Viewing the HMIS Data Quality Report

Previous Topic  Next Topic 

To view a read-only HMIS Data Quality Report, complete the following steps from the AWARDS Home screen:

    1. From the AWARDS Home screen, click Administration from the left-hand menu, and then click Fiscal.  The Fiscal fly-out menu is displayed.
    2. Click HMIS Data Quality Report.  The HMIS Data Quality page is displayed.

    1. Click the Program drop-down arrow and select the program for which the report is to be viewed.
    2. In the Date Range fields, type a "From" and "To" operating year date range for which the report is to be viewed.
    3. If desired, click the Show Individual Detail? checkbox to include individual client-level detail at the bottom of the HMIS Data Quality Report page.
    4. By default the Send in AWARDS Message option is checked.  When this option is checked you need not wait for the report to generate, and can navigate away from the HMIS Data Quality Report feature after finishing the configuration process.  This can be a time-saver, especially when working with reports containing large amounts of data that might otherwise take a while to display in AWARDS.  Once the report is ready for viewing, it is sent to you in the body of a message accessed via your Messages module inbox.

  NOTE: When using this option the report will remain in your messages for one month, after which time it will be deleted.  (The exact date of deletion will be displayed in red at the top of the report message for your reference.)  If you know you will need the report content after that time, be sure to download the Excel file (Excel or HTML content (Report Content.html) attached to the report message.  If you don't download one of these attachments before the message is deleted, you will need to manually re-generate the report if you need access to it in the future. 

Use of this option is strongly recommended; however, it can be de-selected at this time if necessary.

    1. Click CONTINUE.  The HMIS Data Quality Report is displayed on the HMIS Data Quality Report page.

  NOTE:  If you chose to send the report to yourself via the Messages module (in step 6), a notice is first displayed on the page to let you know that report generation is in process and that the report will be sent to your Messages module upon completion.  You can then navigate away from the page, or wait for the report to complete.  If you choose to wait please keep in mind that due to the complexity of the report and the amount of data it contains, it may take a few moments for the report to display. 

    1. Click CONTINUE.  The APR is displayed on the HUD Annual Performance Report (APR) page.

The process of viewing an HMIS Data Quality Report is now complete.
