Who should read this manual?
This document provides the definitive description of the features and functions of the RefTracker staff interface, together with guidance in how to best use those features and functions. It should be read by ALL levels of staff using the RefTracker product as it covers everything they need to know about using the system, from entering the details of requests through to providing responses to them on time.
There are various levels of staff that use RefTracker and some levels do not have access to all of the functions described in this manual, so the manual covers the functionality available to all levels of users with notes as to which levels may not have access. Further your system can be tailored to meet your organisation's specific needs and this might mean that your system administrator has completely removed some of the features described in this manual.
Co-requisite: RefTracker Client interface manual.

The RefTracker help system provides useful hints as to how to use RefTracker. It is accessible from the book shaped icon in the header of every RefTracker screen. When you click on the help system icon, it brings up help for the particular page that you are currently on. A header on each help page, provides access to all other pages in the RefTracker help system, and to these manuals, so use it to find helpful information.
If the help does not provide an answer, please ask your nominated RefTracker Supervisor or System administrator for assistance.
