#Participants confidential, Participant search, Site search

Updated over a week ago

The (C) tag in ETO software stands for "confidential".

Find Participant (C) provides search results that do NOT include Participants that have Program history in a confidential Program unless the User has access to that Program. The results are pulled from across the Site and include Participants who are currently active and dismissed but eliminates these confidential Participants.

It functions similarly to the Find Participant feature; the only difference is that it removes confidential records from the results.

Setting Up Confidential Participant Search

Site Administrators have the option to make Programs confidential on the Manage Programs page. Examples of Programs that might use this option include those providing services to Participants with health concerns or whose safety is at stake, such as survivors of domestic violence.

Site Administrators also control staff access to different Programs from the Manage User Accounts page. If a User does not have access to the confidential Program, the User will not be able to view any Participants with Program history in that Program.

Using Find Participant (C)

Find Participant (C) should be added to the Navigation Bar if any Programs in the Site are confidential. The Find Participant feature allow Users to search across all Programs in a Site, regardless of which Programs they can access.  When set up properly, confidential functionality will prohibit Users from searching into confidential Programs they don't have access to.

When searching in Find Participant, you must provide at least a partial last name, SSN, or case number to limit the scope of the results. You cannot leave this search box blank.

The Participant Program History will not include any enrollments in confidential Programs unless the User has access to those confidential Programs. Confidential features will not display the Participant's SSN, DOB, or any other sensitive data in the search results.

The Quick Search across the Site will also be marked with a (C) to reflect the confidential features available on the Navigation Bar.
