Living Product Roadmap 

Living Roadmap can be found on the Open:MIS wiki page

Timescale is not actually reflective of actual target dates. We need to gather data on team velocity, before the timescale can be updated with realistic dates.

Gap Analysis feature prioritization can be found on the Google spreadsheet which was shared with the community before. There are 48 features at the last count.

While most of the roadmap items are gap related. But there are also few other types, e.g., Stock based Requisition

Community feedback is welcomed on the roadmap.

Connect-a-thon is planned for Facility Registry. Amanda provided more details info 

Expect email from MaryJo about upcoming agenda for the next Governance Committee meeting.
