Comments containing text and file attachments can be attached to following IMS entities:

In all cases comments are for users to leave running commentary about anything to do with the item to which the comments are attached. Some examples are:

  • The reason a trailer was moved
  • A conversation between 2 operators updates on a trigger
  • Commissioning notes

The comment text is constraint-free making it a good catch-all for any business processes that require some kind of text record keeping against an IMS entity.
