When you view the existing Permissions on the system they are organised within categories, you can then quickly and easily read each Permission and if required edit the Permission.
For each Permission you can assign it with a review date, the system will then alert you if a Permission is due for review, you can then click to edit the Permission, make any changes if necessary and assign it with a new review date.

Groups are used on the system so that you can assign a group of Permissions to a child or number of children quickly and easily, once the Permissions have been created and placed into categories you can then assign Permissions or categories of Permissions into a group.
By default there are 3 Permission Groups on every Baby's Days system, these are:
After School Permissions
EYFS 0-5 Permissions
Within these groups are all the Permissions that relate to that group of Permissions, so for example within the After School Permission group, are all the Permissions on the system excluding those that have no reference to after school children, ie: Nappy cream and wet wipes Permission.
Assigning the Permissions to the children
Assigning the Permissions on your system is a simple process, if you have created the groups on the system you can simply tick a box alongside the children you want to assign a group of Permissions to, select the Permission group to assign to them and save, all the Permissions within that group will be instantly assigned to those children.
Alternatively, you can assign Permissions on an individual basis to each child on the system.
When viewing the Permissions overview page, the system will show you the number of Permissions assigned to each child, the group assigned to the, a green tick if the parent has signed the Permissions, along with the date they signed and the name they signed with, or a red x if the parents have not yet agreed and signed your Permissions.
Parents must agree and sign your Permissions
Once you have assigned Permissions to the children in your setting, one or two parents can read, agree to and sign their acceptance of them by digitally signing using a mobile phone, tablet device or on a laptop, PC or Mac computer using a Baby's Days digital signature pad.
Once they have read, agreed to and signed your Permissions you will see on your system the parent's signature(s) along with the date and time they signed.
Each printed set of signed Permissions contains a UPR (Unique Permissions Reference) 10 digit number on each page so that there is no confusion as to which signature is for which set of signed Permissions.
