Minor bug fix
Ratings and Reviews
Not user friendly and freezes frequently
As a preschool teacher, using this application is very frustrating. We have small amounts of time during the day to input all the information for each child and this app does not make it easy. Buttons are too close together (ie. when trying to add a child to an event you accidentally exit the screen altogether.) The app freezes often and there seems to be no way to edit all events at the same time, so if I make a typo I have to edit each child individually, even if it was added as a mass event. Also haven’t found a way to delete an event that was added to the day by accident. We used to use Brightwheel and I wish we still did! We switched because it became too expensive and Kid Reports works with ProCare. I guess you get what you pay for though because by saving money you end up spending more time trying to use a clunky app. Developers, please make this app more smooth and add better features to make it user friendly before I go crazy!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you are encountering problems with the app. We noted your suggestion to add the ability to do a bulk update on mass events and are adding it to our roadmap. The ability to delete events is also a feature that can be turned on or off. We can easily help get this feature turned back on for you.
Please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help with the other issues you described. These often times may be related to some simple tablet maintenance that our team can help with.

I hate it
The app seems good on paper, but it just isn’t. I spend more time looking at a tablet troubleshooting app problems than actually paying attention to my kids or the activities I’m supposed to be putting into place. The app is very glitchy, bounces kids from one room to another, doesn’t refresh when internet is lost, the portfolio is so difficult to work with because you can’t upload things for kids who are not signed in which means if I don’t get something put in immediately it probably won’t get entered at all. The name to face thing is really not helpful if you are unable to sign a child in for whatever glitchy reason so I think it only makes sense to have it if it shows you’re whole class roster at once and you only mark who’s there. I don’t know.... I think there are some okay things about the app, but using it day in and day out for every activity of the day.... it’s too complicated to use. Should be more simplified

Hello! The app does allow information to be recorded for children who are not signed in. The attendance screen may just need to be synced prior to completing the attendance as well. Please either call our support line using 866-233-3936 (menu option 2) or email us at email@example.com and we'd be more than happy to assist with your concerns. Thanks, The KidReports Team
Disappointing functionality and latency
1. KidReports totally misses the mark on the check in feature as there is no notification sent to parents when the child checks in. My partner and I switch off drop off duties and it puts my mind at ease to confirm our child has arrived among news stories of parents who forget to drop off their child resulting in child fatalities in hot cars.
2. Latency. The app takes significantly (on average 5 times) longer to load than our last daycare app. Sometimes I’ll log in mid morning, see some activity then log in that afternoon and the app indicates there has been no activity all day.
3. Features not deployed. I’m told there are features for parents to submit status’ before their child’s arrival. This is not enabled on our deployed version of the app, along with auto notifications with each event. I had to call corporate to have them enable this feature for me vice being able to access this on my own.
4. Look and feel. Overall just poor user experience. Navigating around the app looks like cheap development and is not intuitive. Very rough around the edges in places. Not clear what functionality different toggles of the main menu are trying (and failing) to provide the end user.

Thanks for the notes. Parent attendance notification is a new opt-in feature we are already looking into adding in a future release. We hope to have this available soon! In regards to activities not displaying, this may just require a quick screen sync in the top-right of your app screen. Regarding the arrival notice, this is an opt-in feature by the school, which just sends a message to the teacher letting them know you are in the way. If the school has not opted into this feature, you do always have the option of sending a quick message through your app.
