This year we will be using a google form to file reports on each meeting. Although you can fill out the form on a mobile phone it is strongly recommended that one member of the team bring a tablet or laptop to type notes during the meeting. Alternatively notes can be taken by hand during the meeting and entered in the form later. However if you do this be sure to print out the form to refer to so you collect all the needed information.
