The parent app is getting a makeover & you're the first to see the big reveal! We're super excited to offer parents a happier, more streamlined experience, as well as some neat new features!
The app version containing these changes will be released into the Apple App Store & Google Play Store on August 31st. But hey, why wait until then to see what's in store? You're special, so here's a little preview!
We've redesigned the home page of the app to give parents direct access to the most frequently-used app functions; drop-off notes, today's daily report & memories. Life gets busy - the faster & simpler it is for a parent to get to the information they need, the better!
Tapping the, "Dropoff Notes" button on the far left will bring you to a screen where you're able to enter a variety of different items for teachers' use throughout the day. Tapping the, "Touch to add" button next to any item will open a new window where you'll be able to enter details about your child's night/morning. You'll notice some new fields are available, but just like always, these details will be sent directly to the teacher's app to inform the child's schedule for the day.
Tapping the center button will open up the child's most recent daily report. Parents can use this button for quick access to the day's events.
Tapping the memories button on the right side will bring you to a screen where you're able to view historical data. Use the filters available on the bottom to customize which communications you'd like to view. Tapping the month button in the top right will allow you to switch children or edit the timeframe you're viewing.
Another new feature is the ability to swipe through photos in the memories section - parents can now just slide through pictures instead of needing to manually open each photo to view!
We're thrilled to bring you some neat new goodies for your families. Hope they love it as much as we love you (and that's a lot)!
