On Wednesday, March 28, 2018 one new enhancements will be launched in ICOTS.
This is the fifth of several enhancement releases to take place during FY 2018. The descriptions of the change is as follows:
1.) Add text field for gang name when not listed in the gang affiliation drop down – Currently, if the name of a gang doesn’t appear in the drop down for gang affiliation, the only option a user has is to select “Other”. With this enhancement, when a user selects “Other”, a text box will appear to allow the manual entry of a gang name up to 128 characters in length. The ability to enter the gang affiliation appears on the transfer request, request for reporting instructions, and the modify offender demographics screen. The new gang affiliation text field, if filled in, will display on the offender profile as well as the ‘Review Offender Information’ section of all the compact activities.
This is an example of the text field being used when adding an offender by creating the first transfer request:
