Hi all!

We're concluding our month-long look at managing construction projects with the Meister Suite by sharing our first ever MeisterNote template. This template includes all the documentation for the Three Clouds Home Construction Project - a project for creating a high-quality, sustainable home within five months.

This one source of truth for all documentation includes:

  • Project timeline
  • Work breakdown structure
  • Stakeholder org chart
  • Scope statement
  • Permit
  • Contract
  • Agreements
  • Bidding documents

Note Highlights

@Zsuzsanna Kensell has embedded the stakeholders mind map and WBS org chart in the MeisterNote. This means that important information is accessible at a glance for all collaborators. By embedding the mind map rather than attaching a link, Zsuzsi allows stakeholders to browse entire maps and charts without leaving MeisterNote. More complex spreadsheets (for project schedules) are attached as a link in content blocks and accessible with the click of a button.

In this note, Zsuzsi links directly to bids in the Bidding Project Board. This allows stakeholders to visualize progress in the project and read important bidding details from within MeisterNote.

Get this Template!

If you'd like to explore this note yourself, please comment below and I will share the template with you! (Thank you external sharing 😍)! As this is the first full Suite set of templates we've shared, I'd love to hear what you think -

    Would love to explore this note. Maybe i'll get some new views, points, I didn't think of so far! 😊

    And a big thank you to @Zsuzsanna Kensell for creating this template!

    Hi @Miša

    Thanks for sharing the file. 👍️

    I find the representation very good.👌 I think I will use this template in one of my ending projects. Can imagine that with this template I can make a good summary about the whole project with all valid contracts, permits, costs, etc. and some before and after pictures. Kind of a overview of the project.

    I personally, and this is my personal opinion, do not like to use the template during the ongoing process. I prefer to use MeisterTask for that. I think I'm more flexible with MT and can share tasks more specific if I have to.

    Thanks again for the template. It's great and will certainly use it.

    Best,

    Samuel

    Hey @Rooster McNugget,

    Thanks so much for your feedback! I agree that the template is strong in its overview of everything you need to plan a project. It'd also help centralize all information and all documents in one place.

    I think MeisterTask is also better for monitoring project progress, as you said, and perhaps in this case MeisterNote would achieve more simply as the single source of truth.

    Best,

    Hi All,

    I'm so happy to see you found these templates helpful! I also enjoyed the conversations, and snapshots of your product usage in the individual threads when @Miša shared the templates.

    Please feel free to share your version of the templates with us and how you implemented them! I'm always looking for new ways and perspectives to use all 3 of the products together!

    Happy New Year! 🎉 🎊

    Hey @Miša

    I'd like to have a look at this template also! While we're not in construction - we do manage projects and are interested in what ideas you've come up with!

    Thanks!

    Hi @PeterM ! I'm pleased to hear you'll take a look. I think templates directly from your industry are always nice to read; however, project management templates from any industry will of course have applicability to yours too!

    I've shared the note with you.

    Let me know what you think 😀

    Miša,

    It's very good - thanks! A lot of what I expected to see.

    My biggest ask for the Miester Suite is to have a project in Note and a project in Tasks that are integrated.

    At the end you have tasks that are yours - are they linked to a project or are you just the owner of them?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi @Miša!! I would also like to have a copy of the template. I am teaching project management to the juniors at the place I work, and I think I can learn things from your template, as I did from your presentation above. Thanks!!

    Hi @Idelin Molinas and welcome to the Community!

    Of course - I've just added you to the note.

    You'll also find some other templates in there. For example, there's one for education (called Semester 1). Although this is for a school class, you might find some ideas for teaching juniors!

    Let me know what you think.

    Best,

    Miša
