Confusing app

My children's school decided to change the app this year. In my opinion definitely is a bad decision as you have to switch the child name to see them records, also very confusing is to see on the top of the page a name of a child but down on the same page is the information about different child.
Also I should make the meal payments separate for all my children as is not an “add basket” button.
I didn’t find anywhere or how to save the card details. Spent more time to add card details for all payments. Very frustrating and confusing.
Yes, also always you have to introduce log in details, but I think this is from security reason.

Hi, thanks for your review! You're right that you can't save payment details right now - but we have introduced a basket functionality now so that should help you make payments for multiple students easily!

Useful app and helpful support

I installed this app to check the progress of my kids at the school. The app gives an up to date info about where are my kids now, their behaviour etc. I can also see messages from the school which is mega useful, the app also pings me when a new message is there - so I don’t miss them. I know that I can pay for meals from the app, but I haven’t tried it yet.

There were some issues when I was logging in for the first time. So I contacted my school and they sorted everything four with the app support. It was so quickly.

I like the fact that I have about my kinds in my phone, it makes me closer to them when they are at school.

Not showing balance or past bookings

The app is missing the ability to see the balance of my account. If my account is loaded with some money it would be essential to see how much of that money I have left so I know when to top up.
I would also like to see my past bookings and be able to receive booking confirmation. I have on a couple of occasions was checking out clubs to book, and even though I have not completed the booking it went through to my school as a booking and I was charged for it. Not sure how this is possible. I wasn’t even aware that I’ve booked as I have received no confirmation. If I had received confirmation, I would have been able to cancel.
I find this system very difficult to manage and it’s not transparent. There is far too much information on it.
Impossible to use especially with more than one children.
Im glad I didn’t have to use it due to COVID situation.
Only give one star as there is no zero option.
