Edit Work Item Permission


Edit Work Item Permission allows users to edit a particular work item record. The Edit (Pencil) icon will appear when the permission is granted. In Orcanos, due to regulatory requirements, the Edit refers to the user’s ability to edit records’ text and perform actions such as; adding attachments, creating traceability, and editing work item record metadata (fields).

The Edit operation can be accessed from several locations on the Orcanos system:

  1. Work Items grid – Presented in the Action column of the grid
  2. Edit Work Item – On the top-right corner of the work item record
  3. Edit Field – Hovering over the field

Work Item records are referred to as; Test Case, Action Item, ECO, CAPA, Software Requirements, Risk, DMS items etc…
