- When you come to spaces that are not recorded you use the link on the instruction page to bring up the pages and find out the amount. Save often as you work.
- When finished save, copy the link and send an e-mail with the link to Danielle Batson.
What else is there to be done?
- When there has been a change in the numbers. go to that page and work on the page to reduce the numbers as far as possible. Example:Special:NewPages the goal is always 0.
- Your guide, how to, on all the pages is in the right column on the instruction sheet Instruction page
- The how to or instruction for each item needs to be updated when changes happen.
