Using Permalinks in ITRP

RecordsA small usability feature has just been added. Now you can quickly open an ITRP record in a new browser tab. Just click on the name or subject of the record when it is in View or Preview mode. This can be useful when you briefly want to park a record while you complete your work on another assignment.

More important, however, is the fact that this feature allows you to copy the URL of a record (i.e. its permalink). With a right mouse click, you can place the record's link on your clipboard.

Right mouse click on Subject of Request to copy permalink
After you have copied the hyperlink, you can paste it in a new note that you are adding to another ITRP record or in an email that you are sending to your colleagues. Your colleagues will then be able to open the record with a single click on the link.

Very convenient, right?
