Much of the data stored in IncidentAnalytix is sensitive. The Privacy Control Feature that allows you to control the visibility of data that contains Personally Identifiable Information (like a Person, Witness, etc.). This is particularly important when the data relates to minors, or to staff members and you need to limit who can view the data. The following Data Types now have Privacy Control built-in:

With each of these data types you can set them to Visible (the default when an item is created) or Not Visible (private). The Privacy Control section for this is in the Administration Configuration Section which is also secured by User Access Roles allowing you to control what User Roles are able to manage Visibility.

When an item is marked as not visible it is no longer displayed in the main Incident User Section and it can only be accessed from the Privacy area in the Configuration Section. Since IncidentAnalytix uses a data hierarchy structure with the Incident Event as the top of the hierarchy, if the Incident itself is marked as Not Visible, no one will see it in the main Search Grid and all of the sub-tables connected to an Incident will not be discoverable through the interface. You can choose to keep the Incident Visible and make only those sub-tables that you chose to be Not Visible (ex. Person Alleged, Staff, etc.).

Making a data type Not Visible does not change the data displayed in the Analytics Dashboards. Dashboards still include all data since individual records are generally not identifiable.
