Parents are anxious and frustrated coordinating their families

Currently, parents have to manually add entries into their calendar after reading emails, browsing portals and searching websites – mistakes happen, and information is missed

Verbatim from parents on how long it takes and how frustrating it is

“I would add it to my phone diary as often as this stuff is done on the run. At home I would file the email under the subject matter but that got more and more frustrating over the years... Different school departments choose different ways.”

Pam McPherson
Parent of 2

“I would put emails in folders and add red flag. But you could easily spend an hour a week doing that, if not more. I had 3 diff schools it was a shit show”

Katrina Cowan
Parent of 3

"I had a whiteboard at home so the kids and other carers have visibility and use phone calendar this was good but it was hard to maintain and keep"
