Earlier in the month, we released an update to the Weekly Occupancy Report. In case you missed it, here’s a recap!
Click More > Occupancy > Occupancy Report > Weekly
There are three new tick boxes with the following functions.
When selecting all options, you will see the table below. Let’s show you through each row.
Click the arrow on the top row to open or close the attendance details.
This is the amount of children who are expected into nursery with all holidays, absences and extra sessions taken into consideration.
This is the amount of children who were due to be in nursery with holidays, absences and extra sessions excluded.
This is the amount of children on holiday, absent or attending an extra session on any given day.
FTE percentages are calculated based on children’s session sets and do not factor in extra sessions, holidays and absences.
There are some BIG changes to the Accident & Incident Reports. We have improved the design, navigation and, drum roll please … added digital signatures! Let’s take you on a tour:
Click More > Accidents and Incidents
Add your chosen title and select the amount of children involved. If you are selecting 1 child, this will create an Accident Report and if selecting more than 1 child, this will create an Incident Report.
Click +Create to open the screen below.
You can write the details of the accident or incident inclusive of the risk assessment.
There is the ability to change the date and time and you are able to
select the staff members involved. This includes:
Once you have completed the report, you are able to send to a Manager for approval or, if you have the correct access level, you are able to approve the report yourself.
If you are collecting signatures on paper, select the toggle to specify when the staff member or parent has signed.
Click Add Signature next to each staff member or parent. They can use their finger or stylus to sign onto the tablet.
Reports can be exported & printed from the platform in the format of a PDF. If the report is amended on the platform, signatures will need to be obtained again as the report has be edited and the changes will need to be acknowledged.
We are currently obtaining feedback for the new Accident and Incident Reports! We would like to know how you are using the feature operationally, aspects you like and are helpful & areas you would like us to improve and why.
We have improved our Staff Access Levels.
Click More > Staff > Edit Pencil.
You are only able to downgrade your access level and can not self upgrade. This is an extra security measure we have added to the platform.
