A Typical Process
The Beyond Agendas software is designed to accommodate a standard agenda preparation process. For example, the following steps are outlined to demonstrate how the software will be utilized with each step from beginning to completion and publishing of the agenda.

1. The Agenda Preparer creates a meeting within the system. (Meeting type, date, time, and location are defined)
2. After a meeting is created, a user logs into the system and create a new agenda item for that particular meeting.
3. The agenda item is created by selecting basic information, i.e. Meeting Type (Regular Meeting, Workshop Meeting, etc.), Agenda Section (Action Items, Discussion Items, etc.), Subject and Subject Description.
4. A Word document, pre-populated with basic memorandum fields, may be opened and completed by the user.
5. The user may also attach supporting PDF documents to this item. There is no limit on the number of attachments that can be included.
6. Once the user completes the memorandum, the item may be saved and/or submitted into workflow.
7. Once the item is submitted, it goes into the workflow system and the next approver receives an email that an item is waiting for their approval.
8. The approver can reject the item with a comment or approve it.
9. Once all items are approved, the Agenda Preparer can organize, modify or delete items and begin the assembly process.
10. Once the items are organized and finalized, a click of the button creates the agenda and minutes template.
11. A second button combines all of the documents, i.e. agenda, memos, and attachments into one PDF file.
12. The agenda along with its contents are published and become visible to the public on the agency’s web site. The contents are published where one item at a time can be viewed or the complete agenda packet can be downloaded.
13. Once the minutes are completed and approved by the governing body, this document can simply be published and viewed by the public.
