Ratings and Reviews
This app is mostly good. I’d like to be able to see and process payments for Events on the app, or at least get a notification that new Events have been added. Currently there is no way of knowing an Event has been added without logging into the website version.
Also, when I check my child’s Dashboard, the date option doesn’t appear until I have selected an activity and then returned to the dashboard screen. This means on days where she has no activities ie weekends, we’re unable to check what activities are coming up over the next few days.
Otherwise I find it fairly user friendly.
Not too bad
This App from a parents point of view is Ok. I have an issues that on occasion it won’t let me put approvals in...the app say sorry, can’t perform that task. Meaning I then have to go to the website (more time being wasted). When viewing approvals on the app, they do not come up in order of date, so when checking your approval went through you have to scroll through to find the approval. When opening messages sent from the school you are unable to turn the page when you turn the phone to the side, making it difficult to read news letter etc.

Constant re-authentication required
Why do I have to enter my password every time I open the app? If this iss this a new “feature” it is an extremely annoying one.
Apart from that, the app works, but usability testing and workflow is clearly not the developer’s strong suit. Notifications are not in date order, a browser needs to be opened to see any further information, back buttons don’t exist, i.e. when clicking on a subject in the schedule you have to go back to the home screen, then the browser, then the schedule to look at the next subject.
Please fix the app. If nothing else, please fix the log-in issue.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
