Can more than one person work on DHEW at the same time?
Yes, the system is designed so that more than one person from your worksite location can work on the online assessment at the same time. Each user from the worksite logs in with the same username/password. However, there are risks to simultaneous data entry. If two (or more) individuals are working on the same section at the same time, one person (the person who enters and saves last) will overwrite the previously person's work. This can cause confusion, errors, and extra work. Therefore, we strongly suggest that worksite data entry efforts be coordinated by a single individual and that workable procedures be established. For example, you might allow only one person to enter data on any given section. Other committee members/individuals who want to provide answers or suggest changes to a section should give them to the person responsible for that section. Similarly, while all committee members/individuals may be involved in the final review, only one person might be designated to make the final changes and submit the assessment.
