Once the record is created, the information previously entered is in the “General Information tab”. Other tabs are now available to enter additional information, such as contact information and household members.
Updating existing records
Information on household has to be updated in order to keep it reliable. For instance, a member might have left the household or a member might have deceased over the course of a project.
Every section in the record has an “Edit” button that allows to modify and update the information. New members can be added by clicking on the + in the “Members” tab. An End date can be added to a member that has left the household.
All household members are recorded as individuals in the system. Refer to the article “Create and edit individuals” to know how to add individuals to the application.
