September 2015 Tips - Person Notes
In-Synch RMS has many fields for recording person information. However, sometimes a piece of information doesn’t fit into any of the standard data fields. Person Notes is a text field that can be used to share this information with other members of your department. The Notes field does not print on any Call or Case report, but can be included on the person's Master Name Index. Adding Notes to a Person With a record loaded in the Person Management window, select the "Notes" button.
The Notes window is broken into two sections: the top of the window will display any existing notes (A) and the bottom of the window is a text field for entering new notes (B).
