i have only been using latex for about half a year, and do a lot of agendas for meetings and i when i do so i but bullets in, as i am typing in bullets i remember why they are on the agenda and want to write my thouhgts under each point.

My question is, is there a package out there, that alows me to build a version with/without these comments? As i of course do not want the rest of the office to get agendas with my notes.

I think there is a comment package that might apply. – Steven B. Segletes Apr 9 '14 at 14:25
The meetingmins class has a way of hiding items if you're happy to use a class rather than a package. – Nicola Talbot Apr 9 '14 at 14:31
@NicolaTalbot perhaps you could turn your comment into an answer? – Gonzalo Medina Apr 9 '14 at 14:45
The meetingmins class was exactly what i was looking for! Thank you so much. – Steffen Hvid Apr 9 '14 at 14:56

The meetingmins class allows you to have hidden items that are only displayed with the chair class option:


\setdate{9th April 2014}
\setcommittee{Sample Committee}
 \chair{Some One},
 Someone Else



 \item Some hidden item.

\section{Old Business}
  \item \priormins

\section{New Business}
\item Some item.

\nextmeeting{15th April 2014 at 15:00}


This produces:

Image of agenda

To switch to the agenda for everyone else, just change the chair class option to agenda:


This now produces:

Hidden item has been suppressed
