The latest version of the application includes several changes and new features for everybody. Among those, a new invitation workflow make is easier to connect with others caregivers. Several usability enhancements were made both on the iOS and the Android applications and several new categories are available on the AppleWatch application.
For child care centers, a new module for parent sign in / out and a new customizable welcome email are also available in this new version.
New module for parent Sign in / out
When this option is activated, parents receive a 4 digits personal code to sign in and out their child in the center.
When a parent arrives at the child care center, he will enter his 4 digits code on a dedicated device to sign in the child.
The app will show the list of children that the parent can sign in for approval.
For pickup, parents will use the same device and code for signing out.
The sign in/out time and the parent name are saved on the child history. It is included in the daily summary email. The information is also used for attendance reports.
The option is available to Professional and Enterprise subscriptions. Child Care administrators can activate it in the settings > Sign In / Out page.
Invitation code and Welcome Email
We’ve improved the invitation workflow with invitation codes and better emails. It’ll be easier to connect with others caregivers.
In addition, for Professional and Enterprise accounts, an email is automatically sent to first-time users to explain how the application is used in classrooms. You can personnalize this email in the settings > customize email page.

Thanks for the nice update. Just a nitpicking thing: What you referred to as “iWatch” in your articles and release logs is not an actual thing. It’s “Apple Watch”. Apple can’t use “iWatch” as the brand because some euro company beat them to the trademark. Please use the correct term.
Again, thank you for your great app. Helped us everyday for the past 5 years since our baby was born. Can’t live without it.
Thanks for the comment. We’ve updated the post with the correct AppleWatch term.
