The separate Sign-in Screen:

Besides signing children in and out via their room in the Famly app, Famly also offers a separate sign-in screen to allow parents, carers, staff to sign themselves (and their children) in and out. Every sign in and out is saved in the Famly app, providing you with an overview of when the children arrive and when they leave. You can find these details under ‘Attendance Report’.

You can use an iPad or an Android tablet for your sign-in/out screen. Alternatively, you can use a web browser. It will appear as below:
