Heard with...multiple times

Recently, 4 protests (#1-4) (with multiple protestees) regarding a single incident!!!  (Pile up at the mark).

It was a little clunky to link all four incidents to the first filed protest.  (I think in the end, we simply linked the first 1#2, and thereafter mentioned in the decision 'Heard with #1' for the other 2).

Maybe I was doing this wrong, but it didn't seem clear to me.  Is this possible?  If so, maybe you could explain how I should have done it better!

Thanks.

It is not necessarily intuitive how this works, so I think it's a good idea to explain it.  Each protest should obviously be entered separately.  If they are entered as a Hearing Request, they will automatically generate a Hearing Decision.  If there is no Hearing Request on the application, you can just create a Hearing Decision and attach a photo or scan of the Hearing Request.  But enter them all first, before you try to indicate which will be heard together.

Once all the Hearing Requests have been entered (or Hearing Decisions created), open the Hearing Decision you intend to use for the hearing.  Usually it's the lowest numbered hearing request.  In your case it was #1.  At the top of the Parties tab, there is a drop down for Heard Jointly With.  You can add or delete as many protests as you like there (of those that are not already heard with another protest).  Once you add them as heard with this protest, they are disabled in the application (you cannot edit them) and they are marked as Heard With Request #.  That's it. You don't need to do anything with the other hearing requests.  They are shown as heard with the hearing you have open.

Thanks.

Just to clarify, the 'Heard with..' drop-down is a multi-select? Is that right? If so, that makes sense. (That was the only thing I didn't try!) 

If that is true, maybe adding a hint that multi-select is available. "Select all that apply." 

Just an idea. 

Anyway, thanks again for the quick reply.

No.  It's not multiselect.   When you select one, it adds it next to Heard Jointly With.  You can then select another.  If you click on any that you have selected, you can delete them.

I thought the linked hearing still appeared in the hearing schedule (printouts and displays) but there is nothing there. Isn't it confusing for the second protest, not to see it on the board?
