Tags can be an extremely useful tool when filtering for a particular group of students. This works especially well if your school has a larger number of students, or students with specific needs or schedules in the system.

For example, many preschools and daycares use tags to filter by:

  • Attendance for full day vs half day

  • Staggered dismissal times

  • Different age groups (infants, toddlers, pre-K, etc.)

  • Grade levels

  •  Allergies

  • Groups within each classroom

After care programs and camps might use tags to filter by:

  • Attendance in various extracurricular activities (dancing, art, sports, etc) or clubs 

  • Attendance for a single week of camp (week 1, week 2, week 3, etc.)

  • Early Release

  • Staggered dismissal times

  • Prepaid families

  • Drop-In students

View the following steps to learn how to create, assign, filter by, remove / edit, or untag children.

  • In the app: Click on the Room at the top of the Home Screen and in the Tags section choose "Manage Tags" and use the "+" to create a new Tag.

Step 2: Assigning Tags
