As a past executive secretary to the school board in St. Charles Parish, I used BoardDocs daily!

Pros

The software is a tremendous Time savings for my position. The accuracy of voting and record keeping is top quality, the transparent for constituents is absolutely amazing and acceptable. The fact that users submit agenda items with attachments if need be is a plus! Capability of making corrections is a big help to me. . Record keeping is definitely a plus! The customer service is quick and knowledgeable. They are very friendly and efficient with concerns and returning phone calls.

Cons

I can honestly say that since day one of using the board docs software we have had no downtime, no issues, and no major problems . I cannot think of any cons with the software. The annual conference is great but could use more sessions for users with more experience. Otherwise, I have no problems or suggestions for the program. We have implemented almost 99 percent of the software options. Thanks for an amazing service!

BoardDocs has been a game-changer for our district. Easy implementation!

Greater efficiency and organization

Pros

The features and functionality of BoardDocs have exceeded our expectations and needs and have provided efficiencies beyond measure. The development and publishing of agendas and minutes is easy and hassle-free. Last minute changes are a breeze!

Cons

There is very little that I don't like about BoardDocs, and perhaps one of the only things I would change is the ability to quickly see and manage the "people" list and who is assigned to which committees. As we have a large number of committees, it is sometimes important to be able to see who is assigned to which committees overall.

There is nothing not to love about BoardDocs!

Using BoardDocs has solved the issue of printing the agenda and all exhibits for every board member prior to each meeting. Reams of paper were used throughout this process. If you noticed a mistake after agendas were printed, you needed to reprint the portion where the changes were made. Changes in BoardDocs is so simple and takes less than a minute to accomplish.

Pros

BoardDocs is so easy to navigate through. I especially like the search function when I need to find a specific item that has been previously approved. I also like how the user receives policy updates through the Pro version of BoardDocs.

Cons

At this time, I do not feel that BoardDocs is lacking in any area and it was actually quite easy to teach to all the other users.

Reduces public transparency

Miserable and not a single other Community member has had a positive reaction to this subtle way to make the workings of a large public institution just a little more inaccessible.

Pros

Thinking about when this will no longer be used.

Cons

Documents jump around when you try to view them on a phone. Impossible to load a document to your phone. Very difficult to save documents to your own computer. Difficult and inconsistent path to finding agenda for meetings from month to month. Reduces transparency of College functions—seems designed to do that. Should not be allowed for use in public institutions.

Highly Recommend BoardDocs

The ease of creating agendas and completing meeting minutes has saved a great amount of time. I can access the system from home or my phone if need be. All past meeting information is a my fingertips with the easy to use search feature. The help line is extremely accessible. Rarely do I have to leave a message because the associates are busy but if I do the return call is always within minutes.

Pros

As the Board clerk, the transition seemed daunting before I had the training. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] came to my District and spent 2 full days setting up our Board of Education account and training me. After she left, I was confident that I would be able to get through my first Board meeting knowing that the help phone line was ready to help 24/7.

Cons

I wish there was a shortcut listing of tips and tricks for the software
