Outcomes

Is the success of this project's actions being monitored?   Yes

Please describe your monitoring activity.

We respond to emails with suggestions, edits and tips for the next release.

What lessons have been learned and/or what suggestions do you have for similar activities?

Creating this document was a lengthy and complex process. The uploaded pdf file is Version 1.1. Although Registry staff have tested and proofed the manual in-house, there wasn't time for a beta test with multiple users. For instance, we did not create a troubleshooting section. Tips for use have been included throughout the document, but there won't be a true troubleshooting and FAQ section until the next release.

Contact Registry staff troubleshooting tips that you have discovered while using the Registry.

What additional information would you like to share?

Please contact the project manager for any edits, updates or changes you feel need to be included in the next version of the Conservation Registry User's Guide.
