You could still have your photos stuck to the cube wall and your favorite mug sitting next to your keyboard...but your notes and the copy of this month's report had to be in a locked drawer.
Nope, you can only have personal items in a drawer. The desk and the walls in the cube has to be clean at the end of the day (i.e. you can have notes/mug/whatever during the day, but it has to be removed at the end of the day. Of course computer/screen/keyboard/mouse can still be there), so anyone would be able to use your desk the following day if they should need it. I don't know why the implemented the rule, there are lots of other places to sit.. but nothing to be done about it really..
