Hello System Administrators,
Bitfocus is excited to announce the new feature enhancements associated with the 2020 HUD HMIS Data Standards updates have been released in all training sites as of September 10, 2019. The release date for all production/live instances is October 1, 2019.
The 'Clarity Human Services: Data Standards Feature Update' article summarizes these updates.
|Please note: If Bitfocus provides your system administration services, your team is already planning for these changes and will be working closely with you to ensure a smooth roll out.|
For any communities that utilize custom versions of the System screens, the 2020 System screens will be released to live sites on September 17, 2019 and can be copied and modified with local fields in preparation for the Data Standards release on October 1, 2019. Important: Please do not give your users access to the 2020 screen versions until the new 2020 Data Standards go into effect on October 1, 2019. On October 1, please update any existing Program Templates with the applicable new  System screens (or customized versions), in order to make them available to your end users.
We have created training videos that provide an overview of the Data Standards updates taking place within Clarity Human Service. Please click this link to view the videos.
Thank you for your continued cooperation as we work to implement the 2020 HUD HMIS Data Standards. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our friendly Help Desk staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
