Creating Field Notes in ExakTime Connect

Field Notes can be created in ExakTime Connect as well as in ExakTime Mobile; however, there are key differences when using one method over the other. This guide will cover specifically using ExakTime Connect to create Field Notes.

Table of Contents

Creating Field Notes from Field Notes Page

  • Go to Tools and click Field Notes. You should see previously created/received field notes if any.



  • Click Add a Field Note.


  • Specify the type of field note, the subject (the entity the field note is related to), and a short comment.
    • The type of field note must be selected first before you can select the subject.
    • Photos and voice notes cannot be added to a field note from ExakTime Connect.
  • Click Done to save your field note.


Unlike in ExakTime Mobile, you cannot attach audio files and or pictures to Field Notes created here. You also cannot edit the created date for field notes after creation.
