Chapter Eight: Sharing Events

Sharing cases allows a specific case to be open among various jurisdictions during an investigation. Sharing also allows an event to be open to another division that normally can not see that event, but may be interested in that disease event. However, not all users can share events, and if sharing with a user who normally can not see that disease, the event may be read only access.

Before sharing events, users should define the jurisdiction in the Administrative QP. That field may open the event for a jurisdiction, thus eliminating the need to share an event. However, if an event needs to be shared with multiple counties or investigators, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the event you want to share on the dsahboard.

  2. share Click on the share icon in the toolbar. The screen below will appear that shows existing shared cases and allows the user to add a share.

  4. On the Add Event Share table, select the type of access you want to allow with the share:

    View Only Limited - Provides the ability to see a limited number of questions. The person or group the event is shared with will not be able to edit the event, only read the information.

    View Only Full - Provides the full range of questions. The person or group the event is shared with will not be able to edit the event, only read the information.

    View and Update Limited - Users will be able to view and edit a limited number of questions.

    View and Update Full - Users will be able to view and edit the full range of questions.

  5. Select the User or Group you want to share the case with. You can only choose one or the other. If you need to share with both a user and a group, you will have to repeat these steps.

  6. Check the box Allow Delegation to allow the user/group with whom you are sharing the case with to have the ability to share it with another user or group.

  7. share
  8. When finished, click Save and the event will be located in the Currently Shared table.
