Quick start

Hello everybody!

I`ve just started trial use of GF and it occurred that I can do nothing. I can`t add new roles and subcircles. Although I assigned myself the LL. There are no other colleagues of mine there. I want to test it first, to make some adjustments before to invite them to use GF. And I started from free version - just to learn basics. So could you address me to any guide book or give the instructions on how to set this up? 

Best regards,

Dasha

Hey Dasha - you add roles/circles/polices via a Governance Meeting. Just click on the "Open Governance Meeting" button and you'll be good to go!

You need to click on a circle first, then you'll find the button on the left part of the page.

FRANCESCO, thanks! And should I fill the role of Secretary to record the decisions? Because when I opened the GM, I couldn't create any new roles((

No, you don't have to be in the Secretary role.

The workflow is

1. open meeting

2. add tension

3. select tension

4. build proposal (add/edit/delete role, role element or policy)

5. accept proposal

Dasha,  hello.  This getting started with GlassFrog video may also help to acquaint you with the basics of getting around.  Of course you found yourself in the Community of Practice, which is a perfect place to start.  You might also want to consider other Holacracy resources such as outlined here - as there's nothing like seeing this practice, well, in practice as a way to start!
