About Feedback Module

Basically Feedback module provides a mechanism for users to communicate with system Supporters/Admins with system-related (non-patient-specific) messages. In this new version of Feedback module provides a really cool feature which will automatically Capture the Screenshot and allow user to edit it (highlight/blackout) within Web Browser itself. So this will reduce the time taken to process Screenshots manually. And the users will able to submit their problem/feedback directly to the most responsible person rather than same Admin. Multiple OpenMRS users can be mapped into a single Feedback Ticket by Admin, So faster problem solving can be happen. User-to-User communication is a great way to interact with other users regarding a Feedback Ticket in this new version of Feedback Module.
