1. Operational/User Support Items Completed During This Cycle

For each support item, please list the amount of effort involved as either: low, medium, or high. Guidelines for these rankings are as follows:
  • low - Things that take less than two hours.
  • medium - Things that take more than two hours, but less than eight hours.
  • high - Things that take more than eight hours.

If multiple people are involved in an item, please list it only once. Effort estimates should reflect total time elapsed, i.e. how long did it take to fix the problem start to finish - not the sum total of each person's time.
