Managing Participant Information and Tags

Information Items

Information Items act as customisable fields within a Participant's profile where specific details can be stored and organised. These fields help you maintain a structured and detailed record of Participant-related information that is easily accessible when you click on a profile.

How to Create an Information Item:

  1. Click on the Create Information Item button.

  2. In the pop-up window, type in the title of the information you want to record, for example, "Overview" or "Risks and Behaviors".

  3. Decide whether this information is mandatory for all Participant profiles by selecting the Required option.

  4. Click Create to add the Information Item to the system.

Once created, the Information Item will automatically appear on all Participant profiles, ready to be filled with relevant data. This allows for a uniform approach to data entry across your organisation.

Handy Hint: You can re-order your information items by clicking and dragging them to the appropriate position. By doing this, you can order your information items in terms of your organisation's preferences.

Participant Tags

Participant Tags are visual identifiers that offer a quick reference to key attributes of a Participant, such as their communication preferences or specific needs.

How to Create a Participant Tag:

  1. Select the Create Tag button.

  2. Enter a name for the tag that represents the attribute you wish to note, such as "Non-Verbal" or "SMS Only".

  3. Assign a colour to the tag to facilitate visual identification.

  4. Click Create to establish the new tag.

Tags are applied at an individual profile level and are not automatically populated across all profiles. They must be selected and assigned as appropriate for each Participant.

By creating and using tags systematically, you can enhance the efficiency of Participant identification and ensure that staff are aware of key Participant characteristics at a glance.

Handy Hint: When looking at the Participant list, you can filter by tags. This gives you a quick way to assess Participants by a specific tag.
