I would only put a period after the last bullet item if the other bullet
items have commas at the end of the lines and if you add "and" before the
last bullet's text. For example:

The audit activities Wazoo Software records for a user are:
- adding widgets,
- removing widgets,
- and viewing widget content.

HTH,
Alyssa

What is the correct (standard?) punctuation for the following structure?
(The list below is bulleted, I just put it in plain text for readability.)

The audit activities Wazoo Software records for a user are:
- adding widgets
- removing widgets
- viewing widget content

Should the last bullet (viewing widget content) have a period?

Thanks,
Sue Deichmann
