The Restricted Census Access feature is an optional database enhancement used to configure client chart access for users with the "Restricted Census Access" permission. That permission restricts users in ALL programs they have access to so that they will not see any client charts unless they are specifically granted access to those clients within this feature.
TIP: For detailed information on what AWARDS looks like for a user with restricted access, click here.
Because the Restricted Census Access feature is optional, it is not automatically available in all databases. When requested, it is turned on behind-the-scenes in AWARDS. (Contact the Help Desk to make this functionality available in your AWARDS database.) In order to use this feature once it has been turned on, you must have the following permission:
Restricted Census Access - Configuration
In addition, unless you are a member of the "Executive Officer" and "System Administrator" user group, you must have at least ONE of the following permissions:
Display Executive Administration Buttons
Permissions Data Entry
Permissions Data Entry for All Staff and Layers
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.
