Standard Narrations in TimeTrak

Standard Narrations are used to provide the ability to pull through data or recurring narrations.

A working example of this may be field staff who have a recurring time entry narration based on the type of work they are doing.

Standard Narrations are housed within the TimeTrak Admin Console under Standard Narrations.

Standard Narrations can be filtered based on the group selector highlighted below.

There is also the ability to Add, Edit and Delete these using the buttons or right click functionality:

Each Standard Narration has:

Name – To allow users to identify what they are selecting.
Type – This defines where the standard narration is available.
Description This is the narration that will pull through when selected.
Access Permissions Available to all users or only users specified group(s)
