We have made a lot of progress over the past 6 months! Migration needs from the related data systems that First Steps currently uses have been identified, and several KITS modules have been developed and tested.

  • User Dashboard: This module provides features for the overview dashboard, including alerts/notifications and pending/completed task items.
  • System Administration (sample screen shown below): This module provides features that allow KITS system administrators to manage user accounts, roles/permissions, lookup values, and other issues managed by highly privileged users.
  • Organizations, Program Staff, and Workforce: This module provides system administrative features required to add, review, edit, and manage First Steps organization and workforce records.
