If you have a prompt for parents that needs to be answered every day during Sign-In OR Sign-Out, the Kiosk Form is a great tool.
For example, some schools need to keep track of how many students have a packed lunch. Using the Kiosk Form, the school could prompt "Did you bring lunch for your child today?" during Sign-In. Possible answers could include:
- Plan to bring tomorrow
As another example, some schools need to know why a child was picked up before a certain time. In this case, the school would create a prompt during Sign-Out that asks "What is the reason for your child's early release?" Possible answers could include:
- Doctor's Appointment
- Family Emergency
- School-Related Activity
- Student Health (occurred while at school)
If you have a prompt that needs to be answered DAILY by the parents during Sign-In OR Sign-Out, review the steps below.
Step 1: Enable the Kiosk Form
Go to School Settings > Settings and click on the "Enable Form" button to begin setting up your Kiosk Form.
Step 2: Create Your Form
You'll see a pop-up with fields for entering your prompt, possible answer choices for the parents, and the time frame for when the prompt should appear. You will be able to add up to 8 answer choices, and you can allow parents to select multiple answers or only one.
NOTE: At this time, you can only create one question total. However, by going back to the Settings page and clicking on the "Enabled" button, you are able to edit the question if necessary.
Step 3: How it Works
Parents will follow the usual steps on the Parent Kiosk. However, after pressing the button for "Sign In" (or "Sign Out"), the Kiosk Form will appear. They will then be able to select their answer(s) and add an additional note if necessary.
After submitting the form, the parents will then record their signature (if parent signatures are enabled) and the screen will return to the Parent Kiosk for the next parent.
Step 4: Reviewing the Answers
After all of the parents have answered your Kiosk Form, you will be able to view the answers in two areas on the website:
Option 1 - Sign In-Out page
Go to Sign In-Out > Student Attendance. As you look at the table with students' in/out times, you'll see a little note icon toward the righthand side. If you hover over the icon, you'll see how the parent answered your kiosk question.
Option 2 - Reports
Go to Reports and generate a Daily Attendance report. You'll be able to view the Kiosk Form answers on both the .xls and .pdf versions of the report.
