Please Note: The following items may not be available in the app store for up to 72 hours following the release. To receive the latest features and enhancements, your mobile app must be updated to the latest version.

New Features and Enhancements

  • Room Transfer Enhancements

    • When the Room Transfers setting is enabled, parents will receive a single notification when their child is transferred. Previously, parents would receive two notifications: when the child was signed in, and then another when signed out.

    • If enabled by the center, parents have the ability to enable or disable push notifications for room transfer events.

    • If room transfer notifications to parents are disabled by the center, room transfer activities are hidden from parents.

  • iOS and Android users are now able to use their default password manager to log in to the mobile app.

  • Enhanced the Sign-In/Out screen for parents to only display options enabled by the school (i.e., if location-based sign-in/out is disabled, the option will be removed).

iOS Enhancements & Bug Fixes

  • Updated the mobile app to iOS version 12, this allows Procare to improve performance, security, and future development. Any users with iOS 11 and below must update their iOS to continue receiving the latest Procare app updates. If users are unable to update their iOS version to 12 or higher, they can continue using the Procare app, but will not receive the newest updates.

  • Fixed an issue where the camera on the mobile device was crashing for some users.

Android Enhancements & Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue on Fire tablets where the app was navigating back to the landing page after a staff member or parent completed the sign-in/out flow from the parent kiosk.

  • Resolved an issue where parents with V8 Android devices were unable to complete the sign-in/out flow.

  • Fixed a photo caption issue when uploading new photo activity. Previously, if no caption was entered, the photo would display with the caption used for the previously added photo.
