Spread the love

This software is used for building, managing, and publishing an online school directory. It has pre-built templates that can be used to update the school directory, and it supports the printing of individual classroom pages.


What Users Love About the App

“Simplicity of use. Saves paperwork. Can be used to create reports. Easily see everyone who is still in the building (children and staff members). Records many different types of information (attendance, immunizations, medicals, state required paperwork, Food Program info for the USDA CACFP, tuition fees, and other misc. info.).”

“It is good for tracking when a something is coming due or is past due. It offers good reports. Like that everything is in one app. You also use the Kid Reports app for and I love that all of the data is transferred automatically.”

“This has a great foundation of ideas. Student check in/out, Employee check in/out, billings, time tracking, payroll, general ledger. Truly an all in one for a small preschool. Too good to be true for sure.”

“It’s easy to use and navigate. The updates usually add another useful part to the program. I love the layout and the easy on the eye’s colors. Just about everything can be customized or added to fit our needs. The reports section has just about everything I need to run.”

“The cloud keeps everything updated on all our seats. That is good to know, when you log in, that the attendance and accounts are up to date. We love having pictures of kids, parents, and people allowed to pick up children, it is a great feature. The modules we have work fantastic.”

What Users Dislike About the App

“Can’t say there are any cons to this product except maybe the price. You do pay a little more for this software compared to others, however, the old saying you get what you pay for rings true with this product! it is top notch!”

“The messaging system is really my biggest complaint. It is not easy to navigate or stay on top of easily. But it’s difficult to answer a lot of parents when you have to leave incoming to check sent for each message, and check dates to make sure you are not seeing an older response.”

“You can’t see at a glance if a staff member replied to a parent’s message and sometimes messages get missed and no one replies thinking someone else did. It makes us look unprofessional when we aren’t sure if a message has been answered.”

“Directory Burst does a lot but some of the features are a bit updated. The texting feature isn’t great. It still uses phone emails to send these and we always have problems with it working correctly. The emails are also not great.”

“So many of our parents and children are English Language Learners, and are new technology users. It would benefit our program greatly if there were more opportunity to directly engage with parents and participants through the app.”
