Add a Meeting Category


To create a category to group individual meeting items for a meeting.


If your project's Meetings tool is set to the 'Category' meeting view, you can create one or more meeting categories to organize your meeting items into. There is no limit to the number of categories or meeting items that you can create for a meeting.

  • For a pre-construction meeting, you might want to organize meeting items into categories such as: Introductions, Contract Information, Prevailing Wage and Billing Procedures, Background Checks and Permits.
  • For a construction progress meeting, you might want to organize meeting items into categories such as: Preparation Activities, Contractor Progress Statements and Payment Issues.
