New Custom Field Types, Classroom Foreacasting, & Greatly Improved Multi-Site Support

New Custom Field Types, Classroom Foreacasting, & Greatly Improved Multi-Site Support

Multi-site child care paperwork management software

This week we spent a lot of time working through enterprise support for our child care businesses that run multiple locations while still focusing on many improvements and fixes that have been requested by our customers.

We added the ability to manage several different aspects of Playground at the enterprise level including billing items, custom posts, post visibility, and most excitingly, paperwork. This should make it a breeze to manage paperwork across all of the different programs you are operating, each with their own specific needs. In the next few weeks, there will be a bunch of other improvements across Playground to better support our multi-site operators.

We've also released a few other helpful tools to help manage your programs. We added new custom field types in order to help with data validation and for better reporting. This should also help during enrollment, where you want families filling out data in a proper format. We also added a classroom forecasting tab to our scheduling — right now it is a view only screen where you can see students who are aging in and out of programs, track your utilization rates, and more. But we are going to be adding a bunch more functionality here to help you make better decisions about placing students into proper classrooms.

  • Enrollment applications now show the most recent information, not the data when it was first submitted

  • Able to change the student's schedule at time of enrollment acceptance, rather than only allowing for the default one required by the plan

  • Improved email communication when ACH payment fails to include more information if available

  • Better error messaging when creating a staff member fails

  • New setting to optionally hide staff last names from parents

  • Fixed custom reports incorrectly downloading data with new line characters

  • Fixed visual issue on the payouts screen where refunds to deleted students were not showing
