Updated over a week ago

It's easy to do things like add a a rolling agenda, docs, or notes to your Smart Meeting events, and natively integrate agenda tools you might already be using including Lattice,, and more.

How agendas work in Google Calendar

You can add notes or an agenda to recurring Google Calendar events to stay on track of meeting outcomes and action items. These are included on the actual calendar events for quick access.

There are three options for how you can edit these on your events in Google Calendar:

  • This event: Add an agenda to one specific instance (e.g., if you track agendas manually using bullets, you can make an agenda for just that meeting, or if you have a guest attendee and want to make an exception to a normal rolling agenda)

  • This and following events: Add an agenda to this meeting instance, and all the following events (e.g., you updated an agenda going forward and want to attach a new rolling doc or change the bullets)

  • All events: Overwrite the agenda for all time, including on past events (e.g., the attached agenda is not the one you use and you want to update it across all events)

Add agendas to Smart Meetings

Associating your agendas in Google Calendar, or with tools like Lattice or, will work with your Smart Meetings just the same as they would on any normal recurring meeting event.

Let's take a look at a few different ways to add an agenda to your Smart Meetings.

via Reclaim

You can add an agenda, doc, report or any other link to your Smart Meetings that will be included on the calendar events for easy access. To add an ongoing agenda to all your Smart Meetings:

  1. Navigate to your Smart Meetings page.

  2. Edit an existing meeting you are the organizer of, or create a new Smart Meeting.

  3. Under 'Description', drop in notes, links, or any other docs you want included on your calendar events. The notes field supports markdown formatting, learn more in this doc.

  4. All Smart Meetings in this series will now include your agenda or other notes right in the calendar event.

You can also change this notes section at any time from the Smart Meetings page, or from the Planner by clicking on the Smart Meeting event and selecting Edit this & following in the sidebar to make any updates.

Note: While you can choose to edit the agenda or notes of 'This event', 'this and following events', or 'All events' in Google Calendar – edits made in the Reclaim app will only apply to 'This and following' instances in the Smart Meetings series.

If you want to edit a single event, or override all events in the series, you'll need to go so on the event from in Google Calendar. More info in the section below!
