This is a tutorial I delivered as a speech at my home club to make sure members know how to get the most out the agenda management system.
This tutorial covers some hidden gems and relatively new features in the WordPress for Toastmasters agenda management system, such as the ability to assign roles based on who hasn’t done them lately and the “Agenda with Contacts” view that lets you see contact information of members in the context of who has or has not taken a role.
I presented this as a speech at Club Awesome Toastmasters in Coral Springs, Florida, where the WordPress for Toastmasters software was born.
This tutorial doesn’t cover absolutely everything, but it touches on the major menu items. The basic idea to understand is that the agenda is a document that can be viewed in multiple modes:
- A role signup form
- A meeting organizer’s view of the form for editing assignments
- A printable agenda
- A version you can send to members via email when you are trying to fill roles, showing openings on the agenda and the link to follow to sign up
