Favorite events are event forms that have been set as favorites for a person. Having favorite events makes it easy for people to create records or access the performance history for those events.
Favorite events may be shown on the browser home page, as long as the role includes data permission for the event forms and system permissions for data entry and the performance history. Favorite events also appear in the sidebars when people use Smartabase in their browser and on the home page of the mobile applications.
People can set up their own favorite events but an administrator can also add favorite events for people through the administration interface. Administrators can set favorite events for an individual by editing their account details with the People tool or using the Favorite events tool to assign favorite events to a role.
Adding favorite events to a role using the Favorite events tool will add the favorite to everyone who has that role, but it will also override any existing favorites. This includes any favorite events personally set up by people with the role you're assigning favorite events to.
In the example below, three favorite events have been selected for a medical practitioner role- injury, illness and medical consultation event forms. These event forms would be frequently used by practitioners when examining athletes so having these forms as favorite events makes them more accessible.
Steps to set up favorite events using the Favorite events tool
- Log in to the administration interface.
- Select the Favorite events tool.
- Click the Add button to select an event form to be set as a favorite event.
- To add multiple favorite events, continue clicking the Add button until all event forms have been selected.
- If applicable, use the arrows to the right of the event form names to re-arrange the order in which the events will appear.
- Select the role you want to assign the favorite events to.
- Once you have assigned favorite events to a role, they will appear on the home page for everyone with that role.
