Report Management Screen

Edit Mode for Qualitative Reporting

The Report Management Screen has introduced a new feature wherein authorized users can set a report into edit mode.

Once a user accesses a report, the report would be displayed in read-only mode wherein options under Edit and Editor in the header including add and delete report tab are disabled. The Edit button can be chosen to enable edit mode for the current report.
