  •  Discuss prioritizing Acq. SIG topics (Dennis Bridges)
  • acquisitions resource Page
  • It would be helpful to have a better sense of the general level of interest in these stories. 
  • Ann Crowley 12:14 PM
    What about using the impact on functionality or workflow?  
    • It would be helpful if the story could include how it impacts more than just the one issue submitted in the ticket. 
  • Susanne Gill (BVB) 12:15 PM
    Doesn't jira has a "vote for"?
  • Dennis: We don't need a complex metric. Right now, internally makes his own assessment on what may be a priority based on his experience. 
  • Sara: Have a recorded meeting where people with requests give a 5 minute round robin type presentation on why it's important. Then we all vote on the JIRA. 
  • Martina: I like the idea of the SIG voting on the tickets in an asynchronous way. Also 2nd Sara's idea of having 5 minute presentation on the importance of the JIRA. Then link the meeting to the Jira ticket. 
  • Molly Driscoll 12:31 PM
    Sorry if I missed this, but has there been a recommendation from the FOLIO Prioritization and Roadmap Working Group that we could use? (FOLIO Prioritization and Roadmap Working Group)
    • Dennis: I think this is more high level
  • Molly Driscoll 12:33 PM
    Jira/Confluence accounts can be created here: https://folio-org.atlassian.net/secure/Signup!default.jspa
  • Dennis: Action item - will confirm that we can use the voting feature in the JIRA. Martina will confirm. 
  • Dennis: Worth having a discussion on the length of time it takes to go through the implementers list.  Aron has picked up a lot of the stories in the list. 
  • Sara Colglazier (MHC/5C) 12:44 PM
    +1 to Scott's suggestion of grouping!
  • Dung-Lan Chen 12:49 PM
    Dennis, can the label "acq-sig-topics" be "acq-sig-topics-orders," "acq-sig-topics-finance," … etc.?!
  • Lisa Smith, Mich State 12:54 PM
    Would comments on JIRAs add priority?
  • Dennis: Consider having a retrospective meeting for the year.  What has gone well, what hasn't....
