The noticeboard is a great way to ensure conversations that happen in-between meetings are visible and recorded, it's also a great tool for tracking items for addition to future agendas or keeping up with training needs and messages from your local authority or trust.

Free text search

Our article How do I search for a particular post on our noticeboard shows you how can find a particular conversation using free text. If however you are looking for ways to make your noticeboard generally more streamlined and effective, read on to find out about topics and filters.

Creating topic filters to help categorise your posts

Your clerk/admin can create topics and add them to existing posts. This will help them categorise messages for board members to filter the noticeboard on future visits. This is really handy for creating a list of generic filters that your team often comes looking for (Training' or 'Next meeting agenda item' for example).
