Agenda Section Options
Agenda Section Functionality
BoardCloud divides agenda items into sections. An agenda section acts as a placeholder for items on the agenda.
There are a number of actions which can be performed on each agenda section. Below is an image showing the available functions per agenda item.
Add Agenda Sub-section allows for sub-sections to be added to the current section. There is no practical limit to the levels of agenda sub-sections that can be created.
The Upload Documents option attaches documents of various types to the current agenda section.

Create a New Meeting Document
Clicking this option allows for a new file to be created within the meeting, without having to externally create upload a new document. New documents create inside BoardCloud can be edited directly in the meeting. This gives company secretaries the option of adding content to a meeting agenda that does not exist outside BoardCloud.
For example, suppose an agenda section needs a short introductory paragraph to explain some details. Normally, this would require that the intro text be typed into Microsoft Word and then saved as a document, which would then be imported into the agenda.
Using the New Document option enables the company secretary to originate the document directly within the agenda section.

This option allows for the entire section and its contents to be hidden from meeting members. Excluded items are also excluded from the board packet when it is published.
