If you have appropriate rights, you can add new family records to your organization database.

When you add a new family to your database, you must enter information for the head of the household first. Once you enter the head of household and family information, you can add members to the family record. The existing family members, family address information, and family phone number display at the top of the page.

Adding new family records creates a change request. Before the new records display, an administrator must approve the request in ACS People, then upload the changed record to Access ACS.
