Although brightwheel will be adding a full powerful portal that families can use to apply and conduct visits, the brightwheel platform as it is today can still be used as a great tool for admissions.

The key to remember is that in order for parents to create an account, you have to invite a parent with an email address or phone number. But once you do that, the parent can run with it.

Suggested steps:

  1. Add Student: Can include just his/her name.
  2. Set Status: You can set the student status to Applied, Lead, Toured, or Waitlist to track and filter your potential students across platforms
  3. Add Parent: Can include just name and email address.
  4. Send Invoice (optional). Once you've added a parent, you can send an invoice for application fees, tuition, etc.

That's it. From there, parents can:

  • Create an account
  • Add their own personal information
  • Add their child's full information - including profile photo, contact info, emergency contacts, allergies, etc.
  • Invite other parents/guardians
  • Add a payment method and pay invoices
