Case Involved People¶
People involved in a case can be documented in JustWare, making it easy to record and reference useful information about them and their involvement with the case. This snap-in also includes a convenient hyperlink to the name session of any involved person.
Adding a Case Involved Person¶
- Click the Case Involved People snap-in in any open session.
Enter all applicable information in the fields provided.
Some fields may be required while others are not. Contact your JustWare Administrator to learn which fields are required for your organization. Below are some tips to remember when entering information.
Fast-Path: Specify Involvement, and Name; click Save Case.
If the involved person does not belong to an agency (e.g. witness, victim, defendant), this field is left blank. Only agencies listed in the Agencies snap-in will be included in this list.
If an agency has been selected, only involvement types that correspond with the agency will be included in this list.
The options in this list will be determined by the selections made in the Agency and Involvement fields.
Changing the name of the Case Involved Person will cascade that change throughout the case. Meaning, the new name will be changed on all events, tasks, financial obligations, etc. If a payment has been taken for the Case Involved Person, JustWare will restrict you from changing the name.
This field can be configured to serve a customized purpose for your organization.
