Due to the tremendous amount of feedback to our original Sign-In / Sign-Out Sheet App which was released in our App Store very recently, we’ve introduced some new improvements which now allow parents to be assigned a PIN which they can use to sign in their own children.
PIN numbers are unique to each parent. And the administrator for the app can generate/view PIN numbers as necessary. Once the PIN numbers are communicated to parents, parents can then sign in their children using the appropriate screen.
The idea here is that the school would make a terminal available on site for the parent to sign in. This can be any internet-enabled device, including tablets and the iPad. Once the screen is enabled, it occupies the entire screen (i.e. full screen mode), the parent will only be able to sign in their children using a PIN (no other functions are available to the parent).
Once the PIN number is entered, the parents can then select one or more of their children, and click on “Sign-In” to sign the students in. The system will keep track of the sign-in times.
Likewise, when signing students out, the parent simply enters his/her PIN number, and the parent can then sign out his/her students.
Let us know what you think. Thanks!
