When the link is "clicked", it expands to a text block, where Summary notes can be added, and saved (by an "Update" button).

About the plugin

The idea for the plugin came about when some users were asking for a way to summarise / or annotate long incidents (large amounts of updates), and also to leave a summary before going on holiday / Leave. This way someone else could read the summary and get up to date quickly without losing time reading long, numerous updates.
