 ServicePoint updates coming soon.
We are not sure of the exact timing of the upgrade, but we are working on upgrading ServicePoint to the next “major” release version.

Don’t Panic, it is not as big a change as the change from ServicePoint 4-5!

This ServicePoint upgrade mostly focuses on a new approach to recording households. We are excited about this change as it is intended to make the correct recording of households easier and to allow tracking of household members who repeatedly enter and leave a shelter, residence, or household.  Needless to say, this will require some changes on the interface and in how things are done.

We are testing a early version of the new ServicePoint. When we and the ServicePoint folks are ready, we will be doing some training to get you ready for the changes.  This is likely to be in April or May but we have no firm dates as yet.
