We’re always listening out for features that you will value, and this month we are rolling out some updates to make your experience with Blossom smoother than ever, as well as an insight into what’s just around the corner… 

These updates are now live on your platform as part of software update (6.11.0) as of 25th February. 

 

Until next month!

February Software Updates

Designated Email Address

We have added an extra field within the Nursery Information Settings. This field is for the email address you would like to show on your Parent App home page, as shown on the right.

Room Moves

Room Moves

We are continuously making design improvements to the platform. We have identified a few areas of the platform that would benefit from cleaner design or more information into how the feature works.

Look out for new information bubbles and pop-ups! This month, we have added a pop up when editing Room Moves! 

Formative Reports

We have changed the way Formative Reports open on mobile devices! We have thrown out the Zip File and brought in PDF’s. Now all Parents will be able to access Formative Reports whatever the device.

You are now able to filter through Allergies & Additional Dietary Requirements. 

We have also added helpful totals at the top to keep track of children with specific dietary needs.
