An In-Out Board is available for use in tracking people's movements.


The In-Out Board is a system that allows HowNow to record and track the locations of all users.




The In-Out Board works by showing an icon against every person in the left-hand panel. A green icon indicates the person is 'In', an amber icon indicates the person is 'Busy' and a red icon indicates that the person is 'Out'.

A In-Out Board panel beside the person's details shows details of the current status details: status, date and time of return, a reason description and a comment.

Clicking the Change Status button displays the In Out Board dialog and gives you the option of changing the following:

  • Office Status - specifies the in-out status. The options are In, Out and Busy.
  • Reason - allows a standard reason description to be selected. Reason descriptions can be edited by the administrator. See Reason Descriptions for details.
  • Due Back - date and time. Applicable only for Out and Busy statuses.
  • Comments - use this field to add any additional details.
