The management tool allows CHAI managers to add patients and users as well as controlling which patients belong to each team and which users can work with those teams. Additionally, you can see overdue tasks and download form entries individually or in bulk for each patient.
(Patients are referred to as clients in the management tool )
How to Access the Management Tool
After logging into CHAI, you can access the management tool by clicking on the User Management Icon at the right-hand side of the header.
Once you reach the management tool, you can bookmark that page if you want to go there directly in the future.
You can return to CHAI by clicking on the logo at the bottom right of the footer.
Note: The management tool organises your users and clients into a structured group of teams. Ordinary users may be granted with team or group manager roles to assist with management.
View the following pages for a more extensive explanation of these structures that are not covered in this guide:
Initial Setup for New Groups
If you are a group manager, the very first time you use CHAI, you will be directed to the management tool to set up your group.
You will be presented with a setup wizard which will guide you through the six steps to creating your group. You can just follow the instructions and click next to progress.
Enter what you would like to name your CHAI group, usually your establishment name. (This name cannot be changed.)

the Search icon at the top of the page.
