What are the default observation types used for?

Table of contents

 

Recording observation types allows you to easily filter the Observations log according to the type of observation you're looking for. It also lets responsible parties know what to expect when an observation is assigned to them. 

IMPORTANT! It's important to note that these descriptions are neither fixed nor determine the intended use of each type of observation. Observation types can be used to fit your company's needs and be adapted to your company's glossary. You can also Add Custom Observation Types.
