The AWARDS Employee File Cabinet enables users with the appropriate authority to upload files to attach them to the records of a specific employee. Once uploaded, those files can be accessed by anyone with the authority to view that employee's staff information.
Uploaded files open in a new window, outside of AWARDS, using the software that was used to create them (i.e., Adobe Acrobat or Microsoft Word). If changes are made to a file once it has been opened and the updated file is saved on the user's device, those updates will not be reflected in AWARDS; rather, the updated file must be uploaded in place of the original version.
TIP: In addition to the Employee File Cabinet, separate Client and Agency File Cabinets are also available in AWARDS. The Client File Cabinet enables users to attach client-specific documents to file cabinets accessible within individual face sheets and the Services-Individual module. The Agency File Cabinet enables users to attach general agency-wide documents to a centrally located File Cabinet accessible to all users.
The Employee File Cabinet feature is available to members of the "System Administrator" user group and to users with the following permissions:
Display Executive Administration Buttons (not required for members of most user groups, including "Executive" and "Direct Care" level groups or "Human Resources Staff")

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.
