We have some exciting announcements, features and improvements to share with our services.

You can add additional subscribers to our emailed release notes here.

App: Mark Absent


We’ve added the ability for educators to mark children absent. When a child is marked absent, a notification is sent to Office and to the parent or guardian via the Home app. This feature is designed to keep everyone informed and saves educators time.

Playground App and Web: Photo Permissions


As you know, Playground offers educators the ability to upload photos and tag children in observations. Playground Web and Playground App now show which children have been opted-out of photos and videos. Additionally, when tagging children in a photo or video observation, educators will now have a choice for how to handle any children that have been opted-out for photos and videos.

We’ve also released a new Office setting in the child profile that allows service admins to update the photo opt-out choice in a child’s profile.
