We’re excited to introduce iCare Ding, a daycare parent communication app. The app sends push notifications to parents’ phones. This occurs when a teacher tags that parent’s child on a journal entry or photo.
You select when parents get a notification about their child’s activities throughout the day. Send a variety of notification types via a text message that includes a link to the activity in iCare Software’s web-based platform. That way, parents can click the link and view more information about the notification, including photos and journal entries.
The first time that parents use the text notification feature, the childcare software will prompt them to sign into iCare with their login credentials. Subsequent notification links will send parents directly to the new photo or journal entry within iCare since they have already logged in.
When a teacher makes a journal entry or tags a child in a picture, parents receive an instant text notification on their registered mobile numbers with a link to the notified journal/photo entry on the iCare website.
