I'm going to be renovating a client website in the near future. However, I had a lot of manual processes with my first client that I'd like to change, particularly with my back-end organization of things and how I communicate with the client.
One improvement that I plan on making is maintaining an up-to-date list of specifications and progress and making it available to my client through some medium (either through email or through a password-protected area of my site).
I have the two things to consider:
- I plan on emailing a status update on a weekly basis, and
- I may not have an even amount of time to work week-to-week.
Considering that, should I share progress on specific specifications with the client, or should it be more of a "general idea" of progress (as would be normally communicated in a status update email)? How detailed is too detailed?
