Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Online permission forms are often posted by our school requiring student/parent details to be entered and submitted. It would be helpful if FlexiBuzz could mark these submissions as complete, so as a parent I know I’ve submitted the required info.
I’ve also been a parent volunteer working on the back-end. In other words, I receive all the online submissions and the number of parents who submit 2-3 copies of the same permission form is ridiculous. They can’t remember if they’ve submitted anything so they do it again and again. Whilst the app can be set up so Google Forms sends a copy of the submission most seem to ignore it or it goes to their Junk Mail folder never to be seen again. We submit a FlexiBuzz form and get a reply from someone else (Google Forms).... it confuses people.
Ok but needs to pick up pace of improvement
This app has great potential, but needs to pick up the pace of development and delivery of practical features.
My main gripe is to do with my experience as a parent with recording Absence. I need to have at least some of the field’s content persist between sessions (Name and Class) and the start and end dates should default to day.
My second gripe is that the service should be smart enough to automatically reformat the school’s A4 PDF into a smartphone friendly format.
The move from TiqBiz to FlexiBizz has shown no progress on these two fronts so far, and it has been at least six months so far.
Could be great
Since the change, I cannot get notifications/alerts for this app to work- even uninstalling and reinstalling, altering settings etc multiple times has not worked. I assume this is a common problem as our school has since reverted to sending home all important correspondence in paper format- which this app is designed to avoid?????
On the other hand- it constantly displays 1 new notification, which upon going into the feed and completely though it, there is no new post and this notification simply cannot be removed from the app button/widget.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
