You don’t need a team to get started, but the value of Hugo increases as your team grows, so you can collaborate on meeting agendas, share notes and receive the benefit of centralized meeting notes and agendas.
Once your Hugo account is ready, simply click on your profile picture and use the Invite Teammates action. Hugo will automatically scan your calendar for other people in your company that you usually meet with and suggest them to you.
You can share meeting notes with anyone. That includes people both inside and external to your organization, as well as other Hugo users at your company.
Beyond sharing, there are many additional benefits if your team members are Hugo users too. If you want to collaborate on meeting notes for example or be able to @mention team members in notes, they will need to be Hugo users.
We invest heavily in state of the art security and privacy infrastructure, ensuring that your data is behind firewalls, encrypted and only accessible to your team (and members of your team based on the permissions you set). We are also GDPR compliant and Privacy Shield certified.

With a deep bench of third party integrations, Hugo works with the rest of your software stack so that information from meetings can be pushed out to other tools.
Hugo uses your calendar as a source of truth for who you and your team are meeting. Instead of using a system of folders like other note apps, Hugo will store your notes against the people attending your meetings and the companies that they work for.
Hugo doesn't replace your existing tools. The value of Hugo is that it connects all the tools your team is already using for meeting process. For meeting notes, Hugo will beat your generic, personal note-taking tool or notebook and will complement department-specific solutions like your CRM. Hugo is better at ensuring meeting information breaks through departmental silos and that the information actually gets actioned - right in the apps used by different departments in your business.
Hugo team members are able to connect their calendars, contribute to agendas, write meeting notes and share and action insights with the rest of the team. They can also use the Hugo web application to browse and search for meeting insights across contacts, companies or #tags. We, therefore, recommend inviting anyone in your business that attends meetings or would get value from other team members' meeting notes to your Hugo team.
