Interactive Highlighting


Interactive Highlighting allows users to dynamically illuminate records while navigating their charts in Viewer. Users can build and combine highlights to locate specific employee records, and see the results in real-time.

If desired, users can save their Interactive Highlights to their My Highlights library, in order to easily toggle them on without having to rebuild them. Interactive Highlights saved to the My Highlights library are unique to each user, and persist between logins.
