Best Practices for keeping your data clean and complete

The NEHANET system out of the box identifies a set of system fields in each module as mandatory. As part of the Roll-out, you can identify additional fields that you need your users to fill in for every record as mandatory. Your System Administrator should be able to do this for you. Once you mark a field as mandatory, the system will flag the user with an alert that shows all the mandatory fields not filled in for a record at the time of creation or during subsequent editing/update. The alert stays in the page as long as the mandatory fields are not filled in. You can also click on Omitted Mandatory fields link in your profile settings icon to get a list of all records where one or more mandatory fields have not been filled in. It is a good idea to encourage your users to click on this link regularly to they can keep their data clean and complete.
