Recommended Posts

This tutorial will take you through how to effectively use the Care Diary feature on Tapestry. Please note that the Care Diary is currently only available on the browser version of Tapestry and not the app. We do have plans to add the Care Diary to the app, but in the mean time if you want to use the Care Diary on a tablet/phone device, you'll need to do this through a browser on there. 

After 'Setting up Care Diary' from your Control Panel you can proceed with adding entries. 

To skip to a specific part of this tutorial, please use the links below.

The Care Diary Features

If you select 'all' you will be able to add multiple entries using the larger icons from the toolbar in the image below. You can also select 'some' by ticking the grey box beneath a child's name and then selecting the other children you wish to add an entry for.

(4) There is also have an easy toggle in/out of bed to quickly add sleep entries for children. 

(5) You can add drinks that are available throughout the day here and Save. This/these will then appear in the care diary entry for every child for that day.
