So I only ended up working for a week and a bit in January as I booked off the first week back and after my first week back I caught a nasty case of the flu and was off for about 2 weeks. There were 3 things that I ended up working on: finishing off/fixing bugs on the comp summary page, prototype a competition widget for the websites and take over the newsletter data.
There’s nothing really to talk about the comp summary, I was mainly just working on the PDF and making sure everyone was happy with it and fixing any bugs that I found.
The next thing I did was taking the process of creating the send list for the newsletters. I was only originally meant to take over this process temporarily while a co-worker was away, but the co-worker ended up been let go and I was left with only having done once under their supervision. (With that one time been a trial run) So when I had to do for real I was quite nervous as the process for this takes is complicated and takes up several pages of documentation. At first, there we a few discrepancies between my data and data that was done before. I had no idea what I’d done wrong, but I tried again following a different bit of documentation and it worked. So going forward I used that documentation, and ever since I’ve been quite comfortable with the process and I haven’t messed up (yet…)
