New Sign-In/Out App Reports

The Sign-Out/In App is a popular app in the QuickSchools app store. Schools use this app to handle many different needs such as tracking when parents drop off and pick up their students, tracking what time students enter and leave after-school programs and activities, etc. We recently added a few new reports to the Sign-In/Out App app to help see your data in different ways. Once the app is installed you will see the reports under the Summary Reports tab:

Attendance Reporting

We have several canned reports in QuickSchools under the “Summary Reports” module, related to Attendance. Here’s a quick list of the most relevant reports:

  • Attendance Summary
  • Attendance Exceptions
  • Attendance Not Yet Taken
  • Consolidated Attendance

Attendance Summary

This is the main report used to view all attendance records. There are several filters available:

Filters for the "Attendance Summary" Report
Filters for the “Attendance Summary” Report

And there are several Report Variations available:

Variations (or Formats) of the "Attendance Summary" Report
Variations (or Formats) of the “Attendance Summary” Report

Note that each Report Variation is simply reformatting the data in a different way. But they all work off the same data, based on the filters applied to the report. All Summary Reports work this way. Here’s an example Report Variation of the “Attendance Summary” report called “Attendance Detail”:

Custom Attendance Codes

The Custom Attendance Codes app has been in the QuickSchools App Store for several years now. The app itself has not changed much, but there are a couple new features to mention. So we thought we’d revisit this app and it’s functionality.

The Custom Attendance Codes app essentially allows you to

  • Create additional attendance codes specific to your school
  • Allow teachers to use custom attendance codes while taking attendance
  • Note/record attendance codes to be applied in the future
  • Inform teaches of applied attendance codes when taking attendance

Configuring Access

The Attendance Codes app essentially has 2 components that in combination can address the scenarios above, and these are (1) the Attendance Codes themselves, and (2) a Daily Status which is essentially the application of the Attendance Code on a date range. When configuring the app, you can keep these components purely for administrators, or you can allow teachers to view them on their Attendance roster:

Configure Access to the Attendance Codes App
Configure Access to the Attendance Codes App

Custom Attendance Codes

Users with administrative access to the Attendance Codes app will have the ability to view/edit Attendance Codes under the “Codes” submenu (under the main “Attendance” menu):

Manage Custom Attendance Codes for your School
Manage Custom Attendance Codes for your School

When adding/editing an Attendance Code, the following fields are available to you:

Emergency Contacts Report

We have a new Student Emergency Contacts report available in Quickschools. This report will assist in reviewing the emergency contacts available in your account and in gathering their information.

There are two variations to this report: “Emergency Contacts by Parent” and the “Emergency Contacts by Student”.

To access the report, just search for “emergency”

Both of these reports include the following lists:

  • Only Show Students with ONE Emergency Contact
  • Only Show Students with MORE THAN ONE Emergency Contact
  • Only Show Students WITHOUT an Emergency Contact

Here’s what the reports look like:
