How to edit record fields in your Papertrail account

Editing record fields of single and multiple items is really simple to do. For example you may want to change the automatically selected 'next inspection date' to one that suits your schedule better.

To carry out this task. select the 'VIEW ALL RECORDS' or 'FOLDER' icon to navigate to the records your want to edit

In this example we have chosen 3 'DAILY ROUTINE VISUAL INSPECTIONS' that we want to temporarily suspend inspections for.

Click on the 'INSPECTION BOX' dropdown arrow and select the 'EDIT' option:

Once you have done this an 'EDIT 3 RECORDS' dialogue box appears, click the 'select a field' box and you will see which fields you can edit:

In this example we will use the 'Next check date' field and need to enter the date you want in the empty field box and select 'SAVE'

All the records selected will now have the new inspection date.

Please remember that this doesn't affect the inspection frequency or due period of the item which will revert to its normal cycle immediately after the newly scheduled inspection.
