A new enhancement has been added to HPA2 that provides an estimated homeless date to the people list / case screen.
The enhancement was requested, specified and paid for by New Forest District Council to help with their case management process.
They have effectively created a new column listing enhancement for all users of HPA2.
The enhancement can be sorted into a priority date order, particularly useful for prevention and triage cases. The field has been set up to take the date from a task question and is placed to help support the case management processes and give a clear visual view of case priority.
A new question has been added to the Assessment of Circumstances.
In the past the “People” screen listing would look like this:
Now the People screen listing (both per case officer and all cases) has been amended to display a new “Homeless Date” as shown below:
For a full explanation of how the Homeless Date is calculated, check out the Help page.
