We are hoping to implement HIFIS 4.0 by the spring/summer of 2018. Right now, in the beginning stages of the process, we are trying to get an idea of how other communities developed Data Sharing Agreements between agencies.

Is it possible to have a criteria in the HSG1st Menu where dates cannot be the same between entries?  This would help to ensure records follow a logical sequence and prevent data entry errors.</p> <p>Thank you for considering this request.</p></div>Camille NarayanTue, 23 Feb 2016 19:40:18 -0500https://workspaceonhomelessness.ca/hifis/hifiswgdiscussion/hifissoftware/can_hifis_prevent_overlap_of_housing_first_entries
