Because meetings are where most of our decisions are made, it's important to boost and facilitate the decision-making process between attendees. Here's how to add decisions and manage attendees voting on them.
How to add decisions?
There are three ways where you can add decisions:
First: In your meeting room, from the decision tile, you'll find two sections, the taken and the call-for-vote. Select the (+) icon to add new decisions. You can move decisions to the call for vote section. Check the drop-down menu to manage, edit, end or delete votes.
Note: Only the meeting coordinator can add decisions during the meeting.
Second: Aside from making decisions during a meeting, you can add decisions on projects, directly from decisions. Just click on the create decision button and follow the instructions.
Note: You need to have at least one project that you're the owner of in order to add decisions directly on it. Note that you'll see this button in a disabled state if you don't have a project you're the owner of.
Third: You can also directly create a new decision from anywhere on the app by clicking on the quick add (+) icon, and then select new decision.
Start adding details to your decision like title, which project this decision belongs to, and status. Decision status could be either in vote, agreed or disagreed.
How to view decisions?
Head to decisions, where you can view all the decisions that have been made. When selected you can see that each decision has its own notes, files, votes, and discussion section.
Your decisions have different views; In Vote views all decisions still in the voting stage, Agreed views all decisions agreed on, then further into it is In Progress and Implemented, stating which decisions are in which state as the name suggest, and Disagreed views all decisions that have been discarded since they've been disagreed upon.
You can sort decisions by the creation date, in an ascending or descending order.
You can also search for and filter any decision by its title, project, meeting, status, or creation date.
How to edit decisions?
Select any decision to display its details, click on edit decision and start editing the decision title, project, status, and then click on save.
Members can add their comments on decisions in-vote and see others' votes in the discussion section of the quickview. Votes of each member appear on their profile pictures as arrows colored based on their votes; green for agreed, and red for disagreed.
If you're a project owner, you can view all members' votes in a condensed view like in this window. You can access this window by hovering over the votes section in the quick view, and clicking on the number of either vote.
A project owner has the authority on the states of the decisions, where they can:
- End a decision’s vote (from the in-vote tab) as agreed or disagreed.
- Change an agreed decision’s state from in-progress to implemented and vise versa.
- Open voting again on a disagreed decision.
How to export decisions?
You can always export your decision items to an excel sheet through the export icon on the top right of your decisions page.
How to delete decisions?
You can always delete a decision if you wish, though not recommended, through the quick view of that decision in your decisions page.
