Welcome to the Adding a Room or Bed demonstration.

To add a bed in HIFIS, you must first open the Rooms and Beds screen from the Administration menu.

Select the Add a New Record button.

Before adding the bed, make sure that the correct Service Provider is selected.

In HIFIS, the beds are grouped by Room Number. To add a new room, simply enter a number in the Room Number field that has not been used before. To add a bed to an existing room, make sure that the number entered in the Room Number field is the same as all other beds in that room.

Enter a number in the Bed Number field. This number must be unique within the Room that was entered. In the Bed Type field, select the value that most closely matches the bed being added. If the bed is overflow or mobile, indicate this in the appropriate checkbox.

If the bed is not currently being used, choose the reason in the Bed Status field.

In the Date Put in Service field, enter the date that the bed was first added to the shelter.

Select the Save button.

This is the end of the Adding a Room or Bed demonstration.
