Integration with task apps

MinuteMe allows action items created in your meetings to integrate with your daily task apps. With these integrations, you can sync your assigned “action items” in MinuteMe with “tasks” in the third-party apps.

MinuteMe allows you to integrate with:

This feature is available for both Basic and Plus plans, and all team members can configure these integrations. You can manage your integrations on your Profile & settings page accessed via your avatar from the left navigation menu.

Google Tasks


Google Tasks is a personal type of task app that doesn’t have the concept of an assignee - i.e. all tasks are assigned to you, the list is only visible to you and you cannot assign or reassign tasks to anyone else.
When there is a new action item added in MinuteMe, a task is automatically created within the Google Task list that you’ve selected.

With Google Tasks integration you are able to:

  • Determine which meetings should have their action items sent to Google Tasks, and to which task list
  • Have tasks automatically created in Google Tasks when you or another person assigns action items to you in a synced meeting
  • Update action items in MinuteMe and have the changes automatically applied to Google Tasks (title, due date, completion status)
This is one-way sync integration, therefore, editing title, due date or completion status in Google Tasks will not update action items in MinuteMe.


To enable the Google Tasks integration

Go to the Integrations tab on your Profile & settings page accessed via your avatar from the left navigation menu.

  1. Click the Connect button to authorise your account. You will be prompted to login into your Google account and allow MinuteMe to access and update your tasks.

    connect button highlighted on integration tab

    MinuteMe will only access the tasks that it has created in your Google Tasks account.
  2. Configure the link between your meetings and the Google Tasks task lists.

    When an action item is assigned to you in a meeting, this setup is used to decide whether or not to send the action item to Google Tasks, and which task list the task should be created in, in Google Tasks.

    For the most basic setup, use the Default task list. If you choose a Default task list, every action item assigned to you, in every meeting you attend, will be created in this task list in Google Tasks.

    If you wish to be more specific, you can provide configuration or overrides for each meeting you attend. Here you can assign tasks for specific meetings to a specific task list, or you can turn the Sync off for an individual meeting.

    Select override meeting and google task list

    Task lists must be created within your Google Tasks account. Then click the cloud icon to refresh the list.

  3. Click Save & sync to save the changes and immediately perform a synchronisation. In a short while you should see the number of open action items being synchronised (if you have any open action items).


An action item assigned to in MinuteMe that is deleted in MinuteMe, will also be deleted from your Google Tasks.


Disconnecting Google Tasks

To prevent the synchronising of tasks for an individual meeting, you can add a Meeting override and turn off the Sync on/off slider.

To disconnect your Google Tasks account from MinuteMe and prevent any further synchronising of tasks, Click “Disconnect from Google Task“.
Disconnect button

On disconnecting from Google Tasks, MinuteMe will delete any tasks in Google Tasks that it created.

Microsoft To Do


Microsoft To Do is a personal type of task app that doesn’t have the concept of an assignee - i.e. all tasks are assigned to you, the list is only visible to you and you cannot assign or reassign tasks to anyone else.
When there is a new action item added in MinuteMe, a task is automatically created within the Microsoft To Do list that you’ve selected.

With Microsoft To Do integration, you are able to:

  • Determine which meetings should have their action items sent to Microsoft To Do, and to which task list
  • Have tasks automatically created in Microsoft To Do when you or another person assigns action items to you in a synced meeting
  • Automatically keep task title, due date and status (i.e. completed, uncompleted) in sync between MinuteMe and Microsoft To Do
This is two-way sync integration, therefore, changes applied to a task in Microsoft To Do will update the linked action item in MinuteMe within a few minutes.

The synchronisation from Microsoft To Do to MinuteMe will also copy the comments added to the task, into a Comment on the linked action item.

To enable the Microsoft To Do integration

Go to the Integrations tab on your Profile & settings page accessed via your avatar from the left navigation menu.

  1. Click the Connect button to authorise your account. You will be prompted to login into your Microsoft account and allow MinuteMe to access and update your tasks.

  2. Configure the link between your meetings and the Microsoft To Do task lists.

    When an action item is assigned to you in a meeting, this setup is used to decide whether or not to send the action item to Microsoft To Do, and which task list the task should be created in, in Microsoft To Do.

Asana


Coming in 2021

Asana is a team type of task app that means tasks can be assigned and reassigned to other users.

With a team type synchronisation, only one person needs to link up a specific meeting with Asana, and indicate which project the tasks should be created in.

With Asana integration, you will be able to:

  • Determine which meetings should have their action items sent to Asana, and to which project
  • Have tasks automatically created in Asana when you or another person assigns action items in a synced meeting
  • Automatically keep task title, assignee, due date and status (i.e. completed, uncompleted) in sync between MinuteMe and Asana
  • Identify tasks created in Asana by MinuteMe using our MinuteMe tag
This will be a two-way sync integration, therefore, changes applied to a task in Asana will update the linked action item in MinuteMe almost immediately.

The synchronisation from Asana to MinuteMe will also copy the Description added to the task, into a Comment on the linked action item.
