Contact Details Overview
|Contact lists are maintained for the railway as a whole, and individual departments.|
Users can set the level of security they require on their contact details:
- Visible only to railway managers for operating purposes
- Visible to other members of the user's departments
- Visible to other members of the same railway
(There is no crossover between railways.)
Identification of who users are considered 'railway managers for operating purposes' is determined by permissions.
|HOPS is ideal for storing staff contact details.|
The system can be configured to store any combination of the following:
- Email addresses
- Telephone numbers
- Dates of Birth
- Emergency Contact / Next of Kin Information
- Medical Details/Restrictions / Medication
- Job Title
- Any other custom field required by railways, ie, membership number, expiry, etc.
|Users can view and edit their own contact details, and railway managers can also be allocated permissions to view/edit the details of users in their area.|
There has never been an easier and simpler way for heritage railways to maintain their staff address list.
|Contact Detail data can be exported in un-marked-up format from HOPS for use in other programs for local analysis or processing using the Reports & Export functions.|
|Contact details can also be retrieved for export in CSV format.|
HOPS is continually being developed and updated. Sometimes the screen shots in these help files might lag behind the most up-to-date views of the screens. Generally, however, the functionality of the page will be the same, albeit with a slightly different format or layout.
