Booking Out

Lara and Gerard’s stay is now over. They have made arrangements to stay with friends. Janine is concerned that Lara and Gerald will be coming back to the House of Hope and wishes she had been able to get Lara into permanent housing.

Despite the client’s long term needs, she now needs to book them out of HIFIS.

Step by Step: Booking Out

  1. Janine finds Lara’s record in the Reception list. She then selects the Book-out button which enables her to book out the selected client or family. Reception screen with client Lara Simpson highlighted and Book-out button circled.
  2. After selecting the Book Out button, the following screen appears:

  3. Now she is able to select Lara and Gerard as a family by selecting the Add all button. Although Gene is not booked in, Janine can still use this button. She fills out the red mandatory fields and selects the save icon to save changes to the record.

Did you know?
Some shelters require that all clients be booked out every morning. In HIFIS 3.8 there is a feature called Block Book-Outs. This enables HIFIS users to book out all clients at the same time.

This feature will be covered in the Beyond the Basics course, Module 4.
