Extracting Trends from MS Word

Hello, we have years’ worth of Microsoft Word files containing meetings notes from various affinity groups. What tools can we use to extract key topics from each document and visualize trends over time from those Word documents?

For example, I have five years of notes (3-5 files per year) from meetings with the chefs, another set of files with the wait staff, etc. I want to extract relevant conversation topics and see what they’ve been talking about for five years, without having to read the 15-25 documents full of notes. Looking for a solution to extract the information for me.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you.

For prompts to use with ChatGPT for extracting the information, you can try of these steps:(e.g. chefs meetings)

1.“Generate a list of topics discussed in the meeting notes of the chefs’ affinity group over the past five years.”

2.“Provide insights on the evolution of topics within the chefs meetings from 2018 to 2023.”

3.“Create a line chart that visualizes how the discussion topics have changed over time in the affinity group meetings.”

4.“Suggest ways to improve the analysis of trends within the meeting notes.”

Hope can help you to some extent.
