How do I keep track of all the areas of need for the person I’m supporting?

Tier: Basic, Professional, Enterprise


Profiles are useful tools for keeping track of referral information and statuses. A profile is automatically generated when a referral is sent or logged for an individual or Assessment has been completed on behalf of an individual. If your organization has set up a Launch Integration, this will also automatically generate a Profile, when you access your site through the integration.

As you are conducting a search for an individual and referring them to various programs, all of their referrals  automatically populate in the Navigation History section and are sorted by newest to oldest. The Goals section of a profile is where you can organize referrals and track specific areas of needs for the person you are helping.


You must be logged in to view Profiles.
