The CareConnect Mobile app has the capability to capture any and all attendance records without the need of being connected to the internet. This is particularly useful if you need to utilize a device to have parents sign in or out while outside the range of Wi-Fi.
Step 1: Ensure Offline mode is ON
To make sure your device is configured to use Offline mode, please navigate to your Home → Side Menu → Offline → and check the Offline to ON.
While the setting is on, if your device is no longer connected to the internet you'll see a red bar at the top of your screen to notify you that CareConnect is in Offline Mode.
Step 2: Cache your existing data on your device
CareConnect automatically stores your existing data while online every 4 hours.
It is recommended that if you will be expecting your device to go offline, please make sure to Cache Data by tapping on the refresh icon .
This way when the device is offline, CareConnect can display the most recent information, such as PINs, absences, and sign-ins, and outs.
Step 3: Capture Attendance
Continue to capture attendance as you normally would through the Sign In options. While offline you will still have the ability to fully utilize the:
