What is the Information Board

How do I use the Information Board?

Each row of the Information Board displays the priority of the item, a reference number, the type of information, a description, potential impacts if applicable (these are generated from the impact assessment categories that have been predetermined as part of your iluminr setup), the author, time and date created.

An attachment icon will display if applicable and any rows with new or updated information will highlight in light purple.
