When you wish to add a vote on an agenda item -BoardPro has a Smart Agenda item to help you organise your voting procedure.
In the section where you want to add the vote, simply click to add a new Agenda Item and select Vote.
The core elements of an agenda item are all present, as well as new elements:
- Motion: You can enter the motion into the agenda in advance, and when the vote is recorded in the Minutes the motion will be copied there for quick editing as a basis for the resolution.
- Selecting Voters: choose from eligible* members of the organisation to cast a vote. Typically it will be the board, but we have kept it flexible in case someone else is invited to vote.
- Show Vote Results: if not selected (which is the default) BoardPro will simply record the total count of votes for and against, without listing how each person voted. However, if this setting is turned on, BoardPro will record in the Minute how each person voted - including any reasons entered for abstaining.
