We’re excited to announce that the mobile apps for PTO have now been released and are available for both Apple and Android. Parents can now choose to make bookings in PTO using their phone or tablet device or with their browser as usual.
Information about the apps is displayed prominently on the login screen for PTO so schools don’t need to do anything to enable bookings via the mobile apps.
The app …
- is self-explanatory with on-screen help, but there’s also a user guide here.
- Allows bookings to be viewed even if the mobile device is offline.
- is only for parents to make, change and view bookings. There are no teacher or administrator functions – these are only available in the browser version of PTO.
- is only for premium PTO (the one that most schools use). It cannot be used for PTO Lite or Pick-A-Time fete bookings.
Just one week after the app’s release there’s been a strong response from parents with hundreds of downloads and more than one thousand bookings made.
