The Meeting Types maintenance page is accessed by selecting Meeting Types from the Admin menu. It is only accessible to System Admin or Admin users.
Meeting types are assigned to a document, usually at the template level, and are used for the following purposes: 1. Filtering of data in the Reports module, Resolution Register and Action List. Therefore one of the main criteria to consider when deciding what meeting types to set up is what information that you want to extract from these areas. 2. As an Auto Insert Field e.g. to automatically enter the meeting type onto the front page of an agenda. 3. To set up minutes resolution number prefixes. 4. To exclude specified meeting documents from the Public Resolution Register. 5. To specify which users should be available for voting in a particular meeting i.e. Voting Users
An example list of meeting types is shown below.
