How do I create an agenda in Agenda Online?
You can create an agenda from scratch, or use a template to expedite the process. Part of our set-up process for a new client is to create agenda templates of your most common meeting types from your previous agendas. Once the meeting is created your Submitters are able to submit their agenda items to the meetings in the system.
I need to move an agenda item, what is the process?
If you need to rearrange your agenda items, drag and drop them to arrange and the system will automatically renumber them. If you move a parent item it will take any sub-items with it.
How do I publish an agenda? Will the public see the agenda?
When your agenda has been finalized you are able to send it through an approval workflow (optional). When it has completed the workflow, the Meeting Manager clicks a button to Publish. The agenda is immediately released to the Board, Staff, and the Public.

All users will have the ability to view and print all public agendas and agenda items.
Can I add exhibit attachments to my agenda items?
Yes, while you can add essentially any type of attachment, we recommend you limit your uploads to pdf documents to ensure that your authenticated users and the public can easily access them. There is no limit to the number of attachments per agenda or the size of each attachment. You can also drag and drop attachments at any time to reorder them.
Can I reuse my agenda items created before we started using Agenda Online?
Absolutely, with Agenda Online there is no need to recreate agenda items. You can simply cut and paste into the item field for items created outside of Agenda Online. Submitters can also create item templates for frequently submitted items to save time.
Can I use Agenda Online for my organization’s Committee meetings?
