Activity

Definition

Completed action or information recorded during the processing of a notification.

Use

You can enter the following information for each activity:

  • A key for the action performed and a short text that can be changed
  • Start and end of the activity
  • Quantity factor (for example, if an activity consisted of sending three units of a material to a laboratory for testing, you can enter the value "3" for the quantity factor)

An activity can apply to the notification header as well as to individual notification items. The activity data is displayed in various degrees of detail on two screens in the notification:

  • On the activity overview
  • On the activity detail screen

The activity overview and detail screens are the same for all notification types.

The main difference between an activity and a task is that an activity does not have a status and cannot be assigned a partner. The activity is used strictly for documentation purposes.
