Adding Meeting Information

Start by adding a meeting title or, if you want to get started straight away, leave this blank and one will automatically be generated for you (based on the day and time of the meeting).

Next, select a date from the date picker.  The meeting time can then be added.

A meeting location is optional and will remain blank if you choose not to type anything into this area.
