Welcome to the Homeless Individuals and Families Information System Fields demonstration.

Throughout the software, you will encounter different types of fields in which you can enter data.

Text Fields, such as the Name and Address fields, allow you to enter text freely.

In addition to regular text fields, there are also fields that accept text in a certain format only, such as Date and quantity fields.

Drop-down fields, like the Contributing Factors field, have a list of values defined by the Administrator that you must choose from.

All fields that are mandatory are coloured red when you Add or Edit a record. Mandatory fields are drop-down lists that must be selected, or text fields where information must be entered so that the record can be saved.

This is the end of the Fields demonstration.
