Horrible waste of time to set up 2 children
Set up first child fine just a little confusing adding credit card. Could not add a second child through app. Drop down boxes didn’t work. Kids go to same school so that was not the problem. Finally i gave up and used a PC. It asked me 3 different security questions then the ones I set up. Thankfully it let me skip that part. Set up on auto pay so I don’t have to deal with this app or website. Hopefully my credit card info is safe. Who set this up? It’s just terrible and so childish.
Please bring back the old
Please bring back the old app. I miss how I could check all my kids accounts, activity and add funds all on the same screen. This new app takes so much more time because I have to check accounts individually then add funds individually, then go to the shopping cart to check out. So many more steps and so much more clicking around. There's nowhere to check payment history. Even the look of the old app was cleaner and easier on the eyes. Not impressed.
So far, no good.
My child’s school just signed on with this ap. I completed all info and payments and submitted to the “check out” and got an error message, and that the system failure was logged. Already?! So I repeated all of the steps once more, and received the same error message. I sincerely hope my account was not double charged...
This ap has a lot of issues to work out before the beginning of a very busy school year, if not, be prepared to deal with many frustrated parents.
