Reassigning Child cases to a new parent

I have individuals that are registered as child cases assigned to households (parent cases). As I am going through the validation process we have found that some child cases have joined another household through marriage. Is there a way to reassign that child case (individual) to a new, existing parent case (household)? Thanks in advance!

Hi Rose

I don’t believe i’ve done this myself, but i do think you can do this by doing the following:

1- Have lookup table multiple choice question that looks up the household cases with any relevant filters from your form “location for example to narrow down the case list”
2- use the case ID as the ID field that will be stored
3- go to your form settings, update case properties, and update a case property called “parent_id” with the value you just recorded.
