We are very pleased with the number of updates Compass is introducing over the coming weeks, in a bid to make the online portal and the Compass App more user friendly, intuitive and functional. The introduction of these updates will allow parents/guardians to fulfill a range of tasks in the App; streamlining events and excursions processes, and further ensuring student safety.
You may notice the following updates online and in your App over the coming weeks:
- Provide consent for events/excursions from their phone, including multiple events/excursions at once
- Process payments from the mobile app, including the new option to save credit card details
- Set up a Payment Plan to pay for approved events or excursions over a series of instalments
- Confirm Medical Action Plans are up-to-date in case of an emergency during an event or excursion.
