Simply getting these reminders made surethat the software was moving the discussion forward and the reminders did not fall onone person to send out.Todo lists: although not every individual organizes their thoughts the same, having acomprehensive check list of items seem to keep people on point and helped withefficiency of projects.Ericka Hunter
