You may have noticed some changes to your accounts in the last few weeks, here are the details….
Have you ever been frustrated when searching for a child, parent or member of staff and felt like it took forever? Our new search bar solves this – just type two or more characters into the bar and it will quickly return all the available people on your site. Couldn’t be easier!
You will also now find a new tab at the right hand side of your screens named ‘Help’. We’ll be adding in frequently asked questions to this section and you can also use it send us a message directly if you have any questions or are struggling with how to do something.
New user role
For our primary school customers you will now see a new user role available for you to assign to staff – Principal Teacher. We are able to consider adding new titles in should there be the demand. These changes affect all customers so we can’t promise to accept every suggestion.
Child Start Date
A small change but, the child start date can now be entered on a child’s account. This is optional.
In case you haven’t spotted it, you are now able to create a custom area for parents to add simple observations of learning at home. It’s dead simple to set up and is another great way to encourage parents to take a more active role in their child’s journal. Full instructions can be found here
iOS app update
As many of you will know we launched our app for iPads at the beginning of the year. Unfortunately we had quite a few technical issues with this and had to remove it from the App Store. We’d ask all customers to stop using the app for the moment until we get our update completed.
We are currently in the process of a rebuild and will release this first to Apple devices, then to Android as soon as it’s ready.
