Weekly Journal (WJ)

The WJ is a bullet-point list of ‘headlines’, everything within it should be recorded in more detail in the relevant places on TagMin, with Tasks created to continue the work where necessary. 

It functions as an activity overview for all members and is particularly useful for the incoming Agents of the Day to get up to speed on on-going issues.  

How to use it:  #

The Weekly Journal, is a google doc with a blue-square shortcut on The ACT Links Page:

Format #

Look for the relevant headings, and add items in the standard logging format always putting the most recent date at the top of the list. 

Incoming info (phone calls, emails and post) use the following format:  #

Date / Initials of AoD / Content…  

e.g.:  21/07 PH – Sasha Robertson called to ask JS to tape for Heinz by 10am on 22/7 

Castings, pencils and work, use the following format:  #

Date of event / Client initials / Casting Director or Company /  Job+Role info / Due by or meeting time as applicable 

e.g.: 22/7 JS for Sasha Robertson Heinz Commercial Dad by 10am
