A positive observation is a comment that is positive or neutral about an item. For example, "Operates as designed" or "Manufacture Data Plate". Observations are useful to ensure a picture is on the report even if it doesn't have a concern.
When adding a concern they appear in the list of Concerns and Observations intermixed and both can have photos or videos attached. In the report, they appear as the last comment for an item. The difference between a concern and observation is as follows:
|Has 2 fields, description and URL Link||Has 3 main fields, description, impact and suggested action. Also has URL link and additional Information|
|Will never appear on the summary page||Can appear on the summary page, based on settings|
|Does not have a significance||Has a concern significance|
|Has no impact on Item Status||Will impact Item Status, based on settings|
To add a new positive observation, you follow the same process as adding a new concern. Notice in each of the scenarios, step 8 is where you distinguish the newly created comment to be a concern or an observation.
