Edit Custom Options for Incident Fields


To edit custom field options that were created for the Incidents tool.


In the Company level Admin tool, you can add and edit custom options for certain fields in the Incidents tool. Team members can then view and select these options when creating an incident. This feature allows users to configure items that are consistent with their internal policies and procedures or to be compliant with applicable regulatory requirements.

Things to Consider
