Many meetings you support aren't a one-off thing, so why create a project page every time you host the meeting? Now there's a new home for recurring meetings to centralize recordkeeping, registration, and reporting.
What's different about a meeting series?
Meeting Series pages are designed to host multiple meetings. They adapt the public page to clean up the display of past meetings, simplify the admin experience, and make it easy to create one URL or embedded frame for a specific meeting type.
Comments and videos are still available for public viewing, but are minimized to de-clutter your page:
When you're ready to move meetings into a meeting series, you can start by creating a new meeting series on the main admin dashboard under the "New Item" button:
If you already have a project that you'd like to change to a meeting series, click the "Change Type" button under the settings tab:
What's different about the Meeting Series Admin Page?
Meetings are front and center
The meeting series admin page focuses on your meetings on the very first tab. The "Meetings & Offline" tab is not shown, as your meeting controls move to the main tab:
Publishing and archiving the page - now in compact view
Meeting series pages automatically start out as published, and you can find the usual publishing and archiving controls under More Public Display Options here on the Meetings tab:
This will expand the publishing menu so that you can see the options to Return the meeting series to draft, or Close the meeting series to comments here:
*Note: Meeting series do not offer the ability to customize your page content beyond the description and header graphics. If you'd like that level of customization, the standard project page will be your go-to.
Add new meetings from the main tab
Once you've got your meeting series open, you can add new meetings easily from the main Meetings tab:
You can embed a meeting series, complete with live broadcasts and virtual public meetings. Just head to the Settings tab on the admin page (backend):
A new dialog will appear with an embed code to place in your content management system. It will include a script that automatically adapts the embed height to fit your page:
We hope you find meeting series useful for managing recurring meetings. Please drop us a note and share your thoughts on where it should go next!
