We have improved the way Blossom handles funding allocation. We have changed the navigation, design and sped up the process to save you time.
Click Finance > Funding. Here you will be able to see the funding overview screen as shown above.
Click + Create to add a brand new funding type. This is the same process and format as before to keep the feature familiar and consistent.
There are a range of filters to narrow down your search.
Based on the date picker, you will be able to see the children in a list format and whether they have funding assigned. Select a child or a group of children and click Assign Funding. This will allow you to bulk assign a funding type from your drop down. That’s right, BULK ASSIGN in one action.
If you have Automatic Funding, job done!
If you have Manual Funding you will need to apply the funded hours to the child’s sessions. Click Allocate and this can be completed in a neat pop-up.
If you are not sure if your funding is Automatic of Manual, check out the simple cheat sheet below!
You are also able to add multiple funding types so why not add the whole academic year!
After the great response from last month’s occupancy release, we then went on to enhance this feature even more so.
More > Occupancy > Occupancy Report > Weekly Occupancy Report
The report shows the children behind the numbers and which children are present, absent, on holiday or have extra sessions booked.
For a detailed view, click the arrow to open up the drop down!
We have created a new ‘System Owner’ role. This role is typically the Primary Contact for the nursery. There can only be one System Owner.
To update your System Owner, click More > Settings > Nursery Info. You will not be able to change the System Owner within the Staff section.
The System Owner role is only eligible to Nursery Managers. When upgrading a staff member to a System Owner, you are also upgrading their access levels to Manager.
