Overview


Action Items are the most important part of Continuity Planning. The process of thinking through the steps you need to take to prepare is critical to developing a culture of preparedness. Kuali Ready allows you to manage Action Items in multiple locations within plans.

  • Action Items Summary - This screen is available from the link near the top of the plan navigation when you are in edit mode. It includes the Action Items from every plan section. You can add, edit and archive Action Items here, and also sort and filter the items for viewing.
