PT3 – COVID-19 collecting names

Sep 10, 2020

When your COVID-19 management plans require you to maintain a list of people who attend an event, now you can. Previously we had options for just allocating a single seat, or allowing the parent to specify the number of seats they wanted to book. We now have a new option allowing SOBS to collect a […]

PT3: More support for COVID-19 interviews

Aug 20, 2020

We have fielded calls from many schools wanting to support face-to-face interviews as well as interviews via phone or online meetings. Generally we have been managing these by duplicating the round and giving them appropriate descriptions. We are aware that the COVID-19 situation may be with us for another 12 months, so we have decided […]

Enrolment interviews

Sep 5, 2019

This has been a developing story for some time. It started when we first implemented an option for enrolment interviews, and suddenly we had the problem of which year level the parent should select for their student – is it their current year level or the year level they will be enrolling for. If the […]

PT3: Close for booking

Feb 23, 2019

With version 3 we have changed the way we close a booking round. In the previous version you would specify a specific date/time that parents would be unable to make any further bookings or changes. With version 3 we are now specifying a lead-time for each time slot – the number of hours prior to […]

PT3: Push Requests

What is a Push Request? As the name suggests, we are PUSHing out a REQUEST – and the request is for a parent to come for an interview. Is this new? Yes and no. We did have push requests in the previous version, however it was limited to manual entry of the request data. With […]

It adopts our new style so the look has been completely transformed, however inside there are many more new features to be found! How to upgrade? Click on the “Add new round of interviews” button. If you have no other active interview rounds […]

PT – maintenance

Feb 20, 2018

We noticed an error in the server logs when parents were attempting to make or view their parent/teacher interview bookings. This appeared to impact only a few schools for a brief time on Tuesday morning (before 7:20am).  While checking the staff availability for these time slots the application (or perhaps the programmer) became confused whether […]

PT: Duplicating Interview Rounds

Oct 25, 2017

Can you spot a child struggling to swim? An EQ primary school is organising swimming lessons for term 4, and as a precaution the school is asking parents to volunteer as spotters – to spot the kids that are struggling and perhaps sinking while the swim teacher is distracted. It’s an important role. The process […]
