Users can sign up for an account either on the Squad in touch website or via the Squad in Touch mobile app which is available for installation from the App Store and Google Play.
Details every user is required to provide include:
- Name and Surname;
- Email address;
- Mobile phone number;
- Password for accessing an account.
The Email address and mobile phone number the user specifies will be used for verification purposes, a different verification code will be sent to a users email address and phone number; the platform won’t allow an individual to proceed with the registration unless both codes have been confirmed. Please note a mobile number and email address can only be associated to one account, if for any reason your email address or mobile number has already been used please get in touch with the Squad in touch team. firstname.lastname@example.org
When a parental user signs up, they can add details about the child(ren) they are requesting to be linked to. This is up to the school to specify the required information the parents need to fill out; , the options are;
- First Name
- Last Name
- Form Group
We can turn on the option to enable parental Auto-accepting; when a parent is automatically accepted onto your school Squad In Touch platform. This can be based on factors of your choosing;
- Emergency contact details (name/phone number and/or email address);
- Unique code that can be provided by the school or assigned by Squad in Touch.
When a parent is auto-accepted they will be linked with their child(ren). The alternative to this would be to accept each parent individually
When you choose that students can sign up for their own accounts an auto-accepting option based on unique codes can be turned on for them also.
Please get in touch with our support team if you would like your school settings in relation with parents/students auto-accepting or set of data a parent specifies about their children when signing up to be changed.
