List of Reports from the online report form entries. You are able to assign the Report to any User for their follow up and they will receive an email if assigned. At the bottom of report, you can create a new Incident out of the Report or you can link the Report to an existing Incident. Example: a significant, public incident may have numerous people submitting a report but it would all apply to the same incident.

Incidents can be linked to Reports, Cases, Tasks and Files.
Online report form and tracking for health related issues.
Cases are for in-depth investigation by an assigned User to keep it on track with the investigation and response.
The Charts provide a clear overview of the key Factors. Factors are findings, discovery points, data and relevant information to the Case (previous convictions, health concerns, interview notes, weapons, threats, etc.). You are able to categorize these Factors into Sectors, which can be customized in the Settings.
Factors can be ranked by severity depending on your own judgement. Factors can be ranked by the user according to severity (1-10) to provide a general determination of danger; 10 indicating something that promotes greater risk and 1 being less consequential. The program does not assign a value to any finding but relies on your training and experience to determine.
All related Files, Incidents, Tasks and more are all compiled into the Case record.
