Tadum sets the stage for monthly meetings with our online shared meeting agenda so you can keep your projects moving forward. With Tadum, you can easily create your agenda, track decisions and discussions, and keep your team accountable.
Monthly meetings can be for your full team, leadership meetings, or management meetings. Regardless, every meeting is made up of some combination of the following section types: Todos, Attachments, Discussions, Updates, and Metrics. With Tadum, you can build your agenda template with any number or combination of these sections. You can keep your meeting focused and cover whatever agenda items are best for your team. Once your template is built the first time, future agendas are automatically carried forward using the same format. This makes future meeting preparation a snap.
A month is a long time between meetings and it is easy to forget about preparing the agenda until the last minute, if at all. Tadum sends an automatic reminder to the person responsible for the agenda so that it doesn’t slip through the cracks. It gives them a chance to collect their thoughts before the meeting and clarify their goals before sending it out to the other meeting attendees.
Monthly meetings are most effective when they happen on a repeating schedule, also called a cadence or rhythm. They recur at the same time, same day, each month, with the same format. Tadum helps you set up your rhythm for your recurring meeting once and then automatically rolls forward for the appropriate date and time. Tadum’s integration with Google Calendar keeps that meeting rhythm for your monthly staff meetings or monthly management meetings in your calendar, complete with a link to the most recent agenda so no one forgets.
Remembering what happened last week is hard enough, remembering decisions made a month ago...even worse. If you write it down, you don’t have to remember! In Tadum, take your meeting minutes directly on the agenda so you have that record at your fingertips. Every monthly meeting has easy-to-read meeting minutes of what was discussed and the decisions that were made.
Part of those minutes is recording every action item or todo. To keep your team accountable Tadum requires that you record who is responsible for it and by when. Tadum takes this accountability a step further by automatically carrying those Todos forward with each weekly meeting agenda until it is marked as Done. This means that your action items and Todos don’t get buried in past meeting minutes and are kept top of mind. No more, “I totally forgot about that”, moments!
It is valuable for your team members to have easy access to both upcoming meeting agendas and past meeting minutes so they can prepare. In Tadum, everyone can access the agendas of the meetings they are part of at any time. Your team members can make additions or comments to the discussions and read any pre-meeting materials which help make the meeting more efficient.
For past meetings, having easily accessible meeting minutes means that if someone missed a meeting, it’s no problem. They can quickly read through the last meetings minutes and get caught up. Beyond that, if you want to look back on past decisions or discussions (especially when it has been a month since the last meeting), you can quickly pull up them up in Tadum in one, easy to find place.
Whether you are running weekly staff meetings, team meetings, or management meetings, Tadum helps you run effective meetings with easy collaboration. When you are finished preparing your Tadum agenda it is automatically emailed to all of the appropriate team members. Everyone can then access the agenda (at the same time!) and add any updates, comments or new discussions. Since your team can see the agenda ahead of the meeting, it sets expectations for what will be covered, what they need to do to prepare, and reminds them of their Todos. This makes your meetings more effective because you are not wasting time trying to get everyone up to speed and everyone is prepared.
