Navigation needs work
It’s an app that does the job with lots of potential, however I believe user experience needs a bit of work. For example, inside the student profile, when I tap on the Tasks tab > Subject > select a task, after I read the content and tap on Back, I arrive the Dashboard tab. I would expect to go back to where I came from right? And then when I go Back again I somehow would go all the way back to the landing screen (not the profile screen), then I have to tap on the profile again and go through the whole process again to look at other tasks. Also prefer to have notifications icon/tab appear on the landing screen.
Being a student this app has made my life so much easier. As like most teenagers I basically have my phone with me everywhere I go so when I am at school I can just pull out my phone and have a look at my timetable and the daily notices. Even when a teacher is away it tells you who you have instead or even is you have a room change which I super handy so that you know where you are going. Even if you are away or something teachers can put up lesson plans of what you do in class and they can also put up any assessments if you have any. This app can also send messages to parents if your child was absent from school so that you are aware or if you know they are going to be away instead of having to write a note all the time you can just do it online so that way you know that the message was receive can by the school and you dont have to worry about your child having to hand on the note and then receiveing unexplained absence. I have found this app has made school so much easier for both the students and the teachers
This app is mostly good. I’d like to be able to see and process payments for Events on the app, or at least get a notification that new Events have been added. Currently there is no way of knowing an Event has been added without logging into the website version.
Also, when I check my child’s Dashboard, the date option doesn’t appear until I have selected an activity and then returned to the dashboard screen. This means on days where she has no activities ie weekends, we’re unable to check what activities are coming up over the next few days.
Otherwise I find it fairly user friendly.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
