This template is in alignment with PMI and PMBOK 5thEdition. I have used it on many projects and it is fully customizable.
It contains fields for Issue, Status, Priority, Targeted Resolution Date, Assigned To and more. It contains Data Validation on some fields as well as Conditional Formatting to instantly color code the Issues. It is also formatted to print on a standard 8.5 x 11 page.
Could you or any member of your team develop an Issue Log as described for only $5?
According to the Project Management Institute (PMI) and referenced many times throughout the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK 2013 5thEdition), an Issue Log is “A project document used to document and monitor elements under discussion or in dispute between project stakeholders.”
The Issue Log is best described in 10.3.1.3 of PMBOK: "An Issue Log is used to document and monitor the resolution of issues. It may be used to facilitate communication and ensure a common understanding of issues. A written log documents and helps to monitor who is responsible for resolving specific issues by a target date. Issue resolution addresses obstacles that can block the team from achieving its goal.”
