SmartCentral provides two simple ways for you to quickly invite a parent to register, or update their details online, by creating a user account. The best method to use will depend on whether any of the parent’s details are already stored in SmartCentral.
If the parent’s details are already recorded in SmartCentral (as a minimum First Name , Last Name , email address and mobile phone number) you can use the Create User Account feature from the Parent Screen or in bulk from the Parent List. The process is started when the staff member clicks the Create User Account button and goes like this:
Note: SmartCentral only needs a very minimum of information to start the process. It is often easiest to create a basic parent record (min First Name , Last Name , DOB, email address and mobile phone number), then use the Create User Account feature, rather than use the second method.
Use your normal email client to email the profile link to apply online to your service. If you have your own website you can also place this link there with a message like Click here to apply online. (The link can be found Accounts -> Setup Org -> Profiles. Check with support which profile link to use, if there is more than one.) * *
