see how to). Then you can share a link to the meeting’s OneNote page in the invite (click here to see how to). This will allow all participants to view and edit the shared notes. This way, participants can also prepare for the meeting upfront using the meeting’s OneNote page.
When screen sharing in a meeting, be aware that the resolution in Teams is not configured to allow for diagnosis of any sort. We therefore don’t recommend sharing images via screen share. Images should be viewed through image viewing applications rather than via screen sharing.
Meeting participants from another tenant may not have the same functionalities due to local configuration.
