The new app provides great new features:
- view a single calendar that combines school holidays with the days you’re signed up to volunteer
- for recurring events sign up using a calendar view
- add and view your service hours right from your mobile
- track your service hours on a progress meter

The app is nearing completion and will still need to be approved by the iTunes store. It should be released in May.

Parent Teacher Meeting Sign Ups – Done The Easy Way

Parent Booker makes the challenge of signing up parents for parent teacher meetings a breeze. Teachers can create a schedule of slots that can be at any interval they choose, spanning the evenings they need.

Parents with children in the relevant grade are then notified via email, the website or mobile app using an iPhone or iPad. As soon as they login they can see a link to the Parent Teacher evening event where they can see all the open slots.

Parents sign up on the web or mobile app with just a single click. Their slot is reserved and teachers can even receive email notifications whenever a parent signs up.

Parents can also easily re-arrange – withdrawing from a slot if they have a commitment and viewing and signing up for other available spots that are available.

Drop School Commitments into Your Calendar

Tracking all your commitments can be hard – so Parent Booker has added a new feature that lets parents drop the school calendar, along with all the volunteer events they’ve signed up for, right into their calendar. So far we have everything working for Apple iCal, but we’re planning to add support soon for Google Calendar and Outlook. HX4VKPF26B9B

When you login into Parent Booker there’s a link right on your homepage that when clicked on will drop the school calendar and your personal commitments (based on Parent Booker sign ups) right into your calendar.

This also means that if your smart phone is connected to your calendar all your events will appear there too.
