Ratings and Reviews
Firstly why is this app tracking my children's region and ethnicity and where is this data stored? What has it got to do with Arbor or their education? Are the school going to work harder teaching some races than others? I certainly hope not and if so why is this any more relevant than their eye or hair colour? At least their height and weight could be a sign of health. Aside from breaching data protection collecting irrelevant data, the app itself is totally unusable. I’ve got one child in the infant school and one in the juniors. So I need to have two accounts, and switch between one and the other. The majority of parents are refusing to use this and I will be joining them. There must be a system the school can use that is actually fit for purpose.
I’ve also just read the app does not save card details for payments due to their “strict security protocols” when every other app or establishment has figured out a way to securely save card details.
Lazy development. Clearly do not care in the slightest about ease of use for parents.
Refuse to use this app and make the school find something better.
Parent pay wasn’t great but you could see both children with one login, it saved card details and didn’t collect deeply personal yet entirely irrelevant information.
Convoluted payment method
This isn’t a bad app for information, although I miss the graphs from go 4 schools. However the real pain in using this app is payments. If the developer is reading, please can you change it to either retain my card details or allow bacs payments. It also only allows for one item in the basket. For me, I have two children at different schools both using Arbor. I sign in to my sons school, select school dinner payment, type in my card details and pay, then select a club, type in my card details again and pay, then sign out, select my daughters school with a different password, select school dinners, type in my card details and pay, then select her school trip, type in my card details and pay. In total I’ve signed in twice with two different passwords and typed my card details in 4 times. At least could we use fingerprints and Apple Pay? Thanks for listening.
New app for school AWFUL
Awful app, students can’t have a app just parents, so kids have to log on through desktop version. Not helpful when they need to quickly check their timetable in the mornings.
If something has been done on assignments unless it is submitted through the app there is no way to check off it has been done, we have to wait for the teacher to do it, so it sits in either overdue or in assignments to do even if we have done them. So it gets very confusing seeing what has been done and what new has been set. There are better apps out there for schools, show my homework, edulink. This is all just to busy with complications it doesn’t need to have and the simplest of things aren’t there,
God help any parents that have had their school change to this app 🤦🏻♀️ and if you are a school reading this please re consider.
