Hi @jeff.beorse. Based on our past conversations and changes last week, I think ODK are probably OK to check off the “finalize ideas list” from the checklist above. What do you think?

Hi @downey. My only hesitation with checking that box is that this post hasn’t been updated with Callum’s project idea. But I see we are well behind schedule here and understand if we should just call it now. I will reach out to Helene to get a status there and try to be put in contact with Callum. We can safely say that there will be no new project ideas after Callum’s.

No worries! “Finalize” as a term used here, can be a bit flexible. As long as the fundamentals aren’t really shifting on student applicants, it’s OK to continue to add detail or clarity, especially if potential students are uncovering “frequently asked” questions.
