I manage tree inspections for the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and, first, I'll explain our specific context relating to this idea:
The origin of this idea comes from our tree inspectors not being able tell when new notes have been added to Asset Survey fields in ConfirmConnect. Essentially, we would like it to be possible to show a date stamp in ConfirmConnect notes boxes. To be specific, under the 'Conditions' drop down within an Asset Survey page there are notes boxes underneath each category. Although the defects themselves are date stamped, the notes boxes aren't date stamped, which means we currently need to input the dates manually every time we write a note otherwise we don't know when notes have been updated. It would be incredibly useful if these notes could be automatically date stamped.
I've been advised that, in the broader context, the capacity to add a date expression to the text field in the Comment Library has the added benefit of being applicable to various other applications so would be of potential help to the wider community.Thanks for reading!ChrisTechnical OfficerRBWM Tree Team
