February 2022 Monthly Wrap Up

Welcome to the February 2022 edition of our Monthly Wrap Up. Our Monthly Wrap Up Webinar was held on Thursday 3rd March at 11am AEDT, going through these new updates.

We have included a recording of this demonstration down below if you were unable to attend in person or if you would like to see Discounts in action again.

Office

Discounts

We introduced a new discounts feature that will calculate the discounted percentage (%) or dollar ($) amount on a full fee or a gap fee. These discounts are applied on a child level.

Please note: Discounts can only be applied to a gap fee if the account holder is also an employee at your service.

The new discounts feature includes the ability to:

  • Create discounts for multiple services at a time

  • Assign a category to a discount (e.g. Staff, Sibling)

  • Choose a dollar ($) or percentage (%) value to discount

  • Apply these discounts to a child’s profile over any period of time.

You can find more information about DESE's recent announcement here. It covers the ability for child care providers to offer discounts on the gap fee for employees.
