Let's not leave out the case where the SME is an animal.

"The SME should print its name and sign it with a paw print (hoof print, etc.) on the Signature line"

I know some human SMEs where that applies.

Sorry, I'm an actor.

In this situation, we have a number of diferent actors. Each step may refer to a different actor. The author of the document wrote things like

"The SME should print his/her name and sign it on the Signature line"
Â
The next step then says what the next actor should be doing with the form.
Â
I don't think I can get away with totally reorganizing or editing the document to put it all in the second person assumed format. I have to take baby steps here with how much I can get away with editing.

Regards,


Becca
