Example:

If prior to viewing any child, you’ve sorted the children list by reference, the dropdown list will show children sorted by reference. After switching to a different child, you will stay in the same tab and do not have to navigate again. For example, if you are viewing the timetables of Leander Smith, when you switch to Kim McNally, the program will show timetables of Kim McNally immediately.

 

Child Selection, Child Update, Immunisation

An age validation function has been implemented so that the 48 month Immunisation panel only displays if the child is 15 months or older.

When a child’s WINZ information changes e.g., change in hours, amount etc., you can choose to create a new WINZ record instead of overwriting the existing one. Infocare now keeps all historical WINZ records and uses the correct one based on effective date when you create a WINZ receipt. We recommend that you add a new timetable to coincide with this change so that the correct fees display on the timetable 

N.B. a confirmation of enrolment is not required unless you change the child’s actual enrolment as well.
