Is the care diary available on the app?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

We use the app daily to add observations to Tapestry but the care log does not seem to appear on the app which would be very useful for us, is this something that can be done?

Kind regards

Hi Ami and Jade,

When we add a new feature to Tapestry, it appears on the browser version first and then, if appropriate, on the apps. We will definitely add the care diary to the apps- pretty soon- but I'm not able to give a definite date for this at the moment. :1b

This is great thank you ::1a

Can i also ask is there anyway of adding newsletters to sen out to all parents. We tried to do it by adding a word document to an observation to send out to all parents but it will not allow us to upload word documents just pictures, is there anyway we can overcome this.

thanks

Ami

Good morning,

A newsletter function is also high on our list of things to do. In the meantime there is a 'work around' you can use:

For now, what you can do is set up a fake child and attach all relatives to this child. You could then add your newsletters as observations to this fake child with your content appearing in the notes section or as a picture file. If you have a word file you could either scan it and save it as a picture file e.g. JPEG and then upload it as 'media' or you could 'cut and paste' the newsletter text into the observation text area.When these observations are published, all relatives will then receive a notification about it and will be able to login and see the observation.
There are a few safeguarding issues you need to consider with this:
Relatives are able to see other relatives attached to the same child on the child overview section, so if a relative clicked on the fake child overview, they would be able to see the names of the other attached relatives.
Relatives can see observations made by other relatives for the fake child even if they are not published in the journal. When relatives are adding observations, they will need to be careful to make the observation for their child only, rather than including the fake child in their observation.
You can only disable comments for group observations, not single child observations, so relatives would be able to comment on, and see the comments of other relatives for these newsletter observations. If you have space on your Tapestry account though, you could add a second fake child and not attach any relatives to them but add them to the newsletter observations too. Then, if you set Tapestry to block the ability for relatives to comment on group observations, they will no longer be able comment.
I hope this helps a bit!

A newsletter feature will be great, I currently send to all as an ob, asking them to only add 'read' to comment box but until recently I hadn't realised they get near on 60 email notifications by the time they've all added read ...oops
