CANCELLED: 2020-07-15: COVID Squad Call

Friendly reminder about our weekly COVID-19 Squad call this Wednesday (back to the normal 1-hr timeslot).

Goals: This next session will be a 3-step process:

  1. Team Poll: First 10 mins will be a shared working session: We’ll vote in a poll on the top 3 ideas from the consolidated list we’ve been editing these last 2 weeks.
  2. Identify the Short List: Using the digital results, we’ll pick out the top 3-4 ideas. These will become our list that we’ll bring to consumers to gauge interest and gather feedback.
  3. Assign Responsibilities: Each non-implementer will be responsible for bringing this short-list to at least 1 site/implementing organization, and bringing their feedback to the next squad call. Implementers will be responsible for bringing back feedback. The goal is not just feedback but also to identify sites interested in using the functionality, so we have a clear launch/real-world use-case situation we’ll work towards over the next 2 months. (E.g. @janflowers has committed to taking the short-list to ITECH Haiti for feedback and to gauge their interest in piloting.)

After hearing that several people couldn’t make the time today, we’ve decided to cancel the call today and instead execute the agenda asynchronously. I will follow up by sending and posting the survey mentioned in Goal 1 above, and then I will compile the answers and share for next steps and responsibility assigning.
