Note-Taking Systems (2022) {{ currentPage ? currentPage.title : "" }}


An explanation of our team’s note-taking systems.


  • - Used for keeping various living lists for our team:

    • Individual “to-do” lists for each team member

    • Vendor lists

    • Lockbox locations and codes

  • Slack - Uses for internal conversations separated by #topic. We are trialling Google Spaces to replace this (2022).

How these systems work

  • Team to-do lists work by:

    • being able to be sorted by importance and priority

    • any member of the team being able to assign tasks to any others

    • using the “email to board” functionality to keep tasks from falling through the cracks

  • Slack works by:

    • Keeping internal team conversations out of email and text

    • Filtering by #topic

    • Allowing external vendors to be added to topics where needed
