I really wish I could enable notifications for everything that goes on with my child during the day. I like knowing when she's eaten or napped, but I don't get to see that until I check the app myself. The ability to set up notifications like this would be awesome!
Tjat app is a lawsuit waiting to happpen! it tells you your child is CHecked OUT, and every parent freaks out, thinking Kidnapped!
This app is very helpful when it comes to tracking my daughters activity throughout the day. I enjoy the pictures and also known what my daughter is up too. The reason I give it a 3 is because there is no way for me to provide feedback when the babysitter posts pictures and info in BrightWheel. This should be an essential piece for the app. Not sure why its not included.
I love this app and use it daily for my kids.. My daycare parents also love it!! Every update makes it easier for me each day!
Our daycare just switched from precioustatus to brightwheel and I'm unimpressed. The app only lets you get push notifications for check-in/out, photos/videos, notes, messages, and incidents. You won't get notifications for food, bathroom, naps, or activities (the things you want to see!). The app doesn't auto update, you have to refresh manually. You also can't get a daily email summary. There are obviously plenty of reviews here from people who want those things, but it's not available. Brightwheel is not listening to their end users.
It's a clean design and easy to use, however there is some serious issues with the notifications. School just switched to brightwheel from precioustatus. The notifications don't seem to work 95% of the time, occasional ones come thru but that's it. Tried on different devices and diff Android versions, no avail. With previous app the school used, I got app and email notifications. Please correct this issue.
