There are two ways to open the Log Entry form on this screen:

  1. Click any of the '+ Log' buttons in the top right to open the Log Entry form



  2. Hover over the 'Mgr Log' menu in the top ribbon and the hover over any of the 'Task', 'Note' or 'Alert' sub-menus.  Select the Log Category in the expanded menu to open the Log Entry form.  The Log Categories you see may be different than those pictured below.  Log Categories can be customized by your management.



Once you select a Log Category, the Form will load in a new tab or popup


Step 4: Complete the Entry


Four types of Log Entries exist, and each has its own entry form.  Click the links below to see a sample image of the forms

  1. Task
  2. Note
  3. Email Alert
  4. Text Alert

Employees will be able to update any of the fields on the forms except for the 'Assigned To' field on the Task Form.  This will automatically be set to your user name and cannot be changed.  Managers and Admin Users will be able to change this field as needed.



Categories and Links - expand this section to update the Location of the entry, change the Log Category, or set a Link To Type



Additional Details (for Tasks and Notes only) - expand this section to review the following:

  • Created By / Date
  • Completed By / Date (for Tasks)
  • Modified By / Date


Step 5: Save


Unlike responding to Task Lists, you will need to Save the Log Entries as you complete them.  Hover over the 'Save' menu and select 'Save & Close' to complete the Entry and Save process



Step 6: Review Entry / Followup Entry


After your Entry has been saved, you can find and review the entry in the Logs View.  Click on the Log Category where the entry was saved, then find and select the Entry.




Double click on the Entry to open the form again and you'll find that '+ Entry' buttons have appeared on the right side of the form (for Task and Note only).  Click one of these buttons to create a follow-up Entry on top of this Entry
