Fellow vs. Google Docs

See why users choose Fellow over Google Docs to build and collaborate on meeting agendas, track action items, exchange feedback, and move work forward.

Trusted and loved by the world’s best teams

Unlike Google Docs, Fellow was purpose-built to help teams have more productive meetings

In the same way that you wouldn’t use Google Sheets as your CRM at scale, it doesn’t make sense to use Google Docs for your meeting agendas. Fellow is the perfect tool to organize and collaborate on meeting agendas, track action items, exchange feedback, and more.

Pro Tip

Fellow takes the best parts of Google Docs — collaborative note taking and note versioning — and adds to it a full suite of features that are specifically centered on meeting productivity.

Fellow was purpose-built for teams and their meetings, Google Docs was not.

The entire platform is designed to ensure that you, and your team, have more engaging and productive meetings from the moment you sign up.

No manipulation of a doc or hacking together solutions required.

Aggregated action items across meetings

While it’s true that Google Docs allows you to assign action items to folks inside the doc, there’s no way to aggregate your to-dos across multiple docs.

Fellow tracks all of your action items from every meeting you have and organizes them for you in a central location.

  • “Fellow solves three key problems around running meetings. First, creating the agenda. Then, with the ability to take notes, meeting management becomes much simpler. And finally, tracking the action items that come out of every meeting. Having everything in Fellow means we can track it and follow up on it.
