Childcare Attendance update

We pushed out a minor update to the attendance detail report available on the dashboard. It now shows the number of hours the child was checked in so you don't have to calculate it yourself. 
If the child hasn't been checked out yet we show the time since they were checked in this morning.  With electronic attendance for your childcare or daycare facility you can throw out those paper attendance sheets!

Attendance auto-checkout

We're rolling out a new feature tonight.  At the end of the day we'll automatically check out students so that your attendance sheets for the next day starts every one out.  If you need to edit the time later you can do so on the child profile screen on the device.  This will also ensure daily reports are sent to parents since we will send it when the child is checked out.  Hopefully this will help you save time and keep all of your parents informed!

New Interface for Paperless Daily Reports

Check out how to file daily reports with our new interface! You can access the daily report feature the same way, but the scroll side panel makes classroom and child selection quicker and easier!

Eliminate paper forms and experience childcare daily forms via Tadpoles!

View active "in kids" and select "actions" in the top right hand corner. Tap "daily reports".

Using the scroll on the left hand side, you can a file a batch report for an entire classroom or an individual report for a child. 

For example, to file a batch report for every child at Amanda's Daycare, select that location on the left hand side. Then, tap the type of report at the bottom of the screen to file the details. Once the type of activity has been described, touch "done" and it will be added to every child's daily report. 

To finish filing a child's daily report, select his or her picture to add information, make changes, and view details. Once it is complete, touch "publish" and the daily report will be saved and sent to parents.

The new interface for filing daily reports is simple, quick, and paperless! Save time and energy filing tedious childcare daily forms and download the Childcare by Tadpoles app today!
