Too much waiting?

If you book your parents evenings manually or you use a system where the parents choose the times of their appointments, your parents evenings will have a lot of unnecessary waiting time. Check your existing system; if your parents have to choose their times, you could benefit from ParentEve.

Smoother Parents Evenings

With ParentEve, parents say who they want to see and when they are available, but they don't choose a time. Instead, ParentEve's powerful optimiser searches for the best times, reducing waiting times for both teachers and parents. Parents may arrive halfway through the evening, have all their appoinments within half an hour and then leave.

Fairer Parents Evenings

With traditional systems, the first parents to book will get everything they wanted, but later parents will be forced to find what free times they can, often hours apart. With ParentEve, everyone gets equally fair appointments, which means there's no need for parents to rush to book. They can consider their options at leisure, increasing the value of the appointments.

Increased Attendance

Experience has shown that when parents see all their appointment times clustered together, they have a better chance of attending. Similarly, lightly-loaded teachers with long wait times often don't attend an evening but arrange appointments separately - but with ParentEve, all their appointments are together and they are more likely to attend.

Compatible

ParentEve can import data directly from Capita's SIMS, or from other systems via CSV file export. Appointment requests can be imported via CSV exports from common parent portals such as Moodle, or it supports simple one-click manual entry of appointments. Schedules can be printed, emailed, mail merged or exported back into parent portals.

Version 4.3.0 Released

6th February 2015

A new major release of ParentEve is now available - version 4.3.0. This release introduces integration with the SIMS management system from Capita, which is used in a majority of UK schools. ParentEve 4.3 can call SIMS reports directly and import the data without you having to do a manual export and manual import. Other new features are:

  • You can import priority when importing appointment requests from a web portal or spreadsheet
  • The right-click menu now appears on blank (unbooked) squares on the overview screen
  • Unlock codes and user settings are now stored in the user's roaming profile instead of their local machine, which helps when ParentEve is installed in network environments

All current users are recommended to upgrade to this version - Download ParentEve here for free or click "Check for Updates" in ParentEve's help menu.

Version 4.2.3 Released

28th January 2015

A new release (version 4.2.3) of ParentEve is now available, incorporating feedback we received from our recent appearance at the BETT Show in London. Changes in this release are:

  • Added an option to leave gaps between appointments only when parents change location.
  • You can add parents, pupils and teachers while the schedule is locked.
  • Bugfix: All available times are now shown when manually booking an appointment. Previously it would not allow you to book right next to an existing one if the software was set to leave gaps between appointments.
  • Bugfix: Sending a single email for a pupil now works correctly - it sends to the parent instead. Previously it would fail as pupils cannot have email addresses defined.
