Basic Contacts Log

Previous Topic  Next Topic 

The basic version of the Contacts Log feature in the AWARDS Services - Individual module enables case managers and counselors to quickly and easily record contact with consumers.  At the same time contacts log records are being entered or updated, progress notes can also be written to further document each contact.  Contacts log reports can also be generated using the information entered in these records.

Required Permissions

Use of the Contacts Log feature requires the following permissions:

Program Chart Access
Display Any Chart Records Buttons
Display Chart Records Services - Individual Button

  NOTE: Permissions are assigned using the Permissions Maintenance feature.  If you do not have access to that feature and need the permission listed here, please contact your supervisor or your local Help Desk for assistance.

Additionally, though you can view contacts recorded by others using report mode, you can only update and delete contacts log records you yourself entered.  An exception is made for users with the "Surrogate Data Entry - Contacts Log" permission.
