Notes from last meeting:
  • Last meeting, we got side-tracked on a couple side-items and did not have time for updates on each feature. Therefore, things listed as "last meeting" on the last set of minutes are listed the same again this time.

Table of Contents

MWF 1.3


Customizable Home Screen [Rich]

  • It's sitting in the form decorator refactor
Form Decorator [Ike]
  • Rich is pretty happy with this
  • Not sure about some of the method names at this point
  • Issue 1: Review the method names
  • Issue 2: Using an Input decorator, we provide set_checkbox(), set_textarea(), etc.
