    as discussed

    Dear teachers,

    I've realized that I tend to use the expression "as discussed" in the e-mails (i.e. professional use) I sent to clients/colleagues when I forward a document or an information.

    Actually in most of the cases I did not have a real "discussion" (on the phone for example) with the counterpart but it is something that we mutually agreed before or very often something which results from the circumstances (that I have to communicate this document / information).

    Is it acceptable to say "as discussed" in this situation or shall I use "as agreed" or any other expression? (because there has not been any formal "agreement" between us neither).

    For those who might speak French the translation of what I would like to write would be "comme convenu".


    Thank you for your help


    Guillaume

    If you have communicated and agreed upon something previously, then "as discussed" is fine.

    The closest to "comme convenu" is "as agreed" which is also OK.
