In order to facilitate capture of information from our various records,
all the detail view pages include Log and View Log buttons, which may be used
to log what is seen on the page, and to verify the current contents of the log.
The search pages also enable selection of record(s), and include Log Selected and
View Log buttons for the same purpose.
While there is no requirement to start the log as such, a Start/Clear Log
button is provided here, and on the initial Indexes page, which clears the contents of the
log, and provides a time-stamped header for a new log.
Printing the log may be done at any time from the View Log page by using standard
browser printing support. It is recommended to use your browser's Print Preview
option to check that actual printing of the log will be as expected. Print Preview allows
you to increase or decrease the font size to avoid line overflows, and ensure you get a
good printout. The View Log page is brought up as a new tab to your browser session.
This means that you may close it after viewing/printing it, or leave it there, and
continue your session by selecting the tab from which you came.
A specific Print Log button is also provided here and on the initial Indexes
page. This is essentially the same as using View Log, except that a final time-stamped log
message is appended to round off the log, before you use your browser (see above) to actually print
