For ongoing tracking of impact (to use for GRIPP2) we recommend this Public Involvement in Research Impact Toolkit. The PIRIT Tracking Tool is a simple spreadsheet to record when and how the public contributed, what they hoped to influence, what changed (if anything), why it matters, and the related standards.
