The Daily Log template reflects the steps set out in the PRINCE2 Method and is designed to prompt the Project Manager and help in the creation of the Daily Log. There is also a Product Description for the Daily Log at Appendix A of the PRINCE2 Manual.
Once your Daily Log is complete check the document against the following Quality Criteria:
- Entries are sufficiently documented to be understandable later (a short note might make sense at the time, but will it in several months’ time?)
- Date, person responsible and target date are always filled in
- Consideration has been given to access rights for the Daily Log (e.g. should the Daily Log be visible to everyone working on the project?).
