Agenda2 is an application for building agendas for meetings. To design a meeting, simply create the sessions, add presentations, discussions and breaks to the sessions. Configure each agenda item (name, duration, discussion time, theme, speaker, etc). Order them as you wish and then build the agenda. Agenda2 calculates the start and stop times of each agenda item based on the session start/stop times, the duration of the items and any constraints the user puts in place. Agenda2 makes simple work of rearranging items, moving talks to different sessions, reassigning speakers, and much more.
Organise your meetings Agenda2 has a simple tree structure for organizing your meetings. You can create as many categories as you want to organize your meetings in to. You can also rearrange meetings and sessions using drag-and-drop. Create a meeting Creating a meeting in Agenda2 is easy. Just select a category and click the New Meeting icon. A new meeting is created with a new session ready to be configured. You can go ahead and give the meeting a name and fill in other details such as the location, start and end time of the meeting. Set up a session A meeting in Agenda2 is composed of one or more sessions. A new meeting comes ready with a single session, but you can add more sessions if you wish. Sessions are supposed to represent sections of a meeting which are either disctinct in time, or in location. You can add new sessions to a meeting with the New Session button or menu item. Having created a session, you can set its name and other properties in the session editor.
Agenda2 is a Mac OS X application for building flexible agendas for meetings.
Populate a session In Agenda2, a session is populated with agenda items. For example, you can add presentations, discussions and breaks to your session. Agenda items appear in the list in the session editor. The order in which they appear in the list dictates the order in which they appear in the final agenda. Items can be rearranged with drag-and-drop, the up-down arrows, or with menu items and short-cut keys. Configure agenda items Each agenda item has a number of configurable properties, depending on the type of item. You can edit some of the item properties directly on the item view: You can access all the item's properties by clicking on the 'gear' button on the item: Theming your agenda Meetings in Agenda2 can contain different themes. This allows you to color code the final agenda to make it easier for readers to pick out common topics. When a meeting is created it gets the default set of themes configured in the preferences. Themes can be added to the default theme-set, or to individual meetings. A theme has a name and a color, both of which are configurable. Having set up your themes, you can give each item in the sessions a theme. If switched on (in the preferences), the rendered agenda will be colored according to your themes.
Constraining items Agenda items can be constrained to start or end at a particular time. Once an item is constrained, the start times of subsequent items in the agenda will respect that constraint. Render your agenda The power of Agenda2 is that the item times in the final agenda are calculated according to the configuration of your meeting. The final start time for an agenda item depends on the session start time, the finishing times of preceeding items, and any constraints you have set on the item. The rendered agenda can be seen in the preview which is updated dynamicall as you build your meeting's agenda. The final agenda also shows if items overrun the end of sessions or run in to other items. In addition, you can configure Agenda2 to include comments or minutes of items in the final agenda. Output your agenda In Agenda2 your final rendered agenda can be exported in html format or printed to pdf. You can also export a meeting to disk so that it can be imported to Agenda2 running on another machine.
