I have marked all items as done and that's because we have scheduled almost all of them or have taken a note about them in Martin's plans for the first 3 months. We will track progress towards them in that doc. I will leave this task open until all those tasks are completed, likely by November 2019.

This is now done. There are a few touch-points with folks in Product that were involved in the first and second onboarding project that MGerlach worked on and those are not required steps for closing this task.
