Tracking Proof of Vaccination

With classes resuming, schools may be required to track Covid-19 proof of vaccinations from students and parents. One of the ways to do this in QuickSchools is via the Online Forms app. Here we discuss one sample implementation for collecting a Covid-19 Proof of Vaccination via the Parent Portal. This process can easily be extended to students and teachers too.

QuickSchools Library App

Our recent release for QuickSchools includes two key improvements to the QuickSchools Library App:

Look up Book Details by Scanning the ISBN Barcode

QuickSchools will then search the Google library, and pull details for the book, which you can use to create the book record in your QuickSchools Library App:

Student Billing vs. Family Billing

With our upcoming QuickSchools Webinar on Fee Tracking and Online Payments, we thought we’d highlight one of the key concepts, namely Family Billing, and how it differs from the default Student Billing in QuickSchools

Student Billing

By default, all billing is by student. No additional setup is required. Once a student record is created in your QuickSchools, you can immediately start creating Fee Tracking transactions for that student. Transactions will appear under the “Bills” tab of the student record:
