The AWARDS Entitlements Assignment at Intake/Admission feature is an optional database enhancement that enables users to record multiple entitlements records simultaneously during the intake/admission process. Entitlement information recorded using this feature is accessible from the Entitlements module Certified Entitlements feature.
IMPORTANT! This functionality is not intended to replace or be used as a substitute for the Entitlements module Certified Entitlements feature. Users will still need to use the Certified Entitlements feature to enter additional information and maintain existing entitlements.
Because the Entitlements Assignment at Intake/Admission feature is optional, it is not automatically available in all databases. When requested, it is turned on behind-the-scenes in AWARDS 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 this feature has been turned on must have the following permissions in order to use it:
Program Chart Access
Display any Chart Records Buttons
Display Chart Records Intake/Admission Button
Referrals Data Entry
Entitlements Deletion (required only if you will be deleting entitlement 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.
