@lila_meyer  I have a question about the Scorecard Timeline enhancement.  These will be captured as type “Update” - if we have made Duration field mandatory on the Update Timeline type, will that cause an issue when rules attempt to update Scorecard comments?    Who would be the right person of whom to ask that question?

Hi Jeff - can you explain a bit on the rationale for making duration mandatory on an Update activity type? Would that be just the time that it was spent on writing the timeline update?

@dan_ahrens I don’t quite know yet (it’s my 3rd day :blush: ) but just curious if that was going to prevent a rule from completing.  And actually, it appears we have the Update type disabled altogether - I don’t yet know the rationale for that either.
