Configure Web Text

Web text is custom help text or policies and procedures for your organization to display on various pages in EMS Web App and EMS Kiosk App. As the EMS Administrator, you can configure this web text in EMS. If you are assigned to an Everyday User security template with web administrator access, you can configure it directly in the EMS Web App.
