Populating Questionnaires containing Officer Matrix Information
Many questionnaires ask for details regarding the Officers onboard the vessel. When creating questionnaires containing these questions, the system will automatically populate the answer with the data contained in the Officer Matrix. The questions will be highlighted with an image to the right of the answer field.
Clicking the image will open the Officer Matrix in a popup so you can review the Officer Matrix while completing the questionnaire. The textboxes on the Create Questionnaire page have a grey background indicating that the answers are read-only and any changes will not be saved. If you do make a change then the questionnaire you are creating will contain the updated answers.
Note: The above functionality is automatically enabled once the Officer Matrix has been added to the system for the selected vessel. You will no longer be able to change the answers when you are creating a questionnaire; the answers must then be updated in the Officer Matrix module.
Questionnaires that reference the Officer Matrix
If the questionnaire asks a question that refers to the Officer Matrix, then a link will be displayed next to the question, which you can click on, and the Officer Matrix will open in a popup so you can review the Officer Matrix while completing the questionnaire.
