Parent Booker launches new Shield the Vulnerable functionality.

Now schools can set up opportunities so that only parents who have a Shield the Vulnerable certificate can sign up.

Parent Booker already offers the ability to optionally restrict sign up access based on:

  • background checks
  • tuberculosis tests

This now adds to the security checks that Parent Booker can implement for schools.
Your school can try out Parent Booker for free for an entire quarter. After that it’s just $59.95/month for the entire school.

Sign up for a free, no commitment trial.

Targeting Volunteer Events at Specific Parents

The create event screen lets you target events at specific families

One of Parent Booker’s most significant features isthat it allows events to be set up so that they are only presented to parents with children in specific classes. This feature can also let you set up groups – e.g. PTA members, altar servers… and selectively target events at members in those groups.

Parents can join these groups either when they register (they are shown as textboxes on the sign up page) or afterwards by going to My Account.

Admins can also go to the Admin / Manage Users page and add families manually to these groups.

Targeting Events at Specific Parents

When you create an event the very first page shows you checkboxes for every class and every group. Simply check the boxes for the parents that you want to target, or if you want every parent to see the event click select all so that every box is checked.

Your event will now only be displayed on the website, or in the app, to parents with children in the classes and groups that you designated.

This feature means that parents don’t have to waste time scanning through long lists of events that aren’t relevant to them – the app and site cut to the chase.
