To create a meeting using the project's Meetings tool. 


You can use the Meetings tool to create detailed agendas for your project meetings. The first step in the process is to create the meeting. This process lets you set the date, time, location, and attendees. This process is described in the Steps below. Once the meeting is created, you can move on to create categories (see Create a Meeting Category), which are used to group agenda items into subjects. Then, you can add the individual agenda items (see Add a Meeting Item) to your categories.
