You can take the register for a child multiple times, recording the exact hours they were with you.

USING THE REGISTER

From the left-hand menu select ‘Register’. All the children from your setting will be listed.
You can shorten the list by either searching for an individual child by name, or choosing a group.

NOTE: If you can’t see a list of children on this screen, you might need to do a hard refresh, ‘ctrl shift r’ or ‘cmd shift r’.

You can also change the time, by selecting ‘Use specific time’ and entering a new time.

specific time

NOTE: The ‘Use current time’ option is the default, so you can take the register on the spot, as the children arrive and leave.

The App

Though the current app is not compatible with multi-register you can still use the register on the App as per normal. Sign the child in and out or mark them absent.

Example;

A child was signed in when dropped off by a parent and then signed out when dropped off at school, both times using the App.

app register

The App times will populate the Register on the Admin Dashboard.

The same child was then collected from school and remained in the setting until collected by the Parent. To add the second register you would use the Admin Dashboard.

app edit box

Times will be populated into the Register and the Daily Diary.

app multi times

NOTE: The App will only display the first set of times, both on the register and in the Daily Diary. In this case 07:05 – 08:55.

Clicking ‘Reset’ in the App deletes all entries made on the Register for that child, including any multi-registers entered.

Use with caution.
