Video Demo: Organize and Change Your Agenda and the Time for Each Activity

The latest update to the WordPress for Toastmasters agenda editing tools makes it easier to reorder roles and adjust the timing for each activity, making every meeting better organized.

The video demo goes step-by-step through the process of setting up your standard meeting template. I also show how you can restructure a particular week’s meeting, for example to turn it into a speechathon with double the usual number of speaking roles.

A couple of recent changes are a more compact display of agenda roles in the editor, with controls for the time allowed for each activity moved to the sidebar on the right. Among other things, that makes it easier to reorder things on the agenda. You can move elements up and down using the up and down arrows to the left of each content block.

A new Timing Preview also allows you to see the effect of your changes as you plan your meeting.

One limitation: the Timing Summary doesn’t show the effect of adding or deleting an activity until you save your work and reload the page.
