The application Sessions Records and Deliberations allows the management of the workflow for deliberations and decisions of government and collegial bodies. Sessions can be of two types, referred to an Organization Government Body or related to a Structure Government Body. In this guideline, we will discuss the first type, when it refers to a Government body of the whole organization.
The service described in this guideline is accessible to the founder and to members that have been enabled to Manage as Responsible of the Session - Organization.
From the sidebar menu, select Sessions Records and Deliberations, then access the service Manage as Responsible of the Session - Organization from the list.

The initial panel will provide you the list of Sessions Records that are accessible to your profile as Responsible of the Session, with some brief information about the Session.
