Capture facts, assumptions and issues with just one click, link to impacts, attachments and tasks, provide real-time updates and share with anyone.

What is the Information Board

The Information Board is an interactive component of the Event Room, that enables you to collate, categorise and manage information to successfully manage critical events.

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.
