Saving & Submitting an ASSET Assessment

Fri 11/03/2011

If you have been experiencing difficulties with saving or submitting assessments on ASSET please follow these simple guidelines:
When saving or submitting an assessment you must always wait for the green confirmation message and for submitting assessments the time & date to be stamped on the top of the form (please see attached picture) before navigating away from the page. This can take more time that expected due to the nature of Trust networks. Leaving early can cause your data to be lost.
If the assessment does not submit after some time has passed print the form (using the browser’s file and print options) and fax it to us on 0207 092 6193.
Please ensure that all of the fields are completed and visible.
