The new Parent Booker app for iPhones and iPads is launched and available for free to parents with children at schools using the service.
Using the app, parents can:
- view a filtered list of volunteer opportunities tailored based on your children’s classes
- view a calendar showing school holidays and dates then they’ve signed up to volunteer
- receive push notifications whenever the school posts a new volunteer opportunity that’s targeted to parents based on their children’s classes or group memberships (e.g. PTA, clubs, altar servers…)
- enter service hours
- view your progress towards service hour targets via a progress bar
Parent Booker has been working on an all new iPhone app that’s set to make parent volunteering even easier. Crafted by an expert UI / UX designer it makes school volunteering even easier than before…

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.

Many schools offer parents a school fee discount if they complete a set number of service hours before the end of each school year. Parent Booker makes recording and tracking hours simple for parents and schools. Schools can configure programs so that:
- parents can opt out of performing service hours and don’t appear in reports tracking hours
- single parents can be set a lower service limit
- schools can selectively approve hours
Parents simply enter their hours and the duties they performed and Parent Booker takes care of the rest.
At the end of the year schools can run a report to see how many hours each family has served making it easy and fair to account for any fee discount.
