Basic data entry
The meetings database aims at being easy to use, particularly for entering basic information about a meeting - while simultaneously - being able to handle a wealth of information related to a meeting.
In order to reduce the complexity and the visual impact, data to be entered has been split into sections. The amount of required data is also kept at a minimum: only title, place (country) and date(s) are mandatory. This information is found on the first section to be shown for a data entry user, on the "basics" tab.
The data sections are:
- Persons involved
- Official documents
- Summary and results
Each section and its form is described on a separate page.
For some meetings more information is needed. This information is optional and consists of:
- planning information (only of relevance for the organizing institution);
- documents (posters, presentations and others);
