You could do the smart thing and use a Meeting Minutes template that has a
for action items already defined and labeled. Then you can number them
Ideally it would include a space specifically for the names of those the
item is assigned
to and the date or time limit allowed to it. That document would then become
part of your
project quality records, assuming you keep such things, and I hope you do.

|Hey y'all,
|Here's rinky-dink question for somebody who's totally bored...
|1) Using Word
|2) Recording meeting minutes
|How do you identify the action items?
|My preference has been the current meeting date plus a
|sequential number:
|000530-1 Kevin to sound out management, re: first-aid
| training for employees.
| Update: 00/05/31, management sez employees
| intending accident or illness should get their
| own first-aid training.
| Note: some additional consciousness-raising for
| management may be in order.
| Status: Ongoing.
|000530-2 Matt to revise floorplan before next workplace
| inspection.
|Word likes to view such items as numbered lists. When I move
|one from the New Action Items list to the Open Action Items
|list or the Closed Action Items list... Word re-numbers them.
|That's a no-no.
|Also, Word insists on truncating leading zeros -- if I turn that
|off, it messes up some other, unrelated numeric items.
|Is there a way to leave the usually-helpful Word features ON,
|but to cleanly designate some text as "can't touch this"?? I need
|to use word because the minutes are shared by many word users.
|Does somebody have a better scheme for recording Action Items?
