Available on Mobile
Brightwheel is always trying to help you manage your school. Admin Tools is a feature only found in the mobile app where you can access student and staff check-in, your school profile, Room Check, and others! Here are a few commonly asked questions:
What exactly are the features of Admin Tools?
Inside the Admin Tools feature, you will find the following:
- Room Check (premium only)- This is where you can view all rooms and how many students and staff are currently checked in. It also shows your ratio information.
- Student & Staff Check-In: This is where your student/staff check-in settings live. It also includes your check-in kiosk, quick scan for parents (premium only), and tracks attendance.
- Message All Parents (premium only): Looking to message all the parents in a specific room or all rooms? This is how to do just that instead of messaging each child's parent one by one!
- Billing and Reports: Currently, the actual Billing and Reports features lives on the web only. This portion in the app gives an explanation of what the features includes online.
- School Profile: You are able to update your contact information, school address, check-in settings, and enable your learning frameworks from here. Please note, premium users are also able to set their Activities settings to Staff-Only from here. That way, it does not update the parents when an activity is posted.
