This is a part of the New Manager Log in Smart Ops.

As soon as Logbooks are enabled, Users can start creating Log Entries. No additional configuration is required. Admin Users can, however, refine the Log Entry creation and review experience by configuring custom Logbooks.

The Logbook portion of Manager Log is where Logbook settings, such as Logbook preferences and tags, can be set and managed. Default preferences help to provide some guidance as Admin Users define preferred options for Logbooks. While not all preferences need to be set, creating and updating tags are an important aspect of Logbook Settings. 

Once the necessary settings are chosen, new Logbooks can be created to reflect the needs of each Restaurant Location. This includes disabling unneeded categories, setting editing permissions and required fields, and choosing the tags available for a Category's Log Entry. All Logbooks are automatically saved as they are filled out.


The Permissions listed here are associated with Logbooks. These Permissions can be added to Custom User Roles or single Users. Learn more about managing Permissions and Custom User Roles here.


Logbook Permissions are found in the Permission Tree as follows:

  • Manager Log Smart Ops

The Permission Access report can be used to determine which User Roles or Users already have these Permissions assigned.
