Long Notes in Data Change Requests

  • Browser
  • iPad

Admins can enable a long notes text area for data change requests. When end users submit a data change request, the Notes section, which is used to provide additional information about the requested change, allows up to 1,000 characters.

When a user visits an HCP and wants to submit a DCR request to update the Account, Address, or Child Account information, they can enter lengthy URL weblinks, multiple phone numbers, or feedback in the Notes section. The long notes provide data stewards the information needed to verify the requested change.

Entry Points

The long notes text area is available from the following entry points:

  • Accounts - New Account Wizard, Edit Accounts, Global Account Search, Events Management Attendee Reconciliation

    The Account Preview During Creation Veeva Setting and Network Setting are supported, so Browser users can see the DCR Note section on the preview page.

  • Addresses - New or Edit actions from an Address Related List on the Account Details page
  • Child Accounts - New or Edit actions from a Members of / Members Related List on the Account Details page
  • Call License update
  • Approved Email
