  • Update on the Client Outcomes report

    Work is nearing completion on revising this report, to make sure that it can best reflect the enhancements to the system which were made in August. We will let you know when the report is ready to go live again. In the meantime, you can continue to check, add and update your client outcome assessments via the Data Exchange portal. Please see the two SCORE assessment task cards available on the training resources page for step-by step assistance, or you can access previously recorded webinars on both outcomes and reports via the Webinar Library. More information on the system enhancements and on the Data Exchange reports is available on the Training resources and Self-Service Reports pages of this website.
