Are you tired of asking people to add agenda items to a doc? Friday makes collecting an agenda easy; we do the work for you.
Save time compiling agendas
The team meeting agenda template can be baked into workplace tools you already use, like Slack, Teams, and project management apps.
Easily measure and track results over time. Charts & graphs will help you figure out if things are trending in the right direction.
With Friday, you can customize every aspect of the team meeting process (questions, reminders, notifications, and much more).
Weekly Team Meeting Agenda FAQ
Friday can help lay the groundwork for better meetings.
Why should I collect an agenda before team meetings?
Broadly speaking, there are two categories of activities in a meeting. Information sharing and collaborating. Information sharing is the basic transmission of information and most people think these meetings are a waste of time.
If you collect an agenda before a meeting, you can walk into the meeting with a bedrock and foundation for what will be discussed. It also gives each person the space to reflect and share instead of having a few extraverted people talking the entire time.
"I'd rather use Google Docs or Microsoft Word"
You can certainly use another provider to collect agenda items, but you will need to glue together ad-hoc tools and processes and the failure rate will be high. Friday makes this process predictable by automating as much as possible!
For example, people on your team will need to set a calendar reminder to fill out the document. If they don't, you will need to manually remind them. This is a poor use of your time. A computer should handle this instead. Friday streamlines this process with our completely customizable workflow builder.
How can Friday help me automate agenda creation?
If you create a free Friday account, you can configure and customize a workflow to automate as much of the process as possible. We will handle notifications, reminders, prompts, and we will even automatically create reports and surface trends over time.
Do you help me take notes in a meeting too?
No, that's not our focus. Our focus is on laying the groundwork for better real-time conversations by handling things asynchronously.
What questions should I ask?
If you use Friday, you can pick from a variety of prompts (open-ended, emoji, sentiment, numeric, and more). These structured prompts make it easy for your team to respond.
We recommend asking the following questions before a team meeting:
What would you like to discuss in this meeting?
Current Status (on track, in progress, stuck)
Anything else you'd like to share?
This doesn't have to be rocket science. Collect agenda items, share a high-level sense of progress, and relay other updates that might be useful to the rest of the group.
With that being said, Friday is completely customizable, so you can tailor it to your needs!
How much does this cost?
At Friday, we have a free plan with no trial restrictions that you can signup for here. This should give you a great idea of how things work. We have a premium tier that starts at $6/mo per person.
The good news is that if you use Friday, you will dramatically decrease the amount of time you spend in regular update meetings, which gives your team more time for deep work.
Do you integrate into my calendar?
Not yet! In the future, you will be able to trigger workflows based on calendar events (i.e. - trigger a workflow two hours before a meeting)
