CivicClerk uses dedicated web pages that can be displayed on televisions or monitors in the meeting rooms or chambers. These pages are called Display Pages. With CivicClerk's integrated Display Pages functionality, minutes-takers can either have the display change automatically when the Set Current button is pressed or can control the display manually. The following information can be displayed using the display pages functionality:
- A pre-meeting welcome screen
- The current item being discussed
- The current speaker and speaker timer
- Vote results once "saved as passed" or "saved as failed" by the Clerk
To use Display Pages, you will need to have permission rights to use the Minutes module.
Your custom display page URL will be https://clientname.civicclerk.com/Boardview/Display. This will need to be brought up on a computer in your meeting chambers that has the capability to screenshare or display content.
In the Minutes Settings, you can first choose whether you will manually control the display pages or whether they will change automatically as you use the Set Current button.
Then navigate to the Minutes Summary to start working in your meeting. The first display page that will be shown is the Welcome Screen. The display indicator in the upper right corner of the page will always indicate which display page is currently being displayed.
The Welcome Screen will look like:

If you elect to add a speaker to the item, add the speaker, and start the timer. The display page will automatically update showing the name of the item, the speaker name, and the countdown timer.

When you add a motion and either manually add or initiate an electronic vote, the display page will show the live vote results only after you select "save as passed" or "save as failed" on the vote. If you wish to update the display page to show the motion that is being considered, select the display graphic button next to the motion name field (computer monitor icon).
