Top 10 New Features (December 2019)
New CareMonkey Integrations
1. Wonde integration now available in Australia
Based in Australia and use CareMonkey? We’ve got great news.
Through our strategic partnership with integration experts Wonde, you can now integrate your CareMonkey system with a range of common Student Information Systems (SIS), including TASS, Synergetic, SchoolPro and SchoolEdge.
So, if you’re using spreadsheets to load your students, staff and classes into CareMonkey, you now have the option to use Wonde to automatically keep that data synced with your SIS.
More information is available on the Wonde website or you can contact our support team to request integration between Wonde and CareMonkey.
Wonde provides integration to multiple student administration systems in the UK and Australia. Wonde delivers integrations for the majority of admin systems used in UK schools, including SIMS and ISAMS.
Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication process that allows a user to access multiple applications with one set of login credentials. We’ve updated the way CareMonkey’s SSO authentication process is implemented, allowing for easier set-up, ongoing management and a smoother user experience. For set-up details, go here: Using SSO with CareMonkey (Group Edition).
4. Firefly SSO integration
SSO for Firefly Education is now available in CareMonkey. This will empower CareMonkey and Firefly users throughout your school community to move seamlessly between the two products, using the same login credentials. For set-up and configuration instructions, go here: Configuring CareMonkey Firefly SSO (Group Edition).
5. Linking CareMonkey with your school portal (Group Edition)
We’ve updated the way we enable SSO between CareMonkey and your school portal or website. This change will make it easier for you to manage SSO credentials for staff and student contacts.
To set-up SSO in the past, you imported a csv file containing staff and parent SSO credentials into CareMonkey, linking each person’s school portal and CareMonkey logins. Moving forward, we’ll automatically prompt parents and staff to link their CareMonkey and school portal accounts when they first log-in to CareMonkey.
We’ve introduced a new dashboard feature to the CareMonkey Form Library (Community and Group Editions).
This dashboard displays key information about your CareMonkey eForms at-a-glance.
Coloured panels give you a count of enabled, not enabled and archived forms. Clicking on any of the displayed upcoming events takes you straight to the responses received for that event. And, a list of upcoming due dates for form responses helps you easily keep on top of what matters.
In the past, if you had more than one CareMonkey account, you had to log out of one account before logging into another. We’ve now made it simple and seamless to switch between your CareMonkey accounts on-the-fly: Introducing Linked Accounts.
This new feature can unblock your approval processes and workflows to keep things running smoothly. CareMonkey Administrators can now submit approvals on behalf of staff who might be absent or no longer at the school / organization.
Simply visit the Form Library and highlight the form you want, then select the Approve on their behalf link (under the Status column) to review, approve or reject the submission. For more info, view this post: Approve on behalf of staff member.
Merry Christmas, and happy New Year, from Team CareMonkey!
