Modalities

Please Note: This article relates to both the TM2 and TM3 versions of the desktop software.

TM2 Touch Admin allows the user to edit and add new modalities for use within the TM2 Touch application.

By adding your own modalities, you can state the information that you want to record and have it display in the notes section under the formatting you wish it to be arranged by.
