Activity Log

The Activity Log interface is designed to replace the command center run-book. It allows your staff to track all the comings and goings, all the events of the day, in a simple log book that can be shared across your organization.

The primary interface for this is the Activity Log Management Screen (accessed via the Menu link in the top right corner of the screen).

Live Data

By default, the "Live Data On" toggle is set to On which as new entries are added to the log by any users in the team they will be automatically added to the running list.


Turn this toggle to the "off" position in order to change the date and time of the log - this is helpful when searching.

Selecting the "Advanced Search" option allows the user to define a more gradual strat date and time for the search

  • Area / Location (Required)
  • Category

Once you've done this, enter the Notes for the Activity Log. When you've finished press OK. The Log will be saved and you'll be returned to the Alarm Queue.
