Abstract

This enhancement is applicable to the PROFS Program Product and expands the note acknowledgment function by marking the actual notes as acknowledgments are received. In the current product, if a user requests an acknowledgment on a note sent while in the Send Note function, the acknowledgment returns to the sender as a separate note in the user's electronic in-basket or "Open the Mail" function. This design causes confusion to the user when trying to correlate the acknowledgement note with the original note sent since, to confirm which note was received, he needs to remember the date and time referenced in the acknowledgment, then exit the "Mail" function and enter the Note log to identify the referenced note. With this enhancement the acknowledgment would be posted back to the original note in the note log.
