The PIMS Start Menu is the first screen you should see when opening PIMS.  This provides you with the following options:

  • Program Data Entry- allows you to enter data about your program, staff, and surrounding community.
  • Participant Data Entry- allows you to enter information about your participants, participant activities, and children.
  • Standard Reports- allows you to generate pre-packaged reports.
  • Custom Queries- allows you to design your own reports.
  • Select PIMS File- allows you to create a new PIMS data table or link to an existing data table.   This form opens up automatically whenever you open PIMS and there is no database attached.
  • Site Definitions- allows you to define your service.  This consolidates the Program and Participant report menus, which were formerly separate.
  • DB Administration- allows you to conduct more technical setup of your database, including options for sharing your data and improving PIMS performance.
  • Accounts Manager- allows you to configure user-based access levels, so each staff can see only their own participants.
  • Change Password- allows you to change your login password.
  • Help- this links to the online PIMS Resource Center.
