Why are Agenda Item Fields so Important?

Here are some reasons why using agenda item fields are beneficial to running an efficient meeting and keeping your attendees informed:

  • Ease of Viewing Agenda. Using item fields allows viewers to easily overview the topic or item at hand.
  • Ease of Searching. This searchable archive for agenda items will save time for anyone needing information on current or past agendas.
  • Ease of Taking Minutes. If you use the Recommendations field for Action Items, the contents of this field can be added to your meeting minutes with a simple click of a button and edited as needed.
