Using the Parent Sign-in Page
Parent Sign-in page is available only from a web or mobile browser (not in the app). This is to prevent parents from potentially accessing other areas within the app.
You must be logged in to access the Parent Sign-in page. We also recommend making the web browser page full screen, and closing any other website tabs to prevent your parents from clicking into the wrong area.
No Identification Collected - Parents check in / out their children without a prompt for entering any information.
Name/Initials (Typed) - Parents check in / out their children and they're prompted to type their name or initials.
Electronic Signature - Parents check in / out their children and they're prompted to electronically sign their name. We recommend this only if a signature is state/province required.
Configure Your Parent Sign-in Page
1. Update Your Center Settings
Log into HiMama as an administrator. Once logged in, go to "Logins & Configurations" in the menu bar.
In the "Center Settings" section, select the option that best fits your center's requirements. Scroll down and click "Save".
2. Open the Parent Sign-in Page in your Web or Mobile Browser
Once this setting has been configured, navigate to the Parent Sign-in link (available on web or mobile browser only, not in the app) and select the classroom.
This will open up a new tab on your browser where your parents can sign their children in and out. Make sure to close out any other tabs/windows on your device so parents cannot navigate away from this page.
Note: The parent sign in link is available on both the director side and educator side however educators will only be able to access the children in their class while the director can view a list of children in any class.
3. View Signatures - E-signature configuration only (Admins only)
To view the signature for each child as a director, go to the Reports page and "Attendance" under "Weekly Classroom Reports"
Any time stamp with a pencil icon beside it indicates that a signature was provided during pick up and drop off. Click the "View" option to see the entry with its signature.
