Magic Minutes

Meeting solution for businesses of all sizes

4.8/5 (49 reviews)

Magic Minutes overview

Magic Minutes is a cloud-based meeting solution which helps small to large organisations prepare for meetings, take minutes and chase actions. Key features in the free version include agenda creation, live minute taking, action progress tracking, and reporting. The paid version is only £12 ($15) pm.

The application lets organisers set up a meeting in advance, take live minutes with a 'canned text' helper, email minutes and actions instantly and record action progress. It also allows for 'Follow On' meetings to be created easily with the same agenda, attendees and actions copied across.

The dashboard enables users to search, as well as filter upcoming/previous conferences and view related details such as type or duration. Supervisors can make notes, customize the sender list, publish meetings, and send a copy of minutes via email after discussions.

Magic Minutes integrates with third-party platforms such as Trello, Slack, Todoist, Podio, Wunderlist, Asana, Google Tasks, and Office 365, enabling users to share information and manage tasks within a group. Managers can use the platform to create and update to-do lists, review past meetings and connect with attendees for discussions. Magic Minutes allows administrators to send manual, as well as automated notifications to members for recurring meetings.

Magic Minutes brings an overriding structure to all levels of meetings within a business.

Pros
Ease of set up and extremely undemanding in terms of meeting preparation. All participants can load up their points of discussion in one area to help a meeting flow smoothly and maximise time available. Historical data from previous meetings can be found and utilised quickly. Magic Minutes can be applied to all levels of meetings whether a 1 to 1 appraisal or full board meeting, keeping discussion focused and distributing actions to participants as the meeting progresses. Once the meeting closes everyone knows what they need to do, without the onus still being on the meeting organiser. The software gives an overriding framework to all meetings, helping structure, efficiency, and vitally output from them.

Cons
Loading text data within the software can sometimes jar with the internal set up and can take a little time to format correctly. Only really an initial issue, as once you've used a couple of times you learn to pre-format to suit. Very little else not to like.

Response from Magic Minutes


Thanks Ian - and I am pleased that you see it being useful in all sorts of different meetings.

You're right the formatting is worth getting used to. You'l notice the new version which is out now is much easier with this.

We are continuously working to add new features to Magic Minutes so hopefully we'll get those scores up to 5 stars on all categories soon!

Making Meetings Efficient

Used weekly for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

Directors advised me to look at this software with a view to improving the efficiency & effectiveness of our meetings. As an SME, time is important; as is relevant and accurate information. Impressed with the basic product, and have been providing feedback to the developers to improve some functionality & interface elements. They have been incredibly helpful, and advised different ways of handling meeting scenarios. Definitely impressed with the product so far, and have now purchased the Premium subscription to access more features. Started to roll this out to other managers, and it may become our default Meeting software across the company.

Pros
Simple and easy to use from the start. Dashboard shows current / historic Meetings & Actions. Using the timings for each agenda item can help structure your meeting and plan future timings. Flexible to change date/time, attendees, agenda items etc. Quick to create Actions and follow-on meetings. Automatic rolling forward of open Actions to the next meeting. Icon-driven menus to add/insert agenda items, restructuring the numbering for you. Users can add comments to their actions, as well as marking them as complete. Information is brought forward to the next meeting, speeding up the process. Minutes & Actions are emailed to attendees. Premium version also allows Action reminders & automated sending of Agenda in advance. Minutes are intended to be created live, but can be created retrospectively in the event of IT/WIFI issues. Meeting open & closed times can be entered manually (if not live). Developers take your feedback seriously, and improve the product in its functionality and user-interface.

Cons
Can't (yet) access your attendee contacts to make changes to names / email addresses - but the developers are looking at this.

Response from Magic Minutes


Brilliant feedback Joanne, thanks. I'm glad it is slowly becoming the standard in the firm - having all your meetings and actions in one place makes it much easier to see where the overloads are and then offer help.

Rhea Alton

A system that solved a huge administration problem for us as busy managing directors

Used weekly for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2018-01-23
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
With Magic Minutes we can pull together all advance information for meetings in one place - with just a request email to each individual person supplying the necessary information. It stops dozens of emails being sent - and lost - and records the essential information all in one place. The system allows for a meeting to be fully recorded as it happens and actions can be created not only for people within the meetings but for others in the company - and these are then emailed automatically as soon as the meeting is closed. We can then chase these actions and ensure they are acted upon with reminder emails from within the Magic Minutes system. The time the system saves us is more than we could ever have envisaged, and it ensures that our staff are on top of everything we ask them to do. It also means that minutes are automatically recorded, meaning we do not have to transcribe minutes and never miss anything that has been said or discussed.

Cons
We would like to be able to incorporate the software into our other systems so that our information was automatically stored in existing files.

Response from Magic Minutes


Rhea - great that you are getting so much benefit from it. The good news is that we have an API in the development pipeline, so the idea of linking to other systems is on the way!

Making meetings accountable

Review Source: Capterra

Magic Minutes has dramitcally changed the way I run meetings and has made immense improvement to the output from meetings. Meetings are easy to structure, run and get genuine results.

Pros
I like the most the ease with which actionable and accountable minutes from meetings are produced and then can be picked up again in a follow on meeting.

Cons
The dashboard isnt that intuitive however a recent refresh has greatly improved this and I no longer have this issue.

Response from Magic Minutes


Thanks Brian - great to hear it has made such an impact on your meetings. I hope your colleagues see the benefits and start using it for their meetings too!

Magic Minutes Review

Magic minutes is a great business tool to help keep the team on task

Pros
The action reminders that are sent out each week are great. They help you keep on top of tasks and also remind you to upload any reports that are due. The link in the reminder that takes you straight to the log in page is great.

Cons
It doesn’t remember my username like the earlier versions did. I think this was a good feature and speaking to other team members they also get caught out with the correct log in.

Response from Magic Minutes


Thank you for your comments Mark and I am glad you are finding the software useful. The reminder emails are one of the main features that prompted us to write it in the first place.

You are right about the log in as we have beefed up the security compared to earlier versions (we use AuthO now) and this means logging in more often. Regular users though have less problem as it remembers you if you log in every day or two.
