Airbus 320 - Engine Failure with Damage

I have a question with regards to opening the Fuel Crossfeed as per ECAM actions (Simulator)

When asked by ECAM to open the crossfeed, I normally check the fuel page for any leaks and if no leaks are apparent I open the crossfeed. I had a session with a new TRI and his thoughts on the matter was that I should write down the fuel figures in each tank and get back to the fuel page after few minutes later to check for any leaks and then open the crossfeed (by which time there is an imbalance since we left the crossfeed closed)

Although there is nothing wrong with his train of thought, can I please get some feedback on how this is done in your airline as at times I see a lack of standardisation in my operation.

Thanks
