Create WorkBoard Meetings to discuss your Objectives, Key Results, Workstreams, Action Items and any work associated with your strategic initiatives.
WorkBoard Meetings integrate with Google Calendar & Microsoft Outlook, allowing you to create a WorkBoard Meeting Agenda for all of your calendar events to track your meeting outcomes.
Outlook or Google Calendar Integration
If you haven't already, check out this article to setup your Calendar Integration. While it's not a requirement, it makes creating Meeting Agendas for new and existing calendar events a breeze, and we recommend it for an optimal experience.
This legend will help you understand the different types of Meetings you're seeing in WorkBoard.
Meeting Types: Standalone Workboard meetings, Linked Meetings that you have accepted, Linked Meetings you have marked as tentative, Linked Meetings that you have declined, Linked Meetings that you haven't responded to
Creating Meeting Agendas
You can dynamically create WorkBoard Meetings for existing Outlook or Google calendar events and create ad-hoc and scheduled WorkBoard Meetings which can be linked to a calendar event at a later time.
Click-to-Create WorkBoard Meetings
If there's a WorkBoard Meeting associated with the existing calendar event, you will see the Topics icon, which is a number (0,1,2,3, etc.) & three horizontal lines. The Topic icon follows the Repeating Event icon which follows the Title of the meeting.
Meetings synchronized from Google Calendar or Microsoft Outlook that don't have WorkBoard Meetings associated with them, will not have an Agenda.
Calendar Event without WorkBoard Meeting:
Calendar Event with WorkBoard Meeting associated with it:
To create a WorkBoard Meeting for the calendar event simply click on calendar event that doesn't have a Topics icon
Linking existing WorkBoard Meetings to existing Google or Outlook Events
Note: First ensure you've setup the integration with Google or Outlook.
Link ad-hoc and scheduled WorkBoard Meetings calendar event from Outlook or Google. After you link your Meeting to an Outlook or Google calendar event, scheduling (time, date, frequency), location, description and attendees is controlled and updated from your Calendar not from WorkBoard.

You can schedule standalone WorkBoard Meetings and push them to your Outlook or Google Calendar. Once in your Calendar, you can create a custom recurrence, add conferencing details and update attendees & other relevant information.
- Select New Meeting in the side-pane.
- Fill out your meeting details (Name, Schedule & Recurrence, Timezone, Location, Description and Attendees).
- Choose whether or not to Push this Meeting to Google/Microsoft Calendar.
Note: You can always push this meeting to your Google Calendar / Outlook Calendar later on (after you've added the agenda Topics).
- Select Create.
- If you opted to push the meeting to your calendar, or if you make any adjustments to the time & recurrence, location, description, conferencing information (Zoom, Webex, Teams, Go2Meeting, etc.) and attendees then Outlook/Google take over, then future updates should be made from your calendar not WorkBoard.
