Update DateDeleted Functionality in DIT
The Data Import Tool seems to completely ignore the "DateDeleted" attribute on the Exit HMIS XML Element. If an Exit has been marked as deleted by setting a value to "DateDeleted", existing exists will not be deleted, and if that enrollment did not previously have an exit, that enrollment will be updated with the deleted exit date. This is a major problem as it makes it impossible to accurately import data from external sources, not only is there no way to remove an exit that was erroneously entered into the other system previously, but it is also actively importing garbage data by importing deleted exits. Emergency shelters in the system we import data from regularly reverse exits, as their clients come and go without notice, and many of their enrollments are erroneously reported as inactive in Clarity. This is causing their clients to be passed over for prioritization as they appear to be no longer active in shelter, which is a massive problem.
Thank you for your feedback. We are currently reviewing this request.
