Awards Comments & History

The Comments & History section displays entries for events in the award request process. You can also add a comment at any time. The entries display in reverse chronological order, so the most recent one is first.

The following image shows an example of this page for a fully processed award.

The table columns are:

  • Action Taken: Event that created the entry; described in a table below
  • Timestamp: Date and time of the event
  • Name: User whose action triggered the event or who manually added a comment
  • Comment: Text of the comment, either system-generated or user-entered

Note: not all actions have comments. For those entries, a dash (-) will appear in the Comment column.

You can manually add a comment by selecting the Add Comment button above the table, as shown in the following image.

A dialog window will display. As you start entering your comment, the Add Comment button in the lower right corner of the window will be enabled. Select it to save your comment.

You can only delete your own manually added comments. To remove the comment, select the trash can icon to the right of the comment in the table it.

You can also add a comment from anywhere within the Award Setup Request by selecting the “more actions” (3 vertical dots) icon at the far left of the header, and choosing Add Comment.
