Here’s what you need to know about syncing child attendance records from Procare Desktop to KidReports. See also: Turn Off Attendance Sync.

How are Children Checked In/Out?

Children must be checked in and out through Procare Desktop in one of the following ways:

    1. Through the Procare Check-In screen (by the parent or authorized pickup
      person). Hint: Use a pencil eraser or stylus for touchless check-in.

    2. OR using the Receptionist feature in Procare (by a staff person on behalf of parent
      or pickup person).

    3. OR using the Mobile Web Apps for curbside check-In (by a staff person on behalf of parent
      or pickup person – image below).
    4. OR using the Batch Check-In feature in Procare (by a staff person – image below), which includes batch check in, out, and transfer from one classroom to another.

Are manual time card entries supported?

No. Only the check-in methods mentioned above are supported.

Is employee check-in supported?

No. Only check in and out of children is included.

How and when is child attendance synced?

Syncing is one-way, from Procare Desktop to KidReports. Approximately one minute after a child is checked in/out from Procare Desktop their in/out time and status (checked in or out) will appear in KidReports.

What happens if the sync does not work?

If for some reason Procare Desktop is unable to communicate with KidReports, the sync will fail silently. In other words, there is no message to let you know. You can confirm the sync worked by checking the child’s in/out status in KidReports. It should be the same as shown in Procare Desktop.

Where are check-in/outs shown in Kidreports?

Each child’s check-in time and status appear on the Attendance tab of the KidReports Admin Portal (image below) and when viewing that child in the Teacher App.

What if the child is checked-in/out from KidReports?

If an in/out time is manually entered into KidReports, that information will not be shown in Procare Desktop.
