Edit an Improvement Item

Table of contents

After an incident has ended, you can edit existing improvement issues, such as changing the issue's status and working with action items. 


While the incident is still active, you can view log entries added as process improvements in the Event Log by using the log's filter. However, you cannot add these to the Improvement Plan until the incident has ended. For ended incidents, you can also view these items from the tabs where they were created, but you can only edit them from the Improvement Plan tab.

The system automatically sends an email notification to each responsible party you assign to an action item. In addition, the contact is also notified if the assignment is removed. Status changes and other edits are recorded and available from the issue's history.

Note: Improvement issues can be accessed from the Recovery menu, as described in this procedure, or from the Incident Dashboard (select the Improvement Plan tab).
