Skype for Business, One Drive for Business, and OneNote work together to create a complete record of our team meetings.

We've just finished a meeting, so I’ll stop recording, open the Recording Manager and I can see that it’s still processing, so I’ll wait for that to finish...

I’ll just minimize the meeting window… And I’ll save it to OneDrive for Business.

Here’s the OneNote I created at the beginning of the meeting.

Skype for Business automatically pulled in the meeting title, the list of attendees, and our agenda.

So all we had to do was take notes.

Skype for Business even copied in shared files from the meeting, like the PowerPoint deck I presented.

Finally, I’ll add a link to the recording. All done.

Now, if anyone has a question about information shared at the meeting — all they have to do is refer to the OneNote!
