There are times when the school needs to track when students arrive late to school, or when they leave early. In most cases, you can use the Sign-In/Sign-Out app in QuickSchools, which works like a kiosk for signing in students on premise. If you want students/parents to notify the school of late arrivals or early dismissals from their portal, then the Online Forms app might be the better way forward.
Here’s an example of how you can use the Online Forms to allow parents to notify the school about late arrivals and early dismissals. A parent simply needs to log into his/her account and fill out the form every time their child comes in late or needs to leave early.
The form can be as simple as the example form below. The parent will fill out a few fields and then submit the form.
Parents can use the same link to submit the same form over and over again, for different days, or for different students.
As an administrator, you can be notified via email whenever a form is submitted. You just need to add the appropriate emails when configuring the Notification Emails:
As more and more schools go virtual in today’s changing climate, students need a way to submit homework assignments to their teachers online. Quickschools is still building a dedicated homework submission feature. But for the interim, students can use the Private Messaging feature to submit their work. Here are the steps:
Log in to Quickschools and go to Directory tab
Search for the teacher then click the “Send Message” link across the teacher’s name
Write a message, attach the homework and click Send
To view all private messages, just click the mailbox icon next to your name on top of the page:
Please note, you can still generate your own custom reports using the Report Creator app.
The Online Form app is often used for online student re-registration. During this process, administrators need visibility into students who have NOT submitted the re-registration forms, so they can follow up with students and/or parents before the due date. Administrators can also use the report to track existing entries, including students who have started but have not submitted their forms. The reports below provide these information:
Missing Online Forms – lists students who haven’t submitted the forms for a particular Form Packet.
Online Form Submissions – lists the students who have started and/or submitted forms for a particular Form Packet
The Online Forms app also allows schools to collect fees on submission, and the Paid Online Form Submissions report lists payment information for each submission.
To enable these reports, just go to MY APPS and click Configure in the Online Forms app. Enter the role or user who can access the reports.
Once enabled, users can go to the Reports tab to run the Online Form reports.
