Please fill in actual activity for Last Month (October) and intended activity for This Month (November) for projects you are responsible for. For reference, the intended activity recorded for October is included where an entry had been made (it is considered unhelpful to alter this to match what actual activity was :). It is acceptable to change devproj milestones as part of this process, however if you do please indicate that you have done so below, for example by adding a Change of Plan bullet point, so that the meeting is alerted to the changes.

  • Revisit Account Management

    • Comment by gdmr: Can I express some concern as to the state of this project and our user documentation? Both seem to be in limbo. As a result I have been making (necessary) changes to the existing versions, but of course this means that the new versions will have to be found and reconciled at some point in the future.
