"(...) action on my / your side"

Hi,

Is the "(...) action on my / your side" expression correct (sounds ok?) ?
How would you phrase it to make it sound most natural in sentences like:
"There is no action required on your side."
or
"This is all from my side" (during a conference call when you finished your part in the talk)

Thanks!

    I think I've heard people saying "there's no action required from your end", by which I imagine they mean their interlocutor (the person and the other end of the line) need do nothing more than be aware of the given state of affairs.

    Thank you Beryl,

    So you'd rather not use the "on somebody's side" construction?

    Regards,

    I wouldn't use it, no. And I've never heard it either - which is not to say that it doesn't exist.

    I have heard: 'no action required at/from your end'. (I can't imagine using it though. It's simply not my cup of tea.)
