Summary: Do you know about "Field Help" on update forms?

Instructions:
The data input forms in Bivouac have help messages for each field on the form. For example, if you are trying to insert a road bulletin, note that all the data fields are links. Click the link for the field called "InfoDate". What happens is a pink screen pops up with "Field Help for InfoDate".

When you have read the message, push the back arrow on your browser to get back to your input form.

NOTE: If you want to be absolutely sure to not lose your partially complete input, bring up the help page in a separate window by right clicking on the link. Then close the window when you've read the help.

Every field in the system has a similar help message. It is important to read these the first time you insert a new type of record, such as a photo essay or trip report.
