Views and View History

About Views

In WebEOC, users enter information that is viewed in a pre-defined format. Users input information through a data entry window. The resulting output is displayed in the view.

In the Boards Manager, the terms “input view” and “display view” simply mean the data entry window (input view) and the window to view data (display view).

The ability to create multiple input and display views allows an organization to record sensitive information while at the same time restricting unauthorized access to some or all the data entered. For example, the input view for a Victims status board may include a field to record victim names. Two display views are added: one view is intended for hospital use only and includes victim names, and a second display view used by media personnel hides the sensitive information. The display view that includes victim names would be assigned to a Hospital group, while the view that excludes victim names would be assigned to a Media group, ensuring sensitive information is restricted on a need-to-know basis.

WebEOC allows you to create boards that have single or multiple input and display views based on a single table or multiple tables. These tables correspond to a table in the underlying SQL Server database. This allows an agency to record and filter sensitive information while at the same time restricting unauthorized access. It also provides an easy method of implementing processes through WebEOC.

View History

Each time a view is saved, a version is stored and added to the list in the History section.

  • Each version of a view can be viewed or restored.

  • With each save, a copy (version) of the view is stored along with a record of the date/time, comments, errors, and the user who modified the view.

  • Restoring a view makes it the current/active view and replaces the existing view code.

  • When a user restores a view, a new history record with an updated timestamp is created.
