This has been turned on by default for all centres from 5th April 2020.
To reduce the number of touches at sign in / out SmartCentral has introduced contactless sign in.
This will allow parents to log in/out, via their own phone, but with added security to ensure it is done in centre. (ie. it won’t work if you are in your car, in the carpark.)
If your centre has this function turned on the process is very simple :
The digital sign in screen displays a unique sign in code that changes daily.
Parent logs into SmartCentral through their parent portal account on their phone:
Signing out follows the same process.
Parents can sign in/out from their phones, at the same time as other parents or staff.
Go to account -> Setup Org -> Scroll down to the Digital Attendance section. Tick the box to disable the function.
We normally DON’T recomend sharing logins but these are exceptional times.
If you are another /parent carer:
