People Tab Layout

The People tab is where you can enter in information about the People involved int he client's life. Biological parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, medical professionals, etc. There are 3 methods that can be used when adding people to the People tab: manually adding the relationship, copying relationships from other cases, or copying from the address book.

Use the "Type" drop-down to select whether the relationship type is for a person or an organization. Depending on what you select in the "Type" drop-down, your options for the "Relationship" field will vary. If the relationship you are looking for is unavailable in the Relationship field, select "Other" and indicate the relationship type in the "Specify" field. 

Additionally, indicate whether or not the individual is an approved visitor and if they are approved for phone calls. You can flag the relationship, which will show in the main People tab view.

Sibling Group

Link together siblings by creating a Sibling Group ID. Once the ID has been created, linked siblings will show in the Sibling Group section on the People tab. Reports and activities can be configured to copy over to siblings to prevent repetitive entry.

If there are siblings not in care at the agency, add the siblings as a relationship under the People tab. 

Use the magnifying glass to search for a Sibling Group ID that has already been created. Click on the ID and then Save on the case profile and the link will be created. For more information on Sibling Groups, see the Related Articles section below.
