PDF vs Incident Link
Each type of share has pros and cons related to it.
The PDF version is a good option when the person being shared does not have access to Connect. The PDF file contains all of the captured information at that time as well as embedded images. The history of the incident is not viewable from the PDF. This is a good option when someone needs specific information about the incident, is creating a log of incidents, or as previously mentioned does not have access to Connect.
Sharing the link requires that the person using the link has access to Connect AND the ability to view that incident. Access to view the incident is important to stress because someone could be restricted by permissions of their role or by the status of the incident from viewing. The link is a good way to share internally for quick reference and also to direct a supplier to the incident they just can't find.
