While some meetings created in Instant Agenda might be used only once, most of our users find that many are recurring. With recurring meetings come the recurring topics that get brought up each time the meeting is run. Creating the same topics over and over can be frustrating, tedious, and embarrassing if you forget to add one. To help allay these concerns, we have added the ability to mark a topic as recurring.

When the meeting is ended, any topics marked as recurring that were discussed during the meeting will be automatically re-created and added back to the agenda, ready for the next occurrence of the meeting. It’s important to note that only the topic description, details, and time span are copied. Any notes, action items, or decisions associated with the topic will be kept with the original topic and not duplicated.

Topics can only be made recurring by meeting moderators. This can be done in one of two ways. First, when a moderator is adding a new topic or editing an existing open topic, there is an option to set the topic as recurring:

topic edit dialog
 

Second, from the command menu for a topic, there is an option that will toggle the recurring state of the topic:

menu item to toggle recurring
 

Recurring topics are indicated in the current agenda with an icon as shown here:

We hope that the ability to mark topics as recurring makes your meeting preparation quicker and easier.
