Visibility in Real Time

adminFamily Day Care, News

Visibility Part of what we mean by Family Day Care Coordinated is the visibility FDSee gives you about what is going on in your Service. At a glance you are able to see who is visiting who and when, if the visits are due or overdue (based on each Educator’s individual needs), and if visits have been completed (in real time). FDSee has a standard colour code throughout; red meaning overdue, blue meaning due within 7 days and green meaning due in more than 7 days time. In the calendar, grey means the visit has been completed and a report finalised.

Mapping Educators

adminFamily Day Care

With FDSee visit planning and placements are easy with a full map showing all your active Educators. You can even go down to street view if you haven’t visited before. (Note: Information in images is for demonstration only and not real educator, address or contact details)
