Vowel makes it easy to create meeting agendas with our library of templates.
When you click on a meeting that doesn't already have an agenda you will be presented with a list of recommended templates to choose from.
Select any one of these templates or start from scratch.
If you click on "More" in the left sidebar menu in your dashboard you'll have the option to create some of your own.
First, click "Meeting Templates".
Then at the bottom of the list, click "Create a new Template"
From there you'll be able to create a brand new template from scratch!
Note: any templates you create at this time are only available to the person who created them. You will not be able to share them with your teammates. However, they will always show up in your list of options when you create a meeting agenda.
