Predefined comments are a quick way for users to describe standard, repeatable actions taken when responding to alarms, or to provide common rationale for system changes.

The viewLinc administrator may want to include a predefined comment in outgoing system or threshold alarm notifications to provide guidance on actions required. To save time, users can add a predefined comment when responding to alarm notifications to describe a common action performed. Predefined comments can also be used to describe events in the event log.

  1. In System Preferences select the Comments tab.
  2. Select Add.
  3. Type a new comment (up to 300 characters).
  4. Select Save.
If you require that your users add a comment for all system changes/additions/deletions, set the comment preference in System Preferences > General.

You can add predefined comments to:

  • System alarms.
  • Location threshold alarm settings
  • Alarm acknowledgements
  • Events
