CoP Call Agenda

IBIS-PH is website software that allows public health practitioners access to publicly-owned health data. The IBIS-PH Community of Practice (CoP) is the stakeholder group for the software. Monthly CoP conference calls allow CoP members to communicate with each other and the IBIS-PH contractors who provide software development and support.

  • When you submit a ticket, leave the Milestone=Unassigned and Version=Unknown and the ticket will come up on ticket report number 1 New Tickets for CoP Review
  • If you have new or open tickets please review them and be prepared to discuss them on the CoP call. You can run the {1} New Tickets for CoP Review report to see current tickets. The purposes of discussing tickets are to a) communicate an idea to the community, and b) to identify and track IBIS-PH software issues. (Note that once a ticket has been marked to be worked then that ticket is only discussed on the CoP call for the purpose of moving the effort forward.)
