What is MeisterNote?

MeisterNote is an online documentation tool that helps you and your team create and organize beautiful content collaboratively. This superbly-designed addition to the Meister Suite boasts feature set that can significantly improve communication, organization and productivity in your company, or even in your daily life.

Like the other tools in the Meister Suite, MindMeister and MeisterTask, we’ve put huge emphasis on making MeisterNote as beautiful and user-friendly as possible. None of the features you don’t need, all of the ones you do, delivered with our trademark sleek design and unrivaled simplicity. This means that, on the surface at least, MeisterNote looks very much like a writing app, but its smart collaboration features and seamless integrations make it so much more than a notepad. Or, in the words of Meister CEO and Co-founder, Michael Hollauf: 

The incredible design and versatility of MeisterNote drives information creation and sharing into an extraordinary new dimension: it’s a powerful writing tool with your team at its heart. 

What is MeisterNote for?

When it comes to documentation, the sheer scale of information makes it difficult to keep an overview. You might send updates to your company via email, keep project information in Google Docs, save your team’s knowledge base using an online wiki tool or, less conveniently still, on printed pages. The true value of MeisterNote is that it brings all your written information into one, beautiful place. 

MeisterNote was built to be flexible, with applications for a wide range of personal and professional use cases that meet your requirements exactly: whether you’re working alone or in a team.

Find out all about MeisterNote’s many potential use cases on our website.

Although you could theoretically use MeisterNote for anything you needed to write, initial discussions with users show that the tool is particularly well-suited to knowledge bases (wikis), internal communication, project documentation, meeting management and personal note taking. We’ll look at the key use cases below.

Use MeisterNote for Everything.

Knowledge Bases, Notes and More…

Knowledge Bases. Your Organization, Organized.

By organizing our need-to-know documentation with MeisterNote, we hope to reduce our onboarding process from three months to two weeks.

Julian Loth, simcargo

Learning new information is really only one side of the story: if you can’t easily recall details or share data about your company, you may be suffering from one of the biggest problems in the modern business world: knowledge loss. This phenomenon is a major cause of inefficiency for teams in different areas of expertise. If it takes a long time to find the information you need, or if you can’t find it at all, the logical consequence is that you will be less effective at your job. 

We built MeisterNote to help companies improve information flows and minimize knowledge loss. Alongside a sleek, streamlined interface, the tool boasts a range of impressive features to help you create and manage your knowledge base effectively. Workspaces will help you organize your documents, templates and content blocks enable rapid content creation, while note interlinking and a powerful search function make life easy for people hunting for information.

Read this informative blog article to learn more about knowledge bases and how you can use MeisterNote to create yours.

Internal Communication

Since we began sharing company updates with MeisterNote, we’ve noticed significant improvements in employee engagement and company knowledge.

Maximilian Benjamim-Graf, Head of Customer Success, Meister

We’ve probably all worked at companies in which internal communication has been a mess. The symptoms of the affliction are usually pretty obvious: confusion about company aims and directives, a steady stream of email updates that go straight to the trash, or total radio silence from management. Of course, a quick look at any popular job page will reveal that plenty of companies are looking for internal communication specialists to engage better with their teams. However, getting your message across doesn’t need to be anywhere near as expensive: that’s because you can use MeisterNote as your internal communication tool. 

MeisterNote offers a simple, effective new approach to internal communication. Not only do note watching and notification features make it easy to let your team know when an update is published, you can edit information in real time to ensure the most up-to-date content is always at hand. If you’re feeling brave, you can give your team commenting access to your newsletters, updates and more to promote two-way communication – right where the action happens.

Project Documentation

Throughout the entire development process for MeisterNote, we’ve used MeisterNote itself – in its various beta stages – to bring our team together. Requirements have been centralized, to-do lists organized, and our project progress is now visible for the entire Meister team, not just one department.

Mara Münzing, Product Marketing Manager, MeisterNote

Project documentation facilitates project success, although when it works properly, you tend not to notice it. It is the project teams that aren’t working properly that all ask the same question: What are we meant to be doing? A lack of clarity regarding project work may occur due to one or more of the following factors: poor planning, inadequate communication or substandard organization. However, by using MeisterNote as a project documentation tool, you can counteract all three.

You can discover best practices for project documentation with MeisterNote in this blog post.

With its simple, yet powerful network of workspaces, notes and sub-notes, MeisterNote helps you keep a watchful eye on your project paperwork. Flexibility is key: with the tool, you can streamline the storage of important information in any way you like. Better yet, smooth integrations with MeisterTask add a new dimension to your project management journey.

Meeting Management

MeisterNote has changed our onboarding seminars for the better. We spend less time handing out information and more time engaging productively with new team members.

Rabea Thies, Head of People & Culture, Meister

Meetings. Whether you love them or hate them, the necessity for us to spend time away from our desks to talk to colleagues and clients is a constant across many key industries. In-person and virtual meetings suck out time from our working lives: 35% of the work time of an average middle-management employee is spent in them. 

However, help is at hand. By using MeisterNote as your meeting management tool, you can make meetings in your company faster, more relevant and more productive. Use the tool’s template feature to create agenda plans that can be adapted quickly for each meeting, then invite others to collaborate so they have a better understanding of meeting topics before, during and after the event. You’ll also have a sleek storage for historic meeting minutes, so you can easily go back and check on what was discussed.

Personal Note Taking

The most impressive element of MeisterNote is the ability to create awesome-looking text quickly and easily.

Barbara Wohlsein, Senior Content Writer, Meister

Whatever you do in life, structured note-taking, aided by the right tool, helps you manage your time, thoughts and personal to-dos: a process known as self-management. While there are many ways to achieve effective self-management, most methods will involve noting down information so that you can focus fully on the task at hand. This is where MeisterNote comes into play: a simple, intuitive self-management tool that will help you create attractive, organized and professional personal notes in minutes.

When you’re making your personal notes, features such as distraction-free writing mode and checkable to-do list content blocks help you achieve your goals. If you need to bring in content from elsewhere, file attachments and media embeds allow you to collate information in one place. MeisterNote gives you the freedom to get more out of what’s in your head: write down key points to remember or research, make sense of complex or broad topics, or deal with large amounts of information with our wonderful personal note-taking tool.

We’ve written a helpful guide with tips for effective self-management, which you can find on our blog.

Key Features

Whenever we create a product, we think hard about which features are genuinely necessary for a productive experience with our tools and which ones are only going to confuse the interface. If you’re already familiar with some of MeisterNote’s competitor projects, especially the “all-in-one” productivity solutions, you may already have some experience with what this looks like. 

The Perfect Documentation Tool.

It’s so much more than a Notepad.

Features for Collaborating

If you’re working in a team, you’ll want information flows to be as quick and simple as possible. In addition to endless options for creating beautiful notes, we’ve worked hard to create an environment that makes sharing, collaborating and working together on content just as simple. Check out MeisterNote’s key collaboration features to see how the tool can work wonders for your team: 

  • Collaborative editing. Invite your team to draft materials together, publish them and keep them up-to-date.

  • Roles and permissions. Share updates with the whole company or specific teams using customizable permissions settings.
  • Instant sync. Anything you share is updated automatically for all users, ensuring everyone stays on the same page—no more information silos.
