Many organizations are preparing to telecommute. Here are a few ideas on how to quickly leverage your JustFOIA solution in the event your staff needs to work remotely:

1. Rapidly Go-Live With Your Implementation

If you have recently purchased JustFOIA and have not yet gone live, you may want to consider expediting the process so that you and your constituents can take advantage of the benefits.

2. Review Your Public Portal

Ensure you have made the Public Portal live and available so that constituents can submit requests, receive request documents, etc.

3. Avoid Manual Redaction Mistakes

The new built-in JustFOIA Redaction module, this is a helpful resource if your staff shifts to remote work and need a fully integrated/electronic method for redacting records. Sharpies to block out text is not ideal for a remote work environment!

4. Update Your Request Forms

If you plan to have any office closures or any other information that you want to list on your public-facing forms, MCCi support is ready to help if you need assistance.

5. Adjust Your Calendar in the Event of a Closure

You can manually adjust your holiday schedule in the calendar options, to ensure non-working days won’t count in the response time.

6. JustFOIA Supports Other Types of Requests

JustFOIA can support other processes to give your constituents/customers better access to your services without the need to travel to your location physically. Our customer success team is happy to explore those opportunities with you, simply email us at customersuccess@justfoia.com.

7. Take Advantage of the New Training Center for JustFOIA

You are registered as a user on The Training Center for JustFOIA. If you have an issue logging in, please contact our customer success team. This resource provides virtual training to your internal users, and you can also post your record request policies, and custom training resources. This is helpful if you are moving to a more remote work environment.
