Company > Configure Observation Categories and Observation Types

*Admin User only*

It’s easy to log Safety Observations through our Inspections app and in HammerTech.
Users can configure Observation Types including custom fields for raising and closing out the Observations of that type. Creating Observation Category Types and linking them to Observation Types makes it manageable to sort and view the Observation raised in the project.

Instructions

  1. Log into HammerTech
  2. Select Administration from the left hand menu
  3. Select Observation Categories
  4. Select the blue '+' in the top right hand corner
  5. Add the name of the Observation Category
