What's a tag?

A 'Tag' in Famly is a way to group children (or staff) together in your setting. 'Tags' can contain children and staff across the different rooms of your setting, to get an overview. For example, you could use tags:

  • To group children with a specific dietary requirement, such as vegan

  • To group who attends a specific session, such as a breakfast club

  • To group staff by a specific skill, such as those who are first aid qualified

Of course you can use 'Tags' however is most useful for your setting

How to use 'Tags' in your setting

There are several ways to utilise 'Tags'. You can

  • Send posts on your News feed to only the children or staff with a certain 'Tag', by entering the name of the 'Tag' in the recipient field, when writing a new post.

  • Visit the 'Tags' section of a child or staff member's profile, to find further information about the child. Parents cannot see 'Tags'

  • Create 'Lists' based on 'Tags', so you have an overview of all the children or staff who share a certain 'Tag'
