The habit of why

A standard feature of a CMS is the comments field that appears when you check a topic in to the database. My initial reaction to using this field was one of rejection because I could not imagine taking the time to write about the changes I had made to the document while I was working on it. One of our consultants pointed out the desirability of being able to trace why something was deleted or added, or changed for that matter.

I am settling into the habit of checking out my bookmap without checking out all the topics contained in it. Then, I individually check out each topic when I begin to work on it. Since this method of working doesn't seem burdensome, I decided to try commenting at check-in. Soon I began to gauge my check-in times by the specific type of work completed. And, I found myself commenting even when I fixed a typo. The effort involved now seems minor, and I expect the value to be considerable, should it ever be necessary to defend the company's reputation in court! God forbid.

I'm wondering how others use the comment-at-check-in? Do you find it too much effort? Have you ever gone back to find out why an update was made?

I have a cyber friend that just had an upstairs bath remodelled and she gave the employer of the workers the key. Of course you need to remove all valuables. It worked out well for her. I guess this is a common practice. Be aware that they don't get the work done all in one day.
