Playground 2.7.0

Parent Health Events

For booked-in children, educators will now be able to see health events created by parents, so they can stay up to date on how well the child slept, what meals the child ate before/after care, toileting information, and more.

Editable Health Event Times

When creating toilet/nappy, sleep, sunscreen, and nutrition events, educators can now set a custom time-of-event to assist in recording accurate event times. Both the Display Time and Logged Time will be shown to parents on the new version of Home app.

Service admins can enable or disable this feature via Office, however it is enabled by default. To learn more about the Office setting, the feature itself, and how the events with edited times show to parents, read this new help article

New Sleep & Toileting Events

Resting, Rest Checks, Soiled Clothes, and Toileting Attempted are new health events we've added to Playground App.

"Offered" Nutrition Events

Educators can now mark whether the nutrition items they are offering to children were refused by the children. This new feature applies to the current nutrition events and also the new photo nutrition events (see below).

Photo Upload Nutrition Events

There's a new, faster and simpler way to create nutrition events by snapping a photo! Simply select "Upload Photo" at the top of the list of nutrition items when creating a nutrition event.
