Share Searchable Transcripts

Once Supernormal records a meeting, automated transcripts are generated using advanced speech-to-text. These provide a searchable record of exactly what was discussed. Transcripts can be referenced later when following up on action items, revisiting decisions, gathering context, or onboarding new team members. Search makes it easy to find key points.

Supernormal lets you share transcripts with other participants or keep them private. You can toggle sharing permissions in your Account Settings based on your meeting sensitivity.

Extract Highlights and Insights

In addition to detailed transcripts, Supernormal's AI notetaker also shares notes after each meeting. These notes pull out the important discussion points, decisions, and action items from the meeting so you don’t have to search through the transcript. Notes are fully customizable and can be formatted based on type of meeting and you can prompt them for specific insights and questions to create new sections with precisely the information you’re looking for.

Maintain Searchable Meeting Records

Recordings capture important organizational knowledge discussed in meetings. This information often slipped away in the past. With Supernormal transcripts and recordings, it's now searchable and referenceable. Enable meeting recordings to build a knowledge base over time. Search records to uncover past conversations, decisions, and context. Supernormal makes meeting data just as useful and long-lasting as the other kinds of data we use in our day-to-day work.

Boost Accountability with Action Items Tracking

Supernormal's automated notes make it easy to extract action items from meetings and follow up on them. With assigned tasks tracked and visible, team members stay accountable. Important work that emerged in meetings gets completed. No more dropped balls after meetings!

Reasons to Record Your Meetings

Now that you know how Supernormal makes recording meetings easy, let's explore some of the top reasons to hit record:

  • Accountability: Distribute recordings to stakeholders so everyone stays aligned on what happened and knows what they need to do.
  • Clarity: Revisiting recordings reduces miscommunications. With an exact transcript, there's no fuzzy recollections or hearsay.
  • Learning: Meeting recordings create searchable databases of organizational knowledge. Enable learning by allowing teams to reference past conversations.
