Managing action codes

Suggest edit
Updated on August 31, 2021

Action codes can be managed through the Action codes item in the configuration menu. This will then provide the user with the list of existing action codes, as well as the abilities to update, create or delete an action code. Action codes, like all other configuration items, will need to go through the approval process before any changes are applied to the system. Action codes can be sorted and filtered in the list when necessary.

Action code information.

To view the configuration for an action code in the system, you would select it from the list. You would then be presented with the Action code info screen.
