Log Entries and Incident Managment

Our district has users enter discipline via log entries.  Another individual will then use the log entries to enter data into Incident Management for PIMS reporting purposes.  Is there a way to 'link' the two modules so that the work does not need to be entered twice.  It seems there should be but I cannot find any documentation on this.  If not, I am sure the short answer is to have all incidents be reported into Incident Management but barring that (may not be a way to do that at this point), is anyone aware of a link between the two so they can 'talk' to each other and avoid redundant work.

Thanks in advance.

@eatons  Unfortunately, those two aspects of PS do not talk. The many reason is back log entries are one-to-one correlation between one student one log. Whereas, Incident Management is a one-to-many correlation. One incident can have numerous students attached to it, but a log entry can only have one student.

In log entries there is an option to include in PIMS incident report.  If I click that, I get all the fields I would need to report the incident.  Do I still need to create a separate incident mgt entry?  Or will that information be uploaded to PIMS?

Based on the response I recevied, yes you do.  The Log Entries and Incident Management systems DO NOT talk to each other and the PIMS templates pull from Incident management.  Unless there has been a change I am not aware of, that is still the case.

Is there anyway to connect with you regarding PS Incidents. Our district is struggling.

I am wondering if anyone has any updated information.  Do the Log Entry and Incidents talk to each other now?  Or is it necessary to duplicate the information to be able to report out to PIMS.

Hi @akmiec 

 

Log Entries and Incidents are two different processes entirely. So, currently there is no way to transfer information between the two.

 

You can share this as an Enhancement Request on  PowerSchool Ideas Portal so that the product team can take a look at this. This article should walk you through how to raise an Enhancement Request. 

 

You would need to refer to the PA state guide for the Incident Management setup required for PIMS reporting.
