How to run your recurring meetings
The recurring meeting is a keystone to set up operational monitoring.
Executive committees – project steering committees – one-on-one meetings – sales follow-up meetings – field follow-up meetings ….
All these recurring meetings have the same challenges: making decisions, managing any problems encountered, declining a strategy in the field and of course follow-up the action plan achievement between 2 meetings with the team members involved.
Beesy allows you to efficiently and easily manage your recurrent meetings with an automated actions plan follow-up between 2 meetings, the management of recurring or not subjects, the set-up of a note template to decline a strategy in the field …

Beesy TIPS N°1
Manage your recurring meetings agenda
For recurring topics, you will leave the option Recurrence in ON so that they remain visible in the next notes
For topics related to a seasonal or one-time effect, you can choose to remove them from the next recurring meeting by setting the Recurrence option to OFF
Identify the recurring topics you want to see at each meeting and the specific topics that will be closed as soon as the action plan is completed.
For example, for specific topics such as a one-time customer event, you only need to set the topic as non-recurring so that it no longer appears in the next recurring note once all its actions have been closed.
By specifying whether or not you want to include specific topics in the next notes, you can avoid having an endless list of topics at the end of the month.
You will have a clear vision on the progress of your objectives, projects and action plans related to recurring strategic topics for your business.
Keep an action visible on all recurring notes
In the same way, you can also choose to keep remarks, decisions … visible on all of your meetings with the “Pin” functionality in the action setting.
