Wiki Support Update see morning agenda, not all agenda topics finished https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Community_Wiki_Support_Meeting_17_April_2014

Followup of what went on this week:

Projects - we need to move beyond discussion and into action. We have

  • Format Issues
  • Content Issues
  • Visual Issues
  • Actionable items- what can we do and how to break it down to get things done

? Does Yammer have a way to change online status to "away" or "not available"? It is confusing to those who try to send us a chat message while we are in a meeting on WebEx that fills up our screen so we don't see we have a message. NO
