Checking the spelling of work tasks and comments

The spell check function is used to check the spelling of the text in either the Work tasks or Comments fields. This is useful before emailing the information to the substitute staff member.

    The UltimateSpell window is displayed.
  2. Change or ignore words that are not found in the default dictionary.
  3. Repeat step 2 until there are no more words to process.
    The following dialog window is displayed.
  4. Click .
    Any words that were changed by you are updated in either the Work tasks or Comments field, as applicable.
