Really like the app however....
The app is great! I have three complaints that if fixed would make it a 5/5 easily.
1. For such a great app it needs better verbiage. I would gladly volunteer to help. The fields and settings can be renamed and categorized differently to create a MUCH more user friendly experience. So set up can be faster and easier to change.
2. WHERE IS THE TEXTING service to parents it’s 2019 parents don’t check email and not all parents have computers. We need a feature for this and that will archive communication as well as allow for mass messages to all parents in multiple classes, one class or just a single parent.
3. Finally, for something so powerful you could add a gradebook to this.
I have had this app for years but it really needs the rest ting feature to be effective. And as a Music teacher it needs simple ways to add and remove students when schedules are changed.
Really like but...
I really like this! It will be much easier for my to track participation and behavior. I just started getting it set up this weekend and haven’t started using it yet. The one thing I noticed right off the bat was it takes too many clicks to record information. I will have to take my eye off the students for too long. Especially, if I have to record for several students.
Developer Response ,
If you are entering the same info, try using the “default action values” in the app settings. This allows you to enter new actions without having to retype the same info. If you have any other suggestions to improve the app, please let me know (email@example.com).
Great for Youth Ministry
I rarely do reviews, and when I do they are critical...however this is a good app! I've been thru a dozen "attendance" apps and this one is the most stable. I'd love to offer it up to other youth pastors I know...however I'd like to point out a couple of potential upgrade ideas. 1. The entire opening screen seems to be wasted space. If you were able to display a break down of stats on attendance, or notification of consecutive absences on that screen...wow that would be awesome. 2. When I click "Students" and then a students name...I get nothing. I'd have to click again to see phone, email, etc. It would be more user friendly to click a name and see all info for that student. Just saying. 3. Finally, a field to paste a live URL that can be clicked. This could allow a teacher to go straight to the students Facebook for contact? Maybe that's being picky. But the first two suggestions are legit. Especially that opening screen. Gotta change that up. Gives an ugly, dull feel to the app. Otherwise....GREAT job so far. I hope to see updates, and more feedback. If that home screen was a dashboard of stats, I'd pay $9.99 for this app EASILY!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
