What's a 'Status' in Famly?
You can assign a 'Status' to children, to record (and share with the child's parents) what they're doing. The 'Statuses' assigned to children appear around their photo in the Room Overview, and also appear in their Activity feed. Parents can choose to receive a notification when their child's 'Status' changes.
In the picture below, we can see that all the children have eaten today as they have the cutlery icon around their photo indicating the 'Meal' Status. We can also see that Gary is outside, as his Status shows a leaf icon over his photo, indicating the 'outdoor' status, and Eli and Finn are asleep currently, as the moon icon shows their Status is 'Asleep'
How can I create Statuses in Famly?
To add a custom Status for your setting:
Log in to Famly and open the 'Settings' menu
Select 'Rooms' then 'Custom Statuses' from the drop-down menu
A new screen will open where you can see all of your current custom Statuses. Here you have the option to chose an icon to represent your new custom Status (and the colour) and give it a name.
Choose whether you want your Status to appear in the Activity feed
Click 'Save new status'
How do I change the Status of a child?
From the room overview, click on the child's profile picture and a black box will appear on the right with a number of icons. Click the Status icon, and you can now register the child as any of the Statuses you have chosen for your setting.
Statuses in the Activity feed
The Activity tab on a child's profile will show their Statuses (in the order in which they were applied), along with a timestamp. You can also update a child's Status from here, by clicking 'Add' then choosing a Status from the drop-down.
