“Report Back” Means
R/B means: “Tell them it is done, and give them the deliverables or details.”
Reporting Back on Assignments
Assignments received (cards with your face) could be found in the Waiting For column (3rd from the left).
- In MS Planner, Reporting Back is automatic.
- Process assigned tasks normally.
- Move tasks between columns/buckets as they progress through their life cycle (i.e: Work in Progress, Done – Verify (when completed), or Waiting For).
When to Report Back?
Report in a regular meeting by using a meeting context or 1-1 context. This demonstrates a higher level of initiative and prevents needless interruptions.
