Adding Notes in Your Activity Page

Notes can only be added by the user themselves, so this feature is not meant for discussion between a manager and their workers or team.  It’s meant simply for a worker to describe what an individual screenshot was for and to give more detail on each 10-minute segment of time. A user can add multiple notes for each segment of time, we do not limit to one.

After a note has been added you will see an open box displaying the note, which you can also edit if you need to.  This box can be closed at any point in time.

You will also see a button called All notes at the top of the Activities screen.

When this button is clicked it will open up a screen that will show all the notes for the selected user for the selected day.
