The Contact Log is a tab that exists on the clinical cases of clients and groups. The Contact Log is a great tool to log any and all communication that takes place outside of a regularly scheduled appointment.
Only staff assigned to the case or staff with admin permissions can access the contact log. To access the contact log follow these steps:
- Search for client
- Click on Notes under the Actions column.
- Click on the Contact Log tab of the case
On the tab you will see a list of all contact log entries if they exist and the option to add a new contact log note:
If it's a Group Case you will have the opportunity to log the contact under the desired client from the case. Next to Client Details click on the client's name to see other options.
To add a new Contact Log entry click on the +Note button:
You will then be taken to fill out information of the Contact Log entry:
Client Details: This will show you the name of the client you are entering the note for.
Date/Time: This should be the dates and time the contact took place.
