New release for visiting

To kickoff your weekend we've got a great new release available for update in the app store this morning.  We've also updated our website with several new features.
Here's a summary of some of the new features:

  • Collapsing classrooms
  • Visiting older rooms
  • Real-time sync for multiple devices
  • Track vacation and sick days

We added a new option in the child profile screen called "visit classroom".  After selecting it you can then select the classroom to move the child into for the day.  At the end of the day, when you check the child out they will automatically be moved back to their homeroom.

We wanted to help providers that allow their younger children to visit older rooms during transition.  You can use this same feature for collapsing or combining classrooms at the end of the day.  You can move a child to multiple classrooms and they will always be moved back to the original homeroom.

If you have multiple devices you'll see these changes reflected on each device in real-time.  That ensures your counts are always accurate whether you're looking at them on the mobile device or from the web.

Lastly, the "track vacation" action from the child profile screen allows you to keep tabs on who is scheduled for today or out for the week.  You'll see the child on the out screen moved to the bottom and can view your attendance report from our website and click on the specific day to see the details captured from your iPhone or iPad.

In a follow on post we will walk through several of these new features in detail to help you start using them.   Let us know what you think!
