IT Info Update Meeting Minutes
October 27, 2010

Grover
  1. Recent changes to Grover - it now works with Chrome & Safari.
  2. Discussion about potential modifications to the notification method: Complete ticket history in email vs. just the last update in email. Most people seem to want the complete ticket history in the email. Automatic notification if you are on the ticket? Let the IT Dept know your opinion.
