Patrolling and Amdocs Review

Did you see anything while patrolling this past week that would be interesting to discuss with the team?

  • When working on recent changes, go to the newest edit by click on "newer edit."  You should not edit an older page because you will loose the newest edits.  After patrolling the newest page,  Mark the other pages patrolled.  
  • You can also go to the newest version of a page by clicking on the page tab.
  • While patrolling, look for photos that are too small and resize them.
  • Next meeting, Sandra will bring suggestions for updating policies and procedures.

Thank you for working on recent changes and collaborating together. It helps us to

  1. See what is being touched.
