Permalinks Feature

Often, multiple users may need to provide a link or bookmark to a specific record. Code On Time applications offer the ability to create permanent links for a record.

First, you need to select a record.

A textbox will appear to the right side of the link, containing the URL (permanent link) for the record. If you mouse over the permalink, you will see information about the record matching the info provided in the Summary area on the left side of the page. You can copy this link to the clipboard and share it with anyone via email or an instant messaging service.
