The AWARDS Behaviors feature is an optional database enhancement that enables users to record and maintain records for an individual's target (challenging and positive) and replacement behaviors, and within those records one or more sub-records for associated tracking that has taken place. In addition, this feature enables users to generate customized reports of behavior and tracking data.
IMPORTANT! Behavior and tracking records "belong" to the individual rather than to the program through which they were entered. As a result, all of an individual's behaviors/tracking recorded in one program are visible in all other programs in which the individual is enrolled.
Because the Behaviors feature is optional, it is not automatically available in all databases. When requested, it is turned on behind-the-scenes by Foothold Technology for individual program types. (Contact the Help Desk to provide access to specific program types in your AWARDS database.)
Staff in programs of the types for which the Behaviors feature has been turned on must have the following permission in order to use it:
Program Chart Access
Display Any Chart Records Buttons
Display Chart Records Services - Individual Button
Additionally, by default behaviors/tracking records are only accessible in read-only report mode within the Behaviors feature. If you also require data entry access you must have one or both of the following permissions, based on the type of data entry you will be doing:
Behaviors Data Entry (required to enter and edit behavior records, and to delete behaviors and their associated tracking records)
Behaviors Tracking Data Entry (required to enter and edit behavior tracking records for any existing behaviors, and to delete tracking records)
NOTE: Permissions are assigned using the Permissions Maintenance feature. If you do not have access to that feature and need a permission listed here, please contact your supervisor or your local Help Desk for assistance.
