The HMIS Data Export feature in the System Setup module contains CSV import and export functionality which enables users to transmit data from HMIS projects.
IMPORTANT! Local CoC users in HMIS databases must access the HMIS Data Export feature from within the Fiscal module, NOT System Setup.

In order to see the HMIS Data Export feature within the System Setup module, you must be granted access behind-the-scenes by Foothold Technology. (Please contact the Help Desk to have this access turned on for yourself or other specific users at your agency. At that time, please specify which CoC you will be communicating with, or whether you need general access to exporting CSV files.)
If you are a user who has been given the necessary access, you must also have the following permissions:
