Explanation and Purpose of the Address Book

The Address Book is where extendedReach stores all contact information for Cases and Homes. Each agency maintains a centrally located Address Book to allow for simplicity and accuracy when updating contact information. This also allows staff to view all clients who are associated with a particular contact.

Accessing the Address Book

From your Workspace, the Address Book is found within Resources under Summaries on the left side of the screen, otherwise knows as the Side Menu.

Adding a Contact into the Address Book

A User who wishes to Add a Contact must have the appropriate Security Settings to do so. To allow access, an Agency Administrator will check “Manage Address Book” option under Security within a User ID. For more support with User IDs see Related Topics.

The linked relationship you’ve created, between the case and the contact, now appears on the People Screen.
If there is a small book icon next to the contact name, this contact comes from the Address Book.

Should you wish to delete a relationship link between a case or home and a Contact, simply click on the People tab to open the Relationships. From there, click on the Contact you wish to un-link.
